Thats a very nice studio, very minimal, he must have lots of soft synths then, when he needs to "put a donk on it"

That's still at least 10K of outboard in that little rack!

Still agree, though - Sgt. Pepper's was recorded with a minimal of tracks. And listen to Tomorrow Never Knows from Revolver.

Likewise, imagine how Dark Side would've sounded had Alan Parsons had the technology today? Better? Not by a long shot.

Work to your limitations and you've got a better chance of focussing on what counts.

Interesting, what do you mean by this? dont bite off more than you can chew with fancy techniques your not 100% sure on and stick to what your solid at?

Elbow don't screw around with soft synths. They record real pianos and hardware "organs" like the VK8 in the big live room at Blueprint. That room in the pic is just for mixing. As was mentioned earlier though, a fair amount of plug-in effects get used in the mix.

Isn't the VK8 a software emulation of a proper organ?

When saying 'know your limitations and work to them' I basically mean stop buying more equipment. It's more of a word with myself than anyone else who has not actually finished a track in a year or so, yet has just bought Cubase 5 and a Mopho!
