In MusicRadar's interview with Depeche Mode's techs on the Delta Machines tour it was revealed that ""Sample wise we're using Native Instruments Kontakt and Massive a lot too. We're also using a lot of GMedia ImpOSCar and Synthogy Ivory for pianos too. There are some sounds you can't get with the synths, so we use the samples for those, but there's a lot we can do and we try to use the synths as much as possible. Stripped is a good example of that. The big lead sound is Massive and ImpOSCar all layered up to create that main riff sound." Martin is strictly using software when he puts his guitars down for older material, he has a Roland Edirol controller as well as an Access Virus both commanding Muse Receptors with various plugins loaded.more
In an interview with DM's road crew during the Delta Machines tour keyboard tech Paul Eastman told MusicRadar "This is Fletch's rig. He does a lot of the baselines off the Virus Polar here. And then there are two Edirol PCR-800 controllers, each of which triggers one the Receptors. There are two Receptors per player, and each is doing the same thing. They're pretty standard Edirol controllers but they're very good. He generally plays on this one and the other is the backup. If there are any problems he can just play the other one and the backup Receptor." Detailed pictures of Fletch's Virus, Edirol controllers and Receptors (with his name stamped right on his 2 Receptor racks) are included in the body of the article.more
“The Muse Receptor has become an integral part of the live setup. We’ve got five of those on stage, plus more in the studio. Basically, they allow you to take anything from the studio and put it in front of a live audience without it feeling like you’re just playing along to backing tracks.”more
From an interview with Boom Gaspar and Josh Evans on Keyboard Mag. "The combination of the grittiness of a vintage B-3, the reliability and quality of the Nord Stage, and the flexibility of the Receptor and [Native Instruments] Kontakt allows Boom to have a good hybrid between vintage keyboard sounds and modern synthesis and expandability."more
