Elysian: since this is the recording forum, i thought it would be pretty obvious that i meant, "post your recording setup"

new stuff showing up daily so as soon as it's all here and settled in it's temporary area...I can post pics.
Guitars are like pringles....You can never have just one!
It's been a year and week since I started up a thread on ss.org getting people to post pics of their recording setup and it seems to have gone down well over there. I thought you guys might enjoy doing the same!
As well as posting pictures of your recording setup, it'd be cool if you say what you're planning on adding/upgrading. If you want to sing the praises of your favourite hardware/software then feel free to do that too!
So to kick things off, here is my setup:
So, we have:
iMac 27" i7, 12GB RAM, running Logic Pro 9
RME FireFace 400 interface
ADAM S3X-V monitors
Audient MiCO preamp (not in picture)
Radial Pro-RMP reamp box
Shure SM7B and SM57 mics
Vovox and Evidence Audio cabling
Large plugin and sample library collection including full Stillwell Audio range, full Toontrack range, and Spectrasonics Trilian among many others
Two WD 2TB external drives for backups and large file storage
The monitors and interface are very new additions (got them a few days ago), and I can already tell they are going to take things up several levels. The monitors are mindfuckingly clear and "effortless" to listen on, and being able to hear low end clearly sub-60Hz is going to make judging bass content in my mixes much much easier (which will hopefully have a knock-on effect on the rest of the mix).
One of the most startling things was hearing how much audible improvement the interface has had over my old one (horrible Presonus Firestudio - avoid those things at all costs!). I hate it when people say this, but it truly was a "night and day" difference. I can't believe I put up with the old one as long as I did!
Next up is going to be some serious room treatment. I'm lucky enough to be working in an attic room that is completely fiberglass lined, which results in very absorptive walls. Moving up here from my bedroom (which had hard reflective walls) earlier this year has probably made the biggest difference to my mixes since getting my first pair of proper monitors (ADAM A7s).
So, over to you guys, let's see your setups!
So your mixes are going to get better? Well fuck me.
Hah, thanks mate but I have a long way to go!
