I had my annual large console lift day today. This is an Amek Big my buddy picked up in Milwaukee and is heading to southern Illinois. At around 400 pounds, it was by far the lightest studio console i have moved in a bit, and with any luck the last.
Being in Wisconsin, a stop for New Glarus was in order.
Though the JH16’s time may be limited (depending on wether it finds a new home), it’s fun to be able to bounce PT tracks over and get them all gooey with transformers and ATR tape. A/B/C comparison sessions should be a blast.
It’s -10 degrees ferhenheit outside today, but its cozy in The Rec Room. With the MXP3036 providing some much appreciated extra heat, the fireplace crackiling, and the hundreds of little light bulbs glowing, I am feeling happy and festive.
Needed to test out some gear in the studio, and recording music is way more fun than random sine waves, to we laid down a cover of the His Name Is Alive song “Send My Face”. This song comes of the Detrola record that came out in 2009. Cool record by a legendary Detroit band.
Upgrades to my Pro Tools universe are underway this week, which means long hours of figuring out compatibility issues. Who said rock and roll was glamorous?
Working on some tunes with an old friend while the winters first snowfall builds outside. Good days and good times.
A new addition to the weird and eclectic guitar pedal collection via the new Elctro Harmonix Mel9 Mellotron simulator pedal. All my favorite Big Star and King Crimpson organ sounds can be replicated on the guitar, and that’s just some basic fiddling around. Trough some fuzz and echo on it and make something new. Cool stuff!
