In an [article from *beatportal*](http://news.beatport.com/benny-benassis-righthand-man-cousin-alle-benassi-on-the-ghost-writing-phenomenon/), Alle is asked what's currently used in his studio, he responds, "The core of the studio is a [Mac Pro](http://equipboard.com/items/apple-mac-pro) with [Logic](http://equipboard.com/items/apple-logic-pro-x) and a [Protools HD II](http://equipboard.com/items/avid-pro-tools-hd-2) system with a couple of [Digidesign 96](http://equipboard.com/items/digidesign-96-i-o-analog-digital-converter) interfaces connected to some analog and virtual-analog stuff, such as a [Moog Little Phatty](http://equipboard.com/items/moog-little-phatty-stage-ii-keyboard-synthesizer), [Voyager](http://equipboard.com/items/moog-minimoog-voyager), [Nord Lead 2x](http://equipboard.com/items/nord-lead-2x-rack), [Virus TI](http://equipboard.com/items/access-virus-ti-desktop-synthesizer), [Yamaha CS1x](http://equipboard.com/items/yamaha-cs1x-control-synthesizer), [Sherman Filterbank](http://equipboard.com/items/sherman-filterbank), and so on.
