Connell McCarthy is a senior designer for Shopify by day and moonlights as a musician. His setup was built to handle both of these activities.
He works at a Strucktube table, by Tokyo Desk, which gives him a ton of space to work with. His monitor is the LG 32-inch FreeStyle IPS Monitor which gives him good screen quality without breaking the bank. The nerve center of his rig is a MacBook Pro.
McCarthy used to have the Magic Keyboard and Mouse combination but has since switched to the Logitech MX Vertical Mouse for its more ergonomic design. <!– –>
For audio, this hobbyist is strapped for gear. He has a Yamaha HS5 Powered Studio Monitor. The HS series is Yamaha’s iconic speaker for a reason. When he is not blasting his Yamahas, he has a pair of the reliable Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Studio Headphones which are rapper Lil Dickey’s go-to headphones.
He uses the Rode NT-1 Microphone and the awesome 61-key Komplete Kontrol Keyboard to bang out some bangers. McCarthy uses the Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 USB Audio Interface to handle all of his equipment.
