- First was a console ala Backbone years ago.
- Last year did a 4 channel transfer console for analog cut from tape (see pic)
- 19" Pitch control unit to control my VMS70 lathe (same pic)
- Now working on automated transport control unit for VMS70 lathe
- Oh and I sell 19" remote control units for Studer A80s

in the 50's and 70's it was very common for sound engineers to build their own equipment - partly the whole studio.

nowadays, this seems to be still common among mastering technicians, at least it is noticeable that many mastering technicians build (or have built) their own solutions and modify their equipment.

it is also remarkable that we use very different setups and systems, karumba and i have e.g. a strongly interlocking DAW/analog-chain setup with 4 parallel chains and self-written software monitor controller as well as some other plugins of our own (which is quite easy to do in reaper)

I've built a lot of stuff over the years:

- mastering console with processing and monitor source switching + monitor control

- tube tape preamps for my Studer transport

- a fixed frequency Baxandall eq (back before the current crop of Bax eqs were on the market)

- tilt eq

- passive eq with JLM solid state makeup gain amps (aka Grand Poutine)

- a custom hardware SRC unit

- a few VST plugins including a 2-band hi/low eq with fixed wide Q and limited gain, and a Haas delay widener

And of course modified anything and everything because I just can't help myself.

I go through phases where I'm keen on designing and building stuff, and other times where I don't want to see a soldering iron ever again.

I hear that! Presently in phase 2! Everything works. Don't feel the need for more stuff. Hmmmm. Losing my GS cred?
