Upgrade to my mixing studio – updated
21 April 2012
I recently upgraded my mixing studio in Tuscany with the sweetest and sexiest sounding compressor I have ever heard: the Inward Connections TSL 4 Vac rac.
Together with the TSL4, the core of my mixing setup is a Phoenix Audio Nicerizer 16ch summing amp, 2 API 527 comps (which I use as a parallel comp, mostly on drums) and The Thermionic Freebird EQ, which is wonderful. I miss mixing with the console, but this is a very good compromise and it gives me more control and recallability. I run the Pro Tools tracks into an Apogee Symphony and I built a patchbay to connect to my outboard and the Api lunchbox anytime I wish.
On April 2013 I added 2 Neve 2264 LB which i use a lot on the mixbuss or drums depending on songs (sharing these tasks with the api 527s), a Retro doublewide (beautiful on bass and vocals) and an API 5500 stereo Eq which also shares the buss eq or guitar eq with the Freebird, depending on type of music.
