Which gear, production wise, do you tend to use?
"I use Logic Pro 8 along with Contact, which is a plug-in you can use on Logic or Pro-Tools. I use Vienna Instruments a lot mostly for percussion and string ensembles. I use the Artera plug-ins, the Moog and patch-based synth and the Oscar, I use those synthesiser sounds.
"Once I’m happy with what I have I’ll make .WAV files of every instrument and put it into Pro-Tools and mix it in there. On Pro-Tools when doing the Stone Sour demos I used WAV SSL bundle, which is great. It’s like having a virtual SSL board. Sure it’s not going to sound as big, but it gives you a similar characteristic and sound to an SSL."
