It’s a period of renewal, growth and change for Little Cheddar Studios. Learning how to survive in this covid existence took priority over some of the things that were top of mind pre pandemic. As we begin to adjust we are slowly checking off our improvements list. One need was more tools in our reamping and tone control arsenal. The Universal Audio Ox box is a welcome friend for our tube amps, late night tracking sessions, and often fatigued ears. Looking forward to some great recordings and great sessions with this baby.

Apple’s Catalina OS has been one of the roughest curveballs the audio community has ever been dealt. Its 64 bit only architecture put a wrench (most likely intentionally) in just about everyone’s gear except Apple/Apogee. Yesterday we got our monstrous MacPro recording. Now comes the tweaking and troubleshooting as we iron things out and prepare for the next stage!

We have some beautiful things starting to grow @littlecheddarstudios ! @carmeeno22 and I are going to start making some exciting improvements as we prepare to welcome folks back soon. One of our new additions will be some great live performance and live stream spaces that will have incredible recording capabilities and dreamy matching gear. This Victory tube amp is a welcome addition to our family and we look forward to having y’all over to make some magic with it soon.

We’ve been writing songs, crafting arrangements, making beats, tracking parts, mixing tunes, mastering music. Amazing how much we’ve done with y’all remotely and exited to have artists over again soon. Little Cheddar is making even more exciting improvements and investments as we embrace the future. Been one hell of a year, and one hell of a ride. Buckle up for more!

It’s a big fat snare drum for our big fat snare drum! Laying down some more tracks for our remote collaboration EP with @slyjimmie Our 2006 apricot sparkle steam bent 8x14 maple Craviotto snare always sounds rich and full. Decided to launch the back beat into tubby overdrive with the great @bigfatsnaredrum tone enhancer. Been using their products as soon as they came around. Love the funky snare warmth.

It’s really nice to have a deep bench. Our Manley EQ is off for some service after copious use. The API 5500 is an equally thrilling mastering tool. It has broad shoulders with rich tight bass and incredible clarity. It has a great hot rodded feature for us mastering folks. With a twist of a knob you can adjust its adjustment levels to 1/2 or 1/4 percentage. This is ideal for tracks that just need a smidge of eq. Really looking forward to putting her to use on upcoming projects.

Time to enter the BONE ZONE!

Been listening to a lot of Mick Ronson and really into those savage fuzzy riffs. BJFE makes some of our favorite stomp boxes and it’s awesome having this new baby based on the original Tone Bender Mk1 in our bag of tricks.
