“Lots of good stuff in here. I use Pro Tools HD and Apogee converters - the converters sound better than the computer sound card. Monitor-wise, I switch between a pair of Barefoot speakers, Yamaha NS-10s and tiny Optima speakers.
“In the rack on the left is a bunch of gear made by Retro: a 2A3, which is a Pultec-style equalizer; a Stay-Level compressor; and a Retro 176 compressor. Underneath those is a DVD player and a Tascam CD player.
“Next to the patch bay are a couple of Helios modules. They’re vintage, like the kind used in the Rolling Stones’ mobile truck back in the day.
“On the top rack on the right are a couple of BAE 1028 mic pre/EQ modules, a Urei 1176 limiter and a Teletronix LA-2A compressor. Next to those are two Neve compressors out of a Neve mixing board.
“Under those items we’ve got a Brent Averill mic pre, which is from parts of a Neve 1272; a Brent Averill 1073 mic pre; and then there’s an API rack of equalizers. Next to that is a Brent Averill/API rack of mic pre's. Going down from there are GML 8200 mastering EQs – they're kind of the industry standard. Below them are two Empirical Labs Distressors, and below those is a Transient Designers by SPL Finally, we have an Alan Smart stereo compressor and a Drawmer noise gate.
"Next to that rack is another one with a TC reverb and delay and a Filter Factory. Below those units I’ve got two V76M modules made by Telefunken, which are incredible sounding. And then there's two Telefunken V72s and an Aphex Aural Exciter - an old one.
“On the wall I have two props from a movie set that a friend gave to me. Hey, it is Hollywood, you know?”
