If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Reading this question if its a desert island how will I plug my gear up? Never the less I would take my Monitors, interface, midi, Macbook, and microphone.... I could make my own songs and then later Jam to them, being stuck on a DESERT island wouldn't be so bad with a little music...
