    Default Martin Gore uses Traktor!

    For those of you who may not know, Martin Gore is the musical genuis responsible for most of Depeche Mode's music over the last almost 30 years. If yuo look at the 3:20 mark or so in this video, he is clearly using Traktor - looks to be in a 2 deck configuration. Can't see any controller though

    Yes Martin does use traktor and a X1, I wanted to go to the event but I have a sunday night residency that I do.

    Plus the after party event was put on by the Mod from the DM website/forum admin Brat, which is not liked by many in the DM world. Becareful, if you have any bootleg DM stuff he will come after you! You have been warned.

    Cooooooool...!!!

    Doesnt surprise me though cus Dave Gahan has been a long time user of NI products.
    Funny that Vince Clarke also uses NI stuff and both have done Tech Talk interviews for NI.

    Great to see these legends giving NI stuff rep.

    Ironic how the first clip of the video is Recoil (Alan Wilder) who should get a lot of credit for DM's sound. Their production took a massive nose dive when he left.

    Thanks for the links Karlos! Vince Clark is awesome. He was a big part of my midi and synth enthusiasm in the late 80's and 90's. Got extremely lucky (right place right time) and had a chat with him once about midi and music after an Erasure show in Atlanta.
