Clawfinger have been around since 1993 when they released Deaf Dumb Blind which made quite a buzz around the world. After that they have made six more albums, sold around two million copies, and made close to one thousand live shows, including more than a hundred different festivals around the world.
When Clawfinger is in their studio, they use the very same Multiface II, but connected to a Dual Core Athlon thats located in Studio 2 during the songwriting process. When everything is ready to be recorded for real, they take that computer to Studio A and plug it into a Digiface thats connected to a Mackie D8B with 24 channels of Adat lightpipes. Complete compability from the demo, to the finished album, to the Live show.
Jocke Skog (Keyboards) says: "Through the years, my keyboard/loop combination, have gone through the evolution of sample playing technology. From an Akai s1000 with 8mb of RAM, to a Laptop with Gigabytes of RAM. To get reliability and soundquality, I need a soundcard I can trust, because unexpected things will, and are going to happen. After I got the RME Multiface I, its not the soundcard that is the problem. Now if only RME could make guitar strings with the same quality "
Thank you, Jocke! We are thinking about it!
Fear And Loathing Studios, Spånga-Sweden has a Digiface, two Multifaces II and in another PC is an old Hammerfall DSP 9652 from early 2001. - "Still working like a champ!"
Their latest album "Life Will Kill You" is to be released on July 27, 2007 by Nuclear Blast. Clawfinger is currently out playing all over Europe.
