Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday!!!
I'll admit that the usual suspects for Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday are a little bit too neat. Usually, the studios I put up here are on the clean side, which bodes ill for their actually being used at any point. Pictured above is the studio of a certain Jason [warning: soul-sapping Myspace login required to actually view the other pics] who has a workspace much more like what I myself spend every waking minute in.
A little trainspotting is in order, as there are some odd items in view. Up top is obviously a Modcan. Under that is a Moog 15 for the obligitory Moog Cred Factor. (I think anyone that owns and uses a Moog Synthesizer 15 has about topped out on Moog Cred, quite frankly. No need for anything else in that department.) To the right of that is an extra-super-rare Wavemakers KB modular. Info on the whole Wavemakers line is available here. To the left of the Moog is an oscillator of unknown marque, and left of that is what? Can't tell. A LinnDrum, some Roland boxes, and the omnipresent Mackie mixer round out the picture. (Moog, Modcan, and Mackie. Three great tastes that taste great together.)
I gotta say, this is the first HCGPF image that actually looks a little porny, what with the panelling and the lamp. Anyways, some tasties here: an incredibly rare Vako Orchestron (sort of like a non-toy Optigon), a Polymoog, and an RMI Keyboard Computer. I won't mention the theremin, as that is, without a doubt, my least favorite instrument of all time. I'd rather hear a 20-piece band composed entirely of sackbutts, bagpipes, and accordians than a single theremin, but that's just me.
Anyways, Jason has a bunch of cool kit, and the contemporary decor sets off the vintageness of it all nicely. Go hit up his Myspace page, but words to the wise: you can only look at the pictures after you've been vetted by the Myspace Data Miners. Don't say I didn't warn you.
