HAHAHA! They have their own logo on the wall. Looks more like a Jamiroquai museum
Moog LP + Casio SK1 and MT-75 + tube amp = good tone.

great idea for a topic HH, i particularly found massive attack's setup interestingly homey, and jamiroquai's setup interestingly small.

also did anyone else notice kid 606's setup has no 606?

Alan Wilder (Recoil)

on his site, the image is a image map and will zoom in on the gear, etc.
http://www.recoil.co.uk/thethinline/

note the obie rack/2-voice sem, midimoog, ems vcs3, and supernova (supernova kinda suprised me) ;)

in one issue of sound-on-sound there is a large interview with Daniel Miller that shows all the 'mute studio' gear that a billion artists have used over the years and a bunch of his analogue gear+sequencers, but the online version doesnt have the images and I don't have a scanner.. would like to find some copies of that

There are quite a few interesting shots of Klaus Schulze's studio referenced here:

I thought this one was particularly interesting for example -- big DAW screen!

This is actually their current live rig (as used at The Big Chill last weekend :) ). I saw some tweaking on the Macbeth (at the back), and actually heard something change (was bloody loud and it was a pretty dense mix). Good to see someone not using just laptops.

Anyone who have seen studio pics with Boris Blanks of Yello? I was searching around but did´nt find any. I think I´ve seen at least one pic with him sitting with his Fairlight.

Btw, the japanese musician there is Kitaro, not Koto.

This photo was taken during TD's European live tour back in Oct/Nov 1980, it's not a studio shot.

The photo is quite a good example of how Froese and Schmoelling switched gear between them
from one concert to another. Here Froese is using the Projekt Elekronik modular, PPG 340/380 and OB-X (it was his synth),
while Schmoelling can be seen with a Prophet 5 rev 2, Polymoog, Minimoog and, behind him, Froese's Moog rack.

*Yes I'm purposely ignoring all the other uber-mega-synths... they go without saying ;)

The above studio shot of Chris Franke's studio dates from about 1984, not '82.
