Finally moved into my new place. Took the time to setup the music things today. Supper happy with the result.

It's in my living room so I wanted it to look pretty.

Wife and I took a trip to Ikea and put together this desk and chair for cheaps. Still have some setup to do but it's a decent little space.

Looks nice! I still need a new desk and a synth stand but the music room is slowly getting better organised.

tidied up in Audacity on an old Compac PC running Vista ;)

I do have a paid for copy of Reaper and some drum software but I rarely use any of it.


I hadn't realised I posted to this thread - two years later and the recording process is still the same:

DR-07 -> Audacity -> Windows Movie Maker -> YouTube

I don't have a stable recording config or process; I record with different workflows almost every single time. It depends what and where I'm recording, and what I want to do, but an example flow for tracking an electric guitar with the pictured gear might be something like:
1) Guitar into the Rupert Neve DI to capture a DI recording; I'll also send the Thru to a Hi-Z input on the Apollo x6 so I can apply something to the sound at this stage (maybe just for monitoring or maybe track that along with the DI).
1a) Anytime you're micing into an Apollo, if you use the Unison technology (say, a pre-amp) to emulate impedances, gain stage behaviours, etc., then that's a 'commit' that can't be subsequently unwound.
2) The DAW I use is Ableton Live 10, using the Apollo x6 as the interface.
3) The x6 has S/PDIF in/out so I'm able to connect the Helix Floor and re-amp the DI signal through that if I want, using that to model amps/cabs/mics/effects and come back on a virtual channel in UAD Console, and back into Live; the Helix is essentially "hairpinned" in this configuration, not used as an interface but just to loop tracks through, if desired.
4) I use a Radial JCR to re-amp the DI track through various IRL/physical amps and cabinets I have, and mic that with different mics...and back into the Apollo. I commented on a separate thread about the power of the Townsend Labs L22 Sphere (and alternatives) for mic modeling.
4a) I also use a Radial EXTC for re-amping through different IRL/physical stomp boxes and rack effects chains...and back into the Apollo.
5) Monitoring is a bit of an issue for me at this workstation because this room is not properly treated for acoustics, so I take a "defence in depth" approach. The Adam A7Xs are the primary monitors here but the Sennheiser HD650 and Audio Technica ATH-M50x phones provide different perspectives. The Auratones are famous for this purpose (shit on their own but ruthlessly efficient for exposing mix-down problems), so that's why they're there. The final source of truth though would never be this room; everything is always played back through a proper audiophile rig in a different room.
6) Once I'm "in the box" then it's a whole 'nother world of plugin/software joy...a topic for a different thread...
Of course, sometimes I might just crank an amp and put a mic or two in front of the cab(s), take that into the x6, sprinkle a little Unison dust on it, and get cracking on the software side. Other instruments would be different.
