"Although Numan writes all of his music on an aged upright piano, slowly adding effects, synth sounds and big beats, he also works with modern gear: Emagic Logic Audio Platinum and Digidesign Pro Tools on an Apple Mac G4 with two iZ Technology RADAR 24 digital recorders and a Mackie d8b desk. His synths are both soft and hard: Korg Wavestation, Alesis QuadraSynth, Korg M1, Roland D50 LA, GEM S2 Turbo and a Korg electric piano."more
To complement his sample library, Blank has also built up a sizeable collection of synths over the years, including not only classic analogue synths such as the Oberheim Matrix 12, Sequential Circuits Pro One and ARP Odyssey but also more recent digital offerings like the Roland D50, Yamaha SY77 and Korg Wavestation.more
"Here is my main studio setup these days: Macintosh computer, Otari 8-track and Soundcraft mixer, Yamaha DX7II and TX81Z, Ensoniq EPS16+, Korg Wavestation, Sequential Prophet 5 and SixTrack, Casio CZ101, Lexicon reverbs, Eventide H3000, delays and other procesors, steel guitar, bamboo and clay flutes, percussion, etc. etc."more
Hillage is fully conversant with both the modern technology of synths, samplers, sequencers and digital audio recording and the impact that this technology has had on the roles of musician and producer, a consequence of his years spent working in studios as a producer. Today, a hi-tech gear setup which includes a Korg Wavestation, two Akai S1000s, an E-Mu Proteus and C-Lab's Creator sequencing software running on an Atari 1040ST allows him to work on ideas and put tracks together at home.more
"One of the keyboards I was using heavily at the time was a Korg Wavestation and it could synthesize single-cycle waves, move them around and resequence them in different orders so it could effectively simulate filter sweeps. I meticulously sampled many keyboards at different cut-off points to get single-cycle wave samples and by getting into the nitty-gritty of sub-routines, I was able to introduce portamento and filter-sweep into what sounds like a synth line at the very beginning. Those little sounds, that were supposedly impossible to do on a SNES, I was particularly proud of.”more
"Adams does his composing at his home studio in Berkeley, which consists of several Yamaha keyboards, including an SY77, SY99 and Electone, Korg Wavestation, Emu Proteus 1 module and Emax II, Kurzweil K2000, Lexicon LXP15 reverb, Macintosh computer with software such as Performer and Blank Software's Alchemy, and a small 16-channel desk ("I can't remember the name. I only use this studio for writing, and I write as much with the sequencer as with pen, paper and piano")."more
