  1. Very nice… Fascinating.

    I’m in the process of learning how to multitask with my synths (have a Virus and a Minilogue, about to get a drum machine). THis is a total noob question… he’s obviously triggering some of the changes with a sequencer, but I don’t really see him doing it. Is he possibly using footpedals, OR is his sequencer likely mapped out to trigger things after a certain number of measures and such? I’m trying to better understand the technical side of how people do what he’s doing. Thanks.

    1. hes got an MPC back there, id imagine its just running a linear sequence of the whole song and hes just playing live parts on top of that…

    2. Thanks, everyone.

      I see the MPC being used a lot, is it the current models or older ones that most people seem to use?

    3. I’m really trying to figure out the best sequencer I can use without a computer. Elektron Octatrak seems nice but a bit out of my price range.

    Good question … I’d be very interested in knowing this too… the actual mechanics of how a performance like this is put together is quite often a mystery if you’re not a gigging performer.

  3. So let’s get this straight.. He doesn’t just pretend to look busy by adjusting knobs and sliders while jigging badly to a really lame beat he thinks is the best thing ever?

    You mean he actually plays the keyboards and makes music?

    Well done.
