Okay I can't resist the temptation to post a pic or two, but the studio is always changing. Every time I do a gig or run live sound for some bands the whole layout of the studio changes. Sorry for the poor quality photos. My last phone didn't do well indoors.

Wow - lots of lovely toys. Interesting to see a lot of pedals. I'm taking the view that cow I'm quite well sorted for pedals and amps that I like the sound of, I don't think I'm going to bother with amp apps etc.

Odd drum setup. Why not a Roland TD3 or something? To each his own. Do you trigger an app with that, or use the on board sounds?

I do have a TD-9 brain that I plan to use on a stealth e-kit I'm building. I am trying out different drum apps to see which one's react quickly and are bulletproof enough for live use. Sampletank, Thumbjam, DM-1 etc.

If I have to go ITB for guitar I have several options that are satisfactory like JamUp and Tonestack. Also happy with Saturn and Timless 2 in conjunction with a convolution reverb or two.

And Bob I must admit that a lot of this gear is bought "used" for ridiculously low prices. Like the HPD-15 for $500 off of eBay with a stand and gig case. I get lucky and I'm in the right place at the right time a lot too.

Wow. Very smart! Have you properly matched the acoustic characteristics of the pot plants? :lol:

Update June 2016: Current set up with Mackie monitors, Tascam US2x2 interface, ART Tube MP and iPad Air 2 64GB. Streamlined from previous setups.

Original post: My latest setup, being the fifth I've had since I started recording in 1993, is appropriately named Studio V (genius, I know...). My setups have always been mainly for recording demos for my songs. I prefer that instead of a simple piano/vocal or acoustic guitar/vocal demo that my demos are as close as possible to the finished idea I hear in my head. Plus, if the demo really kicks ass, and is recorded well, it can be the finished song then no problem.

I started with a Tascam 424 4 track cassette PortaStudio which I used for a few years and kept sounding decent by doing external bounces to my DAT machine and then putting that on a fresh tape. After that around '98 I then moved on to Tascam's last great analog PortaStudio, the 488 mkII 8 track cassette multitrack recorder. Now putting 8 tracks on a cassettes 1/8 inch width was an engineering marvel, but it was understandable if many believed it wouldn't sound very good. The Tascam 688 8 track MIDI PortaStudio released months before with close to the same technology showed that indeed these machines could sound quite good.

Tascam even touted that the 488 mkII had better frequency response, wow and flutter and headroom specs than the first Ampex and 3M 8 track machines released in the late 1960's. Hyperbole or not, if you recorded hot levels, didn't do internal bounces and kept arrangements clean the 488 mkII made great sounding analog recordings. I added a picture of the last setup with the analog PortaStudio stuff below.

I worked at project studios in the 1990's that had multiple ADATs and Mackie mixer set ups and later into the early 2000's Cubase & ProTools DAW setups but didn't have a digital home studio setup of my own until around 2004. I just had a PC and a light edition of ProTools with a m-audio interface and a few mics. Real simple and worked okay, but I missed the tactile feel of faders, buttons, etc. and I think everyone has a soft spot for their first recording tools and processes. I used the PC DAW off and on until recently, and admit to not doing a lot of recording over that time.

Which brings me to the present, and apologies for the blowhard exposition, just wanted to get across some context. I got a surprise from the wife early this year, an iPad Air 2 64GB WiFi, which was totally unexpected especially because I've been an Android smartphone user since they first came out. I really never wanted any Apple devices and aside from the iPod nano my wife had we had no others in the house.

It didn't take me long to discover that the Apple music making apps were light years away from the Android selection. I spent days and days researching apps, reading reviews and spending way too much dough on the App store. Of course after the guitar amp modelers and drum machines the app that completely blew me away was Auria. The feature set, the great looking inteface , the value/bang for the buck, etc... The thing that really got me was that the mouse/keyboard feel of a traditional DAW was gone and a more tactile, "analog" style "hands on" touch screen interface brought me back to the early days of PortaStudio recording.

My setup is very simple: Tascam US2x2 interface into the iPad with the Lightning to USB CCK, ART Tube MP for mic pre, Yamaha small MG10c input analog mixer for occasional submixing of sources (say micing a whole drum kit or bringing in more than two mics/inputs that the interface can handle), using the mixers Aux sends adding outboard effects from the DigiTech Studio Quad V2 multi-effects processor, AT 2020 condenser mic, Shure SM57's, a Novation Launchkey 25 MIDI controller and a couple pairs of Sony MDR-7506 headphones.

This is the most fun I've had recording since the times of my old PortaStudio setups. Recording with Auria is immediate, the sound quality is phenomenal and it is extremely powerful, very much a portable pro level DAW.
Thanks to the developers and the community here on the forum, in the short time I've been using Auria the people here have been informative and very cool.

I miss my old Portastudio. We actually did take it everywhere. Rehearsal, live, out in the park. Those were good days.

I had the Fostex X-15, still do but channel 3 is kaput now. Same here, took it everywhere. The closed stairwells in the condo I was in had great reverb! And since nobody used them it was quiet too...
