After rescuing a beautiful Otari MTR 10 mix down deck almost a whole year ago, I have finally had a chance to get it up to snuff and ready to work. Mixed some songs from my friend Lauren Heneise to it for a test. Sounds lovely with a nice little sheen on the high end. This also means you can do a project 100% analog at the Rec Room now if you so desire. Neat.
My personal project, Veloce is releasing a record soon. If you enjoy down tempo drone layers and the occasional motorik beat, you may like it. Here’s the opening track.
Picked up a few projects. Hopefully, getting these beauties session ready won’t take too much.
Latest addition to the mic closet. We picked up a Peluso 22 251 and immediately put it to use on a load of vocal tracks as well as some acoustic and electric guitar tracks with very pleasing results.
Pretty excited to add these guys to the mic locker. Stereo pair of AEA Ribbons have been sounding great on guitars, drum sets, and vocals. The smooth high end of a classic ribbon mic, with having to crank the gain on the mic pre (and and a ton of noise) is a wonderful thing.
I got some downtime over the weekend so built up a new equipment rack island to help organize and keep things tidy. Not sure how Udon feels about it, but I’m digging it.
Silly name, but a great eBay score. Glad to have a Beyerdynamic TG-X50 back in my life. This one is minty and ready to record a old Ampeg bass amp.
