I collect photos of musicians running oldschool computers in their studios. Here's synth pioneer Wendy Carlos in a 1992 photo. A lot of neat equipment on display.
The center machine I'd guess is something like a Quadra 030/040 workstation with an exceptionally large (for the time) professional monitor - maybe 21"? On the left almost looks like a IIgs monitor but the software looks more like Mac stuff - apparently Macs supported multiple displays all the way back to the Mac II so it's possible that's a second head. Can anyone identify what DAW is running?
On the right seems to be a classic compact Mac hooked up to an IBM-type keyboard (WTF). The two mice and the trackball on the bottom all look like standard ADB devices. Here's the same space in 1986 where you can see presumably the same little compact Mac with its external drive, but running the original small-footprint keyboard and separate numeric keypad. Looks like at some point between the two photos it got an external fan mod to the top of its case. 😜
Here's another shot of her 1992 setup from a slightly different angle.
And then there's that thing in the extreme foreground (bottom left) - any ideas what that is?
