Studio

I use a lot of instruments: synthesizers, keyboards, samplers, effect processors, electronic drums, hardware sequencers, guitars, santoor and acoustic percussion. I own a few wind instruments, some of which I tried and played or sampled on early albums.

Date: March 2018 (Equipment in red is new since 2015).
