Spacejunk III is now an airconditioned three room set-up comprising a daylit control room, a conventional "live/dead" studio room, an ambient drum room (suits acoustic instruments and vocals) and further improvised spaces including isolated amp/ speaker cabinet, and "live" wooden upstairs space with vintage upright piano.

Recording is both analog and digital-  depending on the desired result, an MCI JH24 16 track 2" tape recorder can be the final destination, or combined with the digital recording system which is based around an Apogee Symphony 64 card with audio via Apogee Symphony I/O 24 in  8 out, an Apogee DA16X, Lavry Blue AD and DA, and Audient Sumo AD. It utilises both Logic Pro and Protools software (003 or CoreAudio), running on Apple MacPro and MacBook Pro computers, there is a Quad UAD DSP Card for extra plugin power. Audio is patchable to both a TOFT ATB16 in-line analogue 8 buss console (52 inputs avail) and an Audient Sumo Class A Bus mixer, with an eclectic collection of hardware devices both classic vintage, retro, modern, and rare, to further colour the sound at will.
