The tower on the lower right is a Cooler Master, my fiancé's old computer, which he built. It's got 4GB RAM, DDR2 (upgradable to 16) and 250GB HDD space I can play with. My processor is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ (3GHz). I could've used more HDD space, but other HDDs I have.... well they've prevented the PC from booting up. I think it sufficient.

I'm back on Windows 7, but 64-bit this time. Mic and MIDI keyboard are both Samson (Go and Graphite M32 respectively), speakers are Creative I-Trigue (2.1). They're about 5 years old, but still in perfect working order. I can now hear my mixing errors, where I previously couldn't.

I also recently acquired a nice pair of headphones. Specifically, Sennheiser HD201.

It may come across as depressing to some that my NGADM audition, Chant de l'Éveil, was done on a rickety, eight-year-old Acer laptop with a Celeron processor and broken screen hinges and missing keys.... I'm just grateful for this pleasant change of phase.

I'd say your studio has certainly had a much-needed upgrade from your previous setup (which also was an improvement from, well... your phone :P).

What I'm especially of is seeing you happy and in a much better situation than you've been in the past year or so. Feels good to see! :)

I'm just using this for voice acting, and it has landed me 2 paid jobs.
It basically prevents noise from bouncing around my apartment, it isn't a sound proofing solition, but it does a decent job preventing reverb from my walls, desk, etc.

Here's mine (again). I recently had to give up my M-Audio Keystation, so I'm using a crappy Casio student keyboard until I get a new controller. Also, crap speakers, placed in crap position. A bigger desk will be on my Christmas list as well.

Ghetto set-up, working on this.

I can't wait until I've reached my over-kill rig budget, because getting by with these specs is so tedious & tricky. I can only work on something up to a certain complexity before lag makes it impossible to listen to projects in real time, so it slows progression right down having to publish to MP3, just to hear changes.

Right now I have to make tracks without too many complicated channels or filters (pictured), otherwise it's just not going to work.

It may not be much but it works for me :D
I have the keyboard hooked up to a midi controller, so I can play and record a full piano part if I wanted :P
It's plain and simple, it works for me.

I have 4.5 pianos. Just too lazy to throw out the ones I'm not using anymore but also useful if anyone ever wants to come by and jam together.

Nope.
There have been others in this thread who shown to have their nearfields even closer together than mine and get on with it well enough.

I'm sure there are, and your response doesn't surprise me since you don't even know what time sigs are.

But anyway, here's an example pic of how they should be, not that you would care.

I'm a little better than you. A laptop.

(though I still have the Casio keyboard somewhere in my parents' house)

#SoundTreatmentProjectYay

So I finally collected enough cup holders A.K.A. cheap sound reflectors, and I've ordered a bunch of Auralex. I haven't really had the time or will power to take pics (dealing with a back injury), but here's the first of the before pics.

I had two desks in the room. One set up for gaming / entertainment, and the other set up for music production. Needless to say, 3 desks without much space management clogs up valuable floor space.

The wall on the right side was easiest, although in the future when the budget allows, I'll take down the cup holders and get proper panels.

Does that actually work well? Are they glued?

From one low-budget recordist to another: If you require more absorption/dampening in the future, I wouldn't spend the extra money on auralex. Any foam with a similar depth and density (2-4", 1.5-1.7 pcf) will do the same thing. Valuable little tidbit I heard in a lecture that John Storyk gave at MTSU back in '06 or so.

Back to thread: my current space.

I'm no longer hearing reflections as much from that wall. I used tiny little finishing pins. I tried poster putty but it didn't work well wiht rough cardboards for some reason. Maybe because it was quite dusty.

Studio? What's a Studio?

All I have is a desktop, monitor, speakers I never use because they're £60, a wireless microsoft mouse(screw me, right?) and and M Audio Axiom 61 Semi Weight MIDI Keyboard which I barely use. Everything comes from my mind. Spooooooooky.
