It's wet out today. Hurricane Jose is hanging out off our coast, and it is dark and rainy outside. As is appropriate for such weather, the past couple of days have been somewhat quiet here at the studio. There was a session late in the evening yesterday, and there is one going on this afternoon. Cooley (one of the owners and engineers) had been working on the audio design for a film, but otherwise the engineers are enjoying some much deserved chilltime. I, on the other hand, am taking some time to run through some of the textbook provided by The Recording Connection. It seems like pretty basic information (for example: chapter 5- the different types of microphones), but it serves as good reinforcement for the things I know and clarification on the things I had admitted only THOUGHT I knew. It's a good time studying. That said, I have not touched too many tests since getting back from my vacation, so it is on my agenda to run through a few of them in the coming weeks so that I can have and apply that knowledge here in the studio.
Beyond that, business as usual. I am posting music twice a week as ever, and I feel like I am picking up tricks for mixing that I really didn't have before. It's nice to see improvements, even if just a little bit.
In any case, I hope you all are doing well. To any readers down in the South, be careful and be safe. I know the hurricanes are tearing Florida, Texas, and the Carribean a new couple of holes, and I want you all to stay as well as you can. Listen to your radios, hunker down or evacuate as needed, and best of luck making it through. I know I am here thinkin of you, and I know much of the country is caring too. Be well.
