I had one in a 2 car garage-sized space that was a one room control/live room. It was on opposite side of where the mics were, up high on the wall. I would say it was about as loud as my sound dampened PC that was also in the room. I could definitely hear the mics picking it up on headphones between...

Your ideas all sound like good ones and you need someone to help combine them into a system. Building into the hill and something like a living roof could be very cool. Waterproofing will be as important (more!) as soundproofing. I built a studio at our last house from the ground up. It had some of ...

The most recent thing I had seen about it (last time I looked which was a month or two ago, I don't know what's out there since then) was this video from Lynx. The whole video is interesting, but they talk a bit about routing around 12:05, and around 12:50 they talk a bit about (and show) the mixer...

edit: just saw you mentioned the Lynx Aurora 16. I tried it but the console app did not seem quite as flexible to me as the UA Apollo. They've got a new console app for the thunderbolt/AES cards (I believe it's AES too, positive about the thunderbolt as it's what I'm switching to). It looks a lot m...

the arrangement and vocal lines really reminded me of Homogenic by Bjork. Good stuff.

I weighed this too and ended up with this SM Pro Audio amp. I really love it. At first I used my board's aux sends, then when I had more conversion i/o I used PT sends. You can use it a couple of different ways. The first is a 2 mix + "more me" which I think is how they intend to use it. Alternative...

i used clerestory windows in my last place. absolutely loved them. great light (natural, non-direct), provided a great panorama, and had basic security function - they were up high, small, and largely fixed. what i learned (similar to others): -by far, most bang for buck is laminated, DIY assemblies...

I am reading this as you saying that JW's posts are 50% "not useful", and I'm calling you out on that. I think your post is more a commentary on the state of these boards than anything else. Now that there are fewer knowledgeable people posting on here Jim's posts stand out even more. Many of them ...

Waste of time and space. I will give the benefit of the doubt that Jim's posts overall are 50/50 useful/crotchety. And I am being generous in weighting the value of the useful posts over the real estate taken up by irrelevant posts. Yes, the alternative for potential consumers of this ~$500 compact ...
