Any particular reason you chose it?

Yep, it's the SA538 (not the B version). I chose it because I wanted a really airy, harmonically rich large diaphragm condenser for tracking vocals and acoustic instruments. They're not cheap but then compared with other big name LDCs they're definitely on the affordable end of the scale, and all of the clips I've heard of it sounded like it was exactly what I was after, tonally. Bit of a gamble buying a mic without trying it out but I figured I could always return it if it didn't do it for me, but thankfully I'm really really happy with it. I got my singer-songwriter buddy to sing some lines for me to try it out, you can hear the result here:

Charter Oak vocal test - Joe Janiak singing "Shadow of the Night" by Nolly on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free

The only EQ involved is a tiny high shelving cut at 20k, with just some compression and ambience (plate reverb, short stereo delay)

That looks almost identical to mine! I use the MKII's, ATH-M50's, and the logitech webcam . Instead of an Axe though I use the HD500 and I have a Blackjack in the same cream white color. Heck, I even had a similar Antec case until I replaced it a few weeks ago with a Corsair.

I always knew I had good taste, but now I feel totally validated!

Good looking setup duder.

*edit same Ipod generation and color as well I need to get a twin picture up sometime soon.

Start on page one. Every time you see an AxeFX or a Pod you drink.

Finally bothered to take some pics of mine, desk is incredibly messy at the moment but what the hell, and yea my friends feel the need to do poor attempts of graffiti on my foam piece of wall...

Anyway theres and Axe FX II, using an Eleven Rack as an interface at the moment until I buy a proper one, Tannoy 501a monitors, a Yamaha DTXtreme electric kit to control Superior Drummer 2.0, and Pro Tools 10. And the best bit is the Beyer Dynamic DT 770 Pro headphones, they are EPIC.

My desk:

My guitars:

My cheap bass (the previous owner put some gay stickers on it...)


PC specs:
Phenom II X4 975
8GB RAM

Monitors: Logitech Z4 (can't really call these monitors...)
DAW: Reaper
Interface: Line6 UX1

Guitars: Ibanez RG1XXV (BKP Painkillers wired to 3-way switch, middle SC disconnected)
Fender Classic Player Strat 60s

Bass: Ibanez GSR180-BS

"Amp": Kemper Profiling Amp

Cheap (studio-wise, and compared to you all. My gf thinks I'm crazy), but I'm just starting to see if I even want to get into the whole recording/production thing at all.
It's very interesting, but I lack creativity, so I don't have that much material to record and mix
