Ideal set up for YOUR workflow

I thought I would be atypical and fantasy build a high end rig with no PT|HD

Mine would be an RME HDSP with 3 ADAT i/o's and S/PDIF......
MPC5000 going into one ADAT....

I've got a hot one though... get a Roland TD-12 going MIDI into the MPC to trigger drum samples with the TD kit and not use the internal Roland TD drum sounds

and 2 Rosetta 800's going into the other 2 ADAT in's

Going into the Rosettas would be
Summit Audio TPA-200B
Avalon AD2022
A designs MP-2A
Focusrite Red
Universal Audio 2-610s
A Designs Pacifica
GML 8302
Millennia HV-3C

and going into those pres would be output from Motif XS-rack, Roland Fantom X rack, Roland V-synth and Virus TI....

Rosetta 200 going into the S/PDIF....

Going into the Rosetta I'd use a variety of Pres
Manley Single Channel Mic Pre
Great River ME-1NV
Universal Audio Solo 610
Vintech X81
Empirical Labs EL8
Chandler Comps
1073 and 1176 obviously
and a host of mics.. the standard stuff like U87, U47, U67, M149, C12, C800g, Manley Ref Gold... but offbeat stuff to like AEA and Royer ribbons... Josephson C700a

Martin D-28 acoustic, Rodriguez classical guitar, Les Paul Custom shop in ebony... Japanese Strat (fuss all you want but I dig them more than the americans)
P bass... Jaguar Bass.... Warwick Corvette

Genelec 8050's... 8040's and 7070A

as far as acoustic treatment I'd have to have someone come out and work that out... I'm not skilled enough to do it right....

I'm well into 6 figures by now... and thats without even using a console....
A decent control surface like the M24... or not get as many Channel strips and get an SSL matrix.....

How am I doing?????

2 Studer A828s
Neve 8078 for tracking
API Vision for mixing
$50K or so in mics
$150K or so in outboard and pres
Real plates
Large, fully tuned control room
Huge wooden live room with tall ceilings
A tech, an assistant, coffee intern
No computer. "Can't you just edit that?" "No."
Probably a Radar set up for archiving.

Don't forget the Mellotron.

Soy your sig is probably one of the most clever I've seen thus far....

Red... PT|HD just does everything you need it to do?

R3.. no it doesn't.

I was just having a little fun there.

I do VO work and solo work with my own music...
so I'm doing lots of overdubs

Other than my PT:
SCA N72
GML 8304
Crane Song Trakker
Bricasti M7
Eventide H3000
Wunder CM7
Earthworks QTC40
Gefell M300 (2)
Mackie HR824
Bass Traps etc.

My usual recording chain is CM7>SCA N72>Trakker>192.

For MY workflow this is pretty much the bomb.

best,

Rue

R3altruth, thanks but I can't take credit for that bit of gold. That was a very real interchange amongst the quoted parties. I really do love this place

- Brent Averil Neve 1073 or 1084 (x2)
- Apogee Duet
- Macbook (Firewire or Macbook Pro) running Logic Studio 8

That's it. The Brents fit into a small rack. The Macbook and Duet are easy to carry. To record I just have to plug something into the Brents front end.

If you want non-mobile, add a couple of Purple MC77's as tracking compressors.

A lot less than a million bucks but will sound like it costs that much

What do you think of the Juno-106?

Ted the Roland rep said they have a B-stock one that can get me for cheap.... you like it?

The Juno 106 is a great synth. 1 Oscillator per voice only, but that 1 sounds good. As does the filter and adsr.

It's polyphonic, which may or may not suit your needs.

When he says B-stock, I think he means second hand though.

Yea... like someone sent it in for replacement and Roland fixed it or the problem is something small like cosmetic damage....
the thing is.. you get those for well under costs...

You realise Roland haven't made these for 20 years or so, right ?

the 106 has a big high quality "nintendo" sound to it

I personally love the Juno 106 for two reasons:

1. I have owned about 6 of them over the years, kept buying and selling them when I needed to raise money, and last time I bought one, decided no way, I'm keeping it this time. I know the units inside out in terms of programming them so I know how to get the sounds I want out of it, that imo is half of any synth's appeal and usefulness, which is how well you know it to get what you want out of it.

2. The other half is sound. It may not sound as fat as a Minimoog, but for some reason, Juno 106 sounds sit very well in a mix. I used to get a lot of demand from people who play organic acoustic guitar music to come in and add a little Juno to it, because it sounded so natural. It wasn't big and overbearing like a Minimoog, yet it wasn't digital sounding like a DX-7, yet I am able to coax out warm organic ambient sounds out of it.
