Stazma: Tracker allows me to compose very complex drum patterns without using a computer
This time we are visiting our friend from France, Stazma.
Polyend: What is the most crucial device used throughout your career? Presently?
Stazma: It’s most probably the computer running Ableton Live as everything I record end up being tweaked in there. Presently my main instruments are modular synthesizers, often sequenced from your Tracker or Play.

Polyend: Can you reveal one sound design or music production secret to us?
Stazma: One of my favorite things to do with anything analog, is to record multiple “hits” or notes of the sound I want to use later and then load those in a sampler that will play a different “slice” every time. I allows to keep the analog vibes from your instruments inside a computer / sampler based project.
Stazma prepared a project for the Tracker with a sample pack of outstanding Buchla sounds

Polyend: Why do you choose Polyend devices?
Stazma: I was first attracted by the Tracker as it could allow me to compose very complex drum patterns out of sample without using a computer. I ended up using mostly as a midi sequencer, as well as the Play, as I found those two to be very easy and fun to use.
