I can finally add to this thread. Ive made some upgrade this year coming from a macbook pro and headphones
Moved things around a bit. Switching from Ultimate Isolation monitor stands to Isoacoustics desk mounts freed up a ton of floor space, but unfortunately there seems to have been a bit of a hit to audio quality. The room is so small and square I might have just moved from a mode to a null. Not a great space for recording, but it's the best I can do until I reno the basement.
Adam A5s, Fireface UC, Axe FX 2 (of course), i7-4770k running Cubase Pro 8.5, Suhr, Parker, Ormsby, Jackson, Ibanez. Blackstar HT40 tube combo for some louder jamming. Big amps in the basement..
Unfortunately, the most important part of my setup got cropped out. That'd be this guy here... David fuckin Bowie

Here's my humble setup. Custom built PC running Windows 10 and Reaper. Using the Eleven Rack in the road case to the left as the primary interface. A set of Presonus monitors and sub. All in all, it works great for what I've put into it.
The guitars are lined up on the wall behind where the other picture is taken from.

Not really a record setup, per se, but I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. I wanted to make my guitars more accessible and I saw a photo in a Reverb listing that showed a bunch of guitars hanging off of some old barnwood beam which looked cool (and fits in with my girlfriend's decorating style. Eventually decided on using a "living edge" piece of wood attached to a 2x6, which is then mounted to the wall studs. From there, I just bought a bunch of wall hangers from Guitar Center and then mounted them. The living edge piece of wood was about $70 for a 10' long piece of Blue Pine 1" thick from a local reclaimed building materials store ( though you should be able to find this stuff on Craigslist as well).
To hide the underlying 2x6, I cut a 1 1/2" wide piece from the living edge stock and I'll attach it to the end that's visible. This is just mocked in place:
The empty space is for a new guitar I got last week that's currently in the shop. More on that once I get it back..

While I haven't been active doesn't mean I haven't accomplished anything lol! The house we bought a few years ago has a full, unfinished basement so I figured what the hell, the kids are grown and out of the house I'll build a studio/jam room in the there. What I ended up with is a 15x30 room for letting it rip. For recording I'm using my old gaming rig since I have a different pc for that. The interface is a Presonus Studio 2/6, Reaper with some plugins for rough tracking and ideas and I just got EZdrummer 2 a couple weeks ago so I'm trying to learn that. I run that into JBL LSR305's and a Presonus Temblor T10. I've got a ways to go, but I'm having a blast!
I'm no photographer, but I was screwing around with the panoramic setting on my iphone so here's a couple pics of my man cave, lol!
1 valuable lesson I learned during this project: I hate putting up drywall and every aspect of it, lol!
