Buying Choices

Rupert Lally and Espen J. Jörgensen, working under the name No Studio, have been collaborating for a number of years, their work together is an interesting one, being entirely remote - they have very rarely (if ever!) actually been in the same room together.

Even so, with Espen's background of film making and electronic music, Rupert's forte being in sound design, their collaboration has been fruitful with 11 releases to date.

As with much of their releases, Øde has an experimental, yet melodic quality to it, with slight hints of Ulrich Schnauss.

Lally is pretty detailed on what gear he used:

Most of the melodic parts that I added were done using my small Modular system. I mostly used either Mutable Instruments Braids or the Leaf Audio NTBA as the main sound source, with Mutable Instruments Ripples Filter and Mutable Clouds for some suitable processing (generally using the Looping Delay mode). Ripples and Clouds were also used to process audio tracks from the laptop, such as the Drums on "End Of Something" or my Nord Electro on "Lullaby For The Red Queen". Mutable Peaks was also used to create some of the more electronic drum sounds. I also used my Roland AIRA System 1 with the Pro Mars and SH2 Plugouts for a the basslines on a couple of the tracks. I also used Solokinetic's Ostinato Strings for "Eufori Kan Bringe Dem Til Himmelen" and Sound Dust's Plastic Ghost Piano, G-Media's M-Tron Plus  and Sonic Couture's Etsy Reed Organ on a couple of tracks. There's also my cheap Gretsch Jim Dandy Acoustic on "Slowly Losing Something Beautiful".

As we were going for a slightly vintage feel for the sound of this album, I mostly stuck to emulations of Springs, plates or rooms (using Native Instruments Reflektor) for any reverb effects. Sonic Charge's Permut8, SoundToys Tremulator and Native Instruments Traktor's 12 when more extreme processing was needed. I used Native Instruments Transient Master, D16 Frontier and Izotope Vinyl on the Master Channel for each of the tracks. The album was mixed and recorded on a pair of Genelec 8010As
