Man, if that doesn't bring a smile to your face, I don't know what will. Inward Connections built this custom all-tube console for 16 Ton Studios in Nashville. There's a bit about it, and a couple more pictures in this thread at Gearslutz.
The old-school faders with new-school blue LEDs are my favorite feature. Man, I bet this thing sounds like heaven. I have a small amount of experience with the Inward Connections sidecars, and I can only imagine... ATC monitors round out the picture. Fuck. I mean, seriously.
Thanks to antiguru for pointing out to me that I should have noticed this.
Oof. For some reason, it's more impressive to see the backs than the fronts. (Thanks, rasmus_nyaker)
We're still a little stumped on the VST side; we're not sure what works where yet, and we're literally in the dark until we have a UB version of Cubase/Nuendo to test on. If you read the VST dev mailing list, you'd know that most all OSX VST developers are currently schtonked by Steinberg's decision to completely throw us for a loop. This should be entertaining.
This is an easy one, and almost certainly to good result. Cigarboxguitars.com has lots of information about how to build and play a cigar-box guitar, including making it electric via a piezo transducer or winding your own pickups. Serious fun here, especially if you're in to DIY effects and circuit-bending. Instead of a cigar box, use an empty Speak 'n' Spell case, and build effects in it. You'll be the life of the party.
