Hello OTT, i am a bit late to the party as i bought my first album by you (MIR) the other week. I was quite awestruck by it and when i listen to it, it feels to me like i have come home. I have started making music as a hobby and will be 50 this year and am thinking of selling a few items in order to treat myself to a poly synth for my birthday. Any recommendations?
I'm fifty next birthday too and you're not a moment too late. Welcome to the family.
I would highly recommend the Korg Minilogue. It's beautifully designed, sounds amazing, no hidden menus to confound and confuse, it is highly specified and capable but not pointlessly complex, with one-knob-per-function, making it the perfect learner's synth. It also has a neat and informative oscilloscope to teach you about wave shapes.
And it's cheap for what it is.
I'm getting one myself.
Ahoy there! There are many things I'd like to say, but right now I'm most interested in the set-up you're using for the all seeing eye.
1. What is the in-ear monitor system you're using?
2. How much of the drums are on the backing track?
3. Do you have everything "preset" in a digital mixer to get a similar sound to the record (i.e all drum channels processing effects etc)?
Keep on making great music and thank you!!
I remember asking a few years back what your thoughts where on playing any local gigs... Myself and a big groupe of Torbay/Totnes humanoids are stoked for the Phoenix this Saturday!
All the best Ott.
