THE FOUNDERS

Nick Klimenko

Nick Klimenko, composer & sound designer, certified teacher of Steinberg/Yamaha & PluginBotique companies.

Nick is a head of a well-known Chronos group – one of the world’s leading Ambient musical project. Since Nick’s first serious release in 2004 with Chronos project he composed 15 albums & more than 100 releases in whole as well as sound libraries for NI Kontakt, Educational Courses & Soundsets for many synths: Sylenth1, Massive, Korg Polysix, Yamaha AN-1X, Spire, Access Virus, Animoog, Roland System-1. In 2010 Korg supported the official bank for Micro-X model on their German website – it was a great inspiration for Nick to move on.

His story began with the inspiration provided by his older brother that was involved in electronic music since 90’s as a part of musical band “Virtual Mode” focused on breakbeat & jungle music with a gentle touch of intelligence & atmosphere. Nick started to create music in 1997 using old tracker systems like Mod Plug and Impulse tracker. In comparison with today’s DAW sequencers they were low-functional: no midi, no VST – only samples. But it was really fun to start. In 2004 Nick found Cubase as a very powerful and inspiring DAW.
