Sup world! Had another awesome session in the studio last week, this time we worked more with the analog gear which I find personally a bit more fun than digital. I do love working with digital, but I have always been more interested in vintage gear. 

After going over the lessons I have completed in the workbook with Steve, we dove right into the session. First Steve showed us(another student that I attend the session with) how patch bays work, which is great because just reading about it and not seeing how they work can be confusing. Next he showed us which compressors and equalizers he wanted us to use for the mix we have been working on. After a quick rundown on how to properly use the racks, we got the green light to pretty do whatever we wanted with the equipment. I understand working with analog is more "work" but there is something about it that makes it a lot of fun too.

My peer and I fiddled around with the gear for about an hour and a half until we decided it was about time to go home. I could have probably put it in a couple more hours into the session, but since it was getting pretty late I knew that wasn't possible.

I start liking the program more and more after every session and I can't wait till the next time I get into the studio.
