Noyzelab – Aphex Twin SYROBONKERS! Interview Part 1 & 2

Excerpt:

dave:how accurate is the gear list on syro?

rich: definitely not 100% and there are 1 or 2 mistakes, like i think it says i used a vocoder on the piano track , dot in wrong place or i prob did it wrong, it is mostly right though but misses out a shit load of outboard as i couldn’t remember every eq etc in my lodge.
There were a few plugins used but hardly anything and not worth mentioning really, it is 99.9% hardware not that it matters just sayin.
Plenty more eurorack modules as well obviously but i think i put down the main ones i could remember.
Actually the whole equipment list is pretty weird choices on there actually pretty normal/odd for me i think, its definitely not showing off when u take into account what else I’ve got! just so happened those particular tracks used those things.
the birds on that piano track by the way were picked up by the mic’s at the same time, i angled them slightly towards the doors to pick it up, the birds hear what I’m doing also !-)
Oh and its all programmed, I think I’ve almost got to the point now when i can think music and then program it pretty much in one go, not quite but almost, it was never an ambition actually, it just happened that way.
Most people I know who heard it think its played, which is a really nice complement, coz every little timing imperfection in that is purposefully programmed in…i find it very mediative doing such tiny little things, tempo is regular though so it could be mixed with amen break :)
