Incredible much response here. When I first stepped into the control room I felt like beeing in the recording-studio-heaven. It seems I´m not alone with my feelings.
To answer and comment some of your posts:
The hanging ceiling with can be pulled up is a great idea for the small 50m2 anteroom. There is the need to make nearly all mobile/moveable because the recording hall, the anterooms and the garden is also rented for other things like concerts, banquet, festival,.....
Yes, we have a Fairchild-Rack with 2x 660 and 1x 670, beeing one of the next things that needs to be checked/serviced.
Before the thread I was thinking of 24 track tapemachine but know I´m more and more into 16 tracks, because this would perfectly fit the 16 channel desk and if somebody wants do record big amount of tracks it has to be done in Pro Tools. But Protools in a vintage furniture....I really love this idea!!!
Installing a IZ Radar is easy, because I have one at home : ) The problem is we want to have a digital system for interchangeability and Radar is not the most used system, for sure exchange is possible but not as fast and easy as with Pro Tools to Pro Tools.
The main idea to have Direct Outs and the possiblity to record 16 tracks digital is that people can track 16 tracks on Pro tools in Casino Baumgarten and than go to another studio for editing and mixing. Multitrack Analog is indented for making Multitrack Recordings and Multitrack Mixdown for AAA Vinyl Releases. Overdubs are not the main interest here (excluding vocals).
I have worked many years for broadcasting here in Austria and we have done nearly all direct to stereo but there was always heavy editing of the stereo/5.1 recording; exept "live" but this is not very often.
