Hi Guys, Thought I would put up and open ended question on what to buy next with the money I was going to use for HD upgrade. I run a small/med studio in OZ, I have 5 recording areas, I normally try to keep everything tracked live if I can(I keep a lot of vox). So I only switch pres for Overdubs. I do rock/pop guitar based bands mainly. I canceled my HD upgrade as no plugs ready and will wait until the dust settles. I have at the moment: (sorry about the length thought I would put it all down) ISA430 (well getting it next week), Rode Classic II for Vox Rode getting replaced with either a Soundelux U95s/U99/Brauner Valvet if they come in next week hopefully. UA 2-610 for Guitar room's with M160 ribbons Amek 9098 OH, with 2 rode NTK's Buzz Audio Kick/Snare, AT25 kick, AT23e Snare Neve moded line module pre for Floor(md441)/room(at3527 Omni). Sm57 second mic in both guitar rooms Bass Pod for bass Control24 pres for hats(km85), tom1(beyer tgx10),tom2(sen 604) , bottom snare(KM85). No other outboard apart from preamps. That was why I got the ISA430 for vocals. KRK V6 and Alesis Sub, Tannoy home speakers, Some roger type clones. PT system Mix cube. Only 882/20 and 1622 converters.(that was why I jumped at HD upgraded) Plugins: Sony EQ, McDsp MC2000,BF LA2/1176,Fairchild,pultec, Channelstrip, DUY max,tape,valve,shape, Reverb One, D2,D3,ampfarm, autotune, Wavemechanics ultra pack.. Backline: Pearl BLX 8 piece Birch kit, Brass 5" by 14" , 3" by 14" Maple 3" by 13, DW maple 6.5" by 14. Zildjian cymbals, Paiste Hats Soldano Rerverb o Sonic. Marshall JCM800, Line6 Flextone XL. Ibanez Bass, G&L ASAT, G&L Z3 thinline, Maton acoustic, plus other guitars. There a few things I am looking at so I thought would leave it open and see what you guys think. Yes I know the converters are not great, I just think that the money might be better spent on outboard that does not need updating every 2 years. The HD upgrade to HD3, 192k 16in 8out, 96k 8 in/out and plugins upgrade would cost around US$11-$12,000. The ISA cost $3,000. the mic is around $2,000 so another $6,000 to play with. Sorry again for the extra long post.
