Have you tried the Phil Spector approach and waved a gun in the air? But really, if its a client just listen to what they are trying to say. I always try to explain the reason I think I (we) should do something and why I (we) might not want to instead of telling them "no we can't do that". For examp...

I can hear it now "Do I really need a nice mic, can't I just use my shirt?"

So I imagine 2 plain old cat-5 splitters would work then? If I split it into two thats all I would really need since I could daisy chain them once they are in the two rooms. Has anyone tried this or no any reason why that wouldn't work?

Thanks for the replys. I don't really need the ability for them to make their own headphone mix and I was actually going to not let most of them and only really wanted it because it might be useful to have if it wasn't to much extra. Looking at the pictures on the Furman website the HDS-6 only has 2...

Thanks, that helps a lot. Ive got a Tac scorpion so I have 4 aux's to work with but I was planning on mostly just sending clients a stereo headphone mix and only use the other channels if I really need to. Its mostly a future proofing issue. My only concern with the HDs-6 now is the whole daisy chai...

Headphone system advice needed.

Im looking at getting a new headphone monitoring system for my studio. As of now Im looking at the Furman Ha-6ab and the Furman HDS-6. I was hoping some people who have used these could give me some opinions on the quality of them. Things like how powerful they are (I do a lot of metal where drummer...

Liberation Power Supply

So I just traded a client studio time for a Moog Liberation. This is the Moog keytar, but the problem is that the external power supply/break out box was stolen so Im going to have to try to make one. To get thing rolling on making a permanent one I was wondering if I could just wire in a wall wart ...

It seemed a little high to me too. I would be a little more likely to buy it if he went down alittle. It wasnt even in good shape. He told me he'll have a tech fix it up for cheap and sell it on ebay for $200 bucks. I polity told him good luck!

Akia Roberts

So I found an Akia/Roberts tube two channel recorder at a music store near me for $150 bucks. When I say $150 I mean the guy wont budge. I would be using it as a preamp and not a recorder but does that seem like a decent deal or kind of high? Just thought I'd see what other people have paid for them...

However, in 100 years from now, I have no doubt this will near totally replace certain "formula mixers", that produce the same sounding material for everyone who uses them anymore. There might even be a plugin for it. Twisted Evil
It won't replace them it will just make them programmers instead...
