Yesterday after getting things calibrated here, someone hit a power pole and knocked out power and cable for the whole block. Lol It’s always something.

They took out a whole pole but did a hit and run so I suppose they’re good.

After a whole month and some change, I feel like I cracked the Da Vinci Code getting my Apollo silver face to be able to monitor 5.1 in Pro Tools and for my system sound.
πŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ”Š
There was virtually nothing online on how to do this with my device and I was told I’d have to upgrade to an X series rack to get the surround functionality through the console app. $3500 🀯
I was like wait uhhhhh minute! Since the silver face has all the physical outputs needed for 5.1. it would seem the software is limiting functionality.
πŸ€”πŸ•΅πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

Once I get everything else up I’ll post how I did it show you my less costly workaround.
I was seriously going mad lol.

First Monday of the year and my mindset is the same as it was last year.

This year I’m excited to dive deeper into the world of 5.1, Atmos and Binaural sounds.

I really liked the Nero, it was a game changer for switching between monitors but after only a short time I found myself needing 5.1 + options. Enter MC7.1

I’ve been toying around with ambisonics & spatial audio on headphones but I know that’s not like being in an immersive space. Anyone else dipping their toes in them Atmos waters?

I did mix for a podcast last night and am now referencing them on headphones since that’s where the majority of people listening these days.
🎧
When I first started mixing, never in a million years did I think I would be working on video games, podcast or sound for film. To be honest I didn’t even know these jobs existed or were an option. Back then I just wanted to rap and record my friends, who knew you could actually get paid for it!?
πŸ€―πŸ˜…
Big shout to @bunny1367 who said β€œhey, you know you can go to school for that” and brought us to @collegeofthecanyons, where they had a Media Entertainment Arts program. I ended up taking it and that’s where learned basic fundamentals of mixing… Showing my age, this was before You Tube existed lol.

I’m really enjoying my @olloaudio S4R and S4X headphones!
I’m a big fan of aesthetics and craftsmanship and these sound as good as they look.
🎧
The soundstage is tight but clearly defined and I can vouch for the rumor of them being β€œflat out of the box”
With other cans I’d have to use Sonarworks to get the results these give.

Here are the latest addition/ upgrades to my studio!
πŸŽšπŸŽ›
I recently had a power surge and it blew out the black light on my monitor screen and fried my Monster Power Pro2500 and UPS system😩
Luckily nothing else was damaged.
πŸ™πŸΎ
I was already in the market for a good clock and
I’ve heard nothing but good things about @blacklionaudio and decidedly go with their power conditioner and micro clock.🀯
πŸ”‹
The PG-1 power conditioner smashes my old one and it was pretty good. Electrical noise is practically nonexistent! NO buzz hum or hiss
🀫
Now for the clock
πŸ•°
I got the Micro clock MKIII XB just to help with syncing equipment and post sound to video buuuuuut what I got was much more!
This thing has given my current setup new life! Best way to describe it is 3D sound vs 2D and flat. My Apollo Silveface is lovely on its own but now there’s more depth and things like reverb tails stick out. Not the sexiest upgrade but it made a big difference on how I perceived the sound stage and now I can make better mixing decisions

πŸŽšπŸŽ›πŸŽšπŸŽ›
Sometimes when I have too many options it makes the mixing process slower.
πŸ€” πŸ•°
I use the tools I like and that are conducive to my workflow and I pretty much stick with those.
