— Although not a specific piece of equipment, having time was the main factor and key in this whole process. Time to experiment, time to create, time to adapt, and not constrained by time in working to pressurized demands. I needed to fall in love with making music again. Everything else was supplementary and complementary. I used Ableton as the main DAW with propellerhead Reason and primarily plugins such as U-he Diva, Synapse Audio Dune 2 & 3. Additionally I have access to a number of studios with numerous synths, drum machines and outboard gear but all ideas start by working 'within the box'.
