gear

We all know: It's the ear, not the gear!

 

Nonetheless, here is some of the stuff I use in the studio (and live, sometimes), which I can also provide for sessions on location.

(Of course, everything in alphabetical order, as usual.)

 

MICS:

AKG C411 PP

AUDIX D2/D4/D6 &  I5

Audio Technica ATM230

Beyerdynamic M88TG & M201TG

Electrovoice RE320 & PL6

Haun MBHO440 (pair of super nice SDCs)

Heil PR20

Sennheiser e606 / e614 / MD421 (x3) / MD 441 (x2)

Shure b52a / b57a (x2) /  KSM8 / sm58 (x5) / b91 / b91a

Superlux S502 (ORTF)

Telefunken MD21 (omni) & MD421

T.Bone RB500 (x3)

Oktava MK012 + omni caps (x2)

 

+ various Radial DIs

 

IN & OUT OPTIONS:

Soundgrid:

Allen & Heath SQ5 +  GX4816 - 64 inputs (w/mic pres) @ 96k with up to 13 stereo monitor mixes

Digigrid IOS XL  - 8 mic pres / 8 line outs / 2 HP outs @ 96k + a  massive Waves Soundgrid server.

usb:

Allen & Heath SQ5 - 32 channels of I/O @ 96k via USB

Behringer X32 - budget friendly solution for 32 channels of I/O @ 48k and is also super compact (a 4U rack) in this config:

Behringer X32 core + Midas DL32 

 

DAW: 

I tend to use Tracks Live for live recording and Logic Pro X for studio work, but can also work in ProTools or Cubase if you prefer.

 

MONITORING:

KS Digital C55 (studio)

Vision Ears VE6 (IEM)

various headphones  (AKG 171, Sennheiser HD25, Sony MDR7506,...)

 

PROCESSING:

More plugins (Waves, Soundtoys, Fabfilter, PSP, Eventide, Klanghelm...) than I could ever need, and some real analog gear.

 

BACKLINE:

I also have a few guitars (Danelectro, Fender, Hagström, Ibanez, Squier...), a beautiful Mustang bass, some tube amps (Genz Benz ElDiablo, Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, Marshall JCM800), and a selection of stomp boxes around.

If you really want to get into it, I trust these guys to provide anything you may need for any session (or tour!).
