1964 Fender Jaguar.

Also bought a Retro Powerstrip but I don't LOVE it...it's great but I think at this point in my life I could spend the money on some other stuff.

Been going DIY 500 series crazy. Pretty addicting...the guitar pedals of pro audio

GML is a thing of beauty.. diametrically opposed to a 1073... but equal in weight and value where it fails to reach.

Couldn't agree more. I've only used it on my mix bus, but plan to use it on more individual and group channels in the future. The first thing that is immediately apparent about it is that its high frequency shelves open up mixes giving them air to breathe. The idea of mixes breathing is a cliche, then you actually hear it and you're blown away. Combine that with the ability to go into the lower frequencies and focus more tightly and you have a great tool. Very flexible. Two thumbs way up.

I got a little slutty with adding some
more gear to my studio

This year I picked up another pair of ns10m's since my last pair got stolen while I was away
This last month:
Vintage Neve 1081
Retro 176
Distressor
Silverface 1176
Rosetta 800
Phoenix nicerizer MkII
Soundelux E47
picking up a pair of Focal Trio's next week.
Then before the year is up an I'm hoping for an API 2500 and Bock 251
And a new baby girl in December which tops all this lovely gear

Here for the gear
 

TLM170's

I have to say the new pair of Neumann TLM170's and the Phantom control box to go with them was one of the best things I bought this year, along with a Lauten Audio FC-387 and a mint TLM127...

These were the nicest things I bought this year...

I believe I am now allowed to post into High End-forum after acquiring a pair of DBX 160VUs. I am one happy son of a gun!

I mean at least this once... :(

Yes - The Chandler REDD sounds amazing.
Cant wait to hear their new compressor.

These lists are amazing



In January I sold of a couple of 2-3U units that were eating up a lot of rackspace and replaced them with 500 kit.

Today I finished my first 10space 500 rack, of which there are 8 channels of DIY (4 preamps, 4 EQ's and 2 compressors) .


I also replaced the interface and made for a 8U rack with (what I think is) a high-end mobile studio:


- 500 rack with 2 tube preamps, 2 neve preamps, 2 neve EQ's, 2 Kush Electra and 2 1176 clones

- SeventhCircleAudio rack with 4x Neve and 4x API

- Midas XL48 8x preamps

- Orion32 interface

- Behringer P16 powerplay hub.



I'll see how this goes, don't think I 'need' any more preamps but I could always decide on getting a second 500rack (for non-mobile use) to put the EQ's and comps in.




2015 is still going as a great year!

I guess it's the UAD octo I just got, but really all the dough is being spent on finally sorting out the acoustics of my place.

No VU'S, no valves, boring.

But thought it might be advantageous to actually be able to hear WTF I am doing LOL

I collected 18 channels of the Danfield 716a SSL channel dynamics clones and also got a GSSL with turbo mod. Figured that if I can´t afford a full blown SSL console it might make sense to get the dynamics seperately
