Clover’s additional gear includes an AMEK–TAC Scorpionconsole, a pair of Avalon 737s and “classic” effects:dbx1066 and 1060s, a Yamaha SPX990 and a REV7. “Aside from theAvalons, we don’t use a lot of outboard gear, much less our DATmachines,” he explains. “Everything is ProTools andplug-ins these days—mostly from Focusrite, WAVES and the itemsthat come with ProTools. We have the 24 MixPlus 8-channel hard diskrecording/editing system with 888I/O digital input, and we sync tovideo quite a bit. Our business is not $5,000 mics; we have NeumannTLM193s, 421s, EV RE-20s, A-T 4047s, SM81s, and lots ofShures.”
