2 lcd's, rack-mount custom pc, adam a7's, nocturn, apc40, 49 midi keys, some acoustic treatment & software.
Cat's in there too.
I like the desk: how it slides the music keyboard under the computer keyboard. Is it something from Ikea, or ?

Yes it is Ikea, Galant iirc. It's modular, so you can keep adding to it.
But i had to modify that keyboard sliding shelf, make it lower, because it was meant for the pc keyboard and didn't have enough height.
Works great like this.

Highly recommend the Avantones. Essential in my opinion. They keep my feet on the ground! (mix wise)

Great setup Rave! I'm thinking about buying a Euphoinx and I was wondering if you ever try using it with Ableton, or if you use it with another program? I've heard there are problems with it running with Live, and unfortuantly I don't have the room for a Mackie COntrol. I was even considering using the Euphoinx with Logic if that's what I need to do, but I really need a hi-end mixing surface for mixing. So I'm still not sure what to go with.

Thanks. The Euphonix works with live but it is limited to just the faders, pans and transport. Ideally you need a DAW with EUCON support like Cubase, Logic , PT etc... I have cubase too. A lot of people mix their projects in another DAW any how so your options are open :)

is that why you didn't get the MCControl and just opted for more faders? congrats on the new setup.. that I7 puts my macpro to shame!!

Benchmark using 8.1.5 = 10%. I am chuffed to bits with this result. I am can jam happily at low latencies now. Good times :mrgreen:

Wow, you are very lucky to have that gear at such a tender age. Nice one :)
