Our control room is the pride of Studio 3. Up front, we have a Macbook Pro with upgraded ram and storage. We monitor on Alesis Monitor 1's through a dedicated Alesis RA-100 power amp, and Yamaha HS50M's. Sitting on top of the desk sits a Custom Behringer BCF2000, with enhanced feel and slightly quiter faders than the stock versions. We play on a Semi-Weighted Axiom 49, or a Ensoniq SD-1. We have over 25 top-of-the-line synths, 23 virtual, and 2 hardware. As for a interface, we use a Tascam US-800, with 8ins and 6outs snaked to our live room.
The Live Room
Other studios show off their quantity. We talk about our quality.
Our live room has only a handful of amps, drums, keys, etc., but they are all top-of-the line. As for amps, we have a Legend Rock 50, which has vintage tubes and electronics, as well as a oak cabnet. It's a tone monster. Then we have a Marshall Lead 500 mini-stack, with a 8" on top, and a 12" in a oak cabnet on bottom, it's the most versatile amp we own. Then we have a Gemini II, one-hundred percent tube powered, from around 1965, its our oldest amp, but it still has killer tone for both bass and guitar. As for drums, we have electronic kit. The Yamaha DTXplorer has a midi line to the control room, where high quaily samples are mapped to the individual drum pads. For keys in the live room, we just use a midi controller, and in the control room we give it sound. For microphones, we have a MXL 880, several Shure SM57's, SM58's, and a Beta 58. Everything goes into a snake, where its sent to the control room.
