| | Hurray for backup rigs!!!
Well, it's not often that I can justify that redundant recording system that I tote along all over the place, costing me money, taking up space, yadda yadda. That's a good thing, but I just wanted to shout out to Mackie for saving the day on Monday.
For some bizarre reason during a remote of a band called Band of Horses, the PT system had a hickup during the very first song. (very strange) Luckily, although only recording at 48k, the redundant Mackie MDR still ran solidly down below. Whew! Oh yeah, that's why that thing is there. I transferred the song into PT the next day (upconverting to 96k) and although there is a little tonal difference, the performance is solid and the project moves on.
My very first remote (years ago) was a nightmare and the backup system saved my ass. I haven't needed it, but always run it since then. It's just not worth the risk!
This is a scaled down version of the rig, due to space, but here's a pic!
Keep on keepin on!
