I don’t know how anyone could use this for making normal sounds really because the tuning is so bad… or maybe I just have to open it up and recalibrate it. I got it for nothing on eBay and when I opened up the case it was filled with dirt. Maybe it was a leftover from a flood or something. Anyways, it actually works – I’m just not sure what it’s been doing the last 20 years."more
"I also used a bunch of different modules as well as the René. I've got lots of Intellijel modules, and I put a lot of parts through the Korgasmatron for shaping and stereo filtering or phasing effects. I also use both my Prophets, the 5 and the 8, just because they're the best pad machines out there. They're so rich. I use the [Roland] Juno and the [Korg] MS20s a lot, and I used the Siel Orchestra quite a bit and my [Yamaha] CS30s. I use everything. I just kind of sit there and everything's in arm's reach. I have a little bit of a preference towards the more recent stuff, but seeing as everything's there, I will use it."more
