What’s in Jonathan Coulton’s studio?

By David Mackenzie March 31, 2016

Most recording is done on a Digi 002 with Pro Tools LE on a Mac G4 desktop. I also use Ableton Live, Apple Soundtrack and Garageband for loopy things and other digital manipulation. Drums are frequently from either the Reel Drums collection or Discrete Drums. The studio room itself has these items in it:

Martin 000C-16RGTE cutaway acoustic guitar
Gibson Les Paul Studio electric guitar
Fender American Stratocaster (bought new in 2006)
Deering Good Time banjo
Mid-Missouri M-11 Mandolin
Mele Tenor Ukulele
The cheapest Fender electric bass they had in the store
Ditto for the acoustic bass (some kind of Dean cheapie)
Wechter Scheerhorn resonator guitar
Moog Etherwave theremin
Ensoniq MR-Rack sound module
dbx 376 tube channel strip
Line6 Pod Pro guitar amp modeler
Behringer Bass V-Amp Pro bass amp modeler
Shure KSM32
Shure BG 4.0
Shure SM 58 (but of course)
