Re: Interview with Exige

Hey Adam, thanks for accepting and I have to say you're one of my favourite players out there. The complexity and the sound of our mashups is just fantastic.

So first off, how did you discover the launchpad? Did you want to just mess around with it or was there a bigger meaning behind it?

Did you learn music anywhere or are you self-educated? I see you play the piano very well.

What is your process on making mashups? Like how are you gathering your songs, how do you set everything up, do you use either session or arrangement mode more than the other etc?

Will there be any collaborative work in the near future with other button pushers?

I really liked the "Back And Forth" remix you did and the setup you used. Will you be doing live performances in the future like you did in the video?

Does the "◈" symbol have any kind of a meaning to it?

What are your relations with other buttons pushers?

What is in your studio setup? Do you want to share a picture of your workstation perhaps?

Did you make the M4L device that you use to make lightshows yourself or did you get help?

Who is your favourite artist?

Thanks again for doing this and keep on pumping out your awesome vids wink

Cheers!

Re: Interview with Exige

Thank you for this opportunity and I really love your work especially the mashup for Proximity !   

Firstly, I would love to hear from you about tips & tricks or advices on sampling for beginner to intermediate Launchpad user as this is a common obstacle for users of these levels.

Secondly, when creating a mashup that consist of multiple sub genres, how would you find the balance point to not make the overall mashup too overpowered and complicated?

Lastly, I'd like to ask if is Ableton Live 9 Lite sufficient enough to produce/arrange a decent mashup without purchasing any sort of plug-ins?

Thanks again for your time and it would help me immensely as I'm eager to learn from a master like you! Keep up the good work as well !

From Malaysia with love. <3

Hey Adam love your vids, you are my favourite button pusher wink

1. Have you got any advice for making your fingers more fluent because i am learning your Find You piano cover and i am having trouble with the tricky second run of the song and the solo right hand midway, the rest i got down pat, so i was wondering if you had any exercisers that you use especially for your runs smile

2. What do you think about when making a mashup (you've probably already been asked this but imma ask you anyway)

3. why don't you have many subscribers? you should at least be 500k+

4. finally, any collabs coming soon?

5. No not finally I just got back (literally found out while typing this big_smile) the results for my 8th grade piano exam i had last Thursday where i played your Find You cover (my edit to simplify the first drop and right hand solo) and i am the first person in 30 or so years to get 100%

Thank you so much for being awesome Exige p.k.a Adam Rybovič.

How many recording attempts does it take you until you get one your happy with? For me it could take 7-10 times before I finally record something I'm okay with uploading, it seems like you do it perfect in one shot! Any pre-recording ritual? Do some finger yoga? Feed your goat? What do you do before you start recording a video or start a new track?

Hey guys,

Excited to be here. Thanks for taking the time to ask your questions, and thank you for the invite HNTR.

Hope you all get something out of this interview, it’s been fun!



//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

ULT1MOD

ULT1MOD
So first off, how did you discover the launchpad? Did you want to just mess around with it or was there a bigger meaning behind it?

I had seen both Pop Culture and Weapon, but had never considered doing anything myself. A good friend of mine owned a Launchpad that he didn’t use and suggested I make a video – so I did! Then the team at Novation hooked me up with my own gear.


ULT1MOD
Did you learn music anywhere or are you self-educated? I see you play the piano very well.

I had lessons every week from around age 6 to until a few months ago. I had a single studies scholarship from university for a couple of years when I was younger and then went onto a music-specialising high school – basically training to be a concert pianist, which is still a goal but not a career-focus anymore.


ULT1MOD
What is your process on making mashups? Like how are you gathering your songs, how do you set everything up, do you use either session or arrangement mode more than the other etc?

Just treating it similarly to an original or remix but with a more complex form, then cutting it up and exporting clips to be performable. Session mode only when I use it to perform, otherwise I’m all arrangement.


ULT1MOD
Will there be any collaborative work in the near future with other button pushers?

Nothing planned.


ULT1MOD
I really liked the "Back And Forth" remix you did and the setup you used. Will you be doing live performances in the future like you did in the video?

Thank you! Probably not, the reception of that video was underwhelming, unfortunately. However, live shows will be much, much crazier.


ULT1MOD
Does the "◈" symbol have any kind of a meaning to it?

Yes! Not only was it Unicode, but it’s a modern-ish take on Slovak folk patterns (I guess that’ll make more sense over the next two decades). e.g. 1, 2, 3. Check out some of the visual patterns in the 2014 mashup, began hinting at it there. In early 2014 a few other artists came out with similar logos, I thought about changing it completely but ultimately felt that would be untrue to what I was about.


ULT1MOD
What are your relations with other buttons pushers?

We’re all friends, I talk with some more than others, but we’ve all got a Facebook chat.


ULT1MOD
What is in your studio setup? Do you want to share a picture of your workstation perhaps?

Literally just a computer + piano + gear Novation has sent. Nothing incredible.


ULT1MOD
Did you make the M4L device that you use to make lightshows yourself or did you get help?

Yeah all myself, it’s basically a custom device for each performance triggering MIDI files. Began working on a custom ‘drum-rack-like’ Launchpad device that was completely flexible, never finished it 100% and don’t plan to anymore, here you go. Use it, deconstruct it, learn from it, do whatever your heart pleases with it (maybe someone can complete it).


ULT1MOD
Who is your favourite artist?

Way too vague, can’t really answer this, don’t think I’ve ever had one single favourite.


ULT1MOD
Thanks again for doing this and keep on pumping out your awesome vids wink
Cheers!

No worries!

Where/How do you get ideas for mashups?

It’s like a puzzle that you have to create before you solve it. A lot of it is similar to writing something original, just messing around with ideas until one sticks.

What are your best tips for creating mashups?

Don’t think about it too much, just try to realise your ideas in sound and filter out the bad ones.

No but it’s in the mail!

Firstly, I would love to hear from you about tips & tricks or advices on sampling for beginner to intermediate Launchpad user as this is a common obstacle for users of these levels.

Learning to produce your own music will make this process 100x easier.


officialkukas
Secondly, when creating a mashup that consist of multiple sub genres, how would you find the balance point to not make the overall mashup too overpowered and complicated?

Try to figure out the overarching form, and then make sure the transitions follow a logical order and work musically. If the concept sounds like too much, the result will sound like too much.


officialkukas
Lastly, I'd like to ask if is Ableton Live 9 Lite sufficient enough to produce/arrange a decent mashup without purchasing any sort of plug-ins?

I’ve been asked this a few times, and honestly looking at the limits, it would be no where near enough for me. Maybe if you’re extremely efficient you can make it work.



//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Beboy

Beboy
Will you ever make downloadable project files?

The difficulty with this is copyright, I’m already taking a risk by having my mashups as free downloads – but I’ve changed enough musically that I feel they’re their own piece. Distributing project files (with original audio files) however is completely different.


Beboy
I'm 10, I know how to play the piano, do you think I could ever be as good as you?

The key to improve your piano skills is to never “know” how to play, but to always be learning.


Beboy
Can we be friends?

Sure.


Beboy
The Launchpad Pro is EXPENSIVE, do you know any way I can get one for cheapo?

I don’t think it works like that. You can always try to win one through a contest.


Beboy
Can you maybe listen to my music? @ soundcloud.com/beatthemusic

You’re 10, so it’s a good age to start working like mad. You’ve got nice concepts, but the execution of them will come with time and practice. Perhaps save up for some studio headphones instead of the LP Pro, the nuances of production and mixing will be much more obvious to you through them, and then your abilities will improve like crazy too.


Beboy
Maybe after the interview, wanna stay on the forum? it would be really cool to hang out with someone as cool as you!

Yeah I’ll drop by every once in a while.

Safety

Safety
Are you planning on buying an Ult1mod?

Not after what he did to me.


Safety
Are you trained classically - piano? If so, for how long and what tips would you give.

First part answered above. Technique is key (I’m still working on specific areas), scales & Hanon are considered boring but are super important.


Safety
Talking about tips - How do you go about producing originals but also remixes and mashups? What's your process, your resources for tutorials, basically whatever comes to your mind about this topic.

It’s become a natural process to be honest. The main thing is being able to get the ideas out of your head and into the DAW/score efficiently.  It’s such a cliché, but it almost doesn’t matter how you produce/compose, as long as you practice for hours and hours a day for a decent amount of years, you’ll be able to do everything you want to do.


Safety
Where are you from?

Australia.


Safety
How old are you?

19.


Safety
Got any pets?

Nope.


Safety
What are your plans for the future?

I’ve got way too many. We’ll see what happens in the future, but even then I’m sure only a fraction will actually end up happening.


Safety
Did you see my pen? I lost it yesterday.

Nevermind, just found my pen.

Had me on the edge of my seat!


Safety
What was your path of education so far?

The standard – not too far off finishing University now.


Safety
Have you met any "famous" Launchpadders / Controllerists? e.g. M4SONIC, Shawn Wasabi, me, etc.

Yeah I’ve caught up with Throttle, M4 and Ravine. When I head over to the States one day I’ll catch up with the rest.


Safety
Obligatory "Collab bro?" - though i have no clue on what^^

Always open to working on cool ideas.


Safety
Anything cool you've found on our forums so far?

I didn’t know ‘Slice2Midi’ was a thing. Explains a lot actually…


Safety
Got any cool announcements for us?

Nothing big I can announce at the moment, but something cool: I learnt how to code for web and made some websites for my projects (still works in progress).
http://v1.exige.net.au/
http://v1sounds.exige.net.au/


Safety
Favorite color?

Blue.


Safety
Favorite song (at the moment or alltime)?

Once again, can’t single anything out, but some all-times:
Chopin’s Op.35 and his Etudes.
Debussy’s Images.
Ravel’s Daphnis and Gaspard de la nuit.
Most Art Tatum, namely Yesterdays and his later performance of Tea for Two.
Skrillex’s SMNS album.
Zedd’s Clarity album.
Never Say Goodbye’s vox and most by Heather Bright are also some of my favourites, cannot stop listening to Throttles new ones either.
And too many more to name throughout all genres that I would rate equally with those above.


Safety
What are your hobbies (apart from music)?

LOVE skiing and just snow in general.


Safety
What do you like to do in your spare time (also apart from music)?

Hopefully get a bit of sleep, hate how non-productive it is.


Safety
Which countries have you been to and what's the "coolest" one?

Too many, hard to single out a country. Zakopane was absolutely magical though.

Ohhh this question is a classical one, then are you planning to go to Ult1mod's Ult1mate Launch Party 2016?

Didn’t get an invite.


Ticki84
How much do you practise a song before doing a performance video on it?

Generally a day or two depending on the length. The ‘Ultimate Mashup’ back in 2013 was a week, but since the intricacy of the performance didn’t really do much for people I just made the newer ones simpler to save me time.


Ticki84
How much try do you give to some of your projects?

I don’t know? What is ‘try’?


Ticki84
Are you quantizing notes of your recorded Ableton MIDI tracks (if you record the MIDI with Ableton of cause) to export the audio on your video?

Yes, most people do (it’s quite obvious when you hear the ones who don’t). Electronic dance music is a music of absolutes. It’s possible to create a ‘quantise’ MIDI chain that functions similar to session mode quantisation – used one in my 2014 mashup – it’s just much easier to quantise those milliseconds in post and it literally just gives the same result. A couple of milliseconds off in a live setting aren’t too big of an issue, but on a video their effect is magnified and can make it sound terrible.


Ticki84
What are your favorite genre/subgenre and musics promoting channel (on Youtube)?

Proximity & MrSuicideSheep I guess, though I don’t really frequent any channels.

How young were you when you got into piano (started lessons even)?

There were always pianos around so I taught myself as a young kid, had a couple of lessons at 4/5 but didn’t really start seriously until 6.


The3RDdimension
How many launchpads do you own?

2 S’s, 2 Controls, a Pro and a Launchkey.


The3RDdimension
How many takes were recorded on your Zedd - Find you video?

Maybe around 10 at different angles? Only had one camera so multiple angles couldn’t be shot at once.

Hey Adam love your vids, you are my favourite button pusher

Thanks, XIRUS.

Have you got any advice for making your fingers more fluent because i am learning your Find You piano cover and i am having trouble with the tricky second run of the song and the solo right hand midway, the rest i got down pat, so i was wondering if you had any exercisers that you use especially for your runs

As annoying as they can be, scales & Hanon are where it’s at. Chopin’s Etudes would also help out with some of the RH technique.


XIRUS
What do you think about when making a mashup (you've probably already been asked this but imma ask you anyway)

Just about getting everything to work as planned.


XIRUS
Why don't you have many subscribers? you should at least be 500k+

My videos aren’t exactly viral material – I’m more concerned with producing quality content than memes or rushed covers of popular songs. That being said, after the video is released it’s all YouTube’s elusive algorithm that does the rest. I haven’t been lucky.


XIRUS
Finally, any collabs coming soon?

Mostly with vocalists, no video collabs planned.


XIRUS
No not finally I just got back (literally found out while typing this) the results for my 8th grade piano exam i had last Thursday where i played your Find You cover (my edit to simplify the first drop and right hand solo) and i am the first person in 30 or so years to get 100%

Congratulations!! Keep on improving your piano skills. Also you should record the piano performance and send it over, very curious to see it.

My music is 99% writing and producing originals/remixes and 1% Launchpad (which itself is mostly production until the final recorded performance) - the Launchpad just attracts more attention.

How many recording attempts does it take you until you get one your happy with? For me it could take 7-10 times before I finally record something I'm okay with uploading, it seems like you do it perfect in one shot!

The very first mashup took like 100 takes, session mode makes things extra difficult. Some can be done in one, like the Gifony video, but mostly they do take around 10, especially with different angles.


ProdiG
Any pre-recording ritual? Do some finger yoga? Feed your goat? What do you do before you start recording a video or start a new track?

Setting up the space to be able to record is quite a good warm up.

Did you see that people remade some of your projects?

I’ve seen a few, but they only cut up the audio. Don’t see the point if you don’t remake the music too.

Why does your remix of Back and Forth sound like Don't you worry Child?

Interesting question, I didn’t make the connection until after release. But essentially, it uses the same rhythmic foundation (which itself is incredibly minimal, used many times long before DYWC). There are certain ‘islands of stability’ in harmony, melody and rhythm; elements we enjoy and tend to gravitate towards as musicians/composers. There’s a whole section of the brain that tries to guess what comes next in music, and rewards us when we’re correct, have a look into it if you’re interested – fascinating stuff.
