Propellerhead's new RECORD features a beautiful model of the SSL 9000 K analogue mixing console. Until such time that I can actually afford to run Record, I've had to make due by looking at pictures and listening to the buzz. This tension has led me to urgently desire to render the Record mixer in 3D. After looking at some intimidating 3D programs (not to mention expensive), I started 3D modeling in Google's Sketchup (free). I'm not done rendering all the components in 3D, but I have completed the knobs, some buttons, and the mixer fader knobs.
