NO BRAKES ON THE CORNISH EXPRESS
He probably forgot to set it to downloadable - happened on some earlier tracks too. Soundcloud decided that it was a good idea to hide away the downloadable checkbox in a different tab than the one the pops up for general info editing.
He uses DAWs for a lot of sequencing I think, for obvious reasons, but the synths and effects themselves are outboard.
He also did some tracks on Syro that were sequenced entirely with hardware like CIRCLONT6A.
Ah right, yeah you can hear the difference on Windowlicker.
But for example I heard SAW1 was recorded straight to a tape machine, how is he making that stuff all live??
In case it isn't clear I know nothing about electronic music
They both have their merits. Certain types of music lend themselves to software more than hardware though, and vice versa.
Admittedly these days you're less likely to hear really shit amateur stuff made on hardware since it's so expensive by comparison. Not every Bandcamp kiddie has access to a wealth of gear.
I can't explain it, it sounds less overproduced most of the time. For me there's a point at which things just sound too polished, but of course that might be a positive for some people
