Re: New studio setup

More seriously...

I'm not sure if it's the angle of the camera, but the monitor on the right looks to be farther away from the center of the desk than the monitor on the left.    Near field monitors like the Rokits sound their very best when they are set up in an equilateral triangle with your head as one point, and the monitors as the other two.   It seems trivial, but I've found just a few inches of movement in one of the monitors makes a huge difference in how they are heard.

Re: New studio setup

Looks very organized Russell, if I had a studio I would like it too look that way,first I need too get me some recording goodies and a good voice.I fear I will never have the voice. I am practicising lead in riffs and things like that so some day I can post something too my youtube.

I have my peanuts to the left, Pistachios! and my new monitor is a 32 inch the one pictured is 23 I use a hdmi  cable to go direct from my laptop to my tv and run it through my surround sound via a light fiber sounds really nice. hope you have a nice holiday season Phill smile

Re: New studio setup

Gotta keep the peanuts & pistachios handy, so you don't go nuts! Seriously, that's a very functional setup you've got there, and you really know how to use it well.

ACOUSTICS:  Cordoba D10-CE / LaPatrie "Concert" / Takamine GD30CE-12 / Norman ST30
ELECTRICS:  EP Les Paul Custom Pro / Gretsch Streamliner G2420T
AMPS:  Traynor YCS50 / Peavey VK212 / Traynor AM150T
EFFECTS: Boss ME-80 Multi-effects / Ibanez WD7 wah

Re: New studio setup

Very nice Russell. I am always working on making my space better. I am adding a Voicelive a Play Acoustic and haven't yet figured where I want it. It's all about ease of use.

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

Re: New studio setup

no matter how good the gear is, it's the fingers and the talent that makes it good. unfortunately my fingers are stiff and my talent has yet to emerge.....

ps. i have a drawer to my left with jelly babies in for when i need a sugar rush. their the soft british jelly babies. there is a story of the beatles that goes; they were on their first US tour and let it slip that they loved jelly babies, but the US ones are hard! not fun getting pelted with hard boiled sweets!
