Tour of my home studio where I’ve recorded many albums! Albums are available at https://barkingaunts.bandcamp.com/ or visit the website https://www.solidrockbluesband.com/ for more information about the studio and music projects.
The studio is a “low budget” studio. This has been made possible by buying materials on sale, second hand and because of the fact a lot of the ‘gear’ you see here has been given to me for free! Apart from that, I’ve build the computer myself and use Open Source software (Linux based recording).

The mixers are both analog mixers, connected to the computer using a Behringer UCA interface. This is not by choice, I happened to have bought the Behringer mixer (on sale) before USB-audio got big and the SoundTech was given to me for free.They both have a true, great, vintage analog sound and great preamps for the (condenser) mic’s.
