My Home Studio

I love making music and creating sounds on my synths. I'm using the following equipment:

Akai S01

One of the newest musical gear I have purchased is the Akai S01 MIDI digital sampler. It's an 8 voice polyphonic sampler, using 16 bits sampling technique and 32 kHz sampling frequency. It's equipped with a 3.5" HD floppy drive and can load samples from the Akai S1000 sound library.

The Yamaha CS1X Control Synthesizer is specially designed with an intuitive, interactive user interface through lots of dedicated panel controls and sound editing features which can easily be manipulated in realtime during performance.

The Roland MC-303 Groovebox presents new creative approaches to dance music. With its 120 Preset patterns and an awesome 448 Tones and 12 Drum sets, the MC-303 has everything to get you up and grooving within seconds.

Roland XP-50

The Roland XP-50 Music Workstation has great sound which is the same as the acclaimed rack mount synth JV-1080.
In addition, it has a capability of adding up to 4 expansion boards to expand patches, waves, and drum sets.
At the moment I have the DANCE Expansion Board, the EXPERIENCE Expansion Board, the VINTAGE SYNTH Expansion Board and the TECHNO COLLECTION Expansion Board.
