Thanks for sharing.
I grew up working in the old school style of recording,just as 1979 is representing.
There is nothing I remember more pleasing to my ears than mixing with an old Neve console
and a Studer 2 inch and mastering to a 1/4 inch Revox halftrack.
Everything analogue from Urei compressors to a nice big,plate reverb.
Heaven,I tell ya.
I like his attitude and he's built a beautiful place to record.

No interest in traditional recording............?:)

It's very cool, but it's really expensive and doesn't really fit in with modern recording workflows. Hyper-editing and instant recall seem to be much more important than any sonic improvement, to most acts.

I owned a nice MCI 24 track machine the last few years and the sound is what I grew up with through the rock era. Alas, I'm much more into writing and overall production. I ran out of affordable engineers that wanted to learn how to use that machine or the older ones that knew from long experience.
It seems nobody gives a crap about sound quality anymore.
I threw in the towel and sold it last year.
Now I have an Antelope Orion converter and am trying to be satisfied with that compromise.

Yeah, the workflow afforded by DAW technology is viewed as essential by a lot of people. No-one forces you to work that way, even with a DAW--you can always impose most of the limitations of a reel-to-reel tape machine if you want, but it facilitates a way of working that's become very popular.
