Patrik Schwitter recommends



"I took a telecaster, dialed in "evolution" and immediately guitar heaven gave my a warm welcome. what an incredible detailed sound texture and the dynamic response will knock you off, too. then i took my vintage explorer, loaded "monstrosity" and my wig was melt down caused by the "no mercy" switch! obviously i was looking for some recovery then and purple "Meldano" did this in a second... any questions?"


"Finally, there’s a brilliant-sounding Steinway sample library where I can dial in a pair of my favourite contemporary tube mics. Besides this, the opportunity to modulate, exaggerate and dehydrate this grand piano is just awesome and very inspiring. what a cool addition to the huge field of ITB-Steinway’s."
