“SUBPAC is a game changer! Trust me when I tell you, there is no better way to experience music outside of the studio! For engineers, it is an excellent judge of balance for mixing purposes.”
Q&A with Cruz about the SUBPAC:
What role does “feeling” (or feeling the bass?) play in the music you make and love?
The “feeling” is everything. The experience of hearing music in a proper studio or a live show is addictive. Until SUBPAC I was never able to match that experience outside of a studio or a venue.
Has the SUBPAC changed the way you create, produce or mix music?
SUBPAC has helped me a great deal with balancing out my mixes. It is surprisingly true for in terms of gauging proper leveling.
How could “physical audio” change our relationship to sound and music in the future?
The fact that we now have ways of experiencing music and film in this way makes it more exciting and fulfilling. I love the idea that even if you are unable to hear the music, you can still feel it. Most of my favorite records are instantly recognizable by the bass line alone.
