In terms of keyboards, Vrenna notes, “I just like big, shiny keyboards with lots of lights. My sampler is still an E-mu: the E4 Ultra. I still use it every day of my life. They discontinued them because they've gone software, as well with the new E-mu X Series, so I've been picking up used E-mu's out of the Recycler and eBay and building a couple more hardware samplers just so I have them.” His arsenal also includes a Waldorf Microwave XT, Kurzweil K2000/R, Roland V Synths, an old Virus updated “as far as it will go,” a Nord Lead 2, Alesis Andromeda A6 and “a good old trusty JP8000.”more
In the video where Moonlight Matters is taking Future Music Magazine on a tour of his studio, at 0:6:30 he says "So, let's move on. We are now moving on to the Andromeda. As I said it's probably the most versatile analog synth I have in my studio. The reason for that is because it just has a lot of modulation possibilities that other analog subtractive synths don't have".more
For pads we usually use the Andromeda or try to layer something with the Prophet. With the Prophet there's a sort of Blade Runner-esque thing you can't really get from anything else. I use a lot of weird little freeware shit. [Krakli Software's] Cygnus is the best thing ever for spacey pads. It's like Absynth but just made for those sort of sounds in the background. If something that looks good comes out I just buy it.more
