Any other exotic gear freaks out there? I'm heavily into using my H.Gieling EAB re-85 8 ch. tube console with a Studer J-37 tube 4 track with a compliment of PYE, WSW, Telefunken, TAB, and finally a 16 ch. Helios console along with a Pro Tools rig. I see alot of people resorting to these "designer" pieces of equipment ie: Avalon, Manley, Focusrite, ect. this stuff just doesn't sound good to me. I would like to talk with more people who are into "real" sounds (remember The Beatles?).
