Curious about your monitors.....they are very deep (physically).

They are made locally, called Exacta, hand made by a guy named Ken Goerres. I bought them off of Paul Haslinger when he upgraded to a bigger floor mount versions. Brian Lustmord also uses these monitors. They are by far the best monitors I have ever owned. They are two ways, I also have a Hafler sub that you can't see in these pictures which helps with the low end.

Here's my ridiculously over the top studio. Hmm, maybe I should change the name to that from now on.  ;D Sorry about the picture quality, taken with my iphone and I don't feel like making anything better for now.

Desk is by KK Audio, the keyboard is the Korg Oasys. Monitors are custom made with a Yamaha M85 amp attached.

Keyboards here are Prophet VS and Korg Z1, box up in the left corner is an old Oberheim DSX sequencer.

Here is my eurorack and Blacet modular, with Alesis AirFXs off to the right.

Rack on left from top to bottom, TC Fireworks, MOTU 24i/o, Ursa Major Stargate 323, Sony R7. Rack on the right  Presonus Central Station, MOTU 2408mkiii, TC Reverb 4000, Lexicon M300, MOTU 308. Below that are a T-Resonator and an Alesis Wedge.

Left rack, Clava Nord Rack 2X, Roland XV-3080. Right rack, Oberheim OBMx, Emu Proteus 2000 which will soon be replaced with my Emu Morpheus now that it is working again.

On the left is an old obviously dirty (since cleaned) 8 core Mac Pro with UAD2 quad on top. In the rack, 2 MOTU midi timepieces, Waldorf Microwave 1, Korg Wavestation A/D, Emu Proteus/3 world, Oberheim Matrix 6R, TC Powercore.

Last but not least, Juice Goose powerstrip, Roland SPF325 Flanger, Sony D7, Lexicon MPX1, Presonus VXP, Presonus Eureka, Oberheim Digital Echoplex.

Steve Roach.  No new album in about three months.  I'm starting to worry.   ;)
Didn't Bloodmoon come out just two weeks ago?  Hehe, how soon we forget.  ;)

Loren... I would be grateful for any leads to a tech you may know when the time comes.  I have a short list of names but no actual reassurance . My M12 is working just fine albeit form day to day it can be an M9 or M7 and back to a M12, though usually most things are stable......Thanks so much.

For what it's worth I took it to Advanced Musical Electronics:

They have been around forever it seems. I remember back when I worked for Oberheim the owner Ruth use to come by at least once a week for parts and such, they always had a close relationship with Oberheim.

Very nice setup Julio. I too have a KK Audio desk, except mine is this gigantic thing with lots of room for rack gear.  :o I'll try to get some pictures up. Too bad KK Audio went out of business, they made great studio furniture.

How do you like the Solaris compared to the A6 you had, or your Matrix 12? Right now I too have a Matrix 12, except it's not mine, I'm taking it in for repair for a friend.

Scott, that's interesting, care to mention some of your favorites of his in DTS? I just last month got my surround sound setup working and am looking for more audio to listen.

Here you go, watch while you can:

Everything and Nothing / Re: What is the Hypnos Forum to you ?
« on: September 26, 2014, 12:38:34 PM »
I think the only thing that Hypnos lacks is a new car section.   ;D

To me Hypnos in many ways is an old shoe. It's not what it was back in the glory days, but it's still a nice place to visit, I usually come here at least once a day to see what's going on. I do miss more of the artist input though, I wish some of them would come back and participate again.

I saw Kenny Wheeler live once, as part of David Torn's Clouds About Mercury tour back in the mid/late 80s. It was an amazing band consisting of Torn on guitar, Bill Bruford on electronic and acoustic drums, Mick Karn on bass, and Kenny replacing Mark Isham on trumpet. Such an amazing group of musicians and Kenny easily held his own with them. One of my all time favorite concerts that I was fortunate to see.

Julio, one can only take so much. I would suggest in the future when dealing with certain people who seem hell bent on causing issues is to just ignore them. From my experience after they don't get the rise they are seeking they tend to just go crawl under the rock they came from and leave us alone.

Forrest Fang and Castleview are the only persons that really listen to our tracks and provide constructive reviews, the other ones are always ''too busy''.

I was never too busy to listen to your music. I never listened because I found you to be rather rude and disparaging when I tried to answer some of your questions. Why should I help someone when they give me grief for the time I took to answer a question? So I decided to ignore you, but you changed your name so I didn't realize till today that you are the same person. So consider yourself ignored again. 

On a related note, I think if it's possible the forum be changed so that it's not so easy to change your user name while posting here. Maybe a person should have to go through an admin to change their user name so we don't have anymore of this nonsense. Just my opinion.

Thanks Bert,

I got his album In Course Of Time many years ago, and I've always wondered what happened to him.

That's beautiful gear but also a beautiful room. (off topic?)

Yes, I thing this studio is a good example of having great gear but not going over the top and having too much. I can see someone doing a lot of great stuff with such a set up.

I've been thinking about doing something similar at work, bringing in 3 or 4 synths, a few effects and just working on some music during my free time at work, a sort of minimal working space to see how that goes. I'll still have my main studio at home with too much gear to fall back on.  ;D

You Send me your gear, I can help you to get some balance.

You send me a very large check and I just might do that.  ;D

I don't care if other artists have smaller or computer based studios,

You completely missed my point but I'm not surprised.

The weak link should always be you and not the gear, so if anything have to improve is the artist not the gear.

If their was a uniformed agreement what the perfect gear is then I might agree with you but their is none. Just about every artist has their own opinion what is perfect when it comes to what kind of equipment they use and what kind of sound quality is desirable. As your pictures show just about every artist has a different palate of instruments that they use. Also, having a large pile of gear does not make one a great artist, their has to be a balance.

To balance out the pictures of huge piles of gear here's one artists studio. Scott Morgan, also known as loscil. Not a lot of gear there but a lot of people seem to enjoy his music anyway.

The banging on rocks line reminds me of the fact that there is an album made with nothing but stones:

Here's another great album of music made almost entirely of stones:

Doesn't get more basic than this, yet it's still a great album.

I kind of agree with the original quote, even though I probably work the opposite of what he says. Inspiration has been my focus for my work, and right now I seem be struggling with that. I should probably just dig in and start making sounds which usually does get me over this creative hump, so in a roundabout sort of way I end up coming around to his point of view.

Technology, when it comes to creativity is really a bit of a moving target. You can complain about not having the right tools, but in the end that's really a crutch to not do anything. People have been doing interesting work for years with hardly a thing. And this is coming from someone who probably is too enthralled with technology and has too many toys to play with.  :o ;D

does the A6 have any kind of unofficial software editor controlled with midi? from what I have heard
it is kind of pain in the ass to program

Yes as we all know it's much easier to program a synth that has something like 70 knobs and just as many buttons with a large LCD screen on a computer with only a mouse.   ;D ;)

Everything and Nothing / Re: TIDAL - Lossless audio streaming service
« on: September 07, 2014, 10:08:40 PM »
Does this interest anyone, or am I alone in my snooty audio ways? Haha!  ;)

I am all for high quality lossless audio, but not the streaming part.

I remember back in the late 90s I brought my OBXa in for repair to a store called Musictek in the valley here in LA. The guy who was the analog synth guru for repairs had me bring my OBXa back to his office so he could start working on it right away. After putting it on his bench I turned around and there stacked in the corner were at least 10 Waldorf Waves, all waiting to be serviced. The tech told me they were the authorized repair shop for them on the West Coast and they would usually receive at least one a week in for repair. Most had been there for months waiting for parts from Waldorf. Great looking synth, one that I lusted after for a while, but after hearing him talk about the difficulties with them and the frequency that they broke down, my lust factor went down quite a bit.
