I'm thinking a vinyl turntable for sampling off of vinyl,
a microphone for general voice,
a microphone and sufficient sound-proofing for more advanced recording,
an all-in-one pc/mac configuration with a selection of software (DAW),
a bunch of headphone sockets,
couple of pairs of decent headphones,
an alright sound card for capture/playback with low latency.
I have a cheap midi keyboard I would give to the project, it's a bit
long though so storage may be a pain in the arse.
I have spoken to a several people who have an interest in this area,
who have said that they would like this kind of setup at the space, so
now I want to see if it's at all viable.
Who on the list has an interest in this actually becoming a reality?
Anyway, the pledge can be changed, I just wanted a ballpark figure
there so we had something to aim to - feel free to adjust/propse
I agree we need it.
I would prefer that we could rip apart a working machine, and place it
into an easy to move enclosure - quick setup.
I've got some old keyboards and other bits and pieces I can lend to the 'space.
Would be totallest awesomest if a dedicated mini-area could be set up, but I guess there's slim chance of that.
Oh and can I suggest focusing on the hardware setup first and worry about what software to run later?
Software is lot easier to change as we go along. And we will never agree on what to install, and what not.
If we want to go totally old skool I have an Akai S300xl sampler that I'll willingly lend to the cause.

Yes, yes, yes! Please
