Ravel Grand Piano
Reid sets the tone with a beautiful melody, adding unique movement with Ravel’s signature reverse effect.
The go-to synth for funky bass lines. Reid loads up the “Classic Funk” preset, tweaking the filter cutoff frequency to dial in punch and warmth.
API Vision Channel Strip
Using the 550L EQ, Reid boosts all four bands (LF, LMF, HMF, HF) to inject color and energy to the bass line.
Opal Morphing Synthesizer
Reid uses simple sawtooth settings to create synth stabs then adds a touch of reverb with Opal’s built-in effects.
Studer A800 Tape Machine
The analog glue that brings it all together. Reid slaps the Studer A800 on his master track to inject thickness and warmth that only tape saturation can provide.
