Interview with Adam@Tama who arranges and performs the songs of anime, such as "Idol Master". As a amateur musician who loves electronic instruments, he seess malletKAT in this way.
1. Which malletKAT do you play?
I play the malletKAT Grand. I got that on January 2012. So it has been 5 years.
2. What do you like about malletKAT?
I personally like electronic instruments, and I own various kinds of them. This can be said to most of electronic instruments, but I like the possibility and creativity of them.
Especially, malletKAT is an interface shaped as PERCUSSION. I like that I can play various sounds such as the marimba, xylophne, glockenspiel with one machine. For arranging and composing, I often use the preset sound, vibraphone. It is my favorite.
In addition to that, I sometimes play multiple parts by myself, because I can change the sounds. 5 octaves malletKAT pro Grand with expander allow me more expression. Especially, it is difficult to produce lower sounds with normal instruments.
3. What is your next performance opportunity?
Recently, as a member of "Imas Producers Band Kansai", I play the malletKAT pro Grand. It is a gathering of people who play songs from the anime/game "Idol Master". You can see the detail from Twitter (@imas_PB_Kansai)
I am also managing a group, called "product-EDW". For a fan conventions, I published CDs. Next time would be Comic Market 92.
malletKAT is for everyone who loves music.
