I’m a music composer, sound designer and multi-instrumentalist. I started playing drums and guitar and then started to collect and play instruments from all around the world. Fascinated by all kinds of music, I dived deep in music production by composing, recording, editing and mixing a lot of different audio material. I also started to produce original music videos that I share on my YouTube channel called Lou Wiss.
My creation process always starts by looking for new ideas, as I always have an eye out for things I haven’t experienced. I love to think outside the box and to experiment with a lot of different instruments and objects, taking time to edit and mix the audio I captured. Of course I also like to use virtual instruments to create quickly, be able to layer sounds I recorded previously, and to have more colors in my sonic palette while writing new pieces of music.
My favorite UVI product is the Attack EP88. It is the virtual instrument that gives me the most feeling of having a real instrument under my fingers. It has for me all the details, perfection, imperfection and sound quality that made me think that UVI is one of the best audio tech companies in the world. I also love Falcon for its ability to make incredible sounds that could be very hard or impossible to do outside the box, and how you can manipulate your own audio samples with it. A very modern and inspiring tool!
What I love about Quadra is how it brings the in & out of the box approach. You can play some individual acoustic sounds with ease, or create some complex layered, arpeggiated and processed sound with it. It can be a real time-saver and I can’t think of any virtual instrument that can do this with this level of versatility.
It was an honor for me to be part of the development of Quadra Muted and Harmonics ! So cool to have sampled part of my instrument collection in this product. There were many challenges during the conception of the sound library of Quadra. I had to be patient, quieter than ever and very focused while keeping all the instruments in tune! As a creative mind, the hardest part for me was to wait for the process to be done so I could enjoy playing with the thousands of samples I recorded!
