We finally moved the PC we are using for Cubase editing into the control room and got it linked in through the big Mackie! Also, we put the pool table in the live room on wheels so it can move out of the way. Please let me know what you think.
OK..we moved again. This time to an new location with a better alignment for control room to sound room and a built in vocal booth. Everything is a work in progress again, but here are the results so far...
Thanks...the monitors have been moved and they are better! The computer is located just to the left of the Mackie 32x8 under the desk the monitor is sitting on. Multi-track recording is done on an Alesis HD-24 24 track hard drive recorder and mixed down through the Mackie to either the computer for mastering, or to an Akai DR4-d, or to a Tascam CD-RW700 directly to CD.
Alright, now we have an Eleven Rack, a full copy of Pro Tools 10 and a very nice rack mounted computer built by Sweetwater to run them through on the way to the studio this week!!! Can't wait to get them in an post some pictures here!
Stevieb...it seemed like a good idea at the time. A better idea was what we finally did, which was to move the entire studio into a new area. You can see some of the photos of the new area above...nice wood floors and vaulted cealing for the tracking room and a better alignment for the control room, with an isolation booth built in. So, the pool table is back on solid footing in its own game room again
