Here for the gear
 

Help me decide!

I have about $2k to play with and I have some considerable gaps to fill in my studio as far as gear goes. Here is my setup:

Apogee AD16x
MOTU 2408 mk3
Central Station
G4 1.42 2 gig ram
DP4.12
Waves Platinum
Tannoy Reveal Actives

(2) 451s
(3) 421s
AKG SOLIDTUBE
(2) SM57s
(2) ATM25s
(2) D112
(2) AT4050s

Great River ME-1NV
Sytek M4iii (8 channels)
RNP
Seventh Circle Audio N72 (2)

and I have no acoustical treatment on my walls. yikes!

So obviously I need some stuff. I don't like to compress so please don't recommend a distressor or something.

thanks!

I think you've just answered the question of what to invest in first, IMO.

With that $2k budget and ALL the stuff you listed, I gather you can see where confusion kicks in on our part?

How about this:

1- what gear DO you have and would like to keep?
2- what exactly are you trying to accomplish?

I would personally like to get a better drum sound, a little punchier... maybe something API. Then again my vocal chain sucks, and I think it shows sometimes. The SOLIDTUBE really works well on some people.. but eh on others.

hope that helps a little bit. i was just curious as to were you guys thought my chain sucked within the confines of a mid grade project studio.

the acoustic treatment will be addressed! trust me!
