I've been having quite a lot of discussions about hardware vs. software recently. I don't like too much hardware because it takes up space and it's not very portable. These days the software is so good I really don't think mosr people can hear the difference between hardware and software (although I have friends that would disagree).

Although I love my monitors, I spend quite a lot of time mixing on my headphones. When I get some more cash I'm going to get some Sennheiser HD650s. Mixing on good headphones is a nice solution for anyone who can't afford a lot of cash for monitors. 

There's quite a nice article on mixing with headphones here:

Sweet setup



Yep...very sweet set-up.. wished to have included other stuff, but that could have been a long list...

but I'll mention a few more:

1. Tons of softwares and plug-ins...[the list there is endless...I sometimes dont know which to use :)]
2. Mic Stand and Pop shield
3. 2 x Standton turntables and mixer + 2 x Technics SL1200 + Standton cDj
4. I collect headphones - 2 x Sennheiser HD202 + 1 x Sennheiser PX100
[just like D-pleezee, I enjoy mastering with them...although I love my monitors]

All I can say about a gadget freaks pc is that it had 4 HD's and hell of a lot memory!

Nice set up guys...

hahaha,,, naa,,, just my local mac dealer :)

Other than the Sennheiser headphones, my next purchases could be a better mic pre-amp. One day I would like to invest in a Neumann U87 mic too (but at around R30,000 that's not happening any time soon).
