I'm back, I'm tired and I'm broke Confused

We had alot of rain in Abaco and here in Nassau but my contractor still got alot done. Most of the rafters are up and they are starting on the gable. Of course I left my camera in Abaco so I wont be able to send pics till next week.

Franman I thought of you a couple times, we went diving conch  Very Happy
The first time my wife and I dove 43 in about 15' the second time we got 15 before we got chased out the water from a 5' barracuda Shocked . We also did some bottom fishing in the back of Man-o-War cay and Great Guana cay. All and all had a great time.

Any one know a good place to get quality wall panels? I want to put 8-10 Mic, a couple instrument and headphone jacks.
Thanks,
Clifford.

So Franman, do you eat conch?

Also, wouldnt it make more sense to use a Ductless AC system?
No duct noise and only a 2" hole in the wall.

Wall Panels:: We have all of ours made custom by a great guy in Pittsburgh: Alumagraphics. He also makes all the metal work for our Griffin products.. On a more affordable and generic note, Middle Atlantic makes a great series of modular 2U hi connector panels called UCP

http://www.middleatlantic.com/rackac/main.htm#ucp

HVAC: If by 'ductless' you mean a mini-split which is very popular in the Carribean, like a system with a wall mounted fan unit and a compressor outside... we find these to be too noisy for actual studios. They are awesome for machine rooms and closets. If you mean one of those new high pressure (mini duct) systems, I can't really recommend those either. I know a few guys who tell me they've had good success with them, but I don't trust the concept to be quiet AND deliver enuf air for a hot environment with constant heat load from gear, etc...

"Signal Transport"  looks great, thanks.
I am putting boxes/panels on 3 walls in the live room, what inputs should I put in them?
I was thinking 10 Mic,4 instrument and 4 headphone.
Thanks,
Clifford.

Well, you need to think very carefully through what your needs are now, and what you expect they might be in future, and then add more than that, because somehow there's never enough of anything.

How many instruments will you ever be recording at one time?  How many mics?  How many players needing headphones?  Are the "4 headphone" outputs cue lines for downstream boxes (Furman, etc.) or are they to plug phones directly into?  Will you ever be wanting to have an amp cab in the studio whilst the head is in the CR, thereby necessitating a hi-Q spkr line or 2?  Will you ever need special lines for running "odd" temporary equipment, such as a drum throne thumper?  Will you ever want speaker playback into the studio rather than headphones?  Any extra tie-lines you can think of?  Do you expect the Nassau Symphony at any point, with 100 chairs full of out-of-tune screeching?

There's a lot to imagine here.

This is what I'm figuring;

4 wall boxes/panels
each having-

16 x Mic

2 x hi-Q (for amp heads in CR)

2 x 1/4" instrument (for guitars in CR to amps in live room)

2 x pairs L/R input (keyboards)

1 x cat 3 or better Ethernet/RJ-45 connectors (headphones)furman HDS-6/HR-6.

1 x pair 1/4" L/R playback monitors.

? x MIDI

? x firewire.

any thoughts or suggestions? Confused

Thanks,

Clifford.

Clifford - here's what i posted on John's site:
i'd add 8 midi and 8 keyboard lines. this gives you 4 stereo pairs and a send-receive for 4 midi keyboards. i'd go with CAT 6 on the network wires since that supports gigabit speeds and i'd use 2 of those per panel since today you're thinking just the Furman's but somebody somewhere will want another one... use wireless for providing folks with network access... i'd add 2 firewire and 2 USB lines as well.
