    Dude, is that a real paper bag? You guys are high rollers.

    Good eye, and thank you for noticing. That is indeed genuine brown paper – none of that synthetic crap. We don’t mess around when it comes to tone.

    Let's get this thread up to 150 pages!

    I, for one, appreciate your high-end interconnect system between control room and live room. Is that custom made?

    We custom stretched the cord farther than it was probably ever meant to. I think that counts.

    I don't even feel like I should post on this site anymore. Y'all are too rich for my blood.

    Please don't be too discouraged. Stick with it, and maybe some day you too can mix from a table made from a keyboard stand and bulletin board pulled off of the wall. :thumbsup:

    Ew, this is a thread about our high-end studio setup, not our old studio setup. :rollno:

    I dunno, I don't see a HPF, a short scale bass, flatwounds, tort pickguards, Fender Rumble, a carrot, shorts, flip flops, hats, sunglasses, but I DO see beers while you play, so you've at least hit one of the hot button talkbass issues.

    Wow - a real MacBook! We use a hackintosh and some software clone called "Garbage Band", which the good lady says is highly appropriate!

    Well I, for one, am impressed.
    My home studio setup, as detailed in this thread (I thought I'd share... ), is a lot less high tech.
    I do however also have a brown paper bag.
    You can't see it 'cos I'm not into the whole humble-brag thing.

    Now, more importantly, let's hear what you guys produced...

    Nice touch having Greg Lake's own Persian rug on the wall.

    That and your vinyl album awards.

    Are those the keys to your Mercedes or Jaguar or whatever Record Producer luxury car you own?

  20. It really ties the room together.

    This all reminds me of a session I did 2 years ago, which was probably much less high-endy than yours. I was sharing a booth with the drummer and the keyboardist and the headphone amp was set on a chair in the middle. The studio had run out of good headphones so I had to make-do with crappy earbuds, with the cord stretched to the max. Still turned out OK, though.
