Show me yours and I'll show you mine. Lets use this first month to show what we have at the start of the year, and return later to show how it evolved. I try to scrape some previous images too and tell how I got where I'm at at the same time.
Do the same if you feel like it! The purpose of this is to give fellow slutz some quality amateur or professionally made control room, live room and gear porn. And while no setup is too small, no setup is definitely too large either. Make us drool!
Game is on. Lets see those slutty pictures and hear the sighs captured on the scene with all that obscene equipment. Make the year 2013 a year to remember!
Here are pics of my VERY humble, and VERY small studio space, aka the second bedroom in my house where my girlfriend would really like to have her office, but can't, haha.
The purpose of this space is for composing, arranging, and tracking. Most everything goes in direct, or is a VI. I mic a few things in this space (guitar cabs, acoustic guitar, tambourine, shaker, triangle, djembe, some vocals, etc.), but it's not the majority of the work. I mix at a different studio owned by a friend.
Next year will bring proper acoustic treatment, a monitor upgrade, a "dressing up" of the DIY monitor stands and face-up rack, and hopefully an upgrade to my current V-Drums.
I'm excited to see some more decadent spaces than this come up in this thread.
sample recording i dont think i could do much better:
Here was my old setup I had for a few years:
sold the keyboard, laptop, ps3, dmp3 preamp, pci interface card, headphones, etc. Now here's some random pictures of mics I bought over the past few months and then sold. Not all the mics I've had just the few I remembered to take pictures of. I must say a lot of mics suck hard. dont buy them: Ended up keeping only the SM7b.
I also sold my canon rebel t2i. God I don't know where all the money went, lol.
SM7b - Overall gave me the best results
SM57 - Had some weird distortions when I talked loudly into it.
SM58 - Made me sound honky
AT2020 - All I remember is MOUTH NOISE
AT2035 - All I remember is MOUTH NOISE I like this mic though a little brighter than at4040 if i remember right.
AT4040 - All I remember is it sounding somewhat similar to my sm7b except more open sounding and detailed. MOUTH NOISE! Not bad.
Sennheiser MK4 - Way too warm and harsh
ND767a - SOunds amazing but not natural and plosive
RE320 - Sounds like a SM57 but bassier and I don't like the Neodymium magnet sound
RE20 - Buzzy sounding not as smooth as sm7b and just overall meh... sibilence etc just... meh...
RE27 - Jesus christ this mic is not worth the money. Horrible. Just horrible. Bought 2 of these but just lame mics...
Blue Snowball - Bright mic have to talk into it close like a dynamic. Kinda cool.
