My First Mobile Rig

Hey there!

I'm in the middle of setting up my first mobile rig. I plan on doing a range of work including; tracking vocalists, tracking bands rehearsals/gigs, pre-production and location work. Before I spend too much more cash (inevitable) I was hoping to get some advice from some old heads. If you were in this position what sort of gear would you get?

This is what I have so far:

a) 8U Gator Rolling Rack (19 inch depth)
b) 3U Rack Mounted PC
c) Apollo DUO Interface
d) 4 x height adjustable gobos/acoustic panels
e) 2 x Genelec 8010 Monitors
f) Furman PL8CE Power Conditioner

My main questions are how would you approach additional preamps? I particularly like the flexibility of the UAD 4-710d, has anyone used that and the apollo together? Can I someone use the sends/returns of the UAD 4-710d as a splitter? What is the best way to integrate those units together.

Help would be much appreciated.

Best,
Mat

I use a mobile recording rig for performance as well as recording. My XITE-1 has good mic pre's but I really like the sound they give to my Analog racked monobeasts, so my first and last purchase for mic pre's were the FMR RNP's.
Great quality since I didn't buy a name brand the price was also great.
Often have access to a rather large rental company so auditioning several was easy.
What's inside the 3U PC...?

Just checked out the Scope XITE-1, looks like a great piece of kit.

Do you ever need to use splitters for your purpose? If so how do you approach them.

I just converted my PC into a rack mount chasis like this for ease of mobility.
