Rotations: Studio Log
Robbie Bronnimann is a UK based producer, remixer and performer who’s trademark euphoric trance sound first appeared  in the 90’s as dba,  who released 3 of their own albums  as well as numerous critically acclaimed singles and remixes under that moniker & the subsequent tektonik^ project with Andy Ross. Since then he’s worked as a producer and writer for The Sugababes, Japanese signing Elixia  and Howard Jones -  with whom he regularly performs with an innovative laptop and Ableton Live setup. More recently, he’s been working on  film scores as composer, collaborating with Andy Hunter on US releases Expelled and No Saints For Sinners.

Right now he’s working on an album for a major label, who have given him the enviable task of “making the record he wants to”. This will allow him to explore some more unusual musical avenues and production techniques, including live vocal processing and more real-time performance.

We have been invited to observe this process - both the highs and the lows,  as he works in  his well-equipped UK studio.

Based around Logic Pro on an 8-core Mac, Robbie uses an wide range of plugs and virtual instruments, although he also intends use this opportunity to free himself, to break of the box to utilize his healthy collection of real synthesizers.

To start off this journey, we visited his studio and chatted about the upcoming project.

id agree that workspace looks awesome.. im very keen on the same brands myself: DSI, focusrite, apogee

i owned the mono-evolver keyboard for about a year and really loved it - had to sell to cover payment on a new car, and ive always regretted it

while i had it, i made a track using only the evolver keyboard - just overdubbing each part.. making drum sounds on it and throwing them in a sampler... no other hardware or software used

it came out pretty good, gives you an idea of how much stuff it can do - its an amazing synth

but yeh im very interested in seeing more of this album taking shape, looks fun
