So I decided to change things around a little bit and get a new mixing console. I find using an actual mixing console improves workflow dramatically but choosing the right console was difficult. There are so many to choose from, all with great features and great sound quality…
In the end I got a great deal on a Presonus 16.4.2 digital console. It provides a 18*16 interface for my pro tools rig with excellent AD/DA converters as well as 16 XMAX pre-amps but also allows me to mix much more intuitively whilst lifting some of the processing power off of the computer.
Very much looking forward to getting it set up and doing my first full session with it 🙂
Been a great couple of months here at Wall Of Sound 🙂
Had studio sessions with the mighty Runemaster and new Livingston band Parallel Lights, both of which should be available soon for your aural delight!
I’ve also done a couple of really cool live recording sessions with Ricky Warwick/Damon Johnson (Black Star Riders) & Cherie Currie (The Runaways). These were a lot of fun to record but have been sent off to be mixed elsewhere. Will keep you posted on release dates etc…
Last, but not least, I picked up a few new toys for the studio in the form of a dbx channel strip, some Triton Audio Fethead inline pre’s and a Beyer M-201
I’ve been working on the new album from Gareeda for quite a while now but glad to say it’s finally finished and the guys have released the first video for the album… This is ‘Locust Man’ taken from their forthcoming LP ‘Leatherhead’ – out on Oct 5th. Enjoy 🙂
