Martin Landsky and Marco Resmann show us around Marco’s studio, where they worked on their recent collaborations.
Landsky & Resmann – My Studio
Hello, we are Martin Landsky and Marco Resmann and we’re sitting here in Marco’s studio. On the following pages we’d like to show you some of our favourite studio gear and the equipment we’ve used on our latest single, ‘Lava’, on Upon You.
Korg Volca Keys, Access Virus B & Eventide Stomp Boxes
Funnily enough, all of the main sounds in ‘Lava 1’ and ‘Lava 2’ are from this little Korg ‘toy’. Both Eventides – the Time Factor and Space – were our main delay and reverb effects for the whole EP. The good old Virus provided us with some nice arpeggios.
Roland RE-201 Space Echo
The Space Echo was again a reliable partner for depth and power. It worked wonders on the Korg Volca.
Vermona DRM-1 MkIII
The mighty Vermona drum machine delivered most of the additional drum sounds. We just loooove the clap!
DSI Prophet 12
The Prophet was the latest addition to the studio and it got used for the very first time here. It’s that juicy bassline in the dub version. Yummy!
Teenage Engineering OP-1, Keinemusik KD-7 & Soundcraft Ghost
The OP-1 and the KD-7 made a great couple for all the special effects and funny sounds.
The whole analogue mixdown of the EP was performed on the 32-channel Soundcraft Ghost.
All the chord and string sounds on the dub version are from the Juno. It has this instant classic deep techno sound we were looking for.
Fred The Ball
Oh, before we forget… the most important gadget in the studio was probably Fred The Ball. He ensured long late-night sessions were possible without back pain!
Landsky & Resmann’s Lava EP is out on February 23rd on Upon You.
