I find it funny they use macs and windows comes with his music
Music Power (1 year ago)
treesap Because macs use all thier own part they are less prone to crash or lock up making them the go to operating environment. When you are in a commercial environment where every second counts you can't afford to have your computer acting up.

ommagod this is almost the perfect way to do music: have all the fun by making sounds & noises and then get someone else to do the boring, tedious shit like recording & sequencing...

+hevquip Most painfull part for me is arranging a track, always think the progression is too linear, a total head wreck.

"you don't want to completely smother the track with stapler noises" haha
saftpackerl (5 years ago)
That Stapler in that corridor sounds so nice! Love it! very creative... You can hear that real instruments are recorded here. and i would have loved to see a bit more of the playing and recording takesof the synths, the organ, the clavinet! The track is very unique, the only thing a find the Voyager Bass a little bit too off. I know that he was aiming for that anti quantize feel, but it sounded too much off, too lazy imho :)
Mac intoSser (5 years ago)
I also prefer 7+8 to 9 or even X.
