I received so many great responses from my last post. You guys have a great vision for your ultimate console design. Let me share with you the one-of-a-kind ‘Sea Foam Green’ Frankenstein desk that Steve Vai and I designed with Tree Audio. It’s 32-ch with 1-16 having two rows of 500 series buckets, 17-24 being Neve 1073/1084 buckets, & 25-32 being 8 channels of custom mic pre/eq modules that Steve Firlotte built specifically for this desk. The channel control modules (aux, pan,etc) are located on top which allows the mic pre, compressor,& eq buckets to be right at arms reach for easy tweaking. The line input and monitor section are running the pristine SPA 690 opamps for clarity and high headroom and the summing stage is running the beautifully colorful VF600 opamps. There are cinemag transformers throughout. To make this all work there is a rack full of different power supplies that accommodate the different voltages that each bucket requires. It took quite a lot of thought and many many hours of dedication from the Tree Audio team to make this work to our satisfaction. I must say that it’s exceeded all expectations.
