With their new ‘Heuristic Programs For Cognitive Centering’ release forthcoming on Our Starry Universe, we wanted to dive further in with the veteran NYC duo, A Separate Reality and get a sneak peak into their studio set-up to talk about the top 5 pieces of gear essential to their productions!
All audio not generated with samples or virtual synths – so, all the guitars, percussion and synths – went through a very warm Tube Tech Tube Mic Pre, a UA LA-2A for light compression and these beautiful NeoTek channel strips. A very clean but musical EQ which we love for it’s rawness.
We used every single synth imaginable on this record, I would have to say the main workhorse of the record was my trusty Korg Poly6. Warm basses, apps and appegios galore. I traded my congas for this unit back in the 90s so we had to borrow studio mate Darshan Jesrani’s Congas and Bongos for the record.
Turn it up & enjoy!
