Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Owen Rabbitt is an artist that relishes in tangibility, creating controlled chaos with things he can touch and feel and wrangle especially the hardware synthesizer.
Enmore Audio spoke with Owen about some of the gear that has been inspiring him lately, which includes the Arturia Drumbrute and Minibrute as well as the KORG Minilogue, SV1 Vintage Digital Piano and the MS-20 Synthesizer.
Owen also speaks about working with working with fellow producer Ribongia on his brilliant new single Golden, and why he loves the rough imperfections of hardware synths.
Is there a company or maker you feel like you gel with best?
Owen: Arturia. It’s probably cos I’m poor though. I’m sure if I had a Moog Voyager or an Oberheim OB8 I’d probably say that. I like Korg as well. I’ve got the Minilogue and the Korg SV1, which is a super powerful weighted keyboard that sounds bananas. The next synth I wanna get is the Korg MS-20 mini. That thing looks hell chaotic and screechy and awesome.
