Studio setup – Version 2 in 2022!

My updates in 2022, that has occurred over most of 2021, includes the SSL UF8 and SSL UC1 that I use for mixing. These two gears have simply enhanced my work flow during mixing.

  • SSL UF8
  • SSL UC1
  • Maschine MK3
  • Komplete Kontrol S88
  • Seaboard Rise 49 (tucked in the top tray – above the S88)
  • Yamaha Studio Monitors HS8

Audio Routing in my setup is as follows:

  • My primary audio interface is Universal Audio Apollo x16. Output (16 channels) from this interface is fed into a summing mixer.
  • External inserts in the Summing Mixer (2BUS+ by Dangerous Music) includes a Portico II Master Buss Processor by the legendary Rupert Neve and a BAX EQ by Dangerous Music.
  • ConvertD+ features in my signal chain to print my audio track through this digital to analog converter.
  • Neve 1073 SPX PreAmp that receives audio signal from a Manley Ref C Microphone
