Control Room


Oh God, I don’t even know where to start, it’s an older picture anyway, but the most up-to-date one I have right now. I’ll just pick out some highlights:

The MIDI controller is a Nektar P4 – hands down the best controller out there for Bitwig Studio (the DAW software I use).

The other controller is the Native Instruments Maschine Studio. I got it when it first came out and it’s easily my most favorite toy in this room! The possibilities are nearly endless with the thing. I love NI’s stuff, I use a lot of plug-ins from Komplete 10 Ultimate.

The speakers are a pair of M-Audio BX8’s (on the stands) and a pair of M-Audio BX5’s (on the monitor riser). The solo speaker is a Behringer Behritone (grot box) wired to the Allen & Heath ZED 24 in mono. Actually, speaker-wise, everything is on its own channel and its own submix on the board, so I can get three very different pictures of how a mix sounds. The BX8’s are what I use ninety-percent of the time though. I’m very accustomed to them, and I can get pretty damned good results in my mixes with them.

There’s an M-Audio M-Track on the desk, which has since been replaced by a Presonus AudioBox 1818VSL. I never seem to want to get rid of it though. It’s a tough, reliable, low-latency little unit. I go back and forth with running my other computer with it and a Lexicon Alpha, which behaves really badly with Bitwig, but seems totally content with anything else. It all runs back and forth through the ZED mixer, so at the end of the day, everything pretty much sounds consistent anyway.

And yeah, I collect Star Wars Black Series stuff. The tie fighter suspended from the ceiling is two-feet tall!
