What piece of equipment do you have to show us today?

The TC Helicon, Voice Live Touch 2.


How did you come across this particular item?

I was researching looping stations and the VLT2 is the one I felt most comfortable using. 


What is that you like so much about it?

The easy interface, programmable vocal effects, midi control, & how easy it is to travel with. 


How do you use it, and how has it shaped the way you write music?

The VLT2 is a very big part of my live set — between each song we jam out and create vocal loops that intertwine the set list together. I also write a lot on i — it’s the way I start all my songs and I use it to record the very first demo of all my songs.


Any other interesting points/stories about it?

The very first time I met Wally De Backer (Gotye) at his house, he did a quick rendition of Heart’s A Mess on it while he was hooking up the VLT2 to his sound system for me. 


Tell us a little bit about what you have coming up? (shows, releases etc)

Well I just released my debut EP via Future Classic titled XXIX. I’m playing a few shows in the new year that are yet to be announced as well as playing Beyond The Valley, Field Day & Southbound with Ta-Ku.
