A setup is something very personal and differs
depending on own preferences and aversions. Here is mine.
My setup for any kind of work is based upon a very simple prnciple: As less hardware as possible.
I am not the guy that stores 20 different tube guitar amps, 30 awsome anaolg synthesizers and
40 vintage electric basses. But I owe the software instrument, reproducing
an exact digital copy of the original. And in case of string Instruments such as
guitars and basses I exhibit such a musical and technical proficiency
that I always get the sound I had in mind.
If I need the sound of a ‘Roland Juno 106′ then I load
it as an insert into my DAW. Instead of squashing my audio on a outboard based
‘UA 1176′ compressor I load it’s software based replication into my DAW.
So yeah – as less cables, pedals, instuments and speakers as possible.
