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).

– Behringer Eurorack (6 Channel mixer)
– SkyTech “Karaoke” PA-system (monitoring, listening)
– Behringer UCA222 Interface (Mixer to Computer)

DAW (Software)
– Linux (KXStudio distribution)

Microphones

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.
