I love dudes sound , I mean that clear that clear analogue synth sound and bass sound he has , thats that platinum shit . I love it . Im starting to get into synths heavy . He uses that virus and shit like that . Novation makes a good board for you tweakers , its a Novation A-Station ! but i traded mine in for a Novation X station with keys and usb plus more features , the Novation A- Station is a rack module (you can find on ebay for around 200.00 ) and to me they sounded about the same great quality but A-Station had more distinct sounds to tweak . Yeah they both old but still sound good. The supernova is hot too ! havoc uses one , don’t believe me ? go look it up. Leslie don’t need to sample when you can play like that . Scott Storch and all them keyboardists type producers . In today’s time you either gotta be a good sampler or good keyboardist or both i am neither but i enjoyed the video .Point is anybody looking for a few good synths to get that sound you don’t hafto spend 3999.00 for a Virus . I also have a yamaha AN 200 thats a dirty little synth too !! for real .The korg triton days are over these kids are taking acid and meth now they wanna party for days ILMAO !! Tecno and hip hop is in now . Hate it or love it .

tony traxx October 14, 2010 at 10:10 am

are we judging music or personal appearance now wtf ?? i guess they gotta find something to hate when your music is that good

juiceboxjackson October 14, 2010 at 10:10 pm

I don’t have to defend my comment…I paid for both of his iTunes singles before his first album, bought both of his albums in store and they both get regular play…just want him to take the cotdamn shades off and act like a regular damn person!! 😀
