Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday!!!

by Chris Randall
 



Okay, refresh monkeys. It's here, you can relax! This week, we take a visit to the venerable and omnipresent Rob Acid, and his incredibly cozy and inviting studio. This is what my studio looked like, back when I had a lot of gear. I don't know 'bout you guys, but I could make a record in a room like this. Trainspotting: Rob has some good kit, as you can plainly see. Neumann, Pultec, Sontec, and Filtek EQs, EMT, BKE, Urei, and API compressors, and an Orville for Eventide Cred, along with some nice Westlake monitors. I'm embarassed to say I can't tell what kind of console that is. Obviously some German broadcast sort, of the kind I normally like and know about, but I can't place it.





You want synths? Rob's got synths. An Andromeda, an MS20, and an SH-101 in this pic. Visit his site for more pictures, where you'll see his MonoMachine, MachineDrum, 303, 909, etc. Rob also does mastering and pre-mastering for reasonable rates (get your track whacked through that API 2-buss comp for 45 euro), and has released several records on various labels.

Strike that last entry. It seems Cy is _not_ a hoax, after all. This story on CNET has the scoop:
