My most important gear! Rompling "computer", estonian "Pille" and Otamatone tiger. ;)


Gear

I don't use software synths, gigasamplёr type stuff, аbleton, plugins - I wholeheartedly despise them all. Only pure rack synth, sampling and effects on MIDI seq plus hardware multitrack.

Oldschool tube processing
  • Erica Synths modular gear of all shapes and sizes.
  • Many kinds of ethnic and acoustic insturments, mostly string, mallet, wind and percussion.
  • Roland/boss gear, including a bunch of old school analog. Some of the things woth a mention would be JX-8P, MKS-50 (alpha juno rack), VP-9000, JP-8000, JD-990, JV-2080 x3, JV-1010 x2, U-220 x3, U-110 x2, D-110 x2, D-50, VP, XP, XV, SH, Fantom-X x3, sweet old sound canvas 7 & 88, GT-Pro and all of the GT-s up to 10B, VG-8, SRV-2000, and many, many more.

  • Yamaha gear, including virtual acoustic and weird sYnging (proto-Miku) things. Sweet FM classic like TX-7, TX-81Z, DX-21, DX-27 and FB-01 plus a truckload of PSR vintages like 16, 32 (Adlib chip!), 36, 100; FM+AWM vector TG-33 or non-vector PSR-47; W7; miscellaneous MK, SHS and PSS series Square/FM/AWM/AWM2 toys, shameful Motif-rack XS for a few good sounds, less shameful MUs; Analog SK-20; VL winds; SG japanese singer-in-a-box;
  • Ensoniq, Alesis, Akai, Novation, Oberheim, Vermona and Emu classic gear. Favourites being a pair of Proteus2000 (packed with wave expansions, favourite of hose are Phatt, Orche, World, Protozoa) and all ESIs, EMAX, E6400, S3000XL, Matrix, OB-12, Ion, Micron and QuadraSynth.

Erica Synth rackmounted ПОЛИВОКС.
    I can also do a lo-fi master using vintage soviet mixing console diectly to soviet four-track or even an absolute vintage tube mono tape reel-to-reel overdub recorder. For such occasions, vintage soviet microphones can also be used, as I have a plenty of them, including even carbon ones.
  • A lot of other weird digital and analog synth gear from Casio, Technics, Farfisa, Viscount, Kawai, Orla, Vermona and what not. Including also probably a hundred chinese table hooters (most of them significantly improved, e.g. modified/bent with, for example, balanced studio i/o, FM input, imrpoved SNR and PSRR). Vintage Casios including CZ-5000, CT-6000, MT-68, MT-400V, MT-520, RZ-1, CSM-1, CSM-10P, PT, KT, MA, SA et cetera.
  • Effects rack is made up of array of Digitech StudioQuad 2/4/400, IPS33, S100, RDS, DSP, Twin, a few TSRs, a few RPs, a pair of VHM-5; Alesis Midiverb-1/2/3/4, Quadraverb, Akira; Boss GT-Pro, GX-700, VF-1, SE-50&70; Korg DVP-1; Roland SRV-2000; Yamaha SPX-90 and the weird R1000; Viscount EFX-10, HP-3; Lexicon, Zoom and what not.
  • Pump organs, accordeons, melodions - I've got a soft spot for those as wel.
  • I also design my own digital and analog gear. More on it - coming soon. Also, take a look&listen at my latest analog VCO and VCF modules in youtube/muffwiggler.
