So far we’ve talked about digital audio workstations, basic components of a home studio, MIDI controllers, and even mobile apps and how they can fit into your creative process for making music. With Ultra Music Festival wrapping up this month, I figured it would be appropriate to talk about how some of the most technology-heavy music producers in the world utilize these technologies to create their sounds during a live performance.

Here are a few names you might recognize and which devices they use during their live shows:

Skrillex

Electro House, Dubstep

Skrillex, a former post-hardcore singer/songwriter, began creating digital productions and has been a major contributor to bringing electronic music back into the mainstream. Having been nominated for a total of eight Grammy awards and leaving with six, Skrillex is showing no visible signs of slowing down. Here’s what his live rig looks like:

Ookay – Star Wars

artworks-000043452402-royyy8-large

Lately I have been questioning whether or not I am dreaming with all of these INSANE Ookay remixes and originals dropping left and right.  The young member of Buygore management has been absolutely blowing up and it shows in each and every production.  This San Diego native has been showcasing huge events like SXSW and will soon be constantly touring, traveling to see each and every member and admirer of the trap movement in their city! From personal experience, it is a show you DO NOT want to miss.  Be sure to check out his tour dates on his Facebook and follow him on Soundcloud for all the freshest trap jams out today!  As always we give mad props to this artist for dropping all his songs as his does and giving his listeners free downloads!

Daft Punk Sony Album Official Release Confirmed

Fans hungry for any piece of intel regarding the upcoming fifth record by Daft Punk may now have a bit more to chew on.

This morning, the Daft Punk fan site The Daft Clubposted a screenshot taken from PPL, a British company that licenses recorded music and relegates royalties. The post confirms that Sony Music (whose subsidiary company Columbia Records will be handling the French duo’s upcoming album) has registered 13 Daft Punk songs with the organization.

Though the tracks remain untitled, they range in length from 3:48 to 9:04.

Check out the full list of tracks below.
