Hi Armando, it's nice to see photos of your place looking so great. It's an inspiring thing to see. I hope you found a good use for those DBX De-Essers you got bought from me a while ago.

So great man, love the photos.

I still want to know about the method for wiring the racks, how the tube gear is kept quiet being close together etc. What about heat dissipation? Must have an incredible power scheme. Geek details is what I want to hear. Thanks!

If you look close, the gear that produce heat are separated with one rack space with a black vent grill: Vack Racks, roland modules, the retro stuff, the Sony DRE777, the Harmonizers, etc, etc.

Gear like 1176 are close to each other because they don't get hot.

The pultecs and fairchild have tubes in the back, but the tubes are exposed and are not close to anything.

We also have Air Condition in the back of the big rack with a lot of space, you can walk in there and fix any cable easy.

We don't have any hum problem at all. Everything is grounded. All my audio cable is mogami.

I've produced around 500 songs in the last 6 years here and never had a problem with noise.

This place ROCKs!

Best regards.

You are very fortunate!

Were there any considerations when running the power from the "pole" outside to the building and then to the racks? Separate transformer, power conditioner etc? Grounding rod? When you say grounded, each item grounded to chassis?

The studio is for my own use, we don't rent the place.
My own projects fill the calendar, we are planning to open a rent studio soon, because now with most studios closing, there are not many rooms available for rent. Ironically, now its a good time for opening a studio for rent here!

Best regards.

Well, my tech knows all those details, I only know that everything works great! My job is know how to use the gear but more important, my job is write and produce music.

Even the website is amazing.
And the whole studio is just for his own productions.
I envy no man, but in this case I have to make an exception.

I bet his wife is gorgeous too.

Hey James, well yes. We both share the same disease, but after watching your videos, I noticed that you are infected too!

See you in San Francisco!

I do but I think on a less grand scale. Man your place looks unbelievable; big and commercial but with instruments everywhere and a feeling of wanting to play and make music. Perfection!

No offense taken.

Yes, this studio is for my own personal use. My company holds 5 great producers/sonwrtitters, our building have 6 independent studios. Each producer have their own work. I mean, I don't delegate any of my projects to them. If a label hire me, they can be 100% sure that I will do that production.

Some times I can't take some projects because of time or budget, so my manager always offer the option of our pool of producers, in that case, I could appear as an excecutive producer and supervise their work. 9 of 10 times labels say yes!

But yes, the studio I'm showing in these pictures are my own personal studio. Later I will show the rest of the studios.

Best regards.

That's the whole point I wanted a studio to make music, nothing corporate, I don't want it to feel like a cold commercial studio, I want to have everything to make my artists happy

Hope you could come and visit us James.

Hey thanks man!

Yes, a lot of work. But its also love for music. I like to be a collector, but the best thing in my opinion is that all these toys are being used and are making music every day.

What's the point of a 58' strat un-played in a glass cabinet? I don't want that! I want to rock her!

Best regards.
