Love this quote from @robkinelski ‘s interview with @wavesaudio discussing his mixing of @billieeilish and @finneas ‘ incredible album. I feel like it’s such an important concept that might seem obvious but so many producers and engineers don’t understand. So often with music, less is more. Thanks for the dope interview and mixes, Rob 🙏🏼

I need to get this tattooed on my face because I really struggle with it so much. Always onto the next thing... Better music, better work, better gear, better studio, better money, etc. But the future will always be the future. Gotta stop and smell the roses and enjoy what you have NOW. This is one of my biggest goals for 2020. Stole this pic from @ericmitchellaudio 🙏🏼

It’s crazy what you can accomplish in a decade if you work hard and really give a f**k. Just gotta throw the blinders on and GO. Push through the crippling self doubt. Push through the bullsh*t from all the naysayers. It might not feel like you’re making progress day to day but then you look back a year and it’s crazy how far you’ve come. Then you look back a decade and it’s f**king mind blowing. Work hard - stay humble - never quit. About to F**K this next decade up. Happy New Year

Love the trackball workflow but like clockwork, every year or so, it gets all wonky and I have to buy a new one. Who else uses the SlimBlade or regular TrackBall? Same issues?? It stops tracking vertically or horizontally, the spin to scroll stops working, etc. I’ll clean it out but then it’ll happen again in a couple days and get worse and worse. Annoying as sh*t but I’ll keep buying them because the workflow is awesome. Here’s to hoping this 4th one lasts longer!! 😬

The @chandlerlimited REDD mic is sick. I shot it out against my C800G and 251 and it was definitely up there with them in terms of sound quality. The REDD really does kind of sound like a 251 and U47 had a baby - It’s tonally in the middle. It’s definitely the smoothest and has the most low end of all 3 mics, although I like that I can tighten it with the low contour switch. The Sony is the most hyped and next to it the 251 sounds natural in the mids in comparison.. But then the REDD makes the 251 sound hyped in the mids. It’s all relative, which is why it’s nice to have a few different mics. They all have their place and all sound amazing. I tried the REDD on a few vocalists and my preferred setting with it was with the drive disengaged but with the low countour engaged. But it’s nice having those options to match it to any situation.

Just wanted to provide some feedback for people who are considering it and primarily record vocals and work on the kinds of music I work on. Although I’m sure it sounds great on bluegrass music and Adele as well 🤷🏻‍♂️ And I can easily tell this mic would sound awesome on almost any source, not just vocals. Overall a great mic that is quite versatile and a worthy addition to any mic locker. And a great option for someone who wants to have ONE awesome high end mic that can do a variety of things - And you don’t even need a preamp because it has one built in. Dope, unique mic.
