What would be your dream studio setup?

I love working out of my home but a detached building from the house is the next step. We are moving permanently to LA in two years and were looking at real estate that will accommodate such a space.

    Hey Rob-
    Nice studio! We’re in LA & use the pretty much the same stuff… though may be switching to Logic soon! Are you into Hollywood strings too? Anyway I’m visiting my cousin in Lexington from Aug 19-25 so I thought I’d say hi. We’re doing Geek Charming right now (little Disney Channel movie) but have done features for them too. Nathan Wang is my biz partner. My bud Craig Stull, from Lexington, is our first call gtr guy… well we use George Doering too :) Best always, Gary Chase

    Hey Gary!

    Thanks! Logic is a great program and I actually considered a change during the dark “DP 6″ era but since 7 has come out I’m very happy…will be happier when they finally get on with 64bit!

    Hey, if you’re going to be in Lex in August, email me at and I’ll give you my phone number – let’s chat over some coffee! Like I put in my “dream studio” section, we’re moving to L.A. in 2 years (as soon as our daughter graduates and heads to NYU) and would love to make a new L.A. friend – AND the fact that you use a lexington guy like Craig shows that you’ve got good taste!

    Hope to hear from you!
