1. Macbook Pro
Without this there’s no record! Everything was recorded, arranged, mixed and processed through this thing. Purchased in 2014 and still going strong!

2. Shure SM7B
What better selling point is there than it being the mic that “was used to record Thriller”. We recorded about 80% of No Shade on it…
3. Arturia DrumBrute
This was more of an inspirational piece than anything. It made it on the record in a few instances, but more often it was used to get the energy going when we first started a session. Sam would start creating a beat and Dave would begin freestyling and it got us in the mood to create. It’s so fun and intuitive to program and the built-in FM synth module is really fun for jamming.
4. Soundtoys EchoBoy Plug-in
This is our favourite delay plug-in — in general all of the Soundtoys plug-ins are amazingly creative tools but this one takes the cake. It was used for almost all the delays on the album, but it’s a real secret weapon as a tone tool, too!
5. Yamaha Reface DX
This thing is small but mighty and has some really special patches on it. Absolutely my favourite punchy bass sound, plus a lot of great smooth sounds for leads and chords. The original Yamaha DX keyboards were used extensively in early house music productions, so this thing is really great as a time capsule to capture that vibe and emotion.
