I'm an old self-taught musician who played clarinet in high school (the only formal musical training I've had). I primarily play keyboard, but I've been known to play bass and a little guitar. I also play a mean dulcimer, so look for some very strange mountain music in addition to my usual fare, which generally follows the prog-rock and electronica/electronic rock genres. I don't like to pin myself down though - I end up playing soundtracks for space movies that don't exist when I just sit and play.
My rig is not that impressive. It's mostly old stuff with a few new pieces thrown in.
A Kawai K3 that I bought new in 1987 for $1200.00. I financed it. I think I paid it off last year. 6 voice waveform synth with a really fat, almost analog, sound.
A Kawai K5 that I found at a yard sale. $20. The keys don't work very well, but the synth itself is fine
A Casio VZ-8M that my wife found at a yard sale for $20.00. It has a dead internal battery, so every time I start it I have to do a full system reset. For that reason I only play the stock sounds. Some of them are beautiful, and some are so cheesy that they are also beautiful.
Pro-Tools 9 with the basic stuff. I get lost in the sounds - I'll pick a sound at random and see where I end up. Some of the resulting weirdness ends up here.
CamelAudio Alchemy - One of the best RTAS soft-synths around. Uber-programmability, and a couple of my tunes have been selected as demo songs on the Alchemy soundcloud group (https://soundcloud.com/groups/camel-audio-alchemy)
