Those to the right are electronic piano so i dont use them for music production , just to mess around but those on the table all have their own fonction , the alesis qx49 is my main keyboard for melody , i use the faders/knobs for effect , level adjustment ect . The akai mpk mini is mainly for when i travel but the pads also feel really good and use the keys when i want to hit a lower or higher octave since i only have 49 keys on the alesis , also i use the build in appergiator sometime . I use the akai mpd 18 for drums and sample beat .
Using the studio for livestreaming as well now, well, my daughter is mainly doing her twitch thing.
Just built a new comp for some video editing and livestreaming tasks.
There is a green screen that goes up as well when livestreaming.
The computer has to run Open Broadcast Software and Elgato HD60 Game capture
software at the same time.
Here are some pics. More photos coming.
That is not where the computer will stay, still running tests, and overclocking.
Monitors are pulled forward and have a location on the floor if mixing/mastering.
I have a whole back wall with other monitoring setup as well.
New comp specs below photos!
I will be doing a full photo shoot soon, as well as all the pics of the build, when I get some time.
Here are some quick shots...
The computer will not be on that glass table, it will be going under the desk on its platform.
I have some rubber feet that its stock feet will be sitting on, bringing the bottom up 2 inches more in height.
The Dell Inspiron music production computer(Dell - Inspiron Desktop with Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q6600-8GB RAM) is on the left, under the desk, peeking out under the chair. Audio interface I use is the Emu 1820M(discontinued).
This is a finished basement. 25'x13'x8'. Acoustically tuned and treated by me using acoustic measurement equipment
that I have. Setup for mixing/mastering audio, and vocal recording can be done anywhere, but I have a place for that as well.
Floor to ceiling corner bass traps with 32" face, wall and ceiling panels, front wall custom built @ 9" thick.
Will be attaching some lighting on the sides of the custom built front wall, for camera lighting.
There is a Logitech C920 HD camera on the center monitor.
Additional lighting is used on tripods to light green screen.
I have other mics and stands as well.
Mic arm attached to desk: RODE PSA1 Swivel Mount Studio Microphone Boom Arm
Custom painted shockmount.
So Im in the process of building my studio. I have 2 large rooms, one is the live / guitar room, the other is the control room. Off of the control room there is a hallway with 2 smaller rooms, one will be a drum room, the other will be another recording room without sound proofing to utilize the natural reverb of the room. There is also a closet which will be a vocal booth. Currently for equipment i have:
A Dell PC w/8GB ram
fostex studio monitors
alesis v49 midi keyboard
Reason 8, cubase 5, and abelton live
Misc. mics, headphones, amps, and stands
I have already ordered and am waiting on:
NI Maschine mk2
stanton line level turntable allen and heath GL2400 live mixer
Peavey 32FX usb mixer
and KRK Rokit 5s
