Jesse.....thats just too funny, never really been a fan of Bart, perhaps I missed something.....still, Ive been laughing all evening.
Anyway...Dude, your a short, hop, skip & a jump away from this. You do have the equipment, its just a few tweaks away. This setup reflects trying to adhere to the classic console style approach, substituting the Daw for the console . I have scaled the environment back so every thing is in arms reach, most of the action, so to speak, takes place between the Matrix 12, Rack & Virus TI, the Andromeda and Juno play some what of a supporting role. I don't use any soft synths...currently.
Its kind of emotional to lay out the evolution of a studio.....Lots of good memories, lots of good sounds I miss. Having setup the mastering side of things it complete ruined/spoiled me for everyday monitoring. I wish I could indulge in that kind of sound for the pleasure. I did find monitors that could deliver the accuracy for mixing and a sparkle of that sweet elixir sound audiophile speakers bring.....
