Just felt like showing off my recording setup. It's a Peavey Rock Master all tube preamp w/ a JJ ECC83 in V1, JAN Phillips 5751 in V2, and 9th generation Chinese 12AX7's in V3 and V4. Next in line is a Behringer UltraCurve Pro (DEQ2496). It's a dual digital 31 band EQ, 10 band parametric EQ, dynamic EQ, and a few other goodies. Very cool and versatile piece of gear. Then from there I go into a PODxt for cabinet and mic simulations only. Then I go into my computers soundcard via 1/4" line in. All of this gear will be featured in an up and coming collaboration that is currently in progress. Until then, I'll leave you with a picture of the "Rack of Tone" :D

Where'd you get a sound card with a 1/4 inch line in?

Nice setup bro. ;)
What software are you using to record with on your PC?
Here's a pic of my setup if you wanna check it out. I record mostly through USB via the GNX4. I use either Magix Studio 10 or Pro Tracks Plus. I also use sound forge 8 and fruity loops 5 but that's about it.

Not the 880 EX. The one we had at the studio I worked in had USB, but it was a 2000. I think the 880EX had to have come out maybe mid 90's or so? It still has SCSII connections so it has to be at least a decade old. It works very good though I just need a way to hook it to my PC. Hence the midi thing.

I've posted a couple of small songs. I haven't been playing much for the past couple of months since I was huntin so much but I'm gettin back at it so I should have some songs put together before too long. I've got some tracks already recorded and need to go back through them as well. :rolleyes:

Could you not buy a SCSII card for your pc and hook it up that way? I think that would work better than the MIDI connection?

Maybe but finding a SCSII card these days might not be the easiest task to accomplish. Our Radio Shack here in town don't have any.

Check out EBAY. You could probably get one for cheap there.

heres my setup-

LINK

small crappy picture i know, but its a dell inspiron laptop, 1gb ram, 80gb hdd, 2ghz proc, which i run reason 3, sonar 5, cubase LE, fruity loops 5 and adobe audition on. then theres an alesis multimix 8 usb mixer, u can also spot my ipod( the black htingy beside the laptop, its also a great external HDD), then theres my alesis photon 25 midi/usb keyboard, below that is my line 6 spider 2 112(i also have the 212 version, but only use it for live setups), things that aint in shot would be my studio projects b1 condenser mic and my ibanez rg770dx.only thing i want to really get now is some reference speakers, the headphones i use are relatively good but speakers would give me a much better idea of my final sound.

and to listen to the first track ive recorded with my spanking new setup(it aint all finnished yet tho) click this link, its the song entitled "new, still not finnished", the rest were done on my old setup-

SONG LINK

would love to know what y'all think

Nice setup there. From what I could hear of the song, it sounded real nice (kept re-buffering ever few seconds).

Here's a newer picture of my setup showing pretty much everything.

That's a nice setup but where's the halfstack? I know you have a halfstack, did you hide it under the bed again? Oh, man that just gave me a great idea. Gotta GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's at my drummers house. It's too loud to play here at my house. Hell, even my 5150 combo is way too loud for my house. But, I can approximate the 5150 tones with this setup, and Marshallesque tones. Pretty much any tone I can think of can be achieved. :D
