Tracking Drums and Bass with my Band Karass

This weekend I set up to record drums and bass for the band I play in, Karass. We recorded in a huge auto garage filled with import cars (very funny)

I finally had a chance to use our newly modded Behringer ADA8000 by the folks at Black Lion Audio and the newly modded Rode NT1As by the folks at Oktava Mod . The tracks sound BIG and will need very little processing. I couldn’t be happier with how this is turning out. Next are time edits in PT.

Cross Country Trip and Completing the Studio

Back from a trip around the country. My wife and I took an Amtrak train trip and stopped in Chicago, Glacier National Park, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Denver.

We saw family, friends, and a ton of new places we’d never been. We stayed at hostels and tried the site airbnb.com for the first time. It was a great experience. It saved us a ton of money, gave us a local resource who new the area, and was cozier than staying in a hotel. What did we do with all the money we saved with lodging? We spent it on lots of great food and even more great beer!

Heading home meant finishing the studio. The studio is now almost done; I am hanging trim today and next week the insulation arrives so I can build sound absorbers. Pictures of the finished studio coming next week!
