Fall officially begins the new recording season...

Now that the cold weather is upon us, it is time to get back into the studio and record some tracks! If you are anything like me, I tend to spend the warm weather writing songs and playing shows, rather than being inside holed up recording (unless I have a band to record). Now is the time when I start to get excited to get back in front of the microphones to record what I have been working on. Kind of like reading a great book--every time that I am not reading it I am still thinking about when I will be able to have the time to get back to reading. Writing and recording can be that way, too, as right now I cannot wait to have even a few minutes to plan, record, or mix. 

The planning right now is for a band from Fairview Park, Ohio, called Violet Ray. They are going to record a 6 song EP with me at their house in the next month and I am already obsessed with how I am going to get the sounds that I am envisioning in my head. There was a point today when I was texting one of the band members about my ideas for microphones and mic preamps on certain instruments and realized that I was being kind of a nut. I stopped texting after that, but am still thinking about the combinations that will produce the best sounds. Well, I guess that it is better to have someone recording you that is obsessed about the sounds--even though the recording doesn't even start for nearly a month....Haha

As far as the new gear, I have an Audio Technica AT802 coming this week, but that is kind of a small deal compared to what else is coming.... I have a Black Lion Audio B12a microphone preamp on the way!  That is very exciting because it is the first of the API 312 type preamps that I will have.  They are very much the sound of American rock-n-roll.  I will probably use it for all sorts of things when tracking individually, but what will I use it for in a live session?  Hmmm...I guess that will take some experimentation and thinking.  The reality is that I use many different types of preamps and am super excited with any new ones that I get.  This is no exception.  Most likely, I will track with it on something, but then re-amp tracks that would benefit from a little kick in the backside.  Sometimes that happens after a recording session....

Best wishes to all.  Feel free to comment or contact me.  I love to hear what everyone else is in to.....

    This is very nice decision from them about starting of new recording seasons that is pretty important for new tracks. For writing of best essay works you can use [url=https://www.rushmyessays.org/]rush my paper[/url] that also charge cheaply from their users.
