    It might be a headphone mixer.

    I haven't seen anything that looks EXACTLY like that, but I have seen similar devices in studios, usually headphone mixers. Some digital control modules have been mounted like that as well, though I doubt that is what that particular device is, unless that is his home studio . . . and that looks too elaborate a room to be his home studio.

    It's a probably a personal headphone monitor/mixer....allows for each person to personally customize their own can mix. Most studios have 'em, it helps bring that "live studio" recording vibe to situations where amps are isolated and people are recording direct and what not..
