Gear used by Devin a. Wiley

(In no particular order)


Analog mono-synth

Organic and responsive paraphonic analog synth. Limitless sound design possibilities. Having the controls at your fingertips, the tactile interaction makes this a joy compared to plugin emulations.  

Gibson les paul

custom shop

Warm and creamy mini-humbucker in neck and aggressive p-90 in the bridge. 

neumann tlm 102

Neumann microphone

Budget model from one of the finest microphone makers of all time. Fantastic little condenser mic. 

Taylor 516e

2013 fall limited

An early Andy Powers design. Spruce top with mahogany back and sides imparts warmth and note separation.

1969 martin d 12-20

short scale

Slightly shorter scale and lighter bracing than many 12-strings makes this really easy to play. Very rich and full sound.

kurzweil 2600xs

Keyboard Workstation

This has lasted 20 years, action getting old but still great. Weighs 70 pounds.

UAD Apollo Twin

Universal Audio Interface

Excellent converters and library of plugins. 

fender bass vi

pawn shop model

Six-string bass/baritone guitar. Great for guitar players who want lay down a bass track or lower mid-range harmonies.

taylor lksm-12

leo kottke signature model

Jumbo 12-string braced for heavy gauge strings and tuning down to C#. A beast to play, but only way to get that characteristic growl and rumble.

Cubase Pro 10

Steinberg Daw

The DAW is the digital software that facilitates all recording and audio editing, mixing and mastering (with a couple notable exceptions) that I do. As a result, it’s imperative it has an intuitive workflow and all the features you need plus a few you need but don’t know it yet! There are many excellent DAWs available, I’ve used Cubase for many years and I love it. Pro Tools has many areas that cross over and I’m proficient with that software as well, but Cubase will always hold a special place in my heart.
