My humble studio, which I recently set up with a lot of my fiancé's help. It's certainly come a long way off from where I began. And yes, it's another bedroom studio, but I like it a lot.

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.

Moved my monitors around and had a general tidy up. Stacking the "27 ASUS Monitor ontop of some wooden boxes taped together, the middle monitor is a Dell S2240T (Touchscreen) and the AOC IPS Panel on the right I'm probably going to sell to get another Dell S2240T. This setup lets me angle my ADAM A5X's abit better so the projected sound hits me just right at head level at a good angle for monitoring.

It's quite nice having touch screen(s). They work surprisingly well in FL Studio and most other 3rd party applications. One moment I can dive in the mixture and adjust it with my fingers and the next I'm adjusting sliders and Effects within Omnisphere or Gladiator and then I can dive into Audition CC and spectral edit samples with ease.

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.

Apologies for the shit shot, need a better camera.
Just moved my rig & desk to the other side of the room and Tiled the wall up. Thought I'd rock with the ADAM A5X's Horizontally for a change as well.

glorious budget dampening haha

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.

Your monitors are too close together.

Nope.

They are the ideal distance away from each other and angled appropriately.
There is no set rule for all speakers but there are recommended best practices for nearfields and midfields.

The ADAM's in the AX series (I have the A5X's in the picture) are designed as nearfields and as long as you are following 'The Stereo Triangle' at head level (which I am in both parts) then it's fine. The general rule-of-thumb for most is around a 3-5ft spread boundary for nearfield Monitoring (although there are exceptions to some certain models which is where I'd say consult the manual or manufacturer if unsure). The distance between the two I have is sitting around 3.5ft angled from Tweeter to Tweeter and 3.7ft angled from Cone to Cone and it gets the job done for me.

I have tried them beyond 5ft angled and it becomes difficult to figure out what's going on in the Center part of a track's Stereo Image. I've tried them closer than 3ft as well and it becomes difficult to work with the sides of the Stereo Image.

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.

Are you feeling decidedly sour today Mr FurryGod?

Sleepwalking into a thread at who-knows-what-time AM and misreading it doesn't = total ignorance. I am fully aware of what time sigs are thank you.

With your "Your monitors are too close together" statement, when I gave my answer is it really that hard to just give a stated reason why you agree/disagree instead of trying to take a desperate dig? Did I 'wrong' you deep down inside?

I am intrigued with this part though:

and your response doesn't surprise me

Not surprising how? Not surprising that I don't just give you a one/two sentence generic response? Not surprising as I repeatedly disagree with your stated opinions on whatever response I directly respond to you with?

Really now. If you are going to give me a thinly-veiled shitty answer to a perfectly insult-free statement, then don't be surprised if you get a counter-shitty response back.

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

Yes, I do care as they are set up correctly as well in the picture within the optimal distance as those nearfields are designed to be. Just like mine. Or do you have a better suggested rule-of-thumb practice which would suggest that the 1ft extra distance between his and mine make a direly critical difference? Christ, if you want to get reallllllly critical about it, I could just point out that he needs to adjust his damn chair upwards so he's Mastering at the optimal head level in that picture, regardless of angle or distance.

There's a few video's kicking around of people trying it out. You can theoretically do it with anything as long as it's the last thing in the signal chain.
