What's your studio/recording space like?

My man-cave music room.

What are your goals for recording your acoustic music?

To achieve the best possible results I can as an avocational guitarist working in a home studio.

What kind of music do you like to play/record?

Solo instrumentals on guitar and uke.

Is your studio space treated? How?

Wood floor, small circle (6' or so) that consist of 6 homemade 4' x 2" x 3" bass traps/acoustic panels, 2' x 2' trap on ceiling right above recording seat.

What's in your mic locker?

2 Shure KSM 137 SDC
1 Shure Beta 57 Dynamic
1 Audix SCX 25 (soon to arrive)

Computer-based or standalone recorder?

MacBook w/ GarageBand

Recorder? DAW? Interface? Preamp? FX? Plug-in's? Ext. HD's for storage? Monitors? Headphones? Power amp? Controller/mixer or completely ITB? Cables? Mic stands? etc. Whatever you use.

Apogee Duet 2, Shure SRH 440 headphones, Mogami cables

Favorite mic pattern/placement for recording acoustic guitar?

Like them all, although probably Spaced Pair the best

New gear you have your eye on?

Apogee Quad would be cool! Then I could have mics all over the place. Love to have some better mics as well: Gefall, Neumann, Schoeps

How has home recording evolved for you?

I've gotten very interested in doing the best recording I can in my home studio. Its caused me to learn much more about equipment and recording techniques/processes, and also has prompted me to do a lot of experimenting to see what works best. Fran and others here have been a huge help in improving my knowledge base, and I'm very grateful to have access to such expertise.
