  1. how is this good look at the amount of toys he has there,bet you most people could do this with his resources,,guess thats why they price it out of the poor peoples price range,,so rich fools keep making lame music

    1. actually a lot of that gear (volca and aira stuff) is on the budget end, they’re affordable, uncomplicated gear with a pretty solid sound. add some reasonably nice outboard gear and you’ve got a great sound. Spending your money wisely on cost-efficient gear is not something only rich people can do.

    2. Exactly on the contrary I think, Look at what he’s using! All of them except the analog four are the new affordable wave of performance hardware, Volcas, Airas, a kaoss pad, and even the analog four is relatively cheap and given all it does is probably one of the most cost effective thousand bucks you can spend.

    3. Look at his youtube videos. I’ve been following him for a while. He started out a couple years ago posting stuff with just monotrons and a monotribe, and the setup grew very gradually piece by piece. IMO, he uses the gear he has much better than anyone else posting songs on youtube. It’s clear he knows how to use each piece of gear, something lots of gear addicts struggle with (because they buy so much but never learn the equipment). Very impressive what he’s doing, and he does it well. It takes talent to do this, not just gear.

  2. My rough estimate is $4200 all new. Probably cut that by a third with used. That’s less than a good apple laptop and a fistful of production software. At the end of the day though, some people get expensive cars, at least with instruments you can try to make nice things for people, even if you can’t please all the people all the time.

  3. This is a beautiful piece. I really like the selected setup and I like the way, the “Ghosts” are doing their magic. Those who just look at gear and pricetag should open their ears instead – compared to all these senseless “beep tรผรผt beep” musikmesse sounds, this is a well received change..
