Gear Spotlight: Just finished setting up the studios First Act Sheena CE240. These were part of their short lived step into making professional quality production guitars, and is a result of the work from their (also short lived) custom shop up in Massachusetts that was run by a few ex-Gibson luthiers. First Act is a weird company, but these guitars are super cool! Fast to play and a bit Fender-ish in tone, I just put some flat wound strings on it and the thing sounds and plays great!
——
I’ll be highlighting some of my favorite guitars here at the studio over the next couple weeks, so stay tuned to some real cool shred machines!

I've been on a hunt for a pair of tracking headphones that are affordable, sound good, isolate well, and are exciting to listen to for clients, so I rolled the dice on a pair of Status Audio CB-1's. Seriously blown away by these guys! If you're in the market, I can't recommend them enough. Really great tracking headphones that wont make your wallet hurt if a drummer accidentally breaks a pair because the guitar player left them on the ground.

Spent 4 days at @virtueandvicestudios a couple weeks ago working on a brand spanking new project. It's super rad and I can't wait for it to come out. Here are some photos from the session. Big drums, loud guitars, crazy vocals, fire spitting sax!

Despite all the super fun toys I have here at the studio, this is one of my favorites. This NES runs a Chip Maestro conversion card which hijacks the synth section of the console so you can play it in real time over MIDI. Working on some very cool 8-bit stuff this week!

ADAM Audio

This past September ADAM Audio invited me and 3 of my colleagues out to Ball State University so we could chat with some of the production students. I had so much fun! Check out their video below.

ADAM Audio's first #ADAMEdu event: Spent an evening with Ball State University's Music Media Production program, talking to students about the ins-and-outs of being a freelance engineer. The panel featured New York-based engineers Aaron Bastinelli & Nic Hard and Austin-based engineer Justin Douglas of King Electric Recording.

Enjoy the tips & tricks of the trade that these engineers bring to the table and keep your eyes out for more ADAMEdu events in the future.

Track Pack – 24th-30th September 2018

Really nice write up on the new Vaureen album. You can also now stream the second single “Secret” on Spotify!

"As far as spurious comparisons to largely unrelated artists go, the assertions of Vaureen sounding like a cross between Chelsea Wolfe and The Sword is probably one of the most accurate in some time. It can definitely be felt in Secret with its enormous, foreboding sense of sheer atmosphere, and in Andrea Horne’s delicate but impending vocal presence billowing out. There’s an enormous sense of power, driven by the dusty stoner-rock low end with the clean, chiming guitar passages over it as the necessary source of light. In terms of grasping the impact of Horne’s synesthesia, it’s such an evocative soundscape that it might just do that, as it swirls dark blues and purples in a way that most shoegaze wishes it could achieve. It’s a potent listen for sure, and while a bit of time is needed to get the real impact, when it hits, it’s borderline unmatched."

Hey friends!

Last year I started the process of building a new mix room. It took me about 5 1/2 months to finish the build, and another 4 months to get everything fully set up. The room was designed by John Brandt and built by myself and a handful of very generous friends. The outcome has been pretty staggering. A lot of you have already come by to take a listen, and more are always welcomed!

I'm really proud of the space, and even more proud of the work I've been able to accomplish in so far.

Thanks to Leo Mascaro for taking some fantastic photos of the studio, and to John for designing an insanely good sounding room.

Had a blast last night at the Jesus On The Mainline record release show for The Morning Bell. Big Hands Rhythm & Blues Band and Wild Adriatic put on some amazing sets as well.

Tracking and mixing The Morning Bell was such a great experience. Go check it out!
