Welcome to the second Lights/Out premiere here on Magnetic. For those of you who might have no idea what Lights/Out is, it's all things underground. We keep it fresh, we keep it real. With most premieres, you only get a track, this time, we actually get a chance to see what the duo uses for their production and live performances. This week we have a fresh remix from Samot, one half of the duo NX1, stepping up to remix their track for the third installment of the NX1 Remixed series. It's always interesting to hear an artist remix their own track, and Samot delivers the goods with this borderline EBM and industrial techno track. The off-beat kicks, and distorted soundscapes create a drugging roughness.

As stated, most times we only get one piece of the puzzle. NX1 was kind enough to show us some of the tools behind their music. Synths like the Moog Little Phatty, a Waldorf Pulse, and a Roland SH-32. Check out what they had to say about them in the gallery below. 

Moog little Phatty: No doubt that the bass and roars from Moog are always on another level. We bought this when we just started the NX1 project, so it's another one of those synths with which we’ve made a lot of advances. It’s simple and powerful and although it's monophonic it has been a great tool for us. It provides everything from bass lines to pads or even some percussion. Playing with this one always adds a different quality to our music.

Roland SH-32: This is the synthesizer that has been with us since the beginning. Honestly we’ve been playing around with it since we were 17 or 18 years old, and surely it’s the machine we’ve gotten the most out of. A lot of our tracks have elements from this old Roland which includes original sounds from 808 and 909 machines, DSP effects and a programmable arpeggiator. It's a multitimbral synthesizer with 4 parts and 32 voices. It’s very extensive. Over the years the channels have been able to do some really cool things with resonance and the truth is that we really love it.

Waldorf Pulse 2: This is another kind of synthesizer, more modern and very effective. It has 3 analog oscillators, an arpeggiator, filters and an LCD screen to go through the display menu. We've had a lot of fun with this one and the sound we get fits well in many situations for us. It's been two years since we got it and we never get bored with it. Like the Roland SH-32, it’s a toy that we also use for our live sets.
