First off, Loving the new album (including the cat purr) and thank you for allowing me to contribute I love seeing my picture in the book of awesome (I'm the guy standing up with a Harris Hawk perched on one hand). The question I'd like to ask is, in a lot of your music you have this effect that breaks up the sound like in the Matrix film and goes all bitcrusher-like. Please can you tell me what bit of kit you used to do that? Thanks in advance, John Davies.
I use many different things. For 'bitcrushing' I like to use an old 1980s 8bit digital delay with a control voltage to manipulate the sample time [and, therefore, frequency] outside of standard operational parameters.
Or I'll just use the standard Cubase bitcrusher plugins. Whichever is easiest.
OTT, i was fascinated to read your comment "I used to use Logic, years ago - Blumenkraft and Skylon were made with it"..... because for years I seem to have been particularly drawn towards those 2 albums of yours, and more recently I find I seem to have become particularly drawn towards gaining a thorough understanding of the "Logic" app. I had not previously realised that there might have been some unconscious connection going on... or something. Well, whatever, thank you for Blumenkraft and Skylon, they are both masterpieces. :-)Ott responded on 09/01/2015 Next question
If you yourself were to listen to Blumenkraft & Skylon, just as 'an ordinary listener at home' (so to speak), what kind of audio equipment would you IDEALLY like to listen on ?Ott responded on 09/01/2015
