Custom made 1176? I have never heard of this, what's the story behind it?

Are you planning on filling the API lunch box with anything else?

well i know the guy who engineered "waves" hardware stuff so i just paid him to build me those Compressor and eq racks (one by one of course with the original components and the original schema) with some lil improvements
this compressor for example called UN76 (U=Urei , N=Neve) the reason is its the exact 1176 but with the output (make up gain) of the Neve 1272! simply amazing!

about the API , of course i'm planning on filing it with alot of other stuff! i want the 525 compressor and some other racks from purple audio , but , of course it will in a later stage as these stuff are very expensive.

as for the sub , its not overpowering its a really accurate one which i crossfade to play everything below 75 (75 - 22) , a thing which REALLY made things better for the S2a as its playing everything above that and it reacts alot better now

Adam Sub 12 for my S2a
also bought an API 500 Lunchbox with the APi 512 Preamp which i'm getting this week and a fireface 800.

soon to come (a month or two) : moog voyager + all the mooger foogers and two new babies for a new rack (prolly the Chandler Germanium compressor and another preamp).


if you would have to recommend only ONE mastering device (compressor, limiter, eq etc, analog bla bla bla), what would it be? compared to price also ofcourse

well it really depends on what you are looking for.
i'm not doing mastering usually , just a tight mix and then send it out to a mastering house.

But, what i like to do is mix all the tracks through a certain chain (master chain) that sometimes incl my compressor and eq (mainly for the color).

i use the compressor first with a very small low gain reduction just to tighten up thing a lil bit (u can call it glue compression) , afterwards comes the eq and a fast limiter only for very fast peaks.
******very important rule for me is to make the chain before i'm starting the whole mix not not in the middle or in the end of it.....from my own experience that's the way and not the other way around....

its nice for SOME of the mixes as it gives a warmer more tape sounding mix.
for trance , i don't think i'll use it that way.
i'll compress few parts in the mix to give it a unique color but will use the UAD the most as the "colder" sounds fits better for trance.

i would recommend u to take few analog (high end) racks for a day or two to ur studio and check out how it fits to ur music.
i also bought those racks mainly for recordings u simply HAVE to get some good gear to get that sound i wanted and it sure proved itself

The 80s are pretty massive actually, one reason why I opted for the ALP5s.

Arpegia - In all seriousness your studio looks spot on, well able to focus in there.
