that pic is making me think the acid just kicked in.

here's a pic of my new room. turned out pretty ok for a beginner carpenter if i do say so myself. clients are happy and so am i. i've had the same gear for years now and would love some new toys, but the budget got spent on the room so i'm making do with what i have and it's fine.

We've talked quite a bit over the years about the gear used in my room, hasn't really changed much, ...

Here's the desk as it stands right now:


Brad, I know there has been much discussion about all the different pieces of gear in your chain, however I don't think you've ever spoken about the chain as a whole. (If you have I don't ever remember reading about it.)

I know your transfer console can take devices in or out of the chain, but what is the order of your devices? Can you describe your reasoning as to why you choose to place some pieces earlier in the chain versus those that come later?

Hey Allen, sure, no problem.

My basic chain would be DAC -> Crane Song Ibis -> BPEQ -> Davelizer -> Pendulum OCL-2 -> Crane Song STC-8 -> Wedge EQ -> ADC

I like the Ibis first as if I'm going to use the HPF, I want to get rid of the junk first. The BPEQ and Davelizer would be interchangeable in the chain, but I use the BPEQ most of the time now so it's next. I tried the compressors both ways and just feel that the STC-8 is more of an 'averaging' type compressor, while the OCL-2 is great for that 'grabby' sort of compression, and I preferred the STC-8 last. Finally, the Wedge, which was designed to fit between the last compressor and the ADC as a 'makeup' shaping EQ, which is does perfectly.

Not rocket science, just a mix of playing with it and how I feel about stuff philosophically.

I've changed a few things since taking this photo. Sold the SPL and Chandlers and added an API 2500, Foote P3S and a Sontec 250C (soon to have stepped switches). Otherwise mostly the same.

I really dig that center console monitor controller / insert switcher

Very helios console type of vibe.


Is it custom made into the desk?  Or does it have a back? .. could be table top mounted?

That's a home brew. It's mounted to the sides of the racks and the guts are in an enclosure behind that faceplate. I like how it turned out.

Cool.

Seems like the general flow is most of the EQ'ing upfront, followed by compression (2 different flavors) with just a little touch-up EQ before the ADC.

I always imagined most folks with multiple EQ's and compressors would do some  sort of "EQ-comp-EQ-comp-EQ-comp" type of arrangement.

Hopefully others will post up their chain philosophies.

Hey Greg, do you still use those w395 EQ's?

...

I'll post pics here, soon. I've progressed with the cosmetic touch-ups in my new room, and I'm finally getting new stands here within two weeks or so.

Ah, not in the picture either. I think they were out of the rack when I was having them recapped. I do use them once in a while. They're great for adding bottom and the Präsenz band is cool. Never really liked the top as much as other options.
