We’ve been getting into sampling up some pianos and lovely noises on logic recently. Anyone who knows the programme can appreciate how nice it is to play with sounds called Fear Noise and Phantom Winds. By the time it comes to play a live show we’ll no doubt have two samplers on stage with us, there’s one thing we’ve learnt in the past couple of years and that is, if you have an idea don’t let the fact there’s only three of you stop what could sound fantastic.
Getting to learn new equipment there’ll always be a struggle with technology and a preference to go back traditional instruments, but I’m glad to say I think we’re finally nailing a balance between the both. Letting the old way of things drive the songs and be the main force, then allowing new technologies to pad out the sound and give the songs new life.
My question to you all would be this, are you a traditional instrument musician or a futuristic programme everything on a computer type?….. OR is the thought of dabbling in both sides something to get you excited?
