My music cave

Post by Pvgeldrop » Fri Feb 15, 2019 5:24 am

When we searched for a new place to live two years ago, one of the main criteria was a large room I could use as a studio. Happily, the place we have now has just that! Largest bedroom in the house, well isolated and, even better, no neighbours. Anywhere. Ever.

Pretty simple setup all in all, but perfect for what I do; using a few terabytes of VI's, I work primarily from Sibelius, occassionally doing some light mixing and mastering in Cubase Artist. A small M-Audio Keystation 49 at my right hand for quick fiddling around, my old Roland HP101e for when I want to relax and play piano. Not in the picture is a cardoid microphone for the occassional voice-over. Recently replaced my trusty old ESI Maya 44XTe for a MOTU Ultralite MK4, which was a good choice!

My digital gear of choice: EastWest Hollywood Diamond/Platinum libraries, Sibelius Ultimate, VirHarmonic Voices of Prague/Soloists of Prague/Boys Choir, Cubase Artist 9 and a selection of Waves plugins for mixing/mastering.
My physical helpers: a collection of books on music theory, harmony, counterpoint, orchestration and other theoretical stuff.

My wife is forbidden from entering the room when the door is closed. It's a good deal, as I don't like being interrupted while working. ;)

Nice, clean, streamlined space! I'm my worst enemy when it comes to clutter. You seem to have that mastered.

Well done!
...forgive me child if I do not know; where we came from or where we go. I always thought that I'd know more, but I've never been through this life before.

Very minimal and organized. Less is definitely more sometimes.
