Ryan Leslie’s latest studio setup
1: Yamaha Motif – You can do it all on this keyboard – as well as sampling & sequencing features. It supports .wav files too. Most modern studios will have either this synth or the Korg Triton. Will set you back by around $1500 to $3000. Sound modules sold seperately.
2: Dave Smith Poly Evolver – Available for around $2000, this looks pretty cool when the studio lights are dimmed, with its built in LED’s. This one tends to be used in Techno & Dance music. Got some crazy sounds you’ll only find on here.
3: Alesis Andromeda A6 – I believe he used this to make Addiction. They’ve stopped producing this synthesizer but it’s still pretty much an industry standard. Should set you back by around $2000.
4: LG Plasma Screen built into SSL 24 Channel Mixer – Available in most modern studios.
