OK here’s my setup.
It’s a small 11 X 9 foot bedroom which I claimed when my daughter moved out on her own.
The first pic shows my Vocal Station, Yamaha PSR keyboard and work bench – I setup, repair and modify guitars.
Next is the Mix and Amp area. Here I have a rack with a Behringer 12 channel mixer (overseen by my executive producer, Bongani
). There’s also a patchbay, Digitech vocal harmoniser, storage for my amp simulators and on the floor is an old beat up and rusty Peavey amp (brilliant jazz tone!). Next up are the bass amps (Peavey 15 inch and a Chinese 12 inch combo). Guitar amps are my beloved Fender Twin with a baby Fender reverb and a Roland Micro Cube on top of that.
And the last is "mission control". I built the desk and the two bass traps (left and right) myself. I use an Acer laptop with a dual core 1.8 Ghz processor and 4 Gigs of RAM on Vista and a 22 inch monitor. Software includes MC6 Pro Studio, EZDrummer and Garatan Personal Orchestra.
Above the monitor is my Bose Wave radio/CD player which also serves as a reference monitor. My near fields are Behringer MS16’s.
On the desk to the left is a stack consisting of a Behringer tube modelling preamp, modelling compressor and 4 channel headphone amp. Atop that is my 2 in 2 out USB interface. My usual chain is instument/mic > tube preamp > mixer > compressor > audio interface.
Below the desk to the right is a cabinet for Mic storage. I have a Behringer B1 condenser, a Shure SM 57 and 58, and a few other e-bay bargains. Under the left side are two cheap CD racks which house my effects pedals, DI boxes and other gadgets.
I estimate 75 percent of my gear was bought second-hand on e-bay. There are some serious bargains to be had out there!
I’ve just completed my setup and intend creating my own backing tracks for a lounge type duo which will hopefully see life later this year.
