Other people's home studios

I just spent ages looking through EM411's studio reviews section, where people post pictures of their home studio and other people comment on them. The most beautiful is probably this one (above left), in a huge room in a cabin in the woods near Woodstock, but there are plenty of more realistic setups (sample quote: "A lot of gear in my studio is the cheapest kind of musical equipment out there"). The only shame is that the pics are so teeny. Some people post bigger, annotated pictures, and they're really interesting, like this one (above right) - a beautiful view over the sea, a Sonic Youth box set, an empty can of beer, a cup from Subway and loads of nice gear (I wonder if he wants to give me that Roland Space Echo?).


The one on the right is faked. Good try, though - had me fooled at first.
I don't think so - unless there's something to envy in his "PC from 1988" or "Broken Lexmark Z23". The fella has just gone to town with Photoshop's airbrush and his own 'artistic flair'...
the one on the right isnt faked. the user on em411 is called poolbath1 and lives near seattle.
A whole book of hip-hop producers' studios: "Behind The Beat: Hip Hop Home Studios"
He might live near Seattle and even have a home studio but that picture is a Photoshop cut-and-paste.
