Rundgren says, "All I needed aside from the tools I was used to using (Propellerheads Reason Version 4, Line 6 GearBox, and Line 6 TonePort audio interface for guitar and voice, was something that would allow me to record samples. I used RiffWorks, which allows you to specify a loop in Reason that'll play over and over. Keep recording takes in RiffWorks using the Reason file as background."
