Kool&Klean – Volume III
Multi-instrumentalist Konstantin Klashtorni is living in a little town in North Rhine Westphalia, Germany. In his small studio he works with a very simple and decent setup. He uses DAW Cubase, one of the best recording software in the world, using Yamaha Studio monitors, Neumann micros and Universal Audio plug-ins for mixing and mastering – all this run on an i5 machine with Windows. His acoustic instruments consist of some guitars, saxes, flute, and a midi keyboard as controller.
Most important are his ears. Konstantin comments: “My ears, that’s something I’m deeply thankful to my loved GOD for, they are responsible for making sound my simple equipment great.˝
A strong desire is sailing for the distance, just across the sea into the wide world. Sail is the ultimate anthem for that longing. On It Will Rain makes Konstantin extensive use of his UAD collection. On his album one finds melodic pearls such as Twilight, a harmonic interplay of acoustic guitar and keyboard sounds.
