We added a Midi Fighter 3D to have some fun with Amp Freqq’s sample player, but then we basically forgot about it. We also moved the Twister up to the dashboard. That way we have Amp Freqq’s siren on the right side and Benidub’s siren on the left side, so anyone can reach at least one of them at any moment. Yes kids, dubbing is a must but ergonomy is a must also. Anyways, on the next episode we will go deeper into Amp Freqq’s siren, controlling it’s 8 knobs and trigger with the Midi Fighter Twister.

Thank you for joining us today. Last week we featured your latest work, Tigre Dub. We did it not only because you used Amp FreQQ to finalize the versions, but because we love the production itself. It has its own personality. Could you tell us about your approach towards music production?

First and foremost, I want to say thank you for having me here. It’s a pleasure to have your support for this release, and I really appreciate it.

Regarding my approach… Nothing special, really. I have no formal training on music production or theory, although I’ve been looking forward to studying for years, and I hope the time comes soon.

I just get in front of my computer, launch Ableton, and let myself flow with it. I investigate sounds, tweak them, play them, transforming them if I feel like it. I go over and over until I get the right note. When I’m mixing I can easily spend weeks until I’m satisfied with the results.

I used to feel overwhelmed trying to go faster, but I realized this is the way I really enjoy doing it. It requires patience. You really need to be sure before releasing your work.

The truth is, both for Tigre Dub and my previous production, Búho, I had a clearer idea of what I wanted. Basically that’s it: sitting down, usually at night, light one up and let my imagination flow.

Tigre Dub is like a journey. The first thought that came to my mind when I listened to it for the first time was the same thing I feel when listening to any Alpha & Omega production: this is not a riddim, this is a tune. It feels like it’s telling us a story from the beginning to the end, or a chapter of a bigger story. Was that your intention or did the tiger find its own shape?

Hmm… a mixture of both. Everybody will interpret music their own way, but I knew I wanted everybody listening to go through similar moods. Going from 0 to 100 and back. I love the “loopines” of Dub music and getting the listener to that ecstatic state using delays and reverbs. Like I said before, I try to say more things through those changes, from 0 to 100. I hope I achieved that.

The structure and arrangement on Tigre Dub is absolutely brilliant. It’s a tune with many charismatic characters: virtually every part of it could be the main character. But they never compete with each other. They pass the baton to each other in a very dynamic fashion, while keeping it unpredictable. How do you see that aspect of the process?

It may be because I’m not a detail oriented producer, perhaps because I don’t have formal training (or whatever you want to call it). I avoid using 20 tracks on my productions. I rather work with 10 main characters, as you called them, and play with them. I need every part of the song to have it’s own moment, it’s moment of glory, as to speak. I think that’s why I try to find balance between abrupt and harmonious changes.

You decided to use Amp FreQQ to finalize cuts 2 and 3. Why?

Well, first and foremost, since the moment I got the software and the controller arrived home, I tried it and fell in love with it. Thank you for releasing something like this to the public! It’s really versatile to play music. I was going deep into it on my own.

I really like the organic sound of the echo and reverb, not to mention the high pass and low pass filter, the sirens and, of course, the killers. So I saw it clearly: Why not to use it for dubbing my own productions. So I wanted that sound for Tigre.

For the second cut I used a version without any FX on it, and mostly used Amp FreQQ for every reverb, echo, frequency cut and so on.I liked the idea of letting the listeners imagine themselves in front of the sound system… Then I play the first cut and start playing with it. That’s what this version of Tigre is. I was so pleased with the results that I decided to share it.

The third cut was mixed with multitrack (meaning DAW) but I still put it through Amp FreQQ for the final touch I wanted to achieve with this little toy. I think I have to get more acquainted with it, but it is already demonstrating a stunning versatility, both for playing tunes and integrating it into my productions.

Nuff respect to everyone involved in the creation of it.

Both Tigre Dub and your previous work, Búho Dub, share a certain sound identity. They seem to be part of the same mythology. When will we be able to listen to the next chapter?

I can say I have some ideas already, but I haven’t begun working on it yet. I’m sure there will be at least 3 more releases from this saga. Like I said, I want to take my time. Between Búho and Tigre, 5 or 6 months went by… I don’t want it to take so long for the next one, but I want to get it right.

Thank you so much. Any upcoming project that you’d like to tell us about?

I have some things in the works. I would like to do something involving vocals, but we’ll see! I don’t want to get my hopes up by anticipating anything. Once more, thank you so much to the Amp FreQQ family for supporting me and for the love you are putting into your work. Respects!

Gracias por dedicarnos unos minutos. La semana pasada reseñamos tu última producción (Tigre Dub), no sólo porque usaste Amp FreQQ para finalizar las versiones, sino porque nos encanta el carácter de toda la producción. ¿Podrías contarnos más sobre tu forma de producir? ¿Usas alguna DAW como núcleo de tu estudio?

Hola. Lo primero, muchas gracias por hacer un hueco en vuestro espacio para este trabajo, es un placer contar con vuestro apoyo, eternamente agradecido.

Bueno, en cuanto a mi forma de trabajar… pues nada especial la verdad, no tengo ningún tipo de estudios por el momento ni de producción, solfeo ni nada por el estilo, aunque tengo muchas ganas de ponerme a estudiar desde hace años y espero que llegue pronto el momento. Simplemente me pongo delante de mi ordenador de sobremesa, abro el Ableton y dejo llevarme. Investigo sonidos, los toco, los transformo si me surge, juego con ellos, le doy mil vueltas a las notas… y así una y otra vez hasta que doy en la tecla, y eso solo a la hora de la producció  por que a la hora del mix, eq, etc. me puedo pegar tranquilamente dos, tres, cuatro semanas hasta que lo veo claro. Antes me aturullaba porque quería hacerlo todo más rápido, pero me he dado cuenta que es como me gusta trabajar realmente. Mucha paciencia y masticar bien el tema antes de soltarlo.

Es verdad que tanto en Tigre Dub como en el anterior, el Búho, fui con mas pretensión de lo normal a la hora de sentarme con las cosas claras de como quería que quedara el resultado. Pero el resumen es ese, sentarme, normalmente por la noche, encenderme un cigarro y a imaginar.

En cuanto al DAW, estuve muchos años con Reason de Propellerhead, pero me quedé en el 5. El sonido ya notaba que se quedaba corto y he de decir que estoy viendo a gente con las últimas versiones y suenan muy muy bien, pero para mí el descubrimiento fue, como he dicho antes, Ableton Live, mucho level. Gracias a mí hermano Tibicenas por insistirme mil y una vez en que los cambios son para bien a parte de ser un maestro.

Tigre Dub es todo un viaje. La primera idea cuando lo escuché por primera vez fue la misma que me viene a la cabeza escuchando producciones de Alpha & Omega: esto no es un riddim, es un tema. Parece que te cuenta una historia de principio a fin, o un capítulo de una historia más grande. ¿Tenías esa intención o el tigre tomó su propia forma?

Mmm… una mezcla de las dos cosas. Tenía claro que, más que contar una historia (ya que cada uno la va a percibir de una manera distinta) todos los que lo escuchemos pasemos más o menos por los mismos estados de ánimo. El pasar de cero a cien, y al contrario.

Me encanta el loop del dub y me gusta que haga despertar al oyente de ese “éxtasis” a través de los delays y reverbs, pero yo además de eso pretendo decirles más cosas a través de esos cambios, como decía del 100 al cero, y espero haberlo conseguido.

La forma en la que has estructurado y arreglado Tigre Dub es absolutamente brillante. Es un tema con muchos personajes carismáticos: prácticamente todos los elementos que lo componen podrían ser el protagonista principal. Pero en ningún momento compiten entre ellos. Se pasan el testigo de una forma absolutamente dinámica y a la vez nada predecible. ¿Cómo sueles enfocar este aspecto de una producción?

Pues por que a lo mejor, creo que por mi falta de estudios musicales, o como queramos llamarlo, no soy un “productor de pequeños detalles”, de meter 20 pistas para producir un tema, me quedo en diez, como dices protagonistas y con ellos juego. Necesito que todo lo que hay en el track tenga su propio momento, su minuto de gloria digamos. Entonces, creo que por eso es por lo que intento que esos cambios, a la vez de bruscos sean lo más armoniosos posibles, pero eso si, que llamen la atención.  

Decidiste usar Amp FreQQ para los cortes 2 y 3. ¿Por qué?

Pues lo primero, por que desde que me llegó el aparato y el software a casa y lo probé, estoy enamorado de él. ¡Gracias por sacar algo así! Da muchísimo juego para seleccionar música. Le estuve dando tralla en silencio.

Me gusta mucho lo orgánico que suenan los delays y reverbs, por no hablar del filtro de pase alto y pase bajo que tiene, las sirenas, los killer por su puesto, y ahí me vino la lucidez ¿porqué no usarlo también para “dubear” mis producciones?, entonces quise ese sonido para el Tigre.

El corte 2, es el más íntegro con el AmpFreQQ, además me hacía mucha gracia la idea de que el oyente se imaginara que viene al sound system, pongo el primer tema del disco y empiezo a jugar con él. Eso es esta versión del Tigre y la verdad que el resultado me gustó tanto que lo quise compartir.

El 3, está realizado con multipistas, pero aún así lo volví a pasar por el AmpFreQQ para ultimar algunos detalles que quería darle con el sonido de este juguetito. Creo que le tengo que coger aún más tacto, pero la versatilidad que me va mostrando tanto para seleccionar, como para integrarlo en mis producciones es brutal.

Mucho respeto a todos los que ideasteis este aparato.

Tanto Tigre Dub como tu trabajo anterior, Búho Dub, comparten una cierta identidad sonora. Parecen formar parte de una misma mitología. ¿Cuándo podremos escuchar el siguiente capítulo?

Puedo decir que “tengo” ya las ideas, pero todas por empezar.

Tengo claro que saldrán como mínimo tres trabajos más para esta saga. Cómo decía, las quiero hacer con mucha calma. Entre el Búho y el Tigre han pasado cinco o seis meses… para el próximo no me quiero demorar tanto, pero sí hacerlo con buena letra.

Muchas gracias. ¿Algún proyecto futuro que quieras comentar?

Tengo varias cosas en el tintero. Me gustaría hacer algo con voces, pero bueno, ¡todo se verá!  No quiero adelantar nada, ni hacerme ilusiones a mí mismo jajajaja.

Y sólo decir de nuevo, mil gracias AmpFreQQ family por el support recibido y por el amor que estáis poniendo en vuestro trabajo. Respects!

Nuff respect to everyone involved in the creation of it.
