We have had an interesting couple of weeks here. We started a class in recording methods and had 4 people sign up. We then gave them an extensive round of classes in Logic X and had them all take tests to see if they remembered any of it. Then we had our studio musicians come in and set up for a recording session to teach proper mic placement, amp settings etc.. Then came the all important recording day itself and all hell broke loose. All 4 students froze in front of the computer, none could remember what to do. We went over what happened and all 4 said that the stress of having a real session being done and a band depending on their recording ability got them all bent out of shape. I guess I never realized how far I have come from being that nervous little engineer behind the controls to an engineer that feels that my input is worth the money being paid by the bands. We have a week off from classes, so we will see what happens when they resume.
Keeping with the theme in the photo, we decided to go balls to the wall and make some changes here at Peepers. First we are going to Logic X for all our recording needs. We have used all the DAW's and every band, musician, well everyone has always been very at ease with Logic. Sorry to disappoint all the others out there but we really do believe in this product. I'm not at all saying any of the other DAW's are bad or don't work as well as Logic. We are an all Apple studio so it just makes sense to use the product built by Apple. We have also been testing new monitors and have decided on M-Audio and Yamaha for our recording needs. We have a great October planned with Noel Enobder coming back in to do some Uke music. Dick Hurtz has a bunch of new songs he really wants to get down, and of course as I mentioned in last post the MiniButters are here working out their new stuff. That's it for now, please come on back and see what's happening later
All around nice guy and Chief Engineer at Peepers.
