2010 MacBook Pro 13 inch
Push and live regular(?)
That's it for now due to lack of space
As for my favourite it's hard to say between push and the electribe they are great in there own ways
I guess the tribe with the iPad together would get a slight upper hand due to how compact yet powerful the combo is I am still just scratching the surface
Well I moved my gear back home. The studio spot I had hoped for.... well it takes a certain kind of relationship to keep a studio going with another person. Either way I have a lot of gear constantly at my disposal now so shit's about to get wild.
Half decent desktop computer
Focusrite Saffire PRO 14
Korg Electribe ESX
Korg Volca Beats
WMD Geiger Counter
Clavia Nord Micro Modular
A very very basic eurorack setup
Ibanez SR205 Bass guitar
My favourites are the Nord Micro Modular and the WMD Geiger Counter as my eurorack is at its very beginning, but I'm sure that as it evolves a little more it will turn into my favourite piece of equipment
Schiit Magni/Modi (that I don't use most of the time)
Grado Sr225i (which I use even less than the Schiit)
I'm looking forward to getting a mouse, it'll be a lot faster when I don't have to click something 4 times to get the intended effect. And a midi keyboard would be sweet since my computer keyboard is only guaranteed to play two-note chords.
At least my studio doesn't get dirty since I do all my work in bed or my school's library .
-Half finished electronics projects
-live wires, dirty coffee mugs
-hot soldering irons
-the sense of bewilderment
-a virus TI and a handful of cheaper synths
-a stationary PC with 4 scrims for super ultra widescrim
-opened up homemade plexiglass tetrahedron instruments on the repair bench
-more wires than could possibly be necessary, jesus christ are they breeding?
-a cat that is both dead and alive, and annoying.
I have my pc, a guitar with all of the tone knobs bypassed and the pickups replaced with something cheap I picked up online, a $100 bass, 25 key midi controller, maschine, sm 57, uhh... some blue condenser I can't actually use next to a highway, another much larger midi keyboard that never gets used, a privia px-150 digital piano. Brilliant action. I never use it. Oh, and a shruthi 1 4pm edition
Lately I've just been making patches in either massive or on the shruthi, then rendering them to multisamples. Allows me to kind of "freeze" the sound in place, but without locking myself into one set progression.
I currently am borrowing my buddy's Korg Electribe Sampler which is how I made the link below.
That aside, I have an MS-20 mini with a few eurorack modules (dixieII, SOBVCF and a few others), a Roland SH-201, JBL LSR305 studio monitors, a Roland TD-3 electronic drum kit and a focusrite saffire pro24 living in my Montreal studio full time (I'm here most of the year for school) and a microKorg and acoustic drum kit back home.
HP EliteBook 6930p Core2Duo laptop computer - what I like about it is it was designed to withstand high temperatures and vibrations. It gets hot but it doesn't crash. It was used, but I erased it and put Linux on it.
Alesis M1Active 320 USB Audio Interface/Powered Monitors - I like that these are small but sound good at least when the back port is plugged up with socks.
Alesis Q25 25-Key USB MIDI Controller - It's not really enough key's but it's light and compact and the build quality and action is good.
Sony headphones - not pro but they work good enough to compose with. They are a little bit bass heavy.
Poise VSTi drum sampler (very good for layered one-shots)
Toxic Biohazard VSTi FM/Subtractive synth
Harmor VSTi Additive synth
FL Studio DAW (good step editor for drums)
...and a bunch of freeware VST(i)'s
My favorite is probably Reaper because it lets me get the most work done.
But for software synths, Toxic Biohazard is really easy and powerful.
The thing about my "studio" is that it all fits onto a tiny desktop in my bedroom. Hopefully if I can move next year, I'll get a desktop computer instead of a laptop and get better headphones and a 49-Key MIDI controller.
But that's down the line and I don't have much money anymore.
