Gear and Room vs. Technique
Let's face it, a place called Gearslutz is going to have more than a passing interest in gear, but most will agree that the driver matters more than the car. Still, a Pinto is not a Ferrari. How important to you is the gear when recording or mixing? And how about the room itself?

Gear is very important and I prefer to use analog gear as I always have. The room is very important. I have recorded in many rooms and I seem to make them all work for me.
The studio I am working out of now (Sea Horse-downtown Los Angeles) has a big tracking room with 25' ceilings. I prefer a large tracking room however I have got big sounds from small rooms.
