Bloc Party’s Gordon Moakes was the first famous user to kick off Novation’s on-line blogs, and he has just been joined by another couple of high profile players. Zac Baird, Korn’s keyboard player, is currently on a world tour with the band and has recently added this comment to his blog…
“I wanted to take something small along so I could write if the mood struck,” he says. “I’ve tried a lot of different controllers on the market but the ReMOTE SL has to be the best combination of synth feel and piano reality. It’s very easy for me to play hip-hop leads or get the real touch for soft synth pianos. The keys are just super-smooth and very expressive.”
Robbie Bronnimann has produced and written for artists including The Sugababes, Howard Jones and Andy Hunter and remixed for the likes of Chicane, Ferry Corsten, Art Of Trance, Mogwai and Young Punx not to mention his own artist albums and 12"s under the names dba & tektonik^.
He notes in his blog: “I find myself between the comfy surroundings of my studio producing two albums simultaneously & flitting all over the world playing as an electronic duo with Howard Jones. I’ve been using the Novation ReMOTE range which has been the backbone of my touring work for a few years.
And it’s with this particular aspect of my current work that I will now be giving the Nocturn a full workout alongside my trusty ReMOTE 37 SL.”
So why not see how Robbie and Zac get on and head on over to www.novationmusic.com/blogs now and comment! More artists will also be offering their experiences very soon!
