And there was no need, because said mod merged said threads and there is no longer any dupe.

Shall we sticky the most recent sidechaining thread as well? That topic comes up a lot too.

Thanks. I have it posted here a couple of times before, but there is so many pages in this thread it is easy to miss. It is simple and to the point. I feel like I have the money in the things that have the greatest impact on my work.

edit: is that the presonus central control station, had that on my mind for a while but ended up going inano cheap way out, but for now does the deed.


Yes. Really great unit for the price. Fully passive and a decent amount of I/O for only $500 ($650 with the remote). The next step up is the Dangerous Music Monitor ST, but at $1,800, it is a bit much for just a monitoring solution.

Yeah, I find that the better I get, the less "stuff" I need. Most of the stuff on my wish list are more "wants" rather than "needs". UAD-2, Sonnox, Waves SSL/API, etc. Mostly software. TBH, I use the built in Logic plugins more than anything else. That's one of the coolest things about Logic is the built in stuff is so damn good, you almost don't need anything else. However, it is good to have some 3rd party stuff, especially the UAD stuff, many of which are easily some of my favorite 3rd party plugins.

The only thing I'd like to do is replace the Novation with an actual synth that would double as a master keyboard. Since I already have the VA and analog mono covered, I was thinking of picking up a used, first generation V-Synth. They go for under $1,000 these days on the used market and I figure that its a piece of equipment that has capabilities I do not already possess, so it would make a great addition to my setup.

Also, at some point I'd like to upgrade my AD/DA. EIther by replacing my MOTU 2408 with something better or getting outboard conversion and running my synths and monitors through that unit or units. However, the MOTU performs admirably, so its not an immediate concern. I'm only interested in units with a PCIe interface, so anything thats an order of magnitude better than the MOTU is going to be north of $3,000 which puts it firmly in the "want" category.

I love it. Cheap and well built. I actually bought it a quite a while back when I was still on PC using Cubase. At the time I rarely used it, so when I switched to Mac, I actually disconnected it and it sat on a shelf for over a year. Then about 6 months ago I hooked it back up and started using it extensively. Now I don't think I could do without it. I actually prefer it to some of the multi-channel fader controls such as the Mackie Control unit. It's easy to know which track it is controlling because it can only control a single track, which is the selected track.

One of the neat things about using a unit like that is when you are trying to find the right level for a particular part. I'll usually bring the fader all the way down and then close my eyes and slowly bring it up until the track sounds balanced in the mix. You can't beat that level of physical control. It's got transport controls as well, so that makes it easy to hit record with my left hand while keeping my right hand on the keyboard playing a part. Highly recommended.

nice man!
i know exaclty what you mean about want vs. need: feels good when you get there! I'm pretty much there as well, having all the basics, and have just reached upgrade mode... should be fun getting better gear!

and that's EXACTLY what i thought when i was looking into buying the fader as well, even down to physically picking it up till it fits in from the bottom!

it's on my to-get list now

Not sure which fader you guys are referring to, but I've had a Frontier Designs AlphaTrack for years and I use it like an extension of my hand when I'm mixing or tracking. It's one of those pieces of equipment that has become so integrated into my workflow, that I just take it for granted. It's very flexible as well in terms of creating custom functions, controlling your plugin effects, etc. I highly recommend it.
