The Rig and Gear

I record with Cubase Artist Pro 9 on an Intel Core i5-6500 desktop running Windows 10. I track through an Apollo Twin Duo USB and for guitars I use a Kemper Profiler.

For drums we can either do live drums tracked with Digital Reference DRDK Drum mics or we can go the digital route with Steven Slate Drums with tons of samples and plugins.

For vocals different styles call for different mics, I have a wide variety of microphones to make sure we get the best sound for your voice. The mics I use are:

  • Shure SM7B
  • Shure SM57
  • Sennheiser Evolution E609
  • Audio-Technica P48
  • AKG Perception 120 and 220

Guitars, just like vocals, also call for different equipment for different sounds. I welcome you to bring your own equipment because you know your sound, but feel free to use any of my guitars, which are:

  • 2010 Ibanez RGT2020 Prestige
  • Schecter Diamond Series Damien Elite - 7 String
  • LTD EC-1000
  • Epiphone Les Paul
  • Performing Artist Series GPCPA5 Acoustic-Electric Guitar

There is also a ton of gear that comes and goes through the studio which you are also more than welcome to use for your tracking needs.*
