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.
