Jim's studio, affectionately called The Temple of Boom is a computer-based environment designed primarily for scoring to picture, programming, and mixing. Running a 750+ track Logic template networked via 5 computers with Vienna Ensemble Pro, no score or arrangement is too ambitious. It's also a keyboard player's paradise, home to some of the most iconic synths ever made, including pristine vintage classics: Yamaha DX7, Roland D-50 and JD-800, Ensoniq VFX, and Korg O1/WproX - along with current favorites Yamaha Montage, Access VIrus TI Polar, and Korg Minilogue.
