Kitchen Notes : neat_less on More Monsters

Tout prolifique qu'il soit, Philipp Münch trouve même le temps de répondre aux questions qu'on lui pose à propos de la réalisation de More Monsters, la dernière sortie de son projet darkelectro neat_less que je n'avais pas vu venir. Cà aurait dommage été passer à côté d'une excellente surprise. Et depuis quand n'avez vu pas vu de D110 utilisé ?

As prolific as he can be, Philipp Münch even find the time to answer questions on his More Monsters release, the last delivery for his Darkelectro project neat-less I didn't see coming. It would have been a pity to miss such an excellent surprise. And since when did you have seen a D110 in use ?

Gears and software

What gears/softwares did you use for More Monsters ?

recording and mixing: Ableton Live 10 Standard, Soundtoys Suite

rhythm: roland D 110, roland t 8, roland mc 101, roland mc 707, roland tr 6s, behringer rd 8

synths: behringer cat, model d, wasp, prophet 800, td 3 mo, Roland S 1, Roland MC 101, Korg Opsix, Korg Delta, Korg MS 20, Roland D 110, Soma Lyra 8, custo eurorack modular, dsi evolver, pioneer as-1

Your favorite gear(s)/software(s) ?

I like all all of my synths, it depends on the music i make which ones are most suitable.

Any evolution in your setup ?

Some instruments come and go, others stay here for ages

Sound Design

Do you use/tweak presets  ?

Mostly I’m doing my own synth sounds from scratch

Do you design you own sound  ? On which synth/plugin in particular ?

Yes, on my hardware setup. I’m not a big fan of software synth. I need that haptic feeling

Personal synth story ?

I started playing with synths in the late 80ies. there would be too many stories to tell…

Writing/composing method

What would be your main writing/composing method ? Do you start classical rythm/bassline then arrange around it ? Do you already have structure in mind ? Do you improvise, record sessions then select ? ...

I have some vague ideas, most comes by playing around. Discovering, experimentaton, the joy of the game itself. Usually lyrics come after most of the music is done.

Producing/mixing method

Do you produce/mix in the box or do you use mainly external gears (effect/comp/eq...)

Even if I love hardware synths I do all the mixing in the box. my space is limited, and this is the most effective way to do it.

What is your most painful / enjoyable step in track production ? Sound design, arrangement, mixing, mastering ?

All steps are part of the game and they all are enjoyable. since i’m doing my music for pleasure and not for living i can do or leave what i want.

Philipp's Tips

Take the time to discover the possibilities of your instrument. don’t buy that much. less is more.
