According to Fletcher (Mercenary guy) the only thing differnent with the Mercenary Edition is the color change, unlike other Mercenary gear which is designed to their specs.

Speaking of Mercenary Editions the Drawmer 1968 Tube Compressor is aaammmaaazzzziing for running whole mixes through.

I still can't understand why somebody so untech like me was drawn to this music so many years ago.I can barely turn on my computer and I've had a fax machine for two years and still can't get it to work.Oh,well guess I'll just have to go listen to Unity By J.J.

My Desk Finally Arrived

I thought I'd share two pictures of my newly assembled studio. I'm just a hobbyist...so don't laugh too hard when you see it.  :)





Now the real education begins.  :)

Peace,

Jim

Nothing funny about your studio... looks really nice to me.   I like your desk - I think I looked at some similar ones a few years ago when I needed to get a new desk - ended up getting something not specialized for music, but it worked out well enough.

That's a clean and efficient looking operation there Gemini. Best wishes to you for much joy in creation.
What happened to Saul Stokes photos? I liked the gear and the artwork!
Thanks for posting the photos people.
Peace, Kirk

(I'm recreating Saul's post in this thread where it belongs. APK)

I think I'm late with this but I thought I would post a few pics of my studio which is really a closet.

cheers,

Saul

After extensive room calcs and adding in new 703 bass traps and new 703 broadband traps, I've managed to clean up enough of the mixing area of my studio 1st....this picture shows the new corner bass traps and the new broadband trap on the front wall. I'll keep the heavy tapestry on the front wall, because it helps with taming front wall reflections, just need to re-align it into the center of the mix position. What you can't see is  the 2nd broadband panel directly behind the mix position, that helps with rear reflections. Ohhh, you also cannot see the absolute mess the rest of the studio is in either....After I did the room calcs and got my monitors and mix position out of all frequency nodes, I had to re-arrange everything...

The center of the monitors bass cone are 23" off the front wall and 43" off the floor..as well as positioned horizontally out of node positions form the side walls. The mix position is 67" off the front wall, with my ears aligned with the center of the bass cones. All these positions keep the mixing stage out of as many nodes and frequency harmonics as possible in order to improve mix quality.

"what the hell is he talking about" is probably what your saying..:)

This equates to a massively improved stereo field, and stereo separation, much better frequency response from the monitors, the monitors are not working as hard, and above all else greatly improved mixing and tracking. Mixes out of this new station are like night and day as compared to older mixes. Bad mixes really sound bad now, as I can hear all the frequency overlap issues, as well as bad stereo panning choices. Great mixes are much easier to attain and sitting at the mix station for 10-12 hours at a shot are very easy on the ears. Everything sound better!!!

Oh, crap... my monitors' base cones are only 21.9" off the front wall -- I am so screwed!

Seriously, thanks for posting this James.

:)

everyone's frequency nodes and frequency harmonics are different..it's all based on the room dimensions and such...so please EVERYONE do not simply set-up your stuff using my dims.....each room will come up with different calcs.....:) as well as different treatments to deal with specific frequencies within the room..."tuning a room" is pretty complex....this set-up took me about a month to layout properly..and in reality..I still need more broadband absorption on the side walls....you can never have too much..:)

Thanks for contributing, and bumping this topic up, Caul/Brett.  This is one of my favorite topics on this Forum and I had forgotten about it!  My studio looks exactly the same as in those pictures back on page 1, still.
