Peter James Keys Software hillsong collected

LOGIC STUDIO 9 (with MAINSTAGE) – This is what I use to play and organise all my plugins live and at home when tracking and composing.

Synthogy Italian Grand – A great piano to cut through the mix live. We use this a lot in church.

Synthogy Upright Piano’s – I use the Vintage Upright a lot in church as well.

Imperfect Samples Fazioli – My no. 1 piano I use when I don’t need the piano to cut through the mix as much. e.g. Soundtrack genre music.

Imperfect Samples Braunschweig Upright Piano – Used almost exclusively on the album Cornerstone, (apart from the track Cornerstone which was Ivory’s Vintage Upright).

Spectrasonics Omnisphere – Probably my no. 1 go to plugin for sounds!

Spectrasonics Trilion – A library consisting of real and synth basses that complement Omnisphere nicely.

Arturia V-collection – A great collection of vintage keyboard simulators.

Native Instrument’s Komplete 6 – (Newer version is Komplete 8). Has a lot of great plugins e.g. Scarbee Mark I is my go-to Rhodes plugin.

SOFTWARE EFFECTS:

Waves Studio Classics Collection – I use the SSL Channel strip on all my channel strips for EQ and light compression when needed.

Waves Gold Bundle – A collection of over 30 great effects plug-ins. I especially like the ‘S1 Imager’ to widen my synth sounds.

Voxengo Elephant – A really nice transparent Limiter

PSP 84/85 – A great delay plugin modelled off an old Lexicon delay unit.

HARDWARE EFFECTS:

TC Electronics Nova Delay – Great (stereo in and out) delay pedal.

Moogerfooger Ring Modulator – Has amazing analog overdrive that I use a lot.
