Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday!!!
For a change of pace, I thought I'd show a smaller home studio that was actually obtainable, rather than some multi-million dollar Fiesta Del Gear. The tasteful rig above belongs to Matthew Stretta, and is a good example of a well-thought-out collection of analog and digital synths that will get you pretty much any sound you might need.
The first thing to note is that he has two of the Holy Trinity, the Prophet 5 and the Memorymoog. A Voyager holds pride of place, obviously, and the excellent Kurzweil is doing controller duties, it would seem. In the rack to the left, he's got a Focusrite stereo input strip, an Ensoniq DP4 (I tend to look suspiciously at these, but some people swear they have mojo, so I'll let it slide), a Blacet rack with a Wiard joystick, the breakouts for the Voyager, six racks of Euro modules, two Frostwave Fat controllers, and a Moogerfooger.
Since this is such a good collection of sound-generating devices, I'll pointedly ignore that little grey mixer next to the Voyager, or whatever the hell that black plastic synth is on top. But just because there's room for improvement is no reason to go jumping all around. This is a good rig, and anyone would be proud of it. More pics of the rest of his room at his site.
