Legowelt Studio Tour Tech Tuesdays

Hailing from The Hague, Dutch electronic musician Legowelt (Danny Wolfers) opened the doors to his gear-packed home studio, and inside we found synths-on-synths-on-synths.  You can watch the guided video tour, courtesy of Future Magazine, below.  Here’s also an excerpt from his interview with Attack Magazine.

“This is the fifth incarnation of my studio setup in my new house. When I moved into the house last year I sold a lot of stuff, like my giant 32-channel Tascam M3700 mixer (that thing just pissed me off), my Korg MS-20 and my Sequential Circuits Prophet 600. I also bought some new stuff like my Roland JD-800 and Crumar BIT99.

I have a lot of monitors set up. They each have their own character and after working with them for some time I know what I should listen for and how to make the mixdown better. What we’ve got is a bunch of Dynaudio BM5s, Alesis Monitor One MK2s, Yamaha HS50s, Bang & Olufsen hi-fi speakers from the 70s and a grotbox and monitor controller from Behringer so I can easily switch around them all.

There are around 30 synths and keyboards of all sorts laying around. Most of them are shoved against the wall and whenever I want to use one I connect it to the mixer. Sequencing is done either by hardware sequencers like the Yamaha RM1X or QY series, my Roland MC500 mk2, Korg Electribes or with the computer. Computer-wise there’s a Mac running Ableton 8 and Reason 6.5 and an Amiga 1200 running Octamed and Deluxe Paint so I can also do 90s-style video graphics.”

Legowelt’s latest album, Crystal Cult 2080, which is titled for and prominently features the Roland JV2080 synthesizer, is out now on Netherlands-based label Creme Organization – you can preview it below and order it here.
