Good spot. It is the same MIDI concertina. It was getting the MIDI concertina set me on this whole sorry ( ;) ) path. The Handsonic is an electronic hand drum made by Roland.

Here is my temporary setup - for some undefined value of 'temporary'

Image
It's a bit more cluttered that usual 'cos it's got all the dining room junk in there (major refit in progress) :(

P.S.
Yes, the room acoustics are pretty dire - but it will have to do for now.

I recently decided to review my set up to make it leaner and meaner and the result is this:

Image

So I can run 12 channels (plus 4 with an extra pre-amp) in the studio.

The room was professionally assessed and treated accordingly:

(Somewhat distorted by the wide angle lens).

I also have a room adjacent with way lines which is also treated but doubles up as a guest bedroom.

As you can see, I'm an 'in-the-box' fellow. Nice pre-amps being Audient and Apollo (plus DAV for location) and good monitoring. A cupboard full of mics - it's really very simple.

This is work in progress. I just added a second 27" screen, and found that my current monitor stands have too large a base to fit on the desk sides on the right position.. so I'll have to screw a custom support on the sides of the desk to get them forward. I just ran a test tonight and I was surprised that the stereo image and the tone was reasonable even with the monitors in that position but anyway's gonna be carpentry time :) In this new position I also need more foam on the back wall. Have not yet found a good solution to place the Auratone (hence the copper wire on the side), the brick and another preamp but I'll come. The empty space is for one more piece of outboard I'm placing tomorrow but a third 4U rack is going there. The pine plank is just temporary for a proof of concept - even if a friend commented that it's in tune with the Oslo location :D

Outside the picture (on the ceiling and back from the seat) there's more treatment and diffusors and a cylinder bass trap. This is a side extension of my reasonably large living room so bass modes are not a big problem, lots of open space where the bass goes and the odd shape makes sure it doesn't reflect back.

Feeling glad I resurrected this, was really scared that, these days, most would post a photo of a laptop with plugins!

loving bobs space and that harp is 'way cool', but the clipboards are the most interesting.
I suspect that Mr B is probably the most organised member of the forum :)

Sams space is also very cool ! Big enough to track drums
BTW what is the very pretty acoustic on the right?

CS70 some very boutique rack gear :) wondering what is the box far left on your desk?

Hard to say, but I find clip boards sort of cute! Each major project has it's own clip board and depending on my role in the project I wear a white or brown coat......... ;)

The gray one? It's The Brick, a cool old preamp / DI from Groove Tubes which works superbly for bass and add some mojo to any non-tube condenser microphone. Still gotta find a new place for it :)

:D

FWIW, the 'nice acoustic' jumpy mentions is a Rob Aylward hand built Selmer Style. I think it is not the one in my avatar, IIRC that was my Gitane, which looks pretty much identical but the Aylward sounds considerably nicer........

Recently rebuilt my setup in an attic space, all of the panels were a DIY job as the space is quite interesting to say the least... Some trusty old Reveals getting some use until I invest in new monitors.

That time I came round with the Mixcube (which I can still see there) you were in a small space, might have been a cellar? Can't quite remember. Anyway, looks a lot more impressive now, I have to say.

Hi CC, yes that's your mixcubes twin - invaluable mix reference (thanks Mike) I was in the box room when we met, but we moved since then and I sacrificed my requirement for 'must be in walking distance to a pub' for 'must have somewhere not in the house where I can make music without restrictions'
We found this place with an already semi converted double garage and I've spent the last 3 years building it into the above. The missus has an office upstairs that we just finished.

It's getting there now and being able to build the treatment directly into the walls really helped- that's a massive bass trap behind the corner bookcase that also acts as a dead corner for singers to have their backs to, for example - It works really well...

Next job is to convert the storage behind the brick wall into a 'loud room' or Iso booth...

...if I can stop going to Gardiner Houlgate guitar auctions every time they have a sale on...

If you mean me, yes it's great! But came at a cost...
It's worth it though even if we're looking at another year without a decent holiday...

Hah! Yes, Gardiner Houlgate can be addictive. I sometimes go along to their auctions to watch the concertinas go for quite considerable sums sometimes.

PS you'll see my half of the Mixcube pair in my picture too. Explanation: a pair of Mixcubes used to be quite a lot cheaper than two Mixcubes bought separately - the differential is less now but still present. So me and J bought a pair between us.
