Steve Pordon
I've been playing guitar since 1987 and noodling around with computer music since about 1993. I enjoy doing covers and remixes, but I also have a shitload of original music.

Most of my work is done in FL Studio with various VST instrument add-ons, although I prefer Cubase for guitar tracking work. I do all my mixing and mastering in Cubase. My music production environment currently consists of an Intel i7-11800H / 32GB RAM laptop running Windows 11, Focusrite Clarett+ 2Pre and Clarett+ Octopre interfaces, Alesis X25 MIDI controller, 90-watt Mesa Boogie Mark V combo amp, a 19" rack full of sound processors, Monoprice 600800 condensor mic, dual Nady condensors, Shure SM-57 dynamic mic, Neumann NDH-20 and Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones, guitars, bass, banjo, Akai MPC One, and analog synths.

Guitars include an Ibanez RG560 (1989 Japanese model), Schecter C-7 SLS Elite Multiscale, LTD Eclipse EC-1000 Deluxe, Jackson SL2P, Jackson Monarkh SCX, Seagull Coastline S12 Cedar 12-string, Cordoba Iberia Series GK Studio, and a 1957 Kay K8224 Professional jumbo acoustic which was a present from my dad many, many years ago. I also play a Deering Americana 12" banjo and an Ibanez SR500 bass. I run the electrics through Amplitube 2/3/4/5 or Revalver 4 on the laptop, via the Clarett preamps. I do the same thing with the acoustics, using microphones. The synths (Poly D, TD-3, TD-3-MO, RD-6, RD-8, RD-9, 2600, Pro-1, and Neutron, all from Behringer) and the MPC run through a 16-channel mixer.
