“The whole thing started with the guitar riff,” Chris explains, “a big heavy metal-sounding thing. We basically got a click going, then we recorded the riff. I like tube gear, so I use a Mesa/Boogie TriAxis for the big sounds, and also a Marshall JMP-1 [both rack modules]. They’re the best sounding and most natural recording boxes I’ve found for guitar. I use a Line 6 Pod too, but more for the clean stuff.” For this track, the guitar was recorded through the TriAxis into a Neve mic pre, into a Yamaha 02R, and onto the Apogee Rosetta AD en route to Pro Tools. “I tend to use the Neve channel for guitars,” says Chris, “the APIs for drums, and the Summit TD-100s and GMLs for synths.”more
"My audio interface is provided by a MOTU 24I/O, and I have a 16-fader Mackie Logic Control and the Samson C-control, which is just a monitor controller and talkback. The Mackie is fantastic for orchestral mixing, when you need to move lots of faders at once. If I had more space, I'd have more of these, because they're brilliant. My master clock is a Rosendahl Nanosyncs, which makes a huge difference for digital playback. I used to have a Yamaha 02R, and it made it sound like a desk five times the price, because the clocking got so much better, all the jitter was gone, and imaging was razor-sharp."more
"I use Cubase running on a 3GHz Pentium 4 and a gig of RAM. It's on a network and I've got about a terabyte of hard disk space. I've got a MOTU 2408, but it's not my ideal choice because I run two Yamaha O2Rs slaved together. So the 2408 has 24 channels of ADAT and the whole thing is linked up digitally. There's not analog in there at all, except for my sends and returns, so if I want to use some nice compressors and some nice EQs I can do that. Effects-wise, I still have far too many of them to warrant having them. There are still a couple of choice pieces that I come back to time and again: The Urei 1178 and Tube-Tech EQs."more
