i think liam in the very beginning used up to 3 roland w-30 synths (synth+sampler+sequencer) as his live-controlling-system, linked them together, played for example the lead synth live, while the rest of the song where running as patterns on these synths… and i still think he uses midi on stage, without a computer… but he must have some kind of a hardware sequencer-controller-board or something… it’s quite an interesting subject… can’t imagine what a spaghetti-cable-mess he has to deal with
As far as live shows are concerned, it took about a year, but he has finally filled his laptop with everything he needs to tour. Well, almost everything. He also uses a little mixer, and an effects unit. But soon he will be eradicating the mixer and effects unit, so basically it will just be one computer. It does everything he did before with live samples and sequences. He has put every element down on a digital track in Digidesign’s Pro Tools, so he can mix between tracks.
last sunday i played a show at a converted metal bar … the place still had a large stage and big speakers, just now … . they let us experimental electronic kids loose on the system rather than guys in their 30s with long hair …
i can’t wait till someone in my krew gets a laptop … my mate ovrthrstr has done wicked things with renoise in realtime that makes v.snare sound soft … until then i guess we’ll have to make all our noize with gameboys and korg machines hehe
Yeah, thanks alot Hehe love ur music it’s awesome.
Me and a friend have been discussing maybe to hook up, buy some gear and start some serious music making. I mean, me and him both got the same taste in music so we both have started doing some “investigating”, like what should we start buyin etc. Me, I’m waiting for my Roland Edirol PCR-50 just to get that real-time piano touch. (Alot easier making songs on a midi-keyboard than on a computerkeyboard.)
This friend of mine is talking about a drum machine tho, but they’re like VERY expensive. Me, I think nice wav samples in renoise would do the trick tho hehe Then again, i’ve been using fasttracker for 5 years before i found renoise so i guess i’m still pretty attached to the whole fasttacker gui/way of making music.
