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

Say what? No way! Vacuuming under a drum kit is waaaay more fun than making acoustic panels. I bet you didn't have to clean wood stain off your carpet did you? I won't even mention how long it took me to get it off my hands and arms, lol. Pshhh, don't get me started. And tell your drummers to stop eating nachos when they play.

I endlessly configured stuff, connected things in new ways, researched studio tech lol. I didn't get much done. Need another day like this to get it all situated. Seems like I constantly do this as I learn or come up with new more efficient ways to use my equipment.

Tested different mike positions for my U7 Yammie piano using a Royer SF24 into ULN8 pres. Sounded very nice with the Royer facing down above my head. Front lid off piano. The Metric Halo 3 character plug in Brititsh Tube emulation was lovely and warm. The Slate VTM also warmed it up nicely. Very happy with this piano, mike and ULN8. I cannot get near this sound using Ivory II.

PS--If your ever in the market for an upright piano the Yamaha U7 is a "beast" My piano tuner (whom I greatly respect ---advised me to try and find one) I did, and next to a mid sized grand it's amazing for an upright.

Dubbed some DATs from the 90s that documented my spacy looping shows I used to do, cleaned up a bunch stuff from crazy soldering binges, and fought with soundBlade. That program is so unintuitive. But I bought it so I'm determined to keep hacking away at it until I can at least do the basics.

Thought about doing some mixing of recent live captures. Played with my son who turned 5 months yesterday. He's still a little wary of the studio.

those are not nacho crumbs, they are drumstick splinters!



sadly, my answer to the thread title for today IS "vacuuming"

got some jazz coming up later in the week, though

My Studio

Spent a good 2 hours on the first half of re-doing my patchbays... Picked up a Thermionic Culture Vulture, and haven't been able to play with it since my desk is pulled out and all my gear/synths are unplugged!! D:

The fun should begin tomorrow... After about 4 more hours of printing labels for cables, cleaning my patchbays, re-labeling the patchbay faces, and re-plugging everything...

Spent a couple of hours setting up a stupid Ilok.
Now I know why so many people hate those things.

Made some coffee, calibrated the tape machines, recalled the console and outboard and now I'm doing some mix passes for a NYC client and waiting for his approval.

I'm in the process of moving my modest project studio into a new room but I spent the day and night tracking flamenco & jazz fusion guitar. Now it's 6 am and time to sleep. Too bad this isn't my 'real' job... Maybe some day.

Spent the morning moving around kick and snare hits for this new tune and it's still pretty nasty.

I am sooo sloppy.

Soldered a couple of cables, tried to troubleshoot a malfunctioning Blues JR amp (problem with the speaker, and the damn thing is NEW), had a rehearsal session, did some inventory and went over some upcoming sessions. Another day at the office...

Composed a piece for a TV ad and started recording it. Mastered a jingle track. Drilled a hole in the wall from the machine room to the control room and wired up power for one of my racks.

And just as I was about to call it a day, an ad-hoc VO session came up. Went with U87 into API. Sounded nice.

Busy day.
