    So today I installed the complete setup of the SSL desk and absolutely love it. Mixes sound huge and punchy full of warmth and character.

    usually about 4am then back at 9am you have a 5 hour window of opportunity. We work on rotation so there's likely to be someone there at all times. If the music pumping you'll know were in

    Whilst waiting for the page to load (terrible connection at work at the moment) i was running through all the acronyms for SSL that i know..

    They were all wrong.


    Tidy bit of kit mate, nice.

    Yeah I pop up DV from time time not so much anymore since they changed hands / went bankrupt. Tend to use KMR Audio now. Dv in Romford was always the place to go to test out synths as they had a great selection on the shop floor. Always bought synths from DV. Got this whole rack from there minus the moog pedals

    The minitaurs are a lovely little synth. You know when something so simple it's better. There's nothing to it, if you want that classic moog bottom end it does it straight out the box
