Kaiser Chiefs choose IK Multimedia
Phenomenally successful British alt rock band Kaiser Chiefs were formed in 2003 and their debut album, Employment, released in 2005, shipped over 3 million copies across the world. Tracks such as 'Ruby','I Predict A Riot' and 'Everyday I Love You Less And Less' have been major selling singles for the band who continue to tour heavily. And not forgetting their inclusion in the various versions of the Guitar Hero game.
IK Multimedia recently spoke with keyboard player Nick Baines, known to fans as 'Peanut', who has been an IK user for many years.
He told them:
"Nick (Hodgson,drums) and I are the studio-heads in the band. We were using T-RackS way back when we were making the early Kaiser Chiefs demos and in the band we were in before that too!"
He then continues:
"T-RackS was our saviour as we were doing the best recordings we could manage with borrowed mics, mattresses for vocal booths and an old digital 8-track thing - everything went through T-RackS and it always came out better!"
"Initially the standalone version was all that was available when we first started using T-RackS, but now the Singles offer much more flexibility in our projects, we love those vintage EQ and Compressor modules, and we recently took delivery of the full Deluxe version - which blows us away!"
Peanut uses T-RackS 3 Deluxe, T-RackS 3 Singles and CSR Classik Studio Reverb in his studio.
