What's your studio/recording space like?

Very small back bedroom!

What are your goals for recording your acoustic music?

Just to keep having fun. That's the only reason I do it.

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

I tend to play folk, country, country/blues and even pop. Whatever I hear that makes me think "I want to do that!"

Is your studio space treated? How?

No, if anything I have made it worse by covering the walls with acoustic instruments such as banjos that resonate when I'm playing in there.

What's in your mic locker?

One single Audio-Technica at2035 condenser mic with pop screen, spider mount and boom mic stand.

Computer-based or standalone recorder?

Sold my Gibson Chet Atkins SST and used the money to buy a 2014 27" iMac top spec and upped the RAM to 32GB. This has a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 plugged into it
With line 1 for the Mic and Line 2 going into my K&K pure mini transducer pickup I have in my baby Taylor. Line 2 is pure guitar, line 1 is a blend of guitar and vocals.
This runs into Reaper and the only things I use are slight compression and the aether reverb. Playback and monitor through AKG K242 HD studio headphones. The headphones are great!

Favorite mic pattern/placement for recording acoustic guitar?

Don't have one, just have the mic placed above the soundhold near my head.

New gear you have your eye on?

A vocal booth for when noisy friends come to record!

How has home recording evolved for you?

Only had this setup for 2 months, so now I'm getting used to a Mac instead of a PC and using a DAW.
