Acclaimed Beatmaker Gives Glimpse Of How He Triggers Sounds And Routes His Gear
|By Amir Said (Sa’id)|
In this video, Needlz illustrates how he uses his Kurzweil K 2661 keyboard to trigger samples from the Akai MPC 2000 XL. Pay very careful attention while watching this video. Of course Needlz drops science, but there’s also a nice glimpse of his routing chains. And notice how he does use the 8 individual out from his MPC 2000 XL. Also, he points out how he’s actually more into vintage gear… hmmm… A post-90s era producer who uses vintage equipment to make contemporary music. That’s dope.
*Editor’s note. Recent reports and videos have surfaced showing Needlz now using the Maschine by Native Instruments as his main production tool.
