Incidentally, remember to clean your place before you redesign it. You can discover some cleaning administrations here.

I simply love the vintage stylistic layout!

Old paint, pastel hues, backdrop, huge amounts of capacity thoughts and those stunning boxes where you can store fragrant cleansers, shower salts and your shoes close to the front entryway.

Going vintage is probably the best strategy to switch something up in your home and in each room!

At the right is a Mackie 32-channel board on a home-built desk, with a Behringer 16 channel board above it. The Beringer is used to mix the output of the multitrack into a stereo pair, then route it into the Mackie. While the Mackie can switch any number of channels into tape-in mode, when you do so, you can’t use the channels for anything else; since a lot of what I do is play over material I’ve already laid down, that’s not very convenient. Hence the auxiliary mixer.

All the Mackie’s channels are dedicated to something, usually in pairs. 1/2: floor bass processor. 3/4: floor guitar processor. 5/6: Drum kit. 7/8: rack bass processor. 9/10: rack guitar processor. 11/12: Roland drum machine. 13: Bass output from Roland. 14: Bass output from Kawai. 15/16: Kawai band-in-a-box. 17/18: AM/FM tuner. 19/20/21/22: Vocalist harmony outputs. 23: Wired vocal mic. 24/25: Jamstation. 26/27: Behringer mixer. 28/29: Keyboard. 30/31: 2 GB, dual-core Intel Mac. 32 is the rack mic system. The cassette deck comes back into the Mackie’s 2-track inputs, and the main outs go to the amp rack. The 8-buss outs go right to the Fostex 24-track recorder (which is limited to recording 8 tracks at once, anyway, though it can play back all 24 simultaneously.)

There are three equipment racks; one is recording gear, one is effects, and one is amplification.

At the top left is the 8U amp rack. Top to bottom, there is a power distribution/filtering unit, a 24-bit crossover, power amp for mid/high, poweramp for the subs, and an EQ. Mids are handled by a pair of 10" driver and horn cabinets, sub by a dual-12" Fender bassman cabinet. 200 watts RMS to the sub, 50 watts RMS to each of the mid/highs. Audio comes from the main outs of the Mackie, into the EQ, then the crossover, which feeds the sub and mid/high amps.

Below that is the 16U FX rack. Top to bottom, power distribution/filtering, Digitech’s Vocalist voice harmony system, a guitar / bass tuner, a two channel compressor / expander, a sub-bass and harmonic enhancer, an EQ, an SGX bass FX / preamp unit, GSP-21 guitar FX / preamp unit, Digitech IPS-33 guitar harmony generator, and a DBX RF mic unit with enhancement FX. Underneath the rack units, you can just see a Roland drum machine.

The right 16U rack is the recording gear, top to bottom, power distribution / filtering, power supply for the Mackie board, Nikko tuner, Fostek 24-track digital HD recorder, Tascam 2-track cassette recorder, Vestax 6-track cassette recorder.

Elsewhere are a Jamstation, a Kawai band in a box, a fender twin, a Behringer twin, a GNX-3 guitar FX floor unit, and a Digitech bass pedal.

Seven guitars, two basses, a drum kit, various mikes and a 61-key keyboard round out the studio.

I have a vintage Gibson Les Paul and a Fender Strat. Neither really suits me; the Strat’s neck is too narrow, and the LP’s is too flat (no appreciable radius.) I use them when I want that signature sound, which isn’t all that often. Of all of my instruments, the guitars I prefer are a Washburn MG-74 and an Ibanez "Flying Squid", and the best bass (by far) is also an Ibanez, an SRX-705 5-string.

Modern technology has done so much to improve the necks, pickups and resonance characteristics of the bodies, it is almost a given that if you go out and play these, you’ll be able to find a superb instrument for under a grand.
