Taken at DVBBS' apartment in Toronto, you can see the UA 6176 Channel Strip centre of the photo placed on a stand in between Chris' monitors.

"Yes. I use Reaper for everything. I love Reaper. During the process for Dive, Cakewalk just wasn’t working anymore for my flow. As far as preamps went, pretty much everything was the UA 6176 vintage channel strip, plus UA 610 preamps and a UA 2-1126 compressor on the end. And then I used a Chameleon Labs 7602 MKII (microphone preamp) for the grindier parts of stuff that I had to push harder, which is like a solid state. And I also used things like Ursa Major (Space Station) reverb, and some analog space-echo delays."more
