Gone are the Monomachine and Ebbe und Flut. :(

New kids on the block: Voyager RME, CP-251 + VX-352 in the rack, MF-102 + MF-104Z resting on the Virus. Proper patch cables on order and should arrive this week. Until then I'm making do with whatever instrument cables I have lying around.

A couple of quick snaps of the new setup:

My dog shed's so damn much.. You'd think she'd keep it in the winter but hell no, it's EVERYWHERE..

At least your buddies cat hasn't made his favorite piss spot right behind where you're stuff is set up.

Yea I have dogs as well that shed year round... I had to break down and get a Rainbow Vac $2000 the one that uses water to suc all the dirt/dust and I vac at least 3 times a week... He is fixed and I haven't seen or smelled any spots where he may have attempted to mark his territory ... Luckily also he hasn't chewed any cables or use my sub cover as a scratching post.....

i was surprised: the basic sound is pretty clear - nothing spectacular.
but you can color your sound by driving the tubes hotter, of course.

the mic pre´s really blew my mind! they sound very direct, like in your face, if
you know what i mean
- compared to the focusrite green series preamps in the saffire wich are quite good already,
the channel strips with the fine EQs are a huge qualitiy gain.

so, i like the fattrack very much
it sounds very good, has handy features, is flexible ond so on,
but its not as much as coloful as you may expect

i hope that helps

I didn't quite understand how the ADAT i/o is being used...
is it automatically routed to the stereo tracks ?
is it strictly intended for summing purposes ?

neither do i own the ADAT or firewire card,
just using the saffire as an interface

the user manual says:
"it (the DO8 ADAT interface) provides you with digital access to channel direct outputs, master stereo output,
4 stereo returns and channel line inputs."

so ...
you can use the channel strips as seperate MONO INs + the master output as a STEREO IN.
the OUTPUTS of the interface go to: the 2 Channel strip INs, and the 4 Stereo INs for the A, B, C, D Line Channels.

I guess the firewire solution works the same way, but i am not sure.

That's one serious piece of kit you got there.

I adore your cat too.

What model is that Euphonix?

Noice, I thought the 5MC had more faders, I guess it is customisable.

How well does Ableton work with Cubase in rewire?

that is a really nice producers desk..I bet your workflow is now twice or more fast

I am also looking at maybe getting getting a system 5-mc in 16 or 24 fader configuration

how is life with it??

a thing I dont know is.. does it have built-in preamps??
