Synth Setup Tips Ft. BURG – Audio, MIDI, Sequencing, Recording and more

The minute you start making music with more than one hardware instrument, set up questions start to come up. Just like there’s no best synth, I don’t think there’s a perfect setup or hardware workflow for everyone.

In this video, and if there’s interest, in future videos in this series, I bring in a producer and performer whose work I appreciate and I think we can learn from, and I ask them questions about how they make music – everything from audio and MIDI routing to sequencing, recording and mixing.

I’ve been following Jouni Ollila AKA BURG for a while, not only for the quality of his music, but also for how effortlessly he commands, syncs and glides above a massive setup of electronic instruments. Now, you obviously don’t need to have a large hardware set up to make music, but hopefully there are elements of his setup and workflow that you can find applicable in your music:
