Spent a few weeks on this... Hope the music that results from it is good too. Razz

Last setup before the new one... I loved the view but it was taking up most of the small room...

I have made a few alterations and improvements to an already perfect setup... and now actually consider this the complete studio of my dreams!

I got a Mac Mini to take care of running Kyma - which runs a lot better on Mac than PC - and the Mac also has Numerology on it, which is a software step sequencer in a modular format. I have a MOTU micro express MIDI interface connected up to all external hardware. Also on the Mac is Madrona Labs Aalto, a very nice semi-modular synth plugin, and Qattro-DSP audio and sample editor. All my samples are on the Mac, for use with Kyma and Numerology, and DSP-quattro can send samples to the Machinedrum via MIDI.

The PC takes care of mixing, through an RME Multiface II interface, and also has a second fast hard disk for multi track recording. The Behringer BCF2000 is used as a controller for the Multiface. I have Reaper on the PC for mixing down and other general audio mischief.

The Akai MPK49 keyboard is connected only through MIDI as its USB connection is rather convoluted. All the MIDI routing is taken care of by the MOTU MIDI interface. I use the faders and knobs on the MPK to control the most used parameters in Kyma - which almost always runs at least a crossfading looper and an Eventide'ish reverb.

Kyma is connected to the Multiface by ADAT in and out, using TC Electronic Impact Twin. The Multiface is a Matrix mixer as well as audio interface, which makes it possible to route anything to anywhere. The grey patch bay is homemade, and takes some of the ins and outs on the back of the audio interfaces and puts them on the front. If unconnected, it routes a few channels between the Multiface and MOTU Ultralite, which is the Mac's audio interface.

The ipad runs a few audio apps, but my favourite is Lemur, which controls a few chosen parameters on hardware and software. It takes a bit of time to organise a full setup with the Lemur, and it is always a work in progress.

Machinedrum, Evolver, Haken Continuum... beautiful instruments and a wonderful trio on its own.

The ipod touch and Mini Kaoss Pad complete the roudup. These are often used for bleeps and noises, just as the rest of it is. Razz

It is quite a compact and minimalist setup, as far as dream setups go... but it really helps me focus and is still incredibly flexible. Now all I need to do is learn how to use it all.
