After a while in exodus I have been getting more and more into synths again. The MiniBrute from Arturia has caught my attention for obvious reasons.
What other synths do I need to check out?
Song of the day: Tricky - Valentine (Andy Stott remix).
Song of the day: Nine Inch Nails - And All That Could Have Been.
This is a personal favorite of mine, and is found on the album Still.
This delay pedal, Cloudbuster from Skychord, is really interesting. It changes the tones into sheer chaos and creates some massive drones.
So Nine Inch Nails continue to disappoint…
I get that Trent wants to evolve and not play the same songs over and over, but this sounds NOTHING like NIN. Actually, it sounds more like his crappy side project, How To Destroy Angels, than anything NIN-related.
It becomes clear that NIN was Clouser, Dillon, Finck and Lohner.
Trent should just stick to scoring movies.
In case you didn’t know; electro wasn’t invented by Skrillex.
Here’s a great documentary about the history of synth and electro by BBC.
A lot of musicians claim that using programmed drums or a drum machine is “cheating” or whatever. After seeing Jeremy Ellis I have a feeling they would change their minds.
This guys is a wizard on the Native Instruments Maschine drum-pad.
