Caustic Grip

Welcome to GS, Rhys!

What can you tell us about the gear and production on Caustic Grip? Loved that album and caught the tour in a tiny club in Gainesville, FL.. but can't remember any of the gear on stage.

Thanks for doing this!

Hi there..
Caustic was made with minimal gear - An Atari ST, Akai s1000/s950, Minimoog, Pro One and a Kawai K4...
Everything was sampled into the AKAI S1000 including the Mini and Pro One for all the sequences and bass lines, but what gives that record its sound is the mix stage. It was our first big room mix on a SSL G+ and we printed all the Akai drums and bass onto 2" tape. We had the Studer 2" machine synced with the Atari (C-Lab software) for the drums, basslines and vocals that we'd record while mixing. Every else ran "live" off the Akais synced to tape til we printed the mix to DAT... I know the Akais and K4 made it onto the tour as well...

Hi Rhys,
I've heard you guys talk a lot about sampling the bass into the Akais but I was wondering:were you sampling "preset"-sounding notes off the synth so you can program & layer sounds for the bassline or the bassline itself?
