    This is the most recent picture I could find.

    Since then I've gotten a better desk, better speakers (old speakers are now in place of the cinder blocks), another guitar, and rearranged everything (as of Saturday)... I moved the whole workstation away from all the amps and put the drums where the workstation was. That way, when I finish out the basement, I can build a separate control room. :)

    I took some time to get "artistic" and use my super high powerful design software (Paint) to draw up how the studio has been until recently and the new layout with the planned renovations (walls).

    [​IMG]

    Now it's set up like this, minus the walls. It's great how a wall and door can turn a pile of junk into a storage closet. ;)

    Do you record dry signals and then use sends to route to the outboard gear? Or are you actually printing when recording?

    I record what I want to hear which means tracking guitar with fx and Bass and Vox with compression etc.

    I have 3 band EQ per channel on the desk, a maximum of 24 channels I can patch in 2 channels of 5 band EQ and then I have 2 tracks of compression, a drum bus compressor and a master bus compressor for mix time.

    I use room mics to get ambiance and reverb (sometimes stairwell mics if I need a bigger reverb)

    If I cant make it work with that then I didn't record it right

    Having less options can be quite liberating and things go much quicker

    You guys have some nice spaces! I'm pretty low key these days. Set up for simple guitar tracking maybe some vox.

    My attic set up that I call "The Ski Lodge" :laugh2: in honor of the previous owners design scheme.

    My system is outdated but still works for me. I will upgrade when I can.

    I had this hooked up the other day, I don't believe in rack mounts. I pull things out of the closet & put them on utility carts.
    My home set is used for writing & post production.
    The core: MacPro Quad 3GHZ 26gb ram
    Metric Halo 2.8.8.2 audio interfaces
    Motu Midi Time Piece
    Quality Outboard Mic Pres compressors & EQ's
    A dozen great Mics
    BlueSky Surround monitoring
    Enough software to boggle my mind.

    Here's my mobile set-up. I like the sound of this room a lot! I also do prefer to be in the same room with the talent Daniel Lanois style.

    Very cool pics, Freddy. Agree on the "Daniel Lanois" style setup.:applause:
    BTW, I've heard of using full cans of paint inside the bassdrum to "tighten it up", but dogs? really???
