Deadmau5 in the Studio

Deadmau5 in the Studio

Deadmau5 has been killing the electronic music scene since 2007.  I believe he’s had more top 10 beatport tracks than anyone else.  He just came off a year and half tour across the globe and release 3 LP’s in 2009.  When does this guy sleep?

I found this great picture of his current studio since his rocket to fame.  Clearly, he spent som big monies on his new setup.  I love all the modular synths and outboard gear.  You can catch him on stickam from time to time, follow mau5 on twitter and he’ll let you know.  Here’s his page. The two videos are older but show a few incarnations of his studio. The 2nd video is worth a look even if its just to listen to Chris Lake describe the gear.
