Organizing your studio rack

Friends,

I have a couple of new EQ's coming into my home studio, so I thought I would search the database to catch any new tips on how to best integrate them into my studio rack.  A troubling post came up, it suggests you should never mix audio interfaces (DSP & Clocking) in your studio rack with hi end pre-amps, compressors & eq's. Now I've recorded 100's of albums in my studio with those devises on top of each other in the past 30 years, I have never had a problem and I have never heard of this.  How could this be a problem if my Apogee & Motu interfaces both have mic preamps along with Clocks & DSP's?

The only trouble i see is if they are racked close with no space in between, it could cause thermal buildup. The ua Apollo reccomends something like 2 or 4 rack spaces between it and other devices.


What better to have near your interface than a hi end pre, comp, and eq?

Ive never had issues with that stuff near the apogee and motu converters at the studio.

No, I definitely give the tubes room to breathe at least 1 rack space, I was just surprised Ive always heard try to keep audio cables as far away from electrical cords as possible. Just thought I would put it out there.
