Needs more C64's, however I love how you've decorated the place.

Thanks guys!

Currently planning rearrangement of living room/studio situation... as in: studio will go into the corner on the right side (when you take a look at the mid-field monitor picture).... and all the furniture will go where the studio is currently....

also trying to figure out how to integrate C64 and Amiga500 best in this mess :D

because: MOAR IS BETTA!!!


also need some acoustic foams and have to figure something out regarding the microphone... room is too big and echoing all over the place....

For my home studio I use my Rm1x as a sequencer because I like the rock solid timing it gives. This is then midi'd up to several hardware synths. I then sync the Rm1x to my DAW which is Magix music maker that I bought for about £40. I record the parts in to it as wav samples. Then I add additional soft synths such as my CS80v to the music where needed. Each part has additional fx added such as reverb or compression to them before I mix it all down to be mastered later and that's it basically it nothing really fancy. A few synths, dedicated sequencer, PC and monitors.

Due to my Packard Bell Vista PC going wrong somehow, my cards keep vanishing and reappearing on the system.

So I broke out the USB Sound Blaster Live - actually an Audigy in disguise - and found the sound quality's very solid, clear and high in session. No ASIO but even here, splitters on instrument and SB line outputs allow me to hear all at once and record back in onself as a kind-of monitor mixer mode. Least on that PC.

Good job I've others with flawless operation of other good sound systems.

And here's another look at computer corner. We see the undersides of Amigas, Yamaha DD12, Laserdisc player and 520ST; plus laptop server for the Super Nintendo. I really love how the disc drives slide out from the laptop for service, and I have a floppy drive which swaps over the CD Rom.

So much musical crossover from even the consoles.

'Homestudio' is pretty misleading in my case. It's rather "audio home office": a simple 3x3 room that has a pretty Spartan setup. Not fancy, not new (the backbone is from and before 2009) but deadly effective. It does the job and have already completed dosens of commercial grade albums.

Brawn:

- Focusrite SaffirePRO 26io interface
- ECHO Mia MIDI PCI soundcard
- AMD FX-6300 CPU + ASUS M5A97 evo2 + 8GB Kinsgton HyperX
- JBL and M-Audio monitors
- TLAudio FAT2 tube pre / compressors
- SPL Vitalizer
- JVC MI-3000 analogue summer
- Shure and Rode microphones
- Proel and K&M mic stands
- Silverblade and OneWayAudio DI boxes and injectors
- Ensoniq Mirage and M-Audio Ozone keyboards
- AMT, BOSS, KORG, EHX, Dunlop and Digitech guitar electronics
- Seymour Duncan pickups
- Celestion guitar speakers
- Furman power conditioner

Brain:

- Reaper DAW (and an ample of its included plug-ins)
- Stillwell plug-ins
- Melda plug-ins
- Toontrack EZD2 drum sequencer
- Hypersid VSTi (with SIDized soundset)
- C64 (SID 8580) + HERmidi interface + SIDwizard 1.7 native tracker
- a small pack of of free VSTi like the Tyrell N6

Nerve:

- Klotz cables
- Neutrik plugs

That's all I guess. All the rest (workflow, solutions, tricks and decisions) is in the mind.

In these videos some of the stuff can be seen:
