Alesis MMT-8 & HR-16 | The Deadly Combo!

Espen Kraft

"My first sequencer, the Alesis MMT-8. I can still remember it, the excitement of being able to sequence everything I wanted. Since it was pattern based it was easy to loop parts in a live situation and I often played weddings and receptions to earn a buck and it was so great to have all my favorite sequences to play over.
When I paired this up with the HR-16 it became my "deadly combo" in terms of "getting the job done" in a fast and efficient way. The two fit perfectly inside a custom made case.

BTW. The machines spinning around is not 3D animations. It is the actual machines hung by wires in front of a green screen, spun by hand (me) and keyed out if After Effects. Took way longer than it was worth.. or was it worth it? ;-)"
