Talking Mike´s PT setup

Mike,

Would you mind sharing your own Pro Toos studio´s gear list / favorite plugs / outboard / reverbs...
We all are G E A R S L U T Z and have great desire for this.
Any pictures ?

Thanks a lot !

My Protools set up is an HDAccel system with 6 Accel cards and a Procontrol. The plug favourite's is such a personal thing but at the moment I am partial to the URS plugs , the Cranesong Pheonix plug, Metaflanger , soundblender, whatever compressor works , which varies a lot. Then the Folcrom etc. We have every plug known to man on this system so we're pretty covered and having all the Accel power means we can run a lot of stuff if need be.

Mike in a previous post in Dec. 03 you mentioned you were going to get an Icon console. I'm sure you've had a private demo of that piece by now. Are you still going to order one?

Is this set up at your home Mike? what are you monitoring on....amps etc.
Are you on a G5?
If you do use a home space, is it designed with mixing in mind, or just an available room?

thanks !

I have 2 set ups at home at the moment one is a control room I designed myself , it seems to work just fine.Its got a ''compression" ceiling , and looks like a big living room. I don't care for contol rooms that look all grey and dark etc so I've got a lot of natural light in the room.
No parallel walls etc. and a lot of big couches and such. I had a little help with trapping but we really did it ourselves to be more like a living room than a typical studio. I don't use big monitors so I don't buy into the whole "dead" control thing with nearfield speakers. Tho we made sure it was accurate of course.
I have a mix plus system in another room so that overdubs etc can be going on while I'm mixing(just like today!) Both rooms are a good size. It's all about vibe as well as accuracy and so many studios are so generic.
I am using a G5 dual 2gigfor the HD rig , on the mix plus is a dual 1.2 gig.
As for monitors I have the obligatory ns10's with a Bryston 4B amp. I don't listen loud and never have except for once or twice a day for a minute or so to check it out but my aveage monitoring level is quite low so I don't need a lot of power just very clean. I have a pair of of KRK E8's and I'm trying the Adam's right now.

Mike,

For home ITB mixing you're using the Fulcrom. What are you using to amplify the back end, and what do you strap across the stereo bus?

Have you tried Impact? What are your thoughts?
