Thom and Nigel DJ Setup, from Nigel’s Twitter.

From those eight knobs in the lower left corner it looks like they’re experimenting with an Elektron Analog Rytm, rather than their well used Elektron Machinedrum. This makes me wonder if Thom used the Analog Rytm on Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, as the beats sound as though they could have been crafted with the device.

Most of the rest of the stuff in the forefront is pretty standard for a Thom+Nigel setup. Nigel is running Native Instruments Traktor on his Apple Macbook Pro Retina 15″. Next to his laptop is a NI Traktor Kontrol F1, and underneath it is a NI Traktor Kontrol S4, both of which are controlling the software. Interestingly, he seems to have a Yamaha sustain pedal that is only available when purchasing Yamaha keyboards (not the commercially available FC-5).

Center is a Pioneer DJM-850 Mixer, previously used for DJ shows, and above that is a Boss Delay Machine DM100, used at the 2010 Glasto Thom+Jonny surprise show and possibly for DJ shows.

To the left are a Boss TU3, surely for Thom’s guitar, on top of his TLAudio Indigo Series 2051 Mono Valve Voice Processor. In front is an ElectroHarmonix 45000 Looper. Both the tuner and the looper are powered by a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus, also on top of the voice processor.

Behind the DJ rig is, Yamaha NS10′s, an API Lunchbox, a couple of Universal Audio 1176, and other bits too out of focus to identify.
