Video Premiere: Nick Hook Studio Tour for Scion AV

Nick Hook

If you love vintage gear, get ready to drool. Greenpoint, Brooklyn-based DJ/producer Nick Hook gives Scion AV a look inside his studio outfitted with an array of vintage synths including a Dave Smith Prophet-8, Roland Juno 106, Roland SH101 and Sequential Circuits Split-8. Hell, Hook even has a Moog Vogayer. “I like keyboards with knobs,” he says in the video. “I like to run things through my keyboards.”

Hook’s amazing collection is rounded out by a host of vintage drum machines such as a Roland TR-808 and TR-909. Rather surprisingly, Hook proudly holds up his covered Rat distortion box and shows off his EMT 250, which is “the first digital reverb ever made.”

Though he’s big on hardware, Hook also gives us the lowdown on his software setup.
