I spent much of Friday rearranging my studio (aka spare bedroom). I'm adding a pair of studio monitors - and to get them into a decent location it's taking quite a bit of rearranging. Anyone have photos of your studio space up? I never seem to take any of mine because it's always a bit of a wreck. Smile

Anyway - fun stuff - just can't wait to get all put back together. Thankfully the keyboard rack and mixer didn't change - just some furniture and various small items (none of which were really "studio" related.)

For a detailed description of the gear, see http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-75.html

I've changed things a bit, I need to take a fresh photo. the Nord Modular is replaced by a new G2, and the Moog has a real keyboard now - a Roland A-37 with a MPU-101 MIDI/CV interface.

Your desk looks very similar to mine... I feel so much better now. Wink

Very cool studio. I like your mix of gear.

Once I get things more settled - I'll snap a shot and post a similar message. I love seeing how other people arrange things and what they use.

Hehe, the desk is the one thing everyone notices!

I'll look forward to the pics of the new setup. There are some other studio pics, or references to them around. I guess you have seen this one:

Yes - I've seen cikira around before. Huge collection of gear.

My little setup really doesn't hold a candle to any of these (yours included)... Not a problem - I like what I have and am comfortable with it. Smile

you say to have a "Small Yamaha MIDI keyboard" but what's that red keyboard I see in front of the Moog Modular? it looks like a Roland AX1 strap on midi controller. Is it?

No, it is a Yamaha toy synth of some kind. Someone gave it to me because it was broken. It needed batteries. Rolling Eyes

At the time that photo was take I didn't use the Moog. Now it is operational and patched into the mixer. The new Roland A-37 is just about as wide as the Moog.

not pictured:
speakers for pa
upright piano
more amps for guitars
lots of extra wires and junk

studio is subject to frequent mess and re-arranging/wiring...perhaps the last part explains the mess part Rolling Eyes

That's a Yamaha SHS-10. I just sold one on ebay. It's not bad if you want a very low cost guitar-style midi controller. Mini keys, No velocity. It has pitchbend, sustain and vibrato. But I couldn't use it that way, because the volume control is at the wrong end. I played it at a few gigs, holding it on my lap, and running some of the cheesy on-board sounds through a guitar processor.

I just got my new monitors hooked up (Mackie HR824) - multiple people have said it'll be like hearing everything in a whole new way... wow - they were right. This is just phenomenal.

yeah. From the first run of the "Gothic" series. apparently the les paul and the explorer were the only worthwhile ones from the line.

I'm fond of the orville gibson imprint on the back of the guitar head...he's creepy lookin' Shocked

the bass is a peavey t-40...leftover from my cousin's metal band in the 80's (the name stenciled on the case is RAMPAGE!)

it looks like you still own plenty of hardware synths (no virtual synths?)

7, Welcome to this site. You made a steathy by significent entry. Your site is cool. I've started listening to your music. Sounds great so far. You have come to the right place, I think. I love this picture. Hope you don't mind me linking to it, but I think everyone has wanted to do this once or twice in their lives.

The NRA should use this picture as part of their lobbying compaign. When people see this, they'll understand what guns are really good for. Mr. Green

seraph: Yup. I'm an old hardware guy at heart. The only virtual synth I'm using is Gigasampler. I've only sort of played with the others. I also hate software mixing. It takes me 4 times as long to dial in the sound I'm looking for. With hardware I just reach up, twist this, dial up that, and I'm done. Creature of habit I suppose. I did manage to break away from analog tape though (but I still haven't brough myself to part with the Tascam 3Cool

JKN: The site sort of goes off in every direction. It's a work in progress. Wink

mosc: I kind of lurked for a few days before posting. I'm been looking around for a site like this for a while. I like it here.

That picture (and the others in that section of the website) are from the Decomputerization period of Tic Tok Men. We got some computers and blew them up, shot some, hit them with hammers, kicked them, drove them over in a car, all kinds of crazy abuse everyone wants to do but never does. It inspired the song Decomputerization and we thought we better capture some of this nonsence on video,. so we made a music video as well. Smile

One day I'll get around to putting the video online.
