Happy birthday to Alex

Andreas Tilliander
who are you?

i'm a swedish producer who is recording everything from club music to abstract minimal stuff. some of my aliases include mokira, lowfour and rechord, but i guess most people know me as andreas tilliander. i've put out some records on mille plateaux, raster noton, and so on.

on what records/releases have you used smartelectronix software?

my releases are full of smartelectronix and i also used it quite alot on 'elit', my latest album on mille plateaux. my two upcoming mokira releases feature your effects as well. for some reason, i prefer using your effects on my more "experimental" material.

in what ways do you use our plugins?

on the track that i'm working with this minute, i'm using the buffer override on some vocals. i often use the buffer override on wet reverb signals. since i'm a terrible guitar player, but still very fascinated by the guitar sound, i recorded some chords that i was playing and then i used the buffer override to fuck it up a bit. that way, i was able to hide my bad talent but still come up with something that sounded really interesting.

what do you think about smartelectronix software/mentality?

the main thing that i like about you is that you are looking forward instead of trying to imitate the sound of old hardware.

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

what about a granular vocoder? i have no idea how lb (better known as atom heart) did the vocals for his 'pop artificielle' album, but i'd like to do something close to what he did. i've tried to make something like that in reaktor, but i'm too dumb. something else that i'd like to have is a multiband filter delay where you could kill desired frequencies but also choose a different type of delay/reverb for each band.

do you know any other artists that use our software?

matt jackson / conception recordings (who told me about you), folie / mitek records, lars blek / garmonbozia and johan skugge / source records.
