A Beatport article from May 2008 shows a snapshot of Deadmau5's technical rider. This is taken from his performance at the Beatport stage at Movement 2008. The third item on the top row, right below the MacBook Pro, is the Apogee Ensemble audio interface. The original article can be found [here](http://news.beatport.com/blog/2008/05/24/deadmau5-technical-rider/).more
"My desktop Mac is an eight?core Intel with 8GB of memory, and I have Apogee Ensemble for going in and out of the computer, and Brent Averill BAE 1272 and BAE 312A preamps, plus a Universal Audio 1176 compressor. Almost everything I track goes through the 312A, then the 1176 and into the computer. Everything else is done in the box. My master keyboard is a Roland A37, my monitors are the Adam 7s, and I recently acquired an Adam Sub 8 bass speaker. My room has some acoustic treatment, with stuff above my head and in front of me. I also have a large selection of analogue keyboards, organs, Moogs, ARPs. I love these things and I have about everything from the '60s and '70s. I've sampled many of them in Logic's EXS24 sampler, so I have a bunch of unusual and imperfect?sounding sounds that I can use for writing and arranging.”more
