    hooking up my macbook to my HDTV gets a fairly good resolution but took me ages fiddling with the settings to get it to fit to the screen properly and still be a good resolution.

    also a word of warning, if you're planning on using a HDTV as a monitor, beware of screen burn, me and both my housemates have experienced this, it does fade away after a while but something to bear in mind :yesway:

    I used that same model desk for YEARS. It worked great! It's actually still sitting in my garage from when I upgraded to my current desk.

    That reminds me... I gotta post that thing on Craigslist. But I'm gonna miss it :p

    Hey man,

    It's a DDA DCM232, it was DDA's alternative to the SSL! Neema just went through and recapped a bunch of the preamp sections of the channels and it's brought it back to life again. Needs alot of work but we'll get round to restoring it back to how it sounded back in 1989! The eq section sounds fucking amazing.

    I apologize in advance for this possibly taking up a whole page, but here't goes.... Taken on my highly advanced HD Xbox Live Vision cam, here is the overview of my bestudoid (bedroom-studio):

    [​IMG]

    Comp: 21" iMac '09 - 4 GB RAM, 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 500 GB disk space, 800 Firewire port
    DAW(s): Logic Pro 9, Reaper 64
    Plug-ins: SD2.0 w/TMF, Komplete 6, Ozone/T-Racks, Pod Farm 2 (I would really like to have the Complete Composers Collection by East West more than anything.)
    Other software: GP6
    Western Digital 1TB external hard drive
    Powered monitors: M-Audio BX8a
    Interface: Firebox
    Pod X3
    Keystation 88es

    [​IMG]

    Mic: Rode NT1-A
    Cab: PPC412

    [​IMG]

    Rack: Furman PL-Plus PC, G Major (which I'm selling BTW if anyone's interested), BBE 361 Sonic Maximizer (this, too)
    Decimator pedal (this, three)

    [​IMG]

    E-kit: Alesis USB Pro w/added Alesis rubber dual trigger pads/single triggered cymbal, Alesis Trigger iO, 2 Yahmaha KP65s, and this Smartrigger hi hat setup: YouTube - Setting up Hi Hat Controller with Electronic Drums 1: VFD

    [​IMG]

    The reason why there are two Trigger iOs is because one alone didn't have enough inputs for each of the pads I use. They both connect to this MIDI merger then into my interface and it works just fine. You can buy a Trigger iO instead of another drum module if you're already using one with drum sampling software -- much more frugal.

    [​IMG]

    5 toms, 2 snares, 10 cymbals (the 5 apparent plus tom rim triggers)

    [​IMG]

    2 Cannon Twin Effect pedals for single/double/triple/quadruple bass option with rubber Tama Iron Cobra beaters

    Guitars: Agile Intrepid Pro Dual 828, stock Made in Japan Charvel

    Basses: Conklin GT-7, Brice (Rondo Music) fretless 6 string
