In The Stu­dio With… Markus Schulz

Future Music - - CLASSIC ALBUM | FILTER -

“At the time I was re­ly­ing heav­ily on my Virus syn­the­sizer. It was my MIDI con­troller as well. I spent so many years on that thing that I could just reach for knobs with­out even think­ing, you know?

“The lower C key was miss­ing, so none of the tracks on this al­bum are in that key [ laughs]. You never re­ally thought about what keys you were work­ing in – you just went with what felt right.

“Now ev­ery­body knows that the key of G, up to the key of A, is re­ally rich in bass, so Dance mu­sic is al­ways in that range.

“I also had my Nord Lead and a Wal­dorf Wave. Then, on a cou­ple of tracks, I had a Roland JD-800. I can’t be­lieve I sold that. It was like los­ing a piece of my soul [ laughs].

“I didn’t use a lot of sam­ples – I used the orig­i­nal 909. I had a cou­ple of Juno-106s that I used on the al­bum, as well. I had a lot of good ma­chines that had a lot of soul.”
