Just saw this. I really need to visit the board more often. Goes in phases. We're more or less out of the way. Yes in that we are in the middle of Montana, about a half hour from Glacier National Park and right on a massive lake. Not out of the way in that we're just outside of town. But its a wonde...

Yeah,
With color, the cameras are quite different. Did a white balance before and still ended up with some color differences. Basically had a couple of borrowed cameras. One a cheap sony and the other an ok Panasonic.

My big goal next round is to do a better job with lighting.

I use the mix wizard a lot for live stuff, we have one for our church, which is a mobile setup. Simple enough, Rack mountable. Tonality I'd take it over a lot of boards in that price point. I've only used it for live, but if you have some decent converters I'd say it would probably be a better optio...

One good cheap ish option is ebaying an AKG solid tube.

Good tube cardioid, I'll use them as overheads fairly often. Also great on a variety of other applications.

Thank you guys so very very much. Yeah, lighting has been one of the biggest feedback points so far, We had a couple of soft boxes up but I, in hindsight, could have placed them better. Also it was suggested several times to get the ambient light down quite a bit. Odd note.. Never even crossed my mi...

Proof of concept live in studio. -link now up

Hey Tape oppers, Did a proof of concept live video in the studio a couple months ago. Fairly rudimentary but I would love to expand on this. https://vimeo.com/134676461 Have a list the size of my arm for the video end. Different lighting, some shoulder mounts for camera, cheap jib, etc. Was my two c...

Timing Drums: oh... 3 Typically my "timing" fixes on drums are replacing or moving a bad hit around, assuming the drums were done remotely in time.. I usually time the other instruments if needed.(Most often Bass) Vocals.. maybe a 4. If I'm tracking its just a bit of love so we can be "Industry stan...

I'll play as well.

Facebook hasn't built a lot of business, but it has generated some. As for most people getting a studio started, business is more about word of mouth. I will embrace anything that helps me get more people talking about it.

Still working on what I want to do for workflow. So far, when I was calibrating my oputputs from pro tools int...

Lately its been my go to on vocals if I'm recording other things in the room. We had a VMP-2 in the studio I used to work at. Never got a chance to play with it though. Have h...

Yeah, me and him (the owner) sorted out the liability end a while ago.
Think I have things sorted. Got a local agency with a good rep giving me some decent pricing. If that doesn't work out I'll go with the MusicPro guys.

Thanks for bringing them up. Had never heard of them before.
