Imagine you have the perfect studio and the perfect control room. What next? How do you work? do you follow the signal path and start with a great mic collection, then pre's then a desk etc? I can take care of the mic collection but what is the ultimate desk? I'm not too bothered about features, I'm after sound quality! I guess this means analog. Add a collection of stunning mic pres and outboard gear. Is a Studer 2" the way to go? Add a DAW into the equation. Then what? What are the best monitors out there? I've used the big, soffit mounted mains before but they seem to me to be only for show. I tend to work from nearfields apart from when I need to impress a client. Have I missed anything? Cheers!
