yeah, mostly digidesign 192's, sometimes an apogee converter. preamps depend on the studio, engineer, or producer, sometimes they'll use preamps in the console, sometimes external preamps

Yep most studios use ProTools HD however not everyone uses that. I know a few pro studios who run PCs and have programs like Sonar.

You don't need mac computers and high end interfaces to get that studio sound...you can get some great sound out of most consumer gear these days.

oh and it should be noted that digital studios mostly stay away from mixers and such now. they have digital consoles that have preamps on board and operate more like a control surface. The Digi Control 24 or C24 are examples of this.
The other half of that setup is the rack mount iO interfaces which take the preamped audio and feed it into the computer for mixing and such.

example of my schools studio:

Mostly large format consoles (SSL 4000 kind of thing), outboard preamps, compressors, eq, reverb, etc, pro tools HD systems, MOSTLY mac pro's as mentioned, and a set of high end monitors (genelec, yamaha NS-10)

Most professional studios have more than a set of monitors, they have upwards of maybe 2 pairs, a few subs, another pair behind the listener, and a few more pairs with different speaker sizes at different heights in the room.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

As long as musicians don't know any better, commercial recording studios will offer:

- studio A with a giant 128 track Neve equipped desk
- studio B with a fully automated 24, 32 or 48 track mixer (think state of the art Mackie or Yamaha)
- studio C with the latest Mac and Protools.

Meanwhile private professional recording studios were quietly getting rid of their old ADATs to make room for the new Tascam/Alesis/Mackie 24 track self contained HD recorders or, after having pulled their last hair with Protools, found their eden with...

Merging Technologies Pyramix




Never once heard the name. Judging from that screenie, I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole.

On topic, Pro Tools is the main one out there software wise. It all depends though.

Calling me an ass is like walking up to Barak Obama and saying hes black, its something everyone with 2 eyes and half a brain already knows.

On topic, it doesn't matter how many studios use it, I'd rather see results than a list of "OMG! EVERYONE HERE USES IT". I've seen good results from Pro Tools, thats why I and many others use it.

If you've got your wits about you, you'll be able to get good results from almost any professional DAW out there.

The DAW contributes little to the over all result, it's the operator, not the operation. Pure unbridled subjectivity.

largely true,
however, different DAWs present different workflows to the user which can have a significant impact on productivity and speed for the user.
