Seriously, though, this is an $80K Didson SONAR unit that I'm using for a fisheries study this week. My boy and I are testing it out in the bathtub. It works sorta like an ultrasound in that it sends out high-frequency SONAR and converts the returning echoes into an image. OK, so it's not studio-related, but it is sound-related, so I thought I'd show it off. It's really cool!
It reminded me of this.
Nothing lasts, nothing lasts, everything is changing into something else. Nothing is wrong, nothing is wrong, everything is on track...
You know, William Blake said... uh, nothing is lost. Nothing is lost and I... I really believe that, we only move on...

Those dudes are f'ing nuts.
And, just for the record, the SONAR gear is low-voltage, and everything is powered by batteries, cuz, uhhhh, well, there aren't too many outlets out on the open waters, well, at least not that I can find.

Fuck me Raphie, it's always been a pretty serious setup but that is wish list shit right there. The SCL from anyone I've spoken says it is just beautiful. Possibly the cleanest compressor out there. Would love to hear some A/B samples if you ever get the time. Nice job man.
The only things I can see wrong with this picture:
1, I would not have the K&H's directly on the wood - I think they have those rubber base pads but still, I think you'd see a marked improvement with recoil stabilizers.
2, Guessing at your I/O potential, I think you could do with a patchbay; I would hate to think of you having to run twice in and out of a DAC just to do inserts with kit that transparent?

The K&H's are on Sorbothane feet, dead silent
I've got an SSL X-patch bottom cabinet just above the SCL-1
the X-patch got the SSL-G, SCL1, API's and Alphachannels + 2 inserts to the Trident (Mix bus and Group 1) and 1 insert to the DAW
So when patched to the Trident all stays analogue and when not using the Trident but just an insert in wavelab for mastering, i can daisychain anything connected to the x-patch in any sequence without conversions. All thought over really well
what % of your time is spent mastering. As opposed to producing. The desk alone will introduce phasing that if you were serious about mastering, you just wouldn't have. NOt to mention your oddly placed treatment. I mean it is a little silly to have the angle behind the screen covered yet not the area 90 degrees from that trajectory.
i mean if you are serious about mastering. I wouldn't even bother with a desk.
That's why I also have an insert patched directly to the daw, so i can choose.
you don't see the whole room, there are other pics before in the thread, got a floating decoupled floor, superchunks, monstertraps diffusor panels etc. the room measures really well.
Rann as requested
only the SCL-1 on the mixbus glueing the track together, no extreme limiting or mastering, just the Barricade on the mainbus, not reducing any gainjust to prevent clipping.
please download the 320MP3 so oyu can listen in higer quality than 128kbit SC stream.
