This week’s episode is an edition of our long-running Tech Talk series that goes behind the scenes to explore Italo Brutalo’s studio setup. Some of his techniques may surprise you: We were shocked to learn that he uses a cheap 12-channel Mackie studio mixer to make Roland SH-101 synth lines!

For Italo Brutalo, the real music comes from interacting with his machines. It might be laborious, but he can be sure his disco riffs don’t sound like anybody else’s. Watch the video above, and be sure to check out all of the other informative videos in our Tech Talk series, which you can watch in the playlist below.
