The name says it all! Discuss Steve's studios, your studios and gear set-ups, amps and effects here. This is not for discussing guitars (Steve's or otherwise).

I've got nothing compared to you guys. Here's what I have:

Two FP Jems
homemade guitar
Peavey Fury bass
Alesis SR-16 drum machine
Yamaha acoustic
Cry Baby wah
Alesis microverb
Yamaha 4-track
Sure SM57 mic
Cheap Yamaha keyboard
Peavey Express 112 amp
Roland vs1824 Digital Workstation.

That's pretty much it. It's just a hobby for me. That's more than enough considering The Beatles and Jimi's records sound just fine and they had just little 4-tracks. It's mostly the talent that matters(not that I have much of that).

Here is a song that I recorded using this gear:

Someone said they don't have anything compared to the others. Well, I have even less.

Guitar: Carvin DC135
I use the RPX400 listed below to lower the pitch of my guitar to record the bass.

Other Gear:

Digitech RPX400
Cakewalk ProTracks 2.2 (which came with the RPX400)

I also have a Crate G40C amp, but I don't use it. The RPX400 plugs directly into the computer and has amp modeling and all the effects I need. I often will add effects with the software as well. If I play into a mixer when I play live, I don't even need an amp because it has both 1/4 inch and XLR inputs and outputs, plus as I mentioned amp modeling and mic modeling. 8)

Can anyone else beat that pitiful studio? I only am doing this as a hobby right now. I just started last July. I record CDs and I hope to use them as background tracks to play live maybe starting next year. I have only 2 songs recorded right now, just started on my 3rd. Hope to finish it by Thanksgiving so I can play it for my parents when I go up to visit them.

Nah man, a studio is a place to get your artistic expressions and ideas out...

It's sort of like saying if you have the world's best canvas, and best paint brush and the most inspiring place to paint, it will make you the best painter. Which isn't true

Really once you get some decent recording gear, you'll really miss the simplicity of having your guitar and a tape recorder, or in your case a computer with a little fx processor.

Thanks for the kind words. :D I realize that. I don't think my studio is really pitiful. I am really a little proud of it. When I look at the pictures and descriptions of Steve's first recording studio, I feel good to join the ranks of the little studios with my "AMD Studio". :lol: I am actually kind of suprised with how good my recordings have been sounding. They don't sound as good as a professional recording, but they sound a lot better than some other unprofessional recordings I've heard in the past. I'm not putting the other recordings down, I am just surprised at how good ProTracks software with the Digitech RPX400 records. I was actually kind of joking. :lol: But, people often take my jokes seriously, so don't feel bad. 8)
