*sigh* My studio is quite frankly embarrassing compared to some of these.

This is all I use. Direct out on my amp into the line-in on the lappy for guitars.

At least I have cake to bring me inspiration! *tear*

Man, my FFX wall scroll looks like ass with the flash on. I don't normally keep my guitars such that they block the chair, but... well, you understand.

My studio, though the Virus was only temporary as it was just kinda too much money for me to spend at the time ($2000) so I got rid of it. That said, I did buy a kick mic and another overhead so I'll be able to track drums once I fix my mixer/get a new one (its emitting a ton of noise now).

Wow, you have a lot more equipment than I imagined. And you got the Virus! I envy that. Are you producing more than DJing I suppose? I took the DJ route more...most of my new toys are based on that.

Like I mentioned before I'm more DJ oriented but there's a MC-505 for some 90's style inspiration.

Not pictured here: a Lexicon Alpha audio interface which I just got last week.

I will update this picture when I get a hold of a camera again.

Is the middle C your favorite note? (The one with the heart sticker on it) :mrgreen:

Yeah :3

That sticker's been on the keyboard almost as long as I've had it [7 years]. I've had to re-color it with red ink two or three times :3

I actually got rid of the Virus about a week after I got it, just because I didn't feel it was good enough to justify spending $2G on it (that said, I will probably try finding a second-hand C or B). But yeah, I'm mainly aiming more at producing at the moment. I've actually started building up a vinyl collection anyway despite my lack of DJ equipment just because I really want to get back into it again. I do download tracks from Beatport though and make mixes in Ableton (actually thats whats going on in the window below this).

Absolutely beastly, I love those classic Roland synthesizers you have.

Meh. Softsynths FTW.

FACT: everyone who'd win the lottery would go apeshit spending it on a big studio with every vintage machine known to man.

No exceptions.

Concur. Even though softsynths generally are the way to go IMO, I can't deny that I'd still line my walls with hardware.

Id just like a dedicated computer and a desk really...

I used to have this setup (mid-late '07), but its changed a bit now; basically get rid of the piano, put the audio card and all the midi controllers in a box in the back of a cupboard, discard the speakers and you got my current setup (a laptop) :P

Such a shame. Few things are nicer than a quality weighted keyboard, even though the keys aren't real wood.

Finally I can show you my unibomber-like closet studio... This sad, sad area is where the magic happens... and where people are killed.

In blur-o-vision. This looks a lot less cramped than it is. There's also a bunch of old clothes and christmas stuff perched precariously on the shelves above there.

n19218130_35989838_6102.jpg

This is also in blur-o-vision. Here's where all of the software sleeps. All of that is worth more than all of my hardware combined. YAY!

n19218130_35989839_6355.jpg

I use Ableton Live 7 with a bunch of plug-ins. Oh, and I use the midnight setting. Looks dope-moneys. Too bad you can't see it in this pic

The one pic I use flash on. My set-up in better light. With my sexy BX8s propped up on books.

Aight, I give in :)

Actually just got a brand new LG Voyager since my old cell phone was due for an upgrade, so I figured I'd test its camera out with these shots. Pretty decent, imo!

Do you record in those rooms, using mics? Seemed a bit unfitting for recordings, due no attenuating of those hard walls, and the fact that you have computers there.
