while Lil Jon was recording at Circle House in Miami, he and his
engineer, Mark Vinten, sat down with IK Multimedia and discussed how
they ve enjoyed working with IK s line of products.
Lil Jon: "I just got to say, I love IK. Sonik Synth 2
is Crazzy! Easy 2 use. It took me a couple of days just to go thru all
of the sounds! I love it and I have used it for some of my beats..."
Mark Vinten: "We
use a lot of Sonik Synth drums. We ve done some tracks with Rob
Cavallo, Greenday s Producer and 99% of the drums that got used on a
couple of the songs are all from IK products."
IK: Do you use it on keyboards too?
Mark Vinten: "It
has the phaser in there and the BPM Button is the craziest thing I love
about the stompboxes. It s easy. You re in then you re out... You don t
have to dig into a bunch of menus."
