hi felix,

me and all my friends love your stuff out in australia so i hope you tour here soon..

few q's:

1) what synth do you mainly use in reason? the thor?

2) how do you choose what tracks you remix? are you approached by other artists to remix their stuff?

3) do you use reason's in built compressors, eqs etc? or export to pro tools and do all that in there

4) do you think understanding music theory is important for electronic music producers?

sorry to hit you with all that as im sure you are very busy.

thanks

Look, all I'm saying is, if these big stars didn't want people going through their garbage and saying they're gay, then they shouldn't have tried to express themselves creatively.

1) I use the Malstrom prettty much exclusively, and the NN-XT Sampler a bit as well

2) As for tracks I've remixed, all the remixes that I've been commissioned to do I've been contacted by the artist or label. If it's a bootleg or edit (like the Britney Spears remix), I just did it for myself, and has no affiliation with the actual artist.

3) I've mastered basically all my tracks entirely in Reason, so yes I use the compressors and EQ's built-in to the program

4) I don't think music theory is necessary, but I think a musical ear is important. I mean knowing the circle of fifths isn't going to be the saving grace between making or breaking an excellent producer, but being able to hear a melody and able to duplicate it on your own terms is helpful.

hope this helps!

Hi Felix,
Though I would start with the question of how are you today? (no one seems to ask that I think its just polite)
Anyway I just have a question about drums. Ok I'v been produceing in ableton for about a year now and have some really good synth sounds but only have one kick and snare sound that I really like by sampleing it from Grandmasters 'Roof is on Fire'. I do like that sound but It's far to big sounding for all my productions, I was wondering what you do?
If you heard a really good kick sound in a song do you usually just borrow that or do you try and create your own, and if so could you give any advice on produceing a really nice punchy kick and snare sound?

Thanks Felix keep making cool music!!

felix what kinda return tracks do you have set up in ableton when you play live, actually i guess a better question is how do you organize them, do you have multiple eq controls in one return and say multiple compressors in another and you can switch them off on and on or do you have a track for each effect.

also, do you cut your tracks up into pieces for your live sets so you can do lots of layers or are you using loops that you set up on the spot

thanks for any input!

Hey Felix, I've got a couple questions:

First, do you have a day job, or is your music pretty much how you make money?

Second, I use Reason myself, and really dig what you can make it do. But mixing in it seems to be a pain. Do you have trouble with that or have any tricks?

Thanks a bunch and love your stuff

I was in school and working up until sept 2008, but touring schedule has been hectic and now music is what i do full time, it's amazing .

as for mixing in reason, i find really pushing the red line within the program works, dont be afraid to clip out in Reason because it wont clip out in exporting, it compensates for redlining and really will just give you a fuller sound,

*Parisienne* is a good example of this, i really set out to make a track as abrasive as the program would allow me, it's entirely mixed in reason.
