Favourite Gear

The FMD Electronics VOC-10 vocoder module. I use it a lot and it’s also the only one there is. I know that, as I built it 20 years ago with pieces of schematics from the early 70s, but with modern low-noise components. The idea was to build a limited run of 20, but I ran out of money when I finished the first. I fell in love with it and kept it.

Top Tip

Stop what you are doing immediately. Use your brain and think. What is the purpose of the studio? What are you trying to achieve? If you don’t know, then restart the next day. It’s important to let things take time. I can answer this in this way after building this particular home studio. It’s my sixth or seventh home setup, and my main focus this time was not to just build a recording studio, but rather a clean place for inspiration.

Right now, it’s my Yamaha HS8 monitors. I love those monitors. Everybody loved the NS10s from back in the day, and I wanted something close to them.

Top Tip

The saying goes, ‘You can’t rush art’. You’re going to be making art in the studio, so take your time to perfect your art.

Native Instruments Maschine, because it’s the best of both worlds (in terms of both software and hardware).

Top Tip

You don’t always need the bells and whistles to make them sound just as good. Review everything you think you want – most of the time you get what you pay for, so don’t waste your money.
