"Using the SUBPAC has has changed the way that I create and mix the sounds that occupy the sub areas of my music. I can now "feel" the pressure that the bass is giving which helps me balance bass line notes and kick drums with more confidence."
Q&A with TEMPLE STEP about the SUBPAC:
What role does “feeling” play in the music you make and love?
“Feeling” the bass allows for balancing pressure and control of their powerful frequencies that are hard to mix with out being able to to “feel” them.
Has the SUBPAC changed the way you create, produce or mix music?
SUBPAC has changed the way I create and mix bass and kicks. Now I can pay alot more attention to envelope, phase, volume and eq more than before I had it.
What excited you about the Feel SUBPAC project?
Im exited about the ways that SUBPACs could be used in conjunction with Sound Healing and Vibrational Therapy to heal traumas and release stagnate energy.
ABOUT TEMPLE STEP:
Temple Step Project’s intention is to bring the vibration of sacred ceremony to the dance floor via sacred bass music. Dubstep and Glitch Hop meets Middle Eastern and Shamanic, Spiritual Music. Stomping beats and whomping bass meet acoustic instrumental melodies, chants and overtones. Progressive synthesizers merge seamlessly with flutes, violins and oud. The Temple Step Project brings a unique blend of future tech music with an uplifting and healing vibration, a sense of the sacred and a depth like nothing before it.
