Today, I shouted "Clear!!!" while I put the defibrillator on my chest after almost getting a heart attack from a channel that blew up on me on the Venice F32.

And then I started to check for an alternative to replace this POS. A good day.

produced / engineered, played every instrument, and sang the rough vocals for this song. i need to track the artist this weekend then its gonna get mixed & mastered and sent to radio (pun intended). i'm by no means a mix / master engineer so my little rough mix needs to be taken with a grain (or 2) of salt. i'm a producer / singer / musician. anyway, here is my contribution to "what did you do in the studio today".

Recorded a client's vocals for a Christmas record.

I never realized how difficult Sleigh Bells is to sing. It is a monster. Especially fast.

Tried out a used pair of KRK V8 monitors that I picked up from the warehouse- both we're broken. Oh well.

Thought about how I wanted to connect my consoles mic inputs to the patch bay. Debating between direct out (8ch) or using the 8 bus outputs (be nice for summing mics before recording).

Ran down to local music shop and picked up a generic universal shock mount for a Rode Nt2 that I haven't used in forever and picked up a sustain pedal for my midi keyboard since the last once went missing a while back.

Probably will solder up a snake to wire up the above stuff after the kids crash out.

I am afraid I did not do nearly enough. Well, at least not as much as I had intended.

My boss is having a big party tonight, so I went over to his house this afternoon to set up a PA system... Then I left. I don't really don't like partying with my current boss. He's 10 times more of an asshole than I am.

Did a quick mix revision for a great San Diego band called The Howls in the morning, then spent the rest of the day mixing tracks for a baltic gypsy fusion band called Hot Blood Orkestar. A great day filled with great music.

Adding percussion tracks to a stereo cassette mixdown (from Wally Heiders in 1976) and syncing up my sequencer to the tracks on my DAW .. . As usual > with my fingers on the keyboards.

In those days > we just had cassettes and usually the one in your VW van ~ that you had to pick one to record over. SO hissy and low-fi. A brown Sears cassette. Its a shame since the original was from 2in tape

At least by the early 80's I had better bias'd Maxell/TDK's along. CD's just had not arrived in the world . Will start the studio mixdown from them in a few weeks ..

Installed a 256GB SSD, cloned the system disk onto it (which took about 45 minutes) and my Nebula program folder (which took another 45 minutes) > nice! Unbelievable performance increase overall.
Re-done a mix for a punk-jazz (whatever) band, which turned out better than I thought, then started to mix/master a TV spot according to EBU128.
In between all this tried to shoo the cat away from cables, the open computer casing and running fans

Spent the better part of the day trying troubleshooting my new system, which has been progressively getting more and more bogged down and buggy. Not sure why, but it seems that my new Mac Pro has an internal issue with its firewire bus, and is barely communicating with my external drives at all... even just copying files from one drive to the other is taking forever. It's basically stalled my work all week, ugh...

Interesting RCM. I'm sorry to hijack but i've been intrigued by this mic for a couple of months now. Not even sure why. I even asked Joel earlier in this thread if he was using it for the choir recording. Serendipity?... Anyway, what's your thoughts on this mic? What are it's strengths in your opinions? Your opinions are highly regarded by the way. You can pm if you like.

Tonight - My wife and kids are going to hang out (iron my clothes and watch Nemo) with me while I mix a live session from a few days ago and edit the video to go along with it. Maybe I can get that studio web cam hooked up too.

Dissagree; technically that is gear and therefore slutty (sure it may be a corner ho vs a high class escort though).

... also there are much more mundane things that AEs sometimes have to do (e.g. moving the drum kit to vaccum under it and then putting it back, which is one of the things I just had to do, place was becoming a bloody sty.... luckily there was nobody else here so I was able to crank some records on my new monitors while I was at it and enjoy a beverage).

I gotta cut/move a wall later and hang a cloud.
