basically consists of my office in our new condo in Petaluma, California.
I have a much more simplified system than I did in days past...
Once upon a time, I used to have the following equipment housed in an SKB rack:
Boss 8 Channel Mixer (on top of rack)
MXR Distortion Pedal (on top of rack)
Zoom Studio 1204
JL Cooper MIDI Patch Bay
Roland MKS-70 Super JX
Boss DR-660 Drum Machine
Roland MT-32 Synth Module/Doorstop
DOD Chorus Pedal
Peavey PV-1200 Power Amplifier
...but now times have changed, and I've gone down to just these pieces of equipment:
Roland Juno-60 - I have loved this keyboard ever since I bought it in 1986...
Zoom Studio 1204
M-Audio Radium 61 MIDI controller keyboard
M-Audio O2 MIDI controller keyboard
Dell Inspiron 8200 Laptop
Yamaha Yamaha MG10/2 Stereo Mixer
MOTU FastLane MIDI Interface
Desktop PC - running Audacity and other recording software ane plugins
I still have the Boss DR-660 Drum Machine, the Peavey PV-1200 Power Amplifier and Peavey speakers, the DR-660 I hardly use
now, and the amp and speakers I still use frequently when I practice or play out with my band,
The South Downs, or when
On my Dell laptop, my current setup includes Reason 3.0 and Reaktor 5 - both awesome applications, and I'm
really looking forward to doing some crazy stuff with Reaktor...
I'm having a blast using Reason as a live tool - just like a rack synth. The ironic thing is that
I'm not using it as a tool for doing techno, trance, or house like everyone else, but I'm actually using
it for piano, organ and other lo-fi sounds. It's awesome, and hopefully you'll be able to check it out
on some of the new recordings we (The South Downs) are doing.
