I just stopped in the high end section looking to narrow my search for a buss compressor... This was a pleasant surprise. Amazing place!

Hi Delcosmos


what is the difference between the 4000 and the duality (in sound and workflow).
When you use one or the other?
Are there a lot of maintenance .... ?

thanks for your help

Not only does Delcosmos have the most ridiculous collection of gear, he is also hands down one of the NICEST people you will ever meet.

The Duality is an amazing console. Plenty of headroom and the workflow can't be better, thanks to the DAW control. The Buss compressor sounds great.

The 4000 its an old system, the computer is ancient technology but... I am one of those who love the sound, the buss system and its compressors.
Now that I know the computer, I love the automation, its so easy and practical!

Best regards.

Delcosmos.

Dang, he must be pretty strong for his age if he put those up there... I bet I could get one of those in my apartment, as long as I didn't need to have anything else. I could put the amps out on the patio probably.

You know you are doing well when you buy gear, and the owner of the company comes to your place to set it up.

Mr Behringer has never been to my studio.

Well, not "some" of the gear, ALL the gear.
My music build this studio.

(A long story short):

Everything started in 1990 when I bought my first Korg M3R, my Proteus 1 and a used ESQ1 as a midi controller, after that, the madness began.

I spent months without paying the rent or even without money for eat or survive, just to be able to pay that compressor, a microphone, or that "Audiomedia card" ha ha ha, but my studio was first, always.

Then in 2002, success arrived (as a producer and songwriter) suddenly I was able to get the gear I wanted.

With more success, instead of buying expensive cars, trips, mansions, party, girls, etc, etc... I opted for investing everything in my studio. (how boring I know ).


Best regards.

You can't imagine what we had to do to put those monsters up there. They weight almost 500 kilos each!


They sound amazing, really.

Quested are some of the finest speakers on earth and Roger is a genius and such a gentleman.

Amazing Armando thanks for sharing!

I see you have a bunch of Kubicki Ex Factor basses.

Are they your favourite? And what kind of tonal character do they have that you dig?

Hello!

Well, I must confess that in the 80's I dreamed about having a Kubicki Ex Factor Bass, for me it was impossible to get one at that time (starting from the fact that I was 13 years old!).

Then 3 years ago I produced an amazing band named "Belanova", the bass player of the band, my dear friend Richie, has an amazing collection of different basses, among them, a few Factors. I was amazed by the detailed sound of the Ex factor, so I ordered one directly from Philip Kubicki but he responded that he was full with no time for taking orders. :( Then my friend Richie told me that the quality of those basses changed when Philip sold the company to Fender, so it was a good idea to get a "Pre fender" 80's one.

The hunting started and I found a nice 1987 red, I fell in love with the nice action and easy playing so I got a vintage fretless, then I got a third one that found in good price. They are a joy to play, really.

That's my long story about my Ex Factor collection.

BTW, my favorite bass is my old Fender Jazz Bass 1977' that my dear friend Juan Carlos Moguel gave me as a present many years ago. That bass have played on many, many latin hits!

Best regards.

Very cool! Love a good 70's Fender Jazz.

Re Kubicki I remember hearing Stuart Hamm's tones and being impressed by the clarity and punch.

What do you normally plug (any of your) bass guitars into?

I track both, line and amp.

My favorite "DI" box is an Avalon 737 using its "Instrument input". Really, I like it better than their U5, I tried the Reddi and it sounds good, but there is something about the Avalob 737 that I like.

Amp is a 70's SVT Ampeg miced with a fet 47.

Best regards.

Not always, but hey, most of that gear is on the setting I like, also they are already patched on the inserts of the channels I use the most, so its only matter of turning on or off the insert on my SSL.

After so many mixes, I already found the sweet spot of most of my gear. The only cases where I have to move things are with some eq's, but I can go back and forth a half meter if I need to.

I like having those problems!

Best regards.
