Joakim wasn't able to acquire this enormous collection of kit overnight, it took time. “It was really gradual. Once I got a few really nice bits of gear, I realised there was no going back," he explains.
"First it was with synths then it was with drum machines. When you start using a drum machine and you compare the groove and feeling they have compared to using the computer you just can’t go back.
"Then I got the API EQ and began to realise what a real EQ is and how you can do so much with it and it will always sound good. I’m a nerd, so I just love this stuff, but software not so much. I like software and plug-ins where they do something completely different to what you can achieve in hardware. Software emulation for me is just a dumbed down version of the real thing, but I like Reaktor and software that enables you to mix the best of both worlds."
