Below is a pick of a rig I racked up to track an album at a local "warehouse" type studio that usually does indie-rock type gigs. I was doing a jazz 3-piece and just needed to bring the bare bones tracking rig similar to a remote.
Can anyone pick out all the rack gear? Bonus points to anyone who can pick out what the little silver box on top of the telefunken lunchbox is.
Damn! I knew this was gonna happen sooner or later! I'll have to borrow my friend's digital camera. When you see the pics you'll notice too much empty rackspace. I like to tell people that it's for airflow, but I know better. grudge
I've been a professional lurker on these boards for quite some time, and wanted to say thanks for your forum. It's kept my attention for the entire month. Glad to see you'll be staying around for a while.
We did a gig last weekend at a quaint little church here in the bible belt. The Charlotte Philharmonic Orchestra did a concert with an outstanding violinits. We took our regular 16 track "pops" type rig even though this show was far more "classical" oriented.
I used a Royer SF-12 up front in to a John Hardy pre. That turned out to be a great combination. Other mics for spot placements were some KM-84's, U-89's, 4050's and so forth. The recording turned out great. We spent the last few days mixing it and should have a disc ready for sale in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for checking the board. We need more live recording & location production people like yourself around these parts. I'm happy to hear your attention was kept for the entire month. Now we got to keep your attention 'til the end of the year!
Hey, you got some really nice toys, comps, pre's, etc. Very strong!
Marc, check your Gearslutz mail box, I sent you an important message.
I'm happy to be staying around, but I cannot do it without people like yourself. Keep the posts coming and tell all your friends!
Thanks again for the kind words and for your contribution to this forum.
99 bucks is a good deal on that one. Does yours distort when used on a bass in flange only mode?
I'll check that tonite and let you know.... I wouldn't be suprised if it did.
I pretty regularly set up the ****tiest mic i can find (last one was a Bullet, the funky harmonica mic..) and print mono drums right through the mofx, distorted and no hi eq passed.... lot's of fun as loop fodder behind the traks.
Another thread mentioned that Electrix was dead in the water, I'm gonna search out the Filter Factory and eq killer (for cheap) I think these little boxes will become somewhat of a collectors item in years to come....
oh yeah ....pics of the new truck and mobile rig to follow.
Michael W, are you using the ADAM monitors all around now? Happy with em?

Yes, except for the sub. I'm running five S3As and a M&K 5410 sub via a LFE-4 bassmanagement. And yes, I am extremely happy with the ADAMS, mixes go faster and translate 100% to the outside world. Even though the volume is absolutely loud enough for mixing, in stereo they are just barely loud enough to do guitar overdubs in the control room (depending on the guitar player) but 5 of them kick major butt. We'll finally get a lottery now in Nashville, so I'm looking forward to a pair of S5As. heh
