***DANIEL KERN INTERVIEW WITH YTMS ABOUT VSTS ON 10/23/2017***
YC: Daniel, you are a big fan of using VSTs in your music production, right?
DK: Yes definitely! Either to spice up the sound of recordings, or simply because its impossible to have that wide range of instruments available physically.
YC: Sounds good. Can you explain, for those who don’t know, what a VST is basically?
YC: So there’s two kinds of VSTs then? Sample-based, and sine-waved based?
DK: I would say sample-based & digital. Sometimes they start off with a saw wave instead of a sine wave, for example.
YC: Ok, so VST stands for Virtual Studio Technology?
DK: Yes, as far as I remember, that’s what it stands for.
YC: What do you need in order to use a VST, in terms of gear / software?
YC: How long have you been using VSTs?
