^ Kill it, kill it with fire! (Referring to the Behringer spoiling the rest of that beautiful rack)
I'm going to send you some behringer stickers for your birthday
Do not tempt me into killing YOU with fire
Newest rendition of my micro-studio:
PreSonus AudioBox USB
HP Pavilion DV-4 Laptop
The Logitechs were free, so I use them. They aren't perfect, but they sound good enough for free. All of my other guitars are upstairs.
The ADA8000 is actually a pretty damn killer A/D converter. I'm using the Pre73's as preamps with it.
And I only paid 100 euros for it.
I live in a triple and there's not alot of room so I had to build a loft bed haha. Here's my cozy little music cave!

Side question: for all those with studio monitors running out of laptops, how do you have the signal chain? Is it going from system audio (1/8") to an adapter to the monitor inputs? Or do you have it going into an interface (such as the PreSonus FireBox USB) then using the interface's 1/4" outputs to the monitor inputs?
Pretty much all pictures I've seen including mine have an interface.
But you could use a Y cable and I know people that do so. Wouldn't like to rely on the laptops D/A though!
My thoughts exactly. I'm just a little strapped for cash and trying to get the cheapest setup possible. Looking up at MikeH's setup, I'm thinking that's exactly what I want. AxeFX into FireBox into the laptop, however I would have my monitors coming out of the FireBox's rear 1/4" outputs.
Yeah for sure
I have a feeling those speakers are just plugged in there for general use of the laptop.
It's usually a bitch (I can't do it at all) to get it set up to use two drivers at once. I.e. interface for input, soundcard for output. I've only ever been able to use one. So if I'm recording through my Presonus I have no choice but to listen on my Presonus.
I actually set that as the standard driver for Windows anyway so my interface is always on whether I'm recording or not.
Yeah overall the interface just seems like a better option, and it's only $150 more haha, but I'm such a cheapass. So you have the system audio always coming out of the PreSonus into your BX5-A's, Ethereal? That's basically the setup I'm planning on getting so I'd like to know if it sounds any good!
Yeah, it sounds awesome dude I love these monitors. Really soft pleasant rubbery sound.
My small home recording space
PC: Intel Quad Core Q9550, 4Gb ram, with M-Audio Audiophile 192
Amp: Mesa Dual Rectifier Tubetone Platinum+ mod, Orange PPC412
Pedals (not shown on pics): TC Electronic Polytune, Chris Custom Scream, ISP Decimator, all powered with Voodoo Lab ISO-5, connected with Vovox Cables
Guitars: Jackson SL1T (with BKP Warpig), Carvin DC700
Mics (not shown) and preamps: Shure SM57Beta, Sennheiser E906, Art Tube MP x2 (due to its low price I use individual preamp for each mic)
Monitors and Earphones: Focal CMS65, Sennheiser HD598
The table is absolutely crappy, not comfortable for recording work, I plan change it in near future.
He you've got some nice stuff over there! What's your opinion about the FMR RNC?? I'm thinking about getting one.
Here's my temporary set up while we renovate our house!
A few pics here!
My GF... now fiance got that set for me randomly as a surprise since I'm a big fan of razer products! It's my favourite keyboard set to date and I've gone through QUITE a few of them over the years... damn beverages
I still love the start up sequence too when windows boots up
Sorry, I haven't had time to use either of the FMR comps for anything yet. I primarily got them for OTB use during the mixing stage, but we haven't recorded all of the tracks yet for the album.
Couldn't help it, ordered one for myself!
It'll go well with the collection...
Hey guys, just joined and only finished my little (bedroom) studio a few weeks back! Enjoy, i know i have been
I am new to Sevenstring.org but i registered more for home production discussions than anything so here's my budget home studio (also a work in progress)
I'm currently using a very average Acer Aspire laptop but as of next week/the week after il be running a Fujitsu Premacy with an Intel i7 quadcore processor, 12GB of RAM, and a terabyte of Hardrive space.
Superior drummer 2.2 NY avatar/Metal Foundry
I use steinberg and Stillwell pluggin's for all mixing along with Izotope Ozone 5 for mastering
Guitar and bass are tracked with my POD HD Pro and i use a Line6 Ux1 to record vocals through PODfarm with a Shure PG48 mic.
I am currently saving towards a Rocktron velocity 300 Poweramp, a Blackstar 2x12 cab and a pair of KRK Rokit 6's (seeing as my current monitors are starting to die a little)
