M-Audio BX8s and an M-Audio SBX10 Subwoofer – I’ve had these monitors since 2011, so I really feel confident with what I’m hearing through them. Although I reference through different mediums when mixing, the BX8s really provide a flat frequency response that is true to the source material.
Analogue Solutions Telemark – The Telemark was my first step into analog synthesis and a big one at that. It was a lot to wrap my head around at first, but I’m slowly starting to tame it as time goes on. My hope is to eventually build a eurorack system that I can incorporate the Telemark into.
Analogue Solutions Europa Sequencer – Purchased the Europa alongside the Telemark to run external tempo clock to the Telemark.
Moog Voyager Electric Blue – Hands down my favorite piece of gear so far. While monophonic, the Voyager proves to be very versatile in its sound design capability. I tend to use it for bass sounds, but you can get really creative with your routing to come up with great leads or wild sound effects.
Ableton Push – My main midi controller. Seamless connectivity with Ableton Live allows for lots of inspiration when working on music.
Novation Launchkey 25 – Standard USB midi keyboard
Universal Audio Apollo Twin – Two mic/line preamps, two line outputs, Hi-Z input and headphone output and real-time UAD plugin processing, perfect for a mobile set up.
Universal Audio Apollo 16 Mkii – 16 channel interface with A/D conversion and real-time UAD plugin processing
Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 (2)
Audient asp880 – Using the same preamps as the ASP8024 that I worked on through college, I knew what to expect when purchasing this preamp. The variable impedance switches are a great feature and provide a high level of versatility. I typically have my drums running through this preamp, but will free up a channel to run a vocalist without hesitation. I hope to soon expand my tracking capabilities with a second asp880 to utilize all 16 channels of my Apollo 16.
