Whilst the GL2400 is a nice bit of kit, with all due respect, please don't try to compare it to an SSL (I'm an SSL mix engineer/producer so feel qualified to say this - trying not to sound big-headed, just stating fact)

Comparing the circuitry on these to items is like saying a Moog filter sounds the same as a Roland filter.... just because they perform the same job with similar components. And again, take this as a positive feedback, not trying to sound patronising.

(wieird how GS gets you second-guessing how your posts will be interpreted!! feckin place!)

Anyhoo, back on topic - new kit for me?

Got an ipad recently, so I'm looking at software to use (honestly, I think iPad is the answer to a question nobody asked, but I thought I 'd try it anyway - so far, not impressed)

Re-arranged my studio, so will try to get a pic or 2 up, but haven't been able to set up all my toys yet! :D

Hey guys,

It's time for an update I've built myself a new desk (inspired from Armin Van Buuren's idea) to get myself more working space!

Here we go:

This is the thing I loved in Armin's studio. Now I can roll out a synth that I need, instead having silly amounts of rack units at my room

Yeah it is
I ran out of space and I had to compromise with my wife in order to get them all in

Networkacid: It cost around 200 euros with all the screws, metal plates and finishing oil. Not too bad for the looks of it

Btw, I'm making justice for the JD by selling it and I'm about to get Moss-expanded Triton-rack or EX5R to replace it. Loving the EX5 sounds tho.

Many powerful setups in this thread.

I have upgraded my setup with a new mixer Presonus 16.4.2 and am very happy with it. It has solved almost all the problems I have had with effects and recording. I know my monitors are not the best and I have reinforced the sound using the living room stereo, but now new monitors are underway. So far I've mostly been using headphones, so it's no big problem for me.

Slimmed down, went from a room full of keyboards to this. I'm really liking it everything I need right in front of me within reach.



Then there is the moog stuff for experiments

Nice setup. Exactly my style of a setup. Ergonomically friendly. A lot better than getting up and walking over to play a synth (or whatever).

I like minimalism

I tried to think how I would slim down your setup but couldn't figure out how to do it. Maybe I would switch the Minibrute to a small set of modular synth modules which would be used to expand the capabilities of the AnalogFour. But that would still be the same amount of gear.

All the Elektron boxes are exactly the same size (except for height), right?

Latest iteration of SOFA PRODUCTIONS ... Macbook Pro + Native Instruments' Maschine --> Novation X-Station25 --> IPad2/Alesis ioDock ...

The audio from MBP to X-Station is digital USB ... from X-Station to iPad (mostly running Auria) it is stereo 1/4" analog ...

What kind of routing are you using here (MIDI & Audio)?

Cool! Totally worth it. I recently spend about $500 on 3 matching 12U wooden rack units. Makes such a difference to the feel of the place. More organised and professional.

I really love your new setup man! It's gorgeous and there's something inspiring about the minimalism compared to how it used to be.

Really curious to know what racks you are using on the wall to fit so many large/heavy synths so conveniently like this! I would live to know what kind of slot wall things you have and especially what arms go with them that work so perfectly to hold synths. I am running out of horizontal space, but have lots of vertical space that is begging to be used, and my synths are outgrowing my studio! Pointers would be appreciated

Thanks man. I'm really proud of it (my last setup was in a muggy/dingy/dirty garage with too much storage, junk and other distractions outside of my control)

...a clean setup is a happier setup- helps in the inspiration department, easier to focus and get into the vibe

I have to ask - where did you get your furniture? I love the table, chairs and stand.

I've acquired these Standtastic wall mounted keyboard racks from a variety of sources including scrounging various arms from other stands I found online. They're very convenient and inexpensive, but hard to find - especially the rails. Here is the manufacturer's website: Standtastic - Wallmounts. If you can find the arms, I found a perfect substitute for the rails at Home Depot. (You can see the ones with the holes cut out in the left of the lower photo. They were silver and near the fencing section. I just drilled a couple of holes for mounting and painted them black.) Peace
