Calvin Harris

Calvin Harris is a Scottish DJ, singer, songwriter, and record producer. In terms of studio setup and gear, Calvin Harris goes a bit against the grain of the majority of today's producers who do everything in software. His studio is home to numerous keyboards and synthesizers, many of which are vintage. In a video interview he talks about locking himself in his studio free of online and social media distractions. In there he records sounds from the hardware synths into Logic Pro, which he can then take with him on the road and expand on the songs and ideas. Harris' live setup is Pioneer CDJ-2000s and a DJM-900 mixer.
