As well as being an in-demand DJ, Leon Bolier is known for his many trance and, more recently, deep house productions, including the soon-to-be-released Every Single Piece (listen above). The track will be available in download stores via Spinnin’ Deep on March 16.
Without further ado, let’s hear from the man himself:
There are a ton of bitcrushers out there, but this one does its job in a great way. Most of the time, I am using TAL Bitcrusher as some kind of a limiter–a tip the guys of Mightyfools actually gave me. Works great on the more harsh sounds for me. Slightly cranking up the volume on the bitcrusher and actually bitcrushing a tiny bit works wonders for me. Oh, and I prefer using setting III on this one.

Freeware tape delay that does what it says: make great tape delay tails. I am not a Logic user, but I heard it actually emulates one of the Logic tape delays. I usually use it to create those infinite delay tails that self resonate. Great little plugin!
(Available as Bionic Supa Delay in Windows VST format)
Another tape delay plugin–this one I use if I want to go a bit more crazy timing-wise. The noise and flutter knobs work wonders when you want to spice things up. It’s a four-track delay (as opposed to Bionic delay which is two-track) which also means you can add to the craziness this way. Cranking the feedback knob up a notch turns your sound into an ear-piercing infinite loop, so be careful with this. Other than that, it’s a great addition to my plugin collection.
