It’s been a busy couple of months with some notable improvements to the studio.  For starters, all of the studio’s air-conditioning ductwork was enclosed in sheetrock, making the central AC system dead-quiet. We also have some new mics and a sweet new Great River preamp that kills on just about anything. Classic Neve sound.

Recently purchased Ableton Live – starting to get a pretty good grasp of the program. It’s a fantastic writing tool and we hope to make use of it a whole lot in the future.

In a somewhat impromptu but much-enjoyed appearance, Bad Brains came in for a quick rehearsal before their show at Commodore park this past June.  They are simply awesome!

Other than that, been enjoying working on everyone’s music:  recorded and mixed Karma Versa’s first-ever EP and it’s a good one. They are a young band to keep on eye on. Been putting some finishing touches on Coyote Eyes‘ EP.  Dinosaur Feathers, who are currently on tour with Lonnie Walker, had me mix a new song called “Young Bucks”. Also working with Choo, a talented female hip-hop artist who is quite the one-take wonder.  An eclectic mix of artists, as usual. That’s how we like it around here.
