The studio (now lovingly called 'The Igloo') has been slowly built up since December 1998. It started out with the acquisition of a second computer (a 400MHz PII) in order to start playing out "mixed" tracker sets during the holy Modulo-2 days in 1998, mmm FastTracker II and Impulse Tracker....
Next came some a turntable, cd decks, then another turntable, then the real gear. First keyboard was a Korg Poly 800...which was mostly intended as a MIDI input keyboard, but got some neat bass samples and leads out of that thing (the joystick was also a pile o'fun).
After that was a rapid gathering of other outboard gear starting with the little Mackie 1202VLZ mixer, Juno 106, Roland JV1010 and a couple extra sound cards for MIDI ports.
After acquiring the sampler, I rarely used a tracker for anything (filters are a wonderful thing!). All my tunes were now based all on hardware, sequenced with Steinberg's software sequencer Cubase 5, mixed down with the 24 channel Mackie, and recorded onto a hard drive through the Echo Gina24.
Several years, and a several computers later, sequencing, production and mastering are now done almost exclusively digitally on the AMD64 box with Cubase SX4 and VSTi's. The main hardware synths regularly used are the Mono Evolver, Virus C, and the FR-777 linked through the Tacscam DM-24.
Live PA's (mostly acid techno) are performed off the 2.8GHz P4 Laptop with Abelton Live and Edirol's FA-101 audio interface. DJ Sets are now performed off the P4 lappy running Serato Scratch. Nothing like having your whole music library on your laptop!
