These kinds of articles are popular, but I've never written about my setup before (except for my large collection of keyboards). Here's a glimpse into what's on my desk.
Every workstation needs a solid foundation. I have the biggest desk they make, cause Papa needs room to play. I used to aggressively cable manage, but have gotten a bit lax since it's a pain!
I barely use the standing functionality, but it's nice when I do need it. Or when cleaning underneath.
My third-favorite computer of all time. So fast, so small, and works well with the display I already have.
My second-favorite computer ever, second only to my 2007 iMac. Really fast, really light, the keys feel good and no Touch Bar. I seriously love these M1 Macs. They truly feel like living in the future.
This display won't win any design awards (or maybe it did?), but it's worked well for me for over 4 years. Good color, and plenty of space. I only wish it were wider.
This audio interface offers two mic inputs, which I thought I would need but don't. It sounds good and is pretty stable. Would buy again.
The gold standard for broadcast microphones. I've used it for everything from Tuple/Zoom calls, podcast recording, and laying down vocal tracks. It sounds so good. Pop a preamp on this thing before hitting your audio interface and watch it come alive.
These over-the-ear wireless headphones are great. They switch between devices instantly, and the sound quality is decent. The noise-cancelling is amazing compared to my old Bose QuietComfort 35 II set.
Downside: The case (if you can call it that) looks dumb.
I spent nearly 20 years with my Tannoy Reveal v1 powered studio monitors. Sadly, our house cleaner knocked one off its stand and destroyed it. 😔 I got the JBL's as a replacement and they're pretty good for what they are. They're not ridiculously big, they have a nice, even sound and good connection options. The price is good as well.
It takes a lot to make this face beautiful. I do a small amount of Tuple/Zoom calls, and occasionally stream web development and Rocket League. This ensures that I look wonderful. The bokeh from the Sigma lens is to die for.
These lights aren't fancy at all, but they're a great value. They come with a sturdy stand, and a little remote to adjust color temperature and brightness. Most importantly, they get hella bright.
