Oscillation Communications

Interviewee: Ras David Fishe


MusicTech: Tell us about your studio?

Ras David Fishe: Oscillation Communications is based in New Orleans, and it’s a home studio, with occasional pro work/projects.

MT: Give us a run down of the gear in the studio…

Akai MPC1000; Dave Smith Instruments Mopho and Tetra analogue synthesiser modules;

Access Virus B desktop synthesiser; Roland SH-32 desktop synth, TB-3 Touch Bassline, JP-08 module and JX-10 synth; Waldorf Blofeld desktop synth; Korg microKorg (now cut down into a keyless module); Korg microSampler, Kaoss Pad KP3 and R3 Synth/Vocoder; SammichSID synth module (it uses two SID MOS 8580R5 chips – the same ones used in a Commodore 64 – for 8-bit video-game-type sounds and beats); Kawai K1m desktop synth; ARP Avatar synth; Moog MG-1 synth; Ensoniq ESQ-1 hybrid synth; Zoom R24 and H2n recorders. The MPC1000 is my main sequencer and sampler and enables a lot of improvisation during shows, as does the KP3 Kaoss Pad. Together, as a whole, my all-hardware setup makes for plenty of live synthesis and modulations, dependent on what I and the crowd are feeling. In the studio, it provides a wide range of possibilities for whatever sounds I am attempting to wrench from my mind, be it analogue, digital or hybrid based.
