Our studio
We've found the Alesis-16 to be a dependable and highly progammable drum machine with a wide range of configurable sounds for each component of a drum set. The lack of a real singer offers us quite a different set of problems, but the Helicon VoicePrism we picked up off ebay for cheap has given us the ability to create the illusion of having a real singer. Our recording deck is a '97 Dell Dimension desktop with a 425 mhz Pentium running a 10 year old version of recording software, Steinburg Cubase 3.0. Our song files are non-propriatary, totally generic MP3's which can be run any computer or MP3 player without registration.
