Hi DrBill,. Thank you SO much for the offer. I really appreciate it and the concern. but shipping cost is way to much.

I am so close to building a windows machine.... but I have already invested so much in this mac :( and I now have a pile of mac parts,. that don't work.. lol

A few days ago I received a PSU and Motherboard, shipping cost what it takes us to live for a whole month or more :(
The motherboard he sent wont work with my CPU :( it might have different firmware (or my CPU is also dead)

I cant catch a break.. I have been trying to get this Mac working for over 2 months now and no progress.

But I know God will provide what we need in His perfect timing.

Hi, Thanks

All the floors are cement,. So i did a acid stain concrete. I used Iron Sulfide in the CR and LR and Copper Sulfide in the Iso and Office area (i will get some pics of that it came out ok)
I am getting better at it as i go... the control room was hard,.. the sealer never dried, i cant find the standard concrete sealer we use in the US here,. It took me 4 weeks to strip and re-seal the CR floor until it looked acceptable. the other rooms were easier. But not as shinny as normal sealer would make them look,. But they still sound the same

Heres a pic of the CR floor after i finished.

Thanks man,. It was hard for me to keep it looking uniform because the wood I used (coconut wood),.. is all hand cut so its not straight or the same thickness.. but it looks good

Those panels are 10" deep filled with rockwool and fiberglass. They do a good job adsorbing the low freq.

I will still add some panels to the bare concrete parallel walls (either diffusion or adsorption depending on how the room sounds.

Right now its super 'live' with a long sweet high freq. decay.

I want to keep that decay but those walls look bare and I think the room will sound even better with some more diffusion.

Hi,. I am waiting for a 4.1 CPU chip that will work with a 4.1 motherboard board. So I can test the new board I have (hope it will get here in a couple weeks)

The seller sent me a PSU and a motherboard board. a few weeks ago
And from my testing/troubleshooting I found the original PSU was OK. And I think the original motherboard board is dead.

But the new board he sent will not boot with my 5.1 CPU. (maybe the board he sent is not compatible with my CPU? ... I don't know)

So when I get the 4.1 CPU chip I will install it in my Processor Tray... Then if the machine will boot... I have to update the firmware on the board he sent... So it will work with the 5.1 CPU.

If it will not boot .. that means the Processor Tray is also dead.

My plan is to build a backup machine that is a clone of my main machine. So hopefully I wont have to go through this when the studio is open and working

Thanks for the question,...

Console and Mac Working !

Just a quick update.... The Mac booted with a 4.1 CPU and the D&R Octagon automation problem is fixed !

So now i have a working Mac, and a working moving fader automation system Praise God !!!

I still need to get the firmware updated on my motherboard so it will work with my 5.1 - 6 core 3.46ghz CPU.. but the 4 core 2.66 is working fine for now.

I am so thankful for all you that prayed for this and all those people that helped me with advice and also financially to get these problems fixed.

The studio is done but just need to seal up the doors and get a Air Conditioning unit for the live room. (thats a big expense)
Thats all i am waiting for to say "Im Open"

Pics on the way

Steve.. I’ve moved on from NS10’s to acoustic Energy AE22’s and couldn’t be happier.

Google the reviews and you’ll enjoy working with them more so as they don’t pop or break have the same mid peaks and are still supported despite being out of production.

Someone is making the drivers for NS10's again Steve. This just started recently. I don't remember who, because when I finally ditched my NS10's I never wanted to hear a pair again as long as I live. You can probably find them if you google it.

Worship Confrence Next Week

Looking forward the the first use of the studio,.. I will be teaching classes on mixing sound for church, mic placement, gain staging, etc... and other things a sound guy/girl needs to know to keep the sound system working properly.

This is the beginning of the School of Worship,.. First semester starts in June. Excited to see the fruit from this.

Hi, Yes all is going good. I have been busy testing, It is so good to hear music in this place

The live room sounds amazing with acoustic instruments, drums, sax, guitars etc. Have not recorded anything in the iso room yet...

The control room is better than I thought it would be.. it is pretty flat,. you can walk around the room and the frequency does not change much. It is just louder the closer you get to the speakers,. but no bass build up or loss of bass anywhere in the room.

I will post some pics...

Dear Steve,

the crucial piece of information concerning NS10-tweeters is that this happens mostly because the driving amplifier is not powerful enough. Since I started running my NS-10s with a strong amp, I have never had a blown tweeter.

Hopefully this helps! And your studio looks great, congratulations!

Hi, Thank you and I totally agree,.. I have always used a Adcom 545 moded by Jim Williams, I used it at my last studio Creation in CA and never popped a tweet or driver.

I have the same setup at my new studio... But all the tweets and woofs that blew were My Fault.. and happened even before I opened the studio..
Both times it was a Loud 'Pop' or signal when I hit the 'wrong' button... :( I have never toasted one while listening to music.

I will still get some spares considering my luck in the past few months

Website is looking nice, as well as the studio. On the website, on the "Music Ministry" page, I would definitely change this line "Producing and recording Christian artists that can not afford to go to a real studio." I would call your studio a "real" studio no doubt. Don't sell yourself short.

Agreed, and there's another thing elsewhere about Discounted Rates; I wouldn't do that either because it suggests that nobody has to pay retail, which is already beyond reasonable.

As for, "Producing and recording Christian artists that can not afford to go to a real studio," maybe something along the lines of "... Producing and recording Christian artists affordably." "Affordably" being a sliding scale depending on who's doing the affording, and whether you feel they're doing something worth doing.
