My set up

A short tour through the gear I use to bring my live blues to worldwide audiences.

The whole setup is built around a Whisper Room isolation booth - 7 foot high, 5 foot by 3 foot, carpet covered room with doubled windows. Inside are two microphones - a Shure sm58 for vocals and a Shure sm57 picking up the guitars.

These are running to a control station outside the booth - an Alesis Mictube duo preamp brings them into an Alesis Multimix 8 mixer, with two channels going straight to USB, into a Dell studio xps running Windows NT. Here, Shoutcast for Winamp is used to stream the audio signal and Audacity can be used to record.

Happy Holidays to one and all!

You'll find a new song - "Just Like Christmas" - on my SoundClick player in the column to your right. Enjoy!
