Unlike the drawing shown above, I record all audio digitally with SoundForge Pro, Vegas Pro
software is used for multitrack audio production and internet video production. A custom
upgraded Lenovo H50 desktop computer with solid state hard drive is the digital nerve center,
if you will. Along with the production software, it’s loaded with a wide assortment of
video and audio effects plug-in’s. Windows 10 is the operating system.
A Behringer Xenyx Q802 audio mixer is also the analog-to-digital converter and has proven to be
quite the little work horse in my broadcast quality home studio. The Behringer includes a super
quiet 48v phantom power supply mic preamp.
The mic closet is stocked with an Audio Technica AT-2020 (USB studio condensor mic),
Audio Technica ATR2100 (USB/XLR stick mic), CAD Audio GXL2200, Electro-Voice 635A (classic stick mic),
MXL 990 (secondary mic), MXL V67G, MXL R144 (ribbon), Rode NT-1 (primary mic), Rode NTG1 condensor
shotgun, Sterling Audio ST51 and a few other goodies.
OUTBOARD ANALOG GEAR (partial list): Aphex Model 303 Aural Exciter,
Fostex model 3070 Compressor/Limiter, JVC TD-W354 Cassette deck,
Otari DTR-8S DAT Recorder, Otari MTR-10 Reel-to-reel, Tascam 32 Reel-to-reel,
Teac X-1000R Reel-to-reel, Technics SP-15 turntable and a variety of styli
to accomodate audio restoration from 33 1/3, 45 and 78 RPM discs,
including 16” radio transcription discs.
And yes, the promotional caricature of myself from 1976 not only illustrates that a studio
was once crammed with necessary analog audio gear…it proves that once upon a time
I did, indeed, have a head full of hair!
