Haha thanks.. yeah I have a lot of patch points with my Eurorack and MS20 and like to create huge patches!

Nice setups all.. am I right in thinking that newgrounds artists are more 'in the box' types?

I would think a lot of us are, with Newgrounds being so accessable to indie artists. I'm sure there are people here with setups to put us all to shame.

I used to have a in the box studio but I couldn't get the sound I wanted, so i pawned it all off.

Out of the box studios are more expensive i dont have that kind of money yet

So I just use A Mac Pro with Logic X with various AU plugins , a Vinyl ripper, and some cheap headphones

Does Abelton ever crash on you? Sometimes when I load a certain plugin Logic will crash but X has a new autosave feature which is neat

Huh, I somehow expected that everyone on NG has a setup similar to mine. Then again, I can't even play an instrument...

My studio just now, no longer set up for audio production though. I'm mostly doing videography and photography stuff these days.

EDIT: I know there's an old "Instruments" thread, but I think it's pretty much dead. Let's make this the official "Studio Pics Thread" mmmkay?

Here's my synth corner + newly built electronics workbench. The synth furthers to the back (on the workbench) is my perpetually-WiP DIY modular synthesizer.

Also @Rennh that's creepy
