It's been threatened, so here it is. The Home Studio Porn thread. Gratuitous pics of your home recording studio please!

Attached Image: monthly_07_2013/post-15523-0-35318300-1373296796.jpg

That's mine which consists of:

My PC (the huge black tower on the bottom right)
A cheap desk from Argos
A pair of Tannoy E11 speakers, custom wired and shielded
Which are plugged into a Rotel RA-930-AX amp (which plugs into a Soundblaster X-fi soundcard)
M-Audio Studiophile BX5a Deluxe monitors
Which are plugged into a Guitar Rig Session I/O
As are my Superlux HD662F monitor headphones
And I have an M-audio Keyrig 49 midi keyboard

No acoustic treatment as yet, the desk is at a funny angle in the corner under advice from 51m0n to help with stereo phasing issues.

looks good, are those other speakers that the Tannoy's are on it get the right height? I am having same trouble I have stands for my monitors but they are not high enough so i have to put them on boxes at the moment but my biggest problem is having a good room to set up in

My Tannoys are on the bottom with the M-audio's on top. I've got some isolation pads in between them and the Tannoys sit on a thin bit of rubber insulation too. I've no idea if it's overly detrimental or not to be honest. But with my desk in the corner now I should be able to get some proper stands for my monitors so the M-audios will sit behind and above the Tannoys. The M-audios are slightly above head height but point down directly at me so I think they're fine in that regard.

yeah good little setup for writing music... I think its its easy to get carried away with top end expensive gear when its not required especially for writing, but for mixing (not that i'm any good at it) I think the proper room and good monitors is more essential. I will post my set up this evening after i have re-arranged / cleaned it up a bit haha! hopefully finish my composition for the July competition this evening :D

Sorry for the atrocious picture and the mess, i'll take a better one when i have it set up again, but here's my very cheap and very mediocre setup. Lexicon Alpha into a £150 Zoostorm pile of cr*p running Win7 and Reaper. Using my old Phillips Hifi as DIY monitors along with a pair of Logitech headphones. The tablet is there to act as a midi controller once i get the app running properly.

We bought a zoostorm at work on a whim to run a couple of massive printers and RIP software, we figured if it died, then it died, it's been really good. Not a single problem in the year and a half we've been using it, and cheap as all cheapness too.
Don't diss the zoostorm.

Not got a problem with Zoostorm (Except my dads netbook dying) just i want something faster and more robust, and with multiple monitors.

Oh yeah, we bought one of them mini ones as well, no PCI card inputs, annoying. Not very customisable really. Shame. Cheap though :)
