Whats in your studio?

Post by jeremyb »

Interested to see peoples music recording setups and to hear the story behind it all.

I will post a pic of mine and a description once I clean my desk :rofl:

Been curious about what others use.

I'm wanting to set up everything so I can use it and record or rehearse whenever inspiration strikes with as few menus as possible. Keen to hear any suggestions people may have.

Dunno if he will, Katana tolex is pretty hard to wipe down.

Menus?

Turn on laptop > double click audacity > press R

There's quite a lot of plugging in cables, but no real menus to start recording.

Yeah, I pretty much have a template in Reaper that has patches set up ready to go as well as EZdrummer etc. I probably just need to be less lazy. :D

I do find I practice a lot more with a physical amp that has knobs to turn. Seems to be much more immediate to my brain.

This is still a work in progress but the console is starting to get there. It has most functionality operational and I am pretty happy all things considered. There is quite a bit of fine tuning to do, for example, it is amazing how many of the pan pots I managed to wire up back to front.

The audio circuitry is all discrete (everything except for the meter buffers and power supply) and based on 70s technology using Helios-type amplifier circuits (2128 & 22113 circuits). It has 6 full mic pre-eqs (similar to Olympic Studios or Rolling Stones Mobile studio modules), there will be added 4 simplified mic pre-eqs (still need to make these you can see the blank panels) with no inductors just a bass roll-off and the classic Helios 10k boost-cut, there are two line level channels, and 2 x stereo returns (or line level channels) for 16 channels all told. Similar discrete Helios-type circuits were also used in the master section (which includes 4 x Aux output amps as well as the main output amps and monitor amps) and in the routers.

As a point of difference, I used a couple of transformers off the master bus (for about 10dB of gain) a method which Helios consoles did not use but which Neve consoles did. Some of the mic-pre outputs are also transformer balanced (unlike Helios consoles). There are 2 stereo auxiliary buses as well as the master bus. The frame is made out of Pterocarpus indicus.

Definitely not as pretty as it could be (the front panels need lettering and numbering and some front panels display "prototype" scars) and the console is a bit big and cumbersome (it really is a glorified prototype). It was all hand drilled, punched, cut and soldered except for the meter panels and fader panel and obviously I didn't make the patchbays. The meters are buffered by JLM Audio buffer circuits and there are also some JLM circuits in the power supply (console uses: 12V, 24V, 36V and 48V). Some of the amp PCBs I had fabricated by a third party from gerber files I prepared, others circuit boards were just made by hand (not printed but a board drilled with components wired through hole more or less point to point).

There are plenty of things I would do differently, if I had my time again, but that is moot as I will never, ever, try and build another console.
