Future plans/projects

This is a personal project studio, but it is also used for commercial demo production.


Fender Stratocaster, Gibson Les Paul Standard Flame-top, Yamaha 6-string acoustic, Yamaha 12-string acoustic, Yamaha nylon-string classical, Keilani soprano ukulele (purchased while in Hawaii), Fender Precision Bass.


Yamaha DJX (first version)

Sound modules

Virtual Sound Canvas DXI, Dream Station DXI, Triangle II DXI, Cakewalk Sound Center, Studio Instruments Drums, Roland TTS-1, and IKMultimedia̢��_� Amplitube��� X-GEAR (Soft Synths)


Alesis SR-16


Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100 Mic Preamp, Korg AX-1G, Boss Flanger and Noise Gate, Furman Dual 15-Band Graphic EQ, Alesis Nano-Compressor, ART MR-1 Reverb, DOD Stereo Bass Chorus, E-Bow, ART Cable Cop.


Audio-Technica XM-4 Dynamic, MXL 990 Condenser, Shure 565 Dynamic, Nady CM-02S Stereo Condenser, and an Audio-Technica lavaliere Omni Condenser. I clip the latter into the sound hole of the nylon string guitar and the ukulele -- it̢��‰�s absolutely brilliant! I also use a Dean Markley Pro-Mag pickup for the steel string acoustic guitars in addition to the MXL 990.


I use a Behringer Eurorack MX602A mixer to bring (SR-16) drum tracks into a Behringer Xenyx 1204FX-USB which connects directly to the computer. The Xenyx also supplies 48 volt phantom power to the MXL 990.
