Happy birthday to Alex

Mat Jarvis (Gas / High Skies)
who are you?

I've been making/writing music since I was about 7... I make laid back, organic, melodic electronics. I started out on Emit/Time as Gas, but now also record under the name High Skies, and am producing and co-writing with others too. It's due for a major overhaul soon, but you can find some basics here....

on what records/releases have you used smartelectronix software?

Loads. The next few due for release are the 'High Skies - Sumatra EP', and a High Skies remix of 'Charles Webster - Gift Of Freedom' for a remix album on Peacefrog. Lots of Smart Electronix plugs on that, most obviously on the vocals.

in what ways do you use our plugins?

Hmmmm, have you got a spare couple of days :-)? Mainly as inserts tho; but with e.g. Crazy Ivan I will just keep bouncing all the variations it spits out - you're always going to find something useful.

what do you think about smartelectronix software/mentality?

Amazing! I would like to think that they have increased the quality and diversity of music being released over the past few years. They were also there at the start of the plugin scene. You can tell they're all into music and not just churning out plugins like some faceless bigger companies. Plus they're all really nice, genuine guys!

what kind of things would you like to see in the future from smartelectronix?

Just more plugins from mentally unstable guys! Anti-Grav plugin?

do you know any other artists that use our software?

Doesn't everyone? I guess anyone who isn't working with Celine Dion! Anyone that isn't using them, doesn't know about them! Thanks Guys, much appreciated!! - Mat xxx
