A game: my other hobby, and a bit of fun for you all...

Hi All

Well, as a few here might already know (my user name sort of gives it away a little) - my other hobby is that of music making. I try to do chill-out and ambient, as well as recording brass, guitar and Heather's vocals. I am not that good, but I do try and I really enjoy it.

Anyway - here's a photo of my current set up - though I do have a load of new kit that I haven't included in this image (mic & vocal/guitar recording booth) too so might add that to the next pic.

Anyway, for a bit of weekend fun see if you can have a go at identifying some of the kit I have labelled. Some easy ones, some not so easy, and some hard... but I thought you might like a game. Enjoy

Oh my word John, I'm not sure I know where to start!

Is No1 some sort of mascot, a lucky teddy?

And the arrow for No2, is that pointing at a specific switch or the keyboard in general? You can see I need some help with this!

How are things going with the brass band, btw?

Yes to the lucky teddy John, it is on fact a teddy from my girl... it says 'No.1 Daddy'

#2 is pointing to the keyboard in general, John.

Not involved in banding at the moment either John - a tad too painful.

Taking liberties.

How to cheat without really trying I think this photoshop thing is handy!

Hope this is taken in the spirit it was intended and others do not follow can only put it down to my return from Doctor and being told ; BP close to roof, ECG is OK rest of me???

Sorry Music Man from somone who only plays the CD player and badly at that I just had to get one right.


Number 22 is either a chair or a cushion?

Aha.

Do I spy ProTools (17) on the monitor, together with some VST plugins (16) and a pair of near field monitors (8) .. plus an old school analogue mixer (18), sennheiser phones (4)

oh, and (20) a pen for correcting all the mistakes made by guitarists....

Ouch Pete. Everyone knows drummers who make expensive mistakes. ?. Like knocking things over and going in some rage at things.

2 looks like a Korg
5 and 7 are either sequencers or drum machines
6 is a CD recorder
9 is a wallet
10 is an iphone
11 is a MacBook
15 is a monitor
15 is an USB hard drive

23 is the fridge with the beverages. It's not in the picture because you sat on it when you took it.
