My budget of doom!
Ooo shiny, will this be for bass and vocals? If it's the same front end used on the ASP8024 console then I'm sure it'll sound loverly.
My little room studio is not the best studio of those posted here (I need monitors desperately), but I don't think it's bad at all.
(you can see the rest of the photos here)
Plan is to use it for vocals/cab mics/DI guitar tracks, and yep, it does have the same front-end as the ASP008 and ASP8024. A bit of a bargain if you ask me
Thanks! It took a hell of a lot of work to get this setup! Luckily I dont have much bills right now so I can afford to spend dough on it. Im 19 years old, work at a bar/restaurant making $9/h. So you can only imagine how many hours it took to get this gear. Luckily Im starting to make some good cash recording bands, that alone is starting to become a decent enough income to quit my job and be very comfortable! I just need consistency, so I will keep the job for now
Shit is class!
Been gone for a while but figured I'd dump the pics in any way...

Both the live and control rooms have been thoroughly treated with the highest grade Auralex tile systems available - The SonoFlat and SonoColumns, as well as multiple "Roominator" sets. Rest assured that you will get the absolute best representation of your source material - Ine the vocal booth even the sheet music stand is treated. Thorough ; )
This is my favorite setup I've seen in this thread. Simple, yet efficient. I'm jealous!
this is your home studio
I am speechless
Rob, it's a very impressive setup, but I have to ask..
Do you honestly ever choose to use, say, your Presonus Eureka over the Avalon, UA and Joe Meek pre's? Same with the POD 2.0 over the X3?
Also, how come only low-end monitors and only 3 mics?
If it works for you, then that's great, but for the money you've spent there I'm kinda shocked you didn't get a Pro-Tools HD rig and some top-class monitors and mics..
This setup is relaly awesome, but there is one thing i really don't get...
All this awesome equipment, but you're putting all through the AD/DA convertors on the Digi 003 ....
I'm quite intrigued why you haven't bought anything thats up there with the avalon/focusrite etc. Convertors make the biggest amount of difference to the sound, if you have good AD/DA convertors you can pretty much plug a radioshack microphone in and it will sound great.
Buy some Iz ADA Convertors and you won't believe the difference.
The studio i work at has 2 Otari I Radars (that only run in 16 bit/48khz) and it makes the RME Fireface 800 sound like an overpriced joke.
Hey guys, these are the pics from right after the patch bays were wired. At the time I was upgrading to this new setup, and went with a trade-up from the 003 to an HD3 Accel rig. Three HD IOs an HD MADI and still using the Big Ben. Believe me. It don't get much better than this. Considering its just the "extra room" on the second floor, not a baaaad home job...
Can I ask why you opt to use the Big Ben? Is there anything wrong with the clocks in the HD3 interfaces? It seems to me that if you feel an interface needs an external clock then there's no reason to actually buy the interface in the first place...
^I think he just likes to buy stuff.
If you have the means...
Good to see ya back around Rob
Haven't heard from you in a while.
So, I just did some rearranging.. Trying a stab at a hybrid studio/living room setup, since I hate wasting space in my tiny-ass studio apartment with multiple work-stations..
The shelves under the desk are on wheels, so I can pull the whole thing back towards my couch and lounge while I work.
You can't really tell by looking, but all the cables are tied up and managed rather nicely so I don't run into issues when I try to move the thing around.
The sad thing is, this only represents a cross-section of my gear. What I can't wait to do is get my busted studio monitor fixed (the working one is half-behind the TV here) so I can ditch those stupid Altec Lansing speakers.. If only there were an authorized Event repair facility closer to me than fucking Gaithersburg..
Also somewhere in this picture is likely my kitteh.
doesn't work broski
The only change since these pics were taken is I upgraded to Rokit 8s.
