Gareth Wyn 'Cuba' out today on Beatport

My new track on Maelstrom 'Cuba' is out today, exclusively on Beatport for the next four weeks. You can check the track out, and download if you like it, right here. It's a tech trancer, with a funky electro guitar riff. Enjoy!

New music to check out

I've been hard at work on the production front recently, so here's the first two releases on my own label Beat That...

Gareth Wyn 'Dazed' BEATPORT
Gareth Wyn 'Dafunkt' BEATPORT

You can check the label out at myspace.com/beatthatmusic

Let me know what you think of the tracks. We've got some great releases coming up this year, so keep your eyes peeled!


Studio set up

I've been getting loads of emails asking what set up I use in my studio, so here's a photo:

















I use the following kit to make sweet music...

Apple Mac Pro
Duet Apogee sound card
KRK Rokit 6 speakers
2 x Philips monitors
Evolution MK-249C2

and then Logic Pro with the following plug ins...

NI Komplete - love the FM8 & Reaktor 5
Audio Damage Fluid & Vapor
All the PSP kit, including the Vintage Warmer
Rob Papen, Predator & Albino
Sonalkiss fliters, mainly the TBK

I'm all about VST's for me, I have no external hardware at all. This doesn't mean you can't get great sounds, just get to know Logic Pro inside out.

Hope this answers any questions, stay cool!
