I can't even emulate that stuff, I'll just have to go do something else and leave it to Beauty Pill. Nothing I ever do will mean that much artistically (for THAT at least, there'll be no argument ;) )
you make plugins that lots of people love, chad doesn't know how to do that.
i can't emulate his stuff either, at all, but i can listen to it and be inspired to work on my own stuff, which is what matters.
sort of related.....the BP record sounds very 'modern', even 'futuristic'....awhile back we were at an art exhibit, there was one interactive piece that was a big sphere made with thin aluminum pipes. you laid on a bed in the middle of the sphere. there were a bunch of little speakers mounted all over the sphere, and a couple subs under the bed. as you laid there, various tones played over the speakers. they might've panned slowly around the speakers too, i forget. but anyway it was really really cool!
i asked the artist about it and he said it was all done in MAX/MSP. he showed me his screen and was explaining how it worked....i got the basic gist but most of it went way over my head.
i went home thinking "man, i just record guitar, bass and drums in real time....i am so OLD FASHIONED."
