The other half of the picture

Excuse the mess in the background! Here's the other half of my music setup.
On the top is the output mixer, which sends sound from the piano, computer, external MIDI devices and so on to the monitor speakers or headphones. Next shelf down, we have a PSA-1 modelling guitar preamp, a TX-7 (rack version of a DX-7), and a drum machine. In the bottom, we have the computer which runs the soft synths and does the recording, and a mini-mixer connected to the input side of the sound card. The mixer allows me to have the preamp and a microphone plugged in, and select between them without juggling cables.
