Big set ups small set ups…
When i was younger i’d see Tristram Cary step into his shed smoking his pipe amongst all these amazing vintage machines and think thats what i want to do one day.
My working day is that long i hardly get anytime to make music, i own some beautiful machines that hardly get used, I’m also aware that i’ll probably retire in 15 years time and once I’ve retired i’d like to spend the rest of my life making music, one of the reasons i keep buying gear.
I’m trying to put up shelves where i can (trying as i have no space) to store gear and grab them when i want to use them, even though my modular is quite big i usually select only 2 or 3 modules that session to patch and see what i can get out of them.
i was amazed how i had what sounded like an 60’s organ out of a portishead track with only a turing machine and cyclebox two items what should never of made that sound.
Basically I’ve got quite a lot of gear but when i do have time in the studio i only select a few items, at the moment my love is recording synths into the tascam 4-track, probably because i never owned a 4-track the first time around.
