“Since I’ve been using the SUBPAC, I can’t make music without it! I definitely feel more in control of my tracks.”
Q&A with Tantrum Desire about the SUBPAC:
What role does “feeling” play in the music you make and love?
Being able to feel the low end of your track is both incredible and enjoyable. It really does enhance the experience when I’m working on music. Using the SUBPAC has really improved the way I mix down my tracks, allowing me to feel whats actually going on in the subsonic area and how punchy the transients are outputting. It’s amazing.
Has the SUBPAC changed the way you create, produce or mix music?
Since I’ve been using the SUBPAC, I now can’t make music without it. I definitely feel more in control of my tracks, where as I’m able to judge on if the sub bass is too weak or overdriven and monitor where the low frequencies are clashing, in reference to the kick and sub bass. My music is very much bass related which makes the SUBPAC the perfect tool. Read More...
How could “physical audio” change our relationship to sound and music in the future?
Travelling while listening to music with that club sensation is life changing, as well as using it in the studio. When I’m producing music, the SUBPAC must be on where I’m quite adapted to it now. I think physical audio will bring people together not only for listening to music, but for also watching movies and playing video games, it’s a whole new level. If you’re in your home, you can listen or create music at night without losing any enjoyment and disturbing anyone, which is a great advantage. This will certainly increase the love for creating and listening to music now more than ever.
What excited you about the FEEL.SUBPAC project?
The first time I tried the SUBPAC, when that bass feeling kicked in, I was blown away, I thought straight away that this is next level. It’s now great to be affiliated with the SUBPAC team and I’m excited to add some elements to the FeelBass project.
