John H's Mac mini setup
Mac mini located under the 23" Cinema HD Display, running Ableton Live 7, my main sequencer for music creation. To the right you see a MacBook Pro, also running Ableton Live, usually used for live gigs.

Wow, that is an incredible amount of gear. And everything looks so neat.

Very nice, love the 808 and 909, I kick myself today for selling my emax sampler, you don't see many of them in the wild nowadays.

Nice rig!

Awesome! I agree with Castaway, very neat and tidy. Usually setups like this have cables everywhere and are quite messy. Well done!

Does the NES work?
John H [Jul 09, 2008 at 12:07 PM]
Thanks a lot for the nice comments! The NES works perfectly, although it's not plugged in at the moment. My idea is to use it with the Midines hardware / cartridge interface for complete MIDI control of the NES sound chip.

Very nice. I agree with Castaway and smiggs. See my studio in the Mac Mini setup photos (John M's mini setup). Not as elaborate, but great for what I do. Is that an emachine at the bottom?

@ munsongeek: Thank you. And no, it's an old no-name PC, built by a local musical instrument store and used for sequencing in the late 90s..

Excellent and clean!

How pleased are you on a scale of 1 to 10 with how well you mac mini handles your music composition?
John H [Sep 23, 2008 at 03:20 PM]
I think I would give it a strong 9. It's stable enough with its 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2 GB of RAM (for Ableton Live I recommend at least 1 GB of RAM), and coupled with the 23" Apple Cinema HD Display and a Focusrite Saffire LE firewire soundcard it feels really nice.
