SoundOkapi plays a variety of different instruments.

In 2020, when he embarked on his electronic project, he initially utilized a Prophet XL from Sequential, earning him a coveted spot on Sequentials artist list

After incorporating the Prophet into two albums and numerous live performances and home recordings, SoundOkapi eventually sold it. However, he acquired other equipment during this time, including Soma instruments and the Yamaha Reface. Currently, his top choices are the Haken ContinuuMini and the Soma Terra.

For more details about his frequently used gear, continue reading below..


ContinuuMini from Haken

Expressive synthesizer

One of SoundOkapi's absolute favorites, featured in nearly every concert and prominently showcased in many of his releases and videos. This instrument boasts a plethora of spectacular sounds, activated by finger movements in 3D across its red surface.

Koto synthesizer

Waraku from Suzuki


Originally devised as a practice tool for traditional Japanese koto players, the Waraku enables silent practice, making it ideal for late-night sessions in small spaces. However, it is actually a remarkably beautiful instrument in its own right. The Waraku in SoundOkapi's collection, aged 25-30 years, still performs flawlessly.

SoundOkapis most popular video on YouTube features a demonstration of the Waraku

No link to the wonderful Waraku, but here is Suzukis main page

Drum machine

DrumKid from Matt Bradshaw

A straightforward drum machine

Inexpensive, low-fi, yet capable of introducing randomness both in rhythm initiation and variation during play. Matt Bradshaw is currently developing a more sophisticated version featuring hi-fi samples, which will hopefully be released later in 2024.

In this live recording from Berlin DrumKid collaborates with the Yamaha Reface CP through the Soma Cosmos.

Loop pedal

RC-300 from Boss

Loop station

Featuring three independent loops that can be synced or left unsynchronized, the Boss RC-300 has been a crucial tool for SoundOkapi in crafting the sound sculptures on the album Ataraxia While the looper itself is not audibly discernible, its influence is woven into the structure through long repetitions.
