Jim's studio is a computer-based environment designed primarily for scoring to picture, programming, and mixing, featuring high-end PMC monitoring. Running a 750+ track Logic template networked via 5 computers with Vienna Ensemble Pro, no score or arrangement is too ambitious.

The studio is 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, Ensoniq VFX, and others - along with current favorites Yamaha Montage, Access VIrus TI Polar, Sequential Prophet Rev2, Korg Minilogue, Roland System 8 and JD-XA - plus a massive collection of the best virtual instruments on the market.
