Just realised ive never filled this out, so here goes
i make music of all sorts, from electroacoustic stuff to guitar indie pop type stuff, dependent on whatever mood im in that day.
im currently finishing off a masters in music technology (3 weeks to finish thesis eeek!).
Guitar and keys would be my main instruments, though lately i've been playing a lot of bass. I play in a couple of different bands, covers and original stuff, though im trying to get out of the covers/pubrock/weddings thing, its been a neccesary evil for the last 2 years while in college. Nothing against playing covers that i actually like though
Have recorded an EP for a friends band and can't wait to do more of that kinda stuff when im finished college. Also teach music at weekends.
My gear is as follows:
Computer - Dell Inspiron 9300, Intel Centrino 2.13ghz, 2gb ram, 500gb iomega hardrive for audio.
Interface - Presonus Firepod
Monitors - Alesis M1 620s
Headphones - Sennheiser HD25
Midi stuff - M-audio Radium 61 key controller and Korg padKontrol
Keyboards/Synths - Microkorg and a slightly battered but still beautiful Wurlitzer 200A Electric Piano(oh yeh
Piano - Yamaha U-2
Guitars - US Strat, Mex Tele, Mex P-Bass (All Fender), Epiphone ES-335 and Martin DX1 acoustic.
Amps - Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb and Marshall JCM900 Stack
Effects Pedals - Ibanez TS808, MXR Distortion+, Boss SD-1 (overdrive), US Big Muff, MXR Dynacomp, MXR Phase 90, Boss DD-6 Delay, Boss TU-2 Tuner
Mics - What else but a trusty sm57 and its trusty friend the trusty sm58
Software - Cubase SX3, Max/MSP, Ableton Live 6, Kontakt, Battery, B4, Elektrik Piano, Waves Renaissance Bundle, loads of free plug-ins.
Think thats it!
Shopping list - a decent condenser (or 7
), hopefully starting with an AKG C414 my mate is flogging if i get the cash together before he sells it. A decent stage keyboard/piano. A better interface (rme ff800 ideally), some nice preamps and other decent outboard gear. So the next €5,000 that randomly appears in a puff of spoke should cover that lot
