“I set up two linked Mackie consoles in the live room into which we plugged all the equipment we were using – essentially an E-mu E-IVX Turbo; Akai MPC2000 and S3200; Supernova; Nord Modular and Nord Lead; Korg MS2000; Roland JV-2080; Access Virus; two Apple G3 laptops, running Cubase and Logic with VX pockets; and a G4/MotU 2408 running Logic. The laptops were also running Reaktor, PPG Wave 2.V, VB1 and Absynth. I had the same recording chain as in Herfordshire, of course, and I was very easily able to record any Mackie output. Everything was wordclock sync’d. Sometimes I referenced Apogee clock, sometimes Digidesign USD. We extensively used the TC Fireworx and M2000/M3000 on the monitors, and I was able to play the pre-production in different levels of detail depending on what Mark needed – everything was available to him, from individual parts to stereo backing tracks.more
