  • To me a well balanced set up based on simplicity. 88 hammers keyboard below. I9 12 threads 64 GB RAM 6 TB SSD. Tried the Palette Gear, but after numerous problems I returned to the old workhorse for CC.s. Have now configured my Reaper DAW to fit my way of working in every detail. Now there´s really no excuse:)

  • I built the desk, with drawer-slide piano tray. But lately I put the macbook and display monitor on stilts, so I can work standing. Mostly.

    When we move to a new house (later this year) I'll get a Jarvis standing/sitting desk. I hope to have a better room for a studio.

    Oh yeah, gear: a bunch of guitars, amps, pre-amps, keyboard controllers, violins, microphones and so on. Some nice stuff, some cheap crap.
