    None! Everything is in the box.

    That's pretty interesting. I want to start using more hardware, ever since I bought my DBX, M One and UA M-610 I think I'm really starting to understand the term GEAR SLUT : )

    Ha! It's a slippery slope... music and gear ;-) @ Scott - re: your blog idea. Sounds good. Let's chat offline about it. :)

    The "in the box" vs. "out of the box" discussion is always an interesting one. When I first built my studio (10 years ago), I had lots of effect units, keyboards, and more outboard gear. Most of this hardware has gone the way of my Tascam DA-98 -- that is to say, it's been sold on eBay! For me, the convenience of pulling up a session with all of my settings intact combined with the lower cost and improved quality of software plug-ins has made the "in the box" solution the right one for me. I find many composers doing everything in software but sending out stems to a hardware unit (e.g. a mixer) to sum and mix. Whatever gets you to the sound you want at a price you can afford!

    Hey FrotSkyman, I'm just really getting into mixing my own stuff (properly) and have been learning quite a bit form tutorials and just trying to train my ears. I've been using plugins but really wanted to get myself a couple of nice pieces to go out of the box and back in. So far I have a DBX compressor on my master and am looking to buy an A-Designs EQ, either the Hammer or the new EM-EQ2 to put before the compressor. I really like feeling the knobs and to actually hear what I'm doing without concentrating on the screen. Anyway, yeah it's pretty interesting.
