So what's in your studio?

I love to see others' workspaces - where they weave their craft. Show us your studio setup and discuss your favorite toys for making all that noise!

Still a simple one,  got myself a Vox AC-15C1 combo,  also on its way is a Vox AC-4TV....for my panning delay and such:)
Use Nuendo as recording suite.
Right now I use the onboard POS sound card....hopefully I'll have a better one soon for this thing!

I have to take some pictures and post. I've cleaned up a lot and made quite a few changes to my setup.

My trusty old 2003 PC went kapput two months ago. Still getting used to mighty Win7 and this new PC. But after visiting vettaville.nl looks like my old XTL and Line 6 Edit are slowly working about. I miss Audacity 1.2.6, but that´s alright, :D

I have to post some pics,.but I have a liquid cooled dedicated PC just for recording that never see's the internet. Sound cards are Presonus Fire Studios (firewire) with zero latency into Sonar 8.5 producers out to KRK Rokit 8s and just about every plugin you can imagine,.LOL. Secondary speakers are Altec Lansing 5.1s.  Room has been treated with IK Multimedia ARC- (Advanced Room Correction System). Very useful and if you don't have this,.you should see about getting it. It's a blessing to get your mixes right the first time.

Johnny, what do you think of the KRKs. My next purchase will be a set of monitors and I really don't know where to begin.

To be honest,.I think the Yamaha NS10's are the way to go man. They are the standard,.but I wanted to try the KRK8s. I have to say I A/B-ed them against the NS10s when I purchased them and the KRKs have more bottom but that's about it and they are clear and can get loud.  But,.. if you are shopping, go with the NS10s IMO. Oh and also get IK Multimedia ARC. It is floating around for download somewhere!!??.
Alot of guys are using the Behringer ECM8000 condenser mic and getting the same result as buying the plugin. But,.I'm sure it would be more accurate if you got the real deal. One more thing man,.you should get a sub also. Big difference. My mix are usually bass heavy due to not having a sub,..so I'm always adding to much low end,.because that's what I'm hearing from my monitors. I'm going to be adding a sub soon,.so I don't get this issue any longer.

Thanx for the info Johnny. I'm really wondering if I should invest in monitors or just get a really nice set of headphones. Seems I can only mix with the cans on most of the time anyway with the kids in the house and I wouldn't have to treat the room.

That's a good idea if that's what you need to do. Just to set this straight,.when I mix I don't mix loud at all,.I mix at a low volume. This goes for Danny Danzi too,.we both mix at low volumes. It's not needed to mix at a volume that is crazy loud. A lot of guys mix with head phones,..but you need a good set phones that don't color the sound. I forget what Danny uses for phones. I would PM him and ask,.because he told me the phones he does use,..he gets good results. I know it's alot of funds to get monitors and a sub and get the software to treat the room,.but it's worth even if you buy a piece at a time,.because the end result is good solid mixes,....that don't change between any type of stereo, car stereo,.home theater and so on. It will sound the same on all players and you won't be going back and forth from you car or whatever saying,."shit" it has to much of this or that and also wasting time and CD's. Once you get it sounding good in the studio using ARC and a good set of monitors and a sub,..it will sound good anywhere. It's a big time saver.
