Marco Polo Cribs Home Studio Tour

April 21, 2009

In the most recent installment of Double Barrel Tuesdays, Marco Polo takes us through his version of Cribs to reveal his home production setup where about 70 percent of his Port Authority album was recorded.

Choosing to stay brilliant at the basics, vinyl, Pro Tools, and an Akai MPC 2000XL complete with tire mark are the main studio fixtures.

Just goes to show that it don’t matter what you got, make a dope will travel. I got that roland vs880. I use it for playback too sometimes, it was a good machine back in the day.

damn, i thought my mpc was shot. you definitely don’t need all that equipment to make dope joints. all i got in my lab is an mp, turntables, mixer, records(good ones) and a good ear. i don’t have protools, no monitors, never track beats (unless i lay something down with an artist) everything comes straight out of the mpc. good to see more established producers with minimal set ups too.
