Couple things I was wondering:
-what tools he generally working with for production & mixing? Dude nailed the feel on those albums, everything that sounds best smooth is smooth and everything that works best w/ a lil dirt is still dirty.
-The lil bluesy guitar on "Time Machine", who played that? Krit got a guitarist, or did he do that part himself?
-For the "Country shit" remix were Luda & Bun in the studio at the same time? More of a curiosity than anything, since I read interviews on occasion where whoever is talking about a track says "oh, so'n'so just sent the vocal back after I sent the beat". Sometimes they do that and it sounds obvious, others it doesn't, and on that track the vibe is quite the coherent whole.
KRIT uses Reason, Recycle and Pro Tools. That's pretty much it. Everything was running through a rack mounted digi002 until about 4 months ago when he got a rack mounted digi003. That was the only change in his setup. Oh he added a Maschine to it but he barely uses it. I can only think of one beat he's done with the Maschine that's out for public consumption. He records himself using a Neumann microphone. I can't recall what the model is.
The guy playing on Time Machine is a guy KRIT's known for a while named Kirk. The guitar licks on that song are just parts KRIT chopped up from a session where he just had Kirk come in and shred for about 10 minutes straight. Here's an interesting tidbit about that beat. It has no sample. Other than the guitar licks he chopped up, all the instruments and drum programming is 100% KRIT.
Unfortunately Luda and Bun weren't in the studio w/ KRIT when the "Country Sh**" record was done. However, 8Ball & MJG were in the studio with us when his current single "Money On The Floor" was recorded. There some video of the session on youtube if you want to check it out.
