I enjoy creating music and my own synth patches with my computer band:

Thanks for listening :)

Feedback and comments welcome!
Below is a non-exhaustive list of things that i use to create music.

My computer band :)

  • Ableton Live - Digging step recording mode and session view.  
  • FL Studio 11 - Because i can't say FruityLoops 3.56 anymore. 

Kontakt 5 (player):
  • Drumlab -  A mixture of acoustic & electronic drums.
  • Session Horns - Horns quartet with many articulations. 
  • Scarbee Rickenbacker Bass - Bass guitar.

  • Massive - One word: Versatile! My go to synth. 
  • FM8 - Crystal clear sound, great arpeggiator, can be used as an effect. 
  • Phoscyon - For an acid touch,  i use this emulation of the popular silver box. 
  • Medusa 2 - A cute synth aimed toward chiptune, very fun to use.
  • Charlatan - Probably my favourite free synth. Very simple, very powerful, great for beginners. 
  • eFemme - Great for warm "vintage" pads. 
  • NI Driver - Distortion filter  with many modulation possibilities. 
  • NI Supercharger - Compressor, pretty useful on drums, or bass. 
  • NI Replika - My go-to delay unit, can be used as a reverb as well. 
  • iZotope DDLY - When i need an experimental delay :)
  • TDR Kotelnikov - Compressor with M/S mode.
  • TDR SlickEQ - Equalizer with M/S mode.
  • TDR Nova - Based on Nova-67P, it is an EQ/Compressor, and does a bit of everything. 
  • BitterSweet V3 - Transient Shaping tool.
  • Voxengo SPAN - Frequency Analyzer.
  • A1 TriggerGate - Advanced trancegate with env follower, delay and filters, and it's free!
  • A1 Stereo Control - Keeps your bass mono and your pads wide!
  • TAL Plugins - Various effects. You can't go wrong with those. 
  • HY Plugins - Read above ;)
  • Limiter n6 - Multistage limiter, the final line of defense against the evil Inter Sample Peaks ^^
  • Sennheiser HD 25-1 II 
  • Bose speakers - Because i need to check my mix in mono, sometimes!
  • Akai LPD8 - Launchpad/Knob twiddling duties^^
  • M-Audio Keystation Mini32
  • A computer, a keyboard and a mouse ;)


Zebra 3 :D
Reaktor 6, monophonic blocks are simple and sound really nice.
FabFilter Plugins

Go back to music stores in Shibuya, and Ochanomizu and buy some gems.
(If you ever visit tokyo, i recommend going there, they let you test everything!)
