"What’s your go-to drum machine?"
"Basically I have this all happening inside the computer; the drum program I use all the time is Maschine. It has a control surface that's like the old MPC drum machines from the '80s; they made all those hip hop beats with drum pads. But the main thing is that you can have a collection of every drum sound you've collected and load them up as your own personal, eclectic drum kit and build from there.

"What's your desert island synth?" "I have a vintage Juno, but now I have this program called Sylenth that's just an amazing combination of synthesizer and sampler. On this record I would sing a note or a sound instead of trying to search for sound files that I wanted. I knew what I wanted, so I would literally just sing it, record myself singing it, and then put it into this program and play it on a keyboard as a synthesizer sound. Which was this really cool way to really create these hyper-personal sounds that nobody else had."
