Basically I used to have 2 areas. One was the double Technics, Pioneer 909, one KRK RP8 monitor, a Macbook, and TS running via the Audio8 dj card. This whole thing was output into the other room, with my iMac running logic and output sound through a Toneport UX2 card. The whole mess recorded and output on a pair of RP8s with the KRK 10 subwoofer. That iMac generally stayed in the living room and played iTunes when not recording Dj sets. Over time we moved to a larger place and now I have the iMac on a table next to the turntable TS Pro setup, with all 3 KRK monitors in one spot. THe third speaker is still at right ear level 1 foot from teh tables, so monitoring is a breeze. I also have one big L setup, and until yesterday the Toneport and everthing was still configured as old ways. I have a padkontrol and a K25 that are swapped out for the larger keys when travel sessions come up. I added Maschine AND my Korg Zero 8 with Ableton 7 this past week or two, so there is a more recent shot that shows that. In the past I had to run my two machines and hardware synths/sampler into a behringer line mixer 12 channel, which sits under that sampler in some of the pics. As of this past day the zero 8 has eliminated the Behringer mixer, the Audio 8 dj is in a bag for now, and Maschine's controller has bypassed the Padkontrol. I put the 909 out of the way for now as I am trying to get this setup down to just one laptop, therefore eliminating that 20: iMac. I think for now it'll sit there with the toneport and I'll use that CPU and attached 2 tb worth of storage to record my audio. I dunno guys. It's an addiction. I move things around a lot. The shot with the piano, kore controller, and maschine all in the air by my hands is most recent. I'm trying to emulate the live environment so it's less of a transition when gigs arise. I routed everything into the line mixer, and ran that into the input of hte toneport. I output the Softsynth stuff from the iMac in Logic into the line input of that same mixer which allowed me to split the output between the monitors and/or the booth speaker (by the decks). I can then output software into booth while hearing all audio and recording ONLY the external stuff back into the iMac to the sequencer. It was all hardware based, but it worked. The limit was that I only had ONE input to the imac for 7 different audio signals. The firewire 5 stereo input cards were 500, so I saved up to just get the Zero 8 for a grand instead. here goes! The list is ongoing, but includes: MicroKorg Roland SH-32 Roland SP-555 Remote ZERO SL Roland A-37 Korg K25/Padkontrol Behringer 12 channel line mixer Maschine Kore 2 Logic 8/Live 7/Melodyne/Reason 4 Pioneer DJM 909, Mackie D2 w/firewire Technics 1210x2, Shure whitelabels KRK RP8 x3, RP10 Sub Audio 8 dj, Toneport UX2, Korg Zero 8 20' iMac 2.0 core duo, macbook 2.16 core 2 duo. Maybe more than you wanted to know, but it's fun to type all that out! (I smell a garage sale in my future). Adding the Zero and Maschine really turned a lot of my crazy routing into a bag of unnecessary stuff. wow.
