My current PC hardware is a custom built machine on a Gigabyte motherboard with a Soundblaster Audigy LS soundcard. I also have a BOSS DR-550 Drum Machine and 3 external MIDI systems,a Roland XP-10 keyboard, a YAMAHA TX81Z and an EMS-100.

Most of the time my guitar is processed through a Fender Super Champ XD or aJohnson J-Stationand an Epiphone 5-watt tube head driving a 1X12 Celestion cab, my Line 6 Spider III 30 or my 3 watt mini tube combo . I also have a POD and a Behringer Bass UltraBass 1800H Head driving a 2X10 closed back Cab.

All this feeds through a Behringer Eurorack mixing desk - most times I record some mixture of direct and miked sound to give it all some live feel.
