I have been asked this a few times.
If i could choose any band to tour with who would it be? 1st Choice Ohgr, yes the band Ohgr or Skinny Puppy? Why? Ogre is one of my favorite people to ever walk this earth, that’s why. Oh yeah, and i love his lyrics so much. From Puppy to Ohgr, I to this day am a huge fan.
When a fan sent me this picture, and said, ogre said something about touring with VAC i shit my pants. no shit. The fact that ogre even acknowledged VAC blows my fucking mind.
2nd choice is Wumpscut. The world needs wumpscut. To me, wumpscut has made tons and i mean tons of industrial club hits. So many. More than me, More than most of the dudes from the 80s, and certainly more than even the kings of future pop. Sadly, this will never ever happen, and beleive me, I have tried, begged, pleaded, offered to put it together, be his band, etc.. nope never nein.
Latency? I fucking hate it. It kills my inspiration. In the box, in a DAW, by the time i get a good drum sound, i have processed the hell out of it and my cpu and latency buffers get raised, then writing music becomes absolutely no fun at all. I like to play the drums, the riffs. When the latency is high, its no fun at all. This is why i went back to an all hardware setup. Sure bye bye vst effects, but you know what, i hate them. After working with todd loomis at his studio using a vari mu, and an ssl g bus compressor. I HATE SOFTWARE, even the UAD stuff ALL of it. out of the box hardware into an analog mix sounds better than ITB, and better than itb compressors. Its so much fun to write music again with no latency. I think it makes it way easier and more inspiring. The virus, the new nords, yes they sound better than diva, hive, and all the vsts i own. especially on an analog mixer. I am a lot happier out of the box.
