Home Studio Registry: Sonny Parlin

Future plans/projects

We will continue to upgrade equipment in the studio and continue to record Project Finster CDs. I'm also planning on taking some recording courses at Trod-Nossel Studios.


4 Yamaha Pacificas, Ibanez RG-470 and a Ibanez PGM 30.


Yamaha (something or other) used only as a trigger for sounds on the computer...

Sound modules

Currently we use Sound Fonts with the SBLive card, but I recently upgraded to the Delta 66 24/96 card, so I will also be upgrading to GigaSampler for midi sounds.


Drums are all MIDI...


For guitars and bass, we use the guitar and bass pods. Also use Toneworks AX-1G and an RP-6


We have one MIC, an SM57, used primarily for micing acoustic guitars, etc...


N/A Will be getting one in the future.

Tape decks

N/A - We mix directly from Cakewalk to wav files to CD.

Hard disk recorders



Right now, we're using some really good computer speakers but plan on getting studio monitors very soon.


HP Pav, Intel Celeron 667MHZ, 128MB RAM, 20GB IDE disk drive.

Music software

Cakewalk, T-RackS 24, CoolEdit, GoldWave and soon GigaSampler, Delta-66 sound card.

Additional notes

The first Project Finster CD was recorded at 16 bit 44Khz, now that we have upgraded our hardware, we are looking forward to recording at 24bit 48khz.
