Hi RJD2,

First of all I'd like to say that its great that a guy as busy as yourself takes the time to speak with people who are so in love with music, it speaks volumes for you.

Forgive me if my questions aint the most technical but Im fairly new to making music so here it goes...

Apart from mixing how big a part does software play in your creative process? Do you ever feel the need to change due to advancements with musical software? I realise you build most of your own set up and you have alot of hardware but I was wondering if you would share your thoughts on software based production?

Secondly, after completing a project such as an album do you feel drained of creativity in that you might take a break from music for a while or are you right back on it immediately?

Lastly..If you could collaborate with anyone..past or present..who would it be?

Thanks for taking the time to read the above
