Alibi's Little Corner Studio

“People sometimes ask me about the instruments and effects I use on my projects. While I've been somewhat reluctant to discuss this in the past - not because it's a secret, but because people tend to overfocus on the tools rather than the sounds and sonic landscapes themselves - I thought I'd share what I currently use in my studio. I'm not formally endorsing these products (with the exception of modules by Tall Dog Electronics), but they are all excellent studio tools, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to fellow musicians or composers.”

"Firstly, I have a Eurorack modular system, shown here sitting on top of my Aries modular system:

The system changes from time to time, and is in process at the moment as I figure out a balance that I want for modular synth live performance. It includes all of the Tall Dog Electronics SE series modules: uBraids SE, uClouds SE, uRings SE, and uo_C SE (Ornament & Crime). All of the modules are licensed CC BY-SA 4.0 and are designed, manufactured, and sold by my son Dan at Tall Dog Electronics. More info and availability at

I also have a classic/vintage ARIES modular system, which I hand built from kit in 1975-6.
It was fully restored by Dan Gilbert.

I have a  new studio manager here! Her name is Alibi.
She has a specific interest in anything in the studio she considers edible.

Sirius (Siri), my previous studio manager, passed away
in December after 12½ years of excellent service.

Siri (July 2010 - December 2022)
He was the goodest boy!
