Who are you, and what do you do?

Ben Lee. Musician. Singer/songwriter. Producer. Composer. Professional adventurer. Activist. Pursuer and celebrator of wild ideas.

What hardware do you use?

Guitars. At the moment an old Guild I bought in 1996 and have never been able to get away from, and then a Maton EBG808 for alternate tunings. A notebook. A laptop. My phone. A couple of good mics. I love my Wunder Audio 047 copy. I have an Apogee Duet interface. I go through phases of having more or less equipment. I didn't bring much out to Sydney from LA so things are pretty minimal right now.

And what software?

Pro Tools.

What would be your dream setup?

Everyone wants more options, but I'm not sure that ultimately helps. The "dream" has always just been a guitar that feels good, that I connect with, and a voice-box that works. I've got those now. So I guess I'm living the dream.
