One Question Interviews: Lazerbeak

Lazerbeak (Shredders / Doomtree)

SPB: To you, what is the most important element in your setup to get the best live sound?

Lazerbeak: By far it's the MPC Rennaissance. I grew up making beats on the MPC 2000XL and it's really all I know as far as production is concerned. When AKAI released the Renaissance it was a game changer for me because it was the first time I was able to work with plug-ins and MIDI on my laptop and still utilize all the things I've come to love about the MPC. My setup is literally a laptop, the Renaissance, and a pair of headphones -- whether it's performing live or making a new track in the studio -- and it all fits in my backpack.
