Micr.Pluto experiments with iD14
SOUTH AFRICA: Tshego Nyatlo is a professional visual artist and designer during the day, but come nightfall he takes on the moniker of Micr.Pluto. Mr Nyatlo’s alter ego is an experimental music producer and DJ with a focus on hip-hop infused electronica who plays at festivals across South Africa. To keep his setup simple, he invested in an Audient iD14 compact USB audio interface.
‘My workflow fluctuates a lot since I am constantly trying out new things,’ explained Mr Nyatlo. ‘I usually start with recordings/collecting sounds which become the foundation of my compositions and try and build songs around those. The iD14 fits well into my process because it's portable and I can record anywhere, but also great for my home studio because I prefer to mix my own music. My setup is made up of Midi keyboard, MicroKorg Vocoder, AKAI MPK, Korg PadKontrol, Monotribe and the iD14 soundcard.’
