hey folks just curious what people on here have as a recording setup
Loads of duvets, an SE2200A mic (which is brilliant frankly.. I've borrowed mics way more expensive from work and still prefer the 2200A) and a UA-101 (24 bit, great pre's). For bass I take the DI out of my ashdown amp, and sometimes mic it as well - the only thing you have to do is adjust the mic recording a bit to make it sync right. Guitar wise - wee fender amp, se2200a, lots of placement experimentation.
iMac G5 (17" with 1Gb RAM) currently running Garageband (going to change over to Reaper though so I can swap ideas with a few guitar playing mates who are stuck on using PCs) and EZDrummer with the DFH expansion pack. Using a Line6 toneport UX2 as my interface. I have a set of Samson Rubicon monitors which sound great, but I haven't got them hooked up at the minute... my room rattles when I use them so I'm sticking with headphones until I have the room sorted.
Next work/purchases will be
1). Sound treatment for the room
2). A homebrew desk (concrete blocks, cheap kitchen worktop, speaker cloth to cover)
3). Homebrew speaker stands (probably shuttered concrete)
3). A decent mic, pop shield, Thomann's version of the Reflexion Filter and a nice heavy duvet (cheap vocal booth)
4). POD Farm for reamping guitars and bass.
5). Midi keyboard.
Maybe look at a better interface in the furure but if I get that all done I'll be set for a while!
