Photos of your set-up / studio

Postby gcoudert » Tue Apr 18, 2017 7:32 pm

Just trying to resurrect the missing thread. Nothing exciting about my current one, though. The X8 has been in its flight case for about 7 weeks now so I'm using this minimal set-up in the conservatory. I gave up my home studio space so that my son could have some work/revision space and I don't have as much time for music as I used to.

Ca 30% non-standard and non-stock equipment. ;)

the extra row red LEDs on the mixing consoles indicate the noise gate status. illuminated means that it is active/closed.
Image
Plenty of rack space. A custom rack furniture and desk. Behind the desk down below is a BRIG 001 equalizer.
Image
The loudspeakers are modified 3-way active ones SEMF mkII for which has active crossover and 6 amplifiers with 200+50+40W power amplifier for each speaker.

That's an old keyboard there! And I'm actually talking about the PC-keyboard! I mean... it has no Windows-keys, so it's kind of old. ^_^

Yes! It is my favourite keyboard of all time since it came out (1994 year KeyTronic) and I have 3 of these , but I could not afford that on that time and I got some years later. The windows keys are really useless as they are idearipoff from apple. Besides I like the feel of that keyboard and how are its rubber membranes. Behind that keyboard I have 4 PC machines with its multipc controller hooked. I have also from quite similar age another Logitech mouse.

There's two DIY synths to be seen - a TTSH (left) and my first build, a "MFOS Sound Lab Mini Synth Plus" ("Mini"? really? :lol: ) on the right. The burgundy red one, that is.

I have no idea :dontknow: , I haven't changed anything. They are displayed on my computer just as they should, and enlarge when I click on them.

These loudspeakers are one year work which I call SEMF 989 mkII.
Basically it is a ESTONIA-021-1 loudspeaker box, but I swapped out those 30 year old elements and its passive crossover.
Now it is with Visaton, Daytona and HiWi drivers in it and so it has nothing to do with the original design. The original passive filter is removed and substituted with active crossover, compensation circuits and 6 amplifiers (in a separate enclosures outside loudspeaker).


So they look if they are original ones.

It had also certain design flaws which were on that time due to the limits and knowledge. Like these sharp corners.
The bass driver to me looks really cool, unfortunately it is just 100W driver, has a way higher free air resonance frequency and could not tolerate 200W within acceptable distortion limits.
HOwever the midrange and tweeters quality is just as they were back then during 90s. Now almost everything is better than those elements.

crystalmsc pictures I see, but again TheKeytarist and Weirdofromouterspace is not visible with pictures.
