Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday!!!

Okay, refresh monkeys. Your fix is here. I'm on a roll with the synth-centric HCGP entries. Whack the picture above for the full-size view of the private studio of a certain Mr. Rich. I have no more information than that. I don't know where this studio is, or the actual name of the person that owns it. He's a moderator on the Vintage Synth Explorer forums, and he posted a dozen or so images of his studio in this thread.


He has all the heavies: a DX1, an Obie 8-voice, PPG 2.3, Hartman Neuron. In short, these pictures are going to make you insanely jealous. The ubiquitous clear Gleeman Pentaphonic (only like, um, 2300 made, from the frequency of occurance), but the biggest deal for me is that this is the first studio we've featured that, to my knowledge, has all three of the Holy Trinity. If you examine the photos, yes, Virginia, you'll see a Prophet 5, a Memorymoog, and a Jupiter 8. (Plus a bonus Holy keyboard, a Matrix 12!) There's no single clear shot of the whole room(s) so it's hard to tell what's going on. But suffice to say, this would be a fun place to hang out.

It is NOT Richard D. James - the truth is not that fascinating really...

The truth is _always_ fascinating! "Mr Rich" is, in actuality, David C. Lovelace - all-around good guy, and progenitor of the famous "Packrat" comics and the infamous "Retarded Animal Babies" flash cartoons...

Carbon111: Actually he is NOT David C. Lovelace, David is also a good guy and also lurking around sometimes at VSE, but he has nothing to do with David. As I said - the truth is not that fascinating really.

I was gonna concur on that. I'm of the distinct impression that Mr. Lovelace is a modular dude, and this Mr. Rich fellow leads a more-or-less modular-free existence. My guess is that it is the writing room at a commercial studio. Jingles, perhaps?
