You seem to work in a hybrid way with hardware inserts etc. How many inserts from Pro Tools do you have coming up to patch (and from what converters)? Do you further insert across the Neve Melbourn?

On your main website picture, photos section, what is the digital controller console just in front of the screen? (In one of the polaroids, with WILL I AM, this seems like it is extended - or is this another place?)

Do you miss working on a large format console or do you think that with your current set up you have the best of both worlds now?

Many thanks in advance,

Oops, forgot to answer the above... The pict with Will is an old setup I had. Don't know if there's a shot of the new set up.... Same basic idea tho. Analog summing and controller for the Pro-tools...

I don't miss working on the large format consoles at all. My set up gets similar results because I'm summing analog, but I can work on several things in a day without taking all that time to 're-set' the room. Don't get me wrong, I dig workin on an SSL, and I love the sound of em, but I can automate more and tend to my clients faster the hybrid way...
