A little hx

In response to a inquiry about a recent drum session from a Scot:

Here’s my mix position; immediately under the ADA logo and next to the top of the bottom monitor (Tannoy 6.5II) is the breakout box for the M-Audio Delta 44 I use an interface to Cool Edit.

Those are some Rat Shack/Optimus speakers in white, on top of Auratones.

The rack from top is:

2 TS patchbays (the tiny little box on top right by the yellow cable is an STP-1 Attenuator I use to pad pre-amps and compressors to get them to distort)

Power strip

DOD 822 (compressor, prob’ly manufactured by dbx, and sound like it)

dbx166A (compressor)

dbx160XT (compressor)

Gyraf 1176 clone (compressor)

Twin RNLA’s in Funk Logic rack mount (compressors)

ART VLA2 (compressor)

ADA Micro-cab (OK analog speaker emulator)

M–Udo Breakout box

Meek C2 (compressor), FM RNC (compressor)

Summot 2BA22(pre), Meek VC3Q (channel strip)

Meek MC2 ((compressor), VTB1 (ore)

Eureka (channel strip)

ART TSP (twin pre)

Symmetrix 522 (compressor)

Meek VC1Q (channel strip)

Altec 1589b (pre)

Power strip

Hafler T2 (rack guitar pre, not shown)

I also have an ISA1 (pre) UA710 (pre), UA110 (pre), The Brick (pre)and an MP105 (pre) what are under the shelf under the right-side monitors.


Some guitars (new TV !!! I bought last week in backround):

Amps frome the mix position:

Left stack: HD130 atop a Marlboro iuse as the cab, pedal board hanging in front

Tiny Terror atom jet City 1×12″ convertible cab

Tech21 Trademark 10 (awesome 10w.  S/S amp based on Sansamp)

Vox Pathfinder (awesome 10w.  S/S amp with incredible tremolololo behind chair)

Peavey Transtube   (OK S/S 20w.? that does decent metal sounds, nice reverb)

Right stack:

Pro, Jr. (a fave)

Ampeg VT60 (rare Mesa clone – bought last fall, and it’s very versatile bit heavy, 60w., 3 channels, 7 tubes)

Marshall Silver Jubilee

Hot Rod Deluxe

Atop the deluxe is a Magnus chord organ I just bought – used to have one and they are great for quick keys and sound pretty unique.

I also started onna Porta 1(!)  In about ’88. By ’90 I did demos for a few bands that used them to book some decent clubs.
I then went to a Tascam 238 with an Alesis 1622 board for a few years (’93-’98-ish).
Then the Boss BR8 in ’99, what I bought the day my now-ex left me – HA!.
I started to use Cool Edit about ’01 to mix those tracks.
Bought a few sound cards (Soundblaster then M-Audio Dio) and then the Delta 44 about mebbe ’03.
I have Cakewalk, and Reaper, and Audacity,  and Wavesauras, and I’ve used ProToolsLE and about 3 other programs but I know and still love and so use Cool Edit, which I have onna 7 year-old custom XP Pro 2x P4-3000GHz SATA.
