As most of you know by now, an artist in the music industry views their studio as their sanctuary, so when it comes to switching things up….it can be a bit complicated.

Recently, the one and only Ferry Corsten moved studios looking to upgrade his creative workspace to maximize his creativity and productivity.

Now that he’s all settled into his new studio, Ferry took the time to breakdown his essential bits of gear that he decided to keep during the transition in addition to why he decided to do so. Plus, he’s even given us an exclusive look into his new studio!

Check out Ferry Corsten‘s list of essential studio gear below!

“Without this keyboard, I wouldn’t be where I am now. It has been my longest friend in the studio and you could even say, my first lover. I fell in love with the supersaw sound when I first encountered it, but this machine can do oh so much more!”

Roland TR 909

“Although I don’t use it as much today, I still sample the shit out of it. Every 909 out there has its own attitude and characteristics which is what makes them so unique. I am lucky to have one with a beautiful silky sound.”

“What can I say, I just love to grab this keyboard and play around with it to make new samples. It’s just so easy with this one. It has these really cool different waveforms and FM sounds that bring such different quality into its sound.”

“This is just a beast. It’s a nightmare to work with in terms of sound designing but what work you put into it… you get double out of it. It’s also physically beautiful and looks great in my studio.”

Behringer Deep Mind 12

“I just bought this baby so it didn’t really survive the switch but is an add on and I’m in love with it. The retro design of the keyboard itself is just so cool and despite it being analogue the sounds are modern. Warm and Crisp. Excited to have a lot of new adventures with this one.”
