This is Show Us Your Studio, a chance for our readers to show off their set-up, shout about their gear and invite the world into their home studio. This week’s studio shot has been submitted by MusicRadar reader Joshua Lutz.
Tell us a little about your studio set-up? What do you love about it?
“After two years of working around the clock to build my home studio, it’s finished. My dad and I floated the control and live room in my basement and even ran tielines throughout. I started with just a couple pieces of high end gear, a Neve 1272 from an old console and a Neumann U87. I flipped them for a little more than I paid and bought some other gear which I flipped for a little more than I paid, and just kept flipping my way up and saved from audio gigs until I have the collection I have now.”
Tell us a little about your musical background and the music that you make in your studio?
“I was an Assistant Engineer at Electric Lady Studios for two years after graduating from the Conservatory Of Recording Arts and Sciences. I’m a multi-instrumentalist, I play over 35 instruments and am a visual designer as well.”
What’s your favourite piece of gear in your studio and why?
“The Altec 436C pair cause it is, to me and many other engineers, the very best vari-mu compressor ever made. It’s instant Beatles on everything. Great for tracking, mixing, mastering and 2-bus.”
What was the first bit of gear you ever owned?
“Tascam Portastudio 424MKII and a Shure SM58. I made hundreds of songs on it until I upgraded to a Roland VS880!”
