This is how actually my studio is. Some changes happened during the time, and I am planning to revisit it again soon...

Listening music from the A1200

 

This is how actually I listen to some music on an A1200 with stock 020 cpu: to save space on your CF, you should save your files as .AIFF 8bit @16Khz. Believe me, sounds good (of course you can use 16bit amd 44Khz sampling rates, but you need a lot of space. An alternative: accelerate your Amiga bu putting a faster CPU or some modules like Vampire or PiStorm.

A sample

 

Sound designer like during my childhood :) This is how I was editing sounds. This is still today in modern Daws like FL Studio, Cubase, Audacity or Audition. The only difference: there was not "non destructive" mode during the 80's and 90's.

Sampling software

 

The softare of my Clarity sampler. I sample everything inside this software, and then I refine all my sounds inside Octamed. Unfortunately Clarity 16 is not compatible with Octamed: this means that Octamed can't see the device directly.

My entire studio setup

 

This is my previous setup. The iMac was removed (I have to recap it) to make space for a second monitor for the C64. The setup consists in a PC, Amiga, C64 and some external audio interfaces, a Yamaha keyboard and one mixer.

Amiga inside

 

There is a 4GB Compact Flash, used as Amiga hard drive instead of having a real HD. This solution is smarter, less prone to disaster recovery and faster than a real Hard Drive.

Fl Studio meets Amiga Octamed

 

My main daw is FL Studio on Windows, and many samples comes from it.

My C64c running GEOS

 

I use C64 because of it's analog synthesizer MOS SID, one of my favourites to synthesize powerful bass sounds. My main daw here is Mssiah Midi Sid, a powerful cartridge that host an entire musical operating system.

My amiga sampler: the Clarity 16

 

This is the interface to capture sounds into the Amiga. It's really powerful, and can sample up to higher 16 bit resolutions and frequencies. But the feature I love from this marvellous interface, is the ability to "monitor" the entering audio output through the Paula Chip. This interface connects to the Amiga via both Serial and Parallel ports, has one stereo output (yes, can playback sounds!), one stereo audio input, and integrated MIDI interface (1 x Midi in and 1 x Midi Out).

Sound capure and audio I/O

 

The ur22 MKII is my main audio interface, it's positioned next to the Clarity 16. Like the Clarity one, also this powerful audio interface has MIDI in / out capabilities, and can sample/reproduce audio up to 24bit @192Khz. Sorry for the C64 display support. I don't have monochrome legos :XD"
