The New Mobile Recording Rig

Not that I need a mobile recording rig, but... I'm building a mobile recording rig. It will mostly live at home, wherever that may be.

This very exciting looking roadcase will soon house an Edirol FA-101 FireWire A/D I/O (10 in/10 out, including 2 channel mic pre), a Mackie 1202 VLZ Pro mixer (four more mic pre's), a stereo (and hopefully fanless) power amp pushing AuraTone-type monitors. Headphone monitoring will be done in an Aux bus on the Mackie. A rack-mounted power conditioner will keep everything behaving. The whole thing will be Fire-Wired to a Mac computer, running digitial multitrack recording software and a 1TB HD backup. If more inputs are needed, additional Mic Pre's could be plugged right into the back of the I/O unit.

That's the plan, at least. More updates soon.
