This week we are featuring Key Poulan for our workspace. Enjoy!
1. WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DO YOU DO? I’m Key Poulan and the owner, composer, arranger and publisher for Key Poulan Music. I’ve been a music educator for 30 years as a high school band director. (Westfield HS – Houston, TX / Merced HS – Merced, CA / Clovis, HS, Clovis, CA / Buchanan HS, Clovis, CA). I compose and/or arrange music daily and still have the opportunity to teach students at Clovis North HS, Clovis, CA which is one of my greatest joys.
2. WHAT HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE DO YOU USE? I have a MacPro “Beast” (Mac Pro 2.7 GHz 12-Core Intel Xeon E5 with 64 GB of memory) and a travel Laptop (MacBook Pro). My software is Sibelius 7.5.1, Logic Pro X, Komplete 10 Ultimate, Garritan Concert and Marching Band, Tapspace Virtual Drumline 2.5. I compose with a Roland RD-700 synthesizer and M-Audio Keyrig 49. I use Adam A7X powered monitors for the MacPro “Beast” and Mackie monitors for my keyboard.
3. WHAT IS YOUR WORKSPACE LIKE? “Mission control” is my recently updated workspace. I love the concept of upcycling and repurposing things and when the Cedar Lanes Bowling Alley was torn down, I contacted the salvage artist to create the perfect desk of my dreams. I have 3 Thunderbolt monitors and am doing my best to be as paperless as possible. I recently obtained a Yamaha Grand Piano that compliments my arsenal of Yamaha trombones.
