Behind Paul’s station sits a small rack of gear. Top to bottom: Mackie 1202VLZ Pro mixer, Sony CD player, AudioSource stereo preamp, E-mu Vintage Keys and Vintage Keys Plus modules, and Roland JV-2080. The cabinet on which these sit hides a miked Leslie 145 for the B-3. To its right you can see one of the Bose L1 speaker columns Paul uses for monitoring.
Oberheim OB-Xa — one of the most desriable vintage polysynths — above Kurzweil K250, the original sampling grand.
Minimoog Voyager sits diagonally between the treble end of the K250 and Paul’s gear rack behind him.
To the left of the K2000 atop the piano sit Kurzweil PC2R and Roland JD-990 modules. The JD-990 is the rack version of the JD-800, which used to sit where the Fantom-X7 is now. Yes, that’s an old-school phone, and yes, it gets used on the air.
A Mackie 16-channel Onyx mixer brings it all together. It sits behind a Kurzweil K2000 V3, atop Paul’s Baldwin grand piano.
The view from the most coveted chair in TV keyboard playing: Paul’s Hammond B-3 organ and Roland Fantom-X7.
