Ok so my life is busy... but I get to do fun stuff.

Thursday night was a dream com true:
http://picasaweb.google.com/fallen2stealth/TheDifferenceInBlue

I got to play with the fun toys...
I did this volunteer at school from 6-8pm and it was a blast... The head librarian arranged everything but she wanted a student to operate the equipment this time, not her. She was amazed with how it turned out I no one realized that I had never done this type of work before... it was Awesome

and for those who were expecting something else in the pictures... I am not that lucky, I only wish I was.

Very good Stealth,

Boy do those pictures take me back! I hope you had a lot of fun.

Have you yet learned how to say, "Perfect! Can we do it one more time, just that way?"

Mixers are so tiny nowadays! Did you get to edit the tracks as well?

Glad you had a lot of fun. [Applause]

Yeah - same here. Those are awesome. I've been on both sides - I did concert sound as a tech, as well as recording with a band and playing live.

I love how computers are actually involved now, rather than being a cute "add-on".

Actually... I manage to find a way to get the band to ask if they can retake the section... (gotta amplify just the right part. The fun part is: the head librarian is wanting to set me up with my own studio so we can get a real sound lab going (My name tag for the window is going to be in D`ni, Ancient, and english... (just cause I can).

The school may be providing me with my own computer to run Audacity on so I can do mastering. I can do minor editing on the mixer (more if I upgrade to the Roland: The big gray one one that was in the pictures but I wasn't using) my little mixer is a Mackie 1202-VLZ Pro, and I am using a BOSS BR-900CD recording mixer.

When all is said and done I will have everything put into audacity to do editing and will have to send pictures of the current/upcoming studio spaces. more stories after I get this thursdays session finised (we are dubbing vocals for their cover of RHCP's "Under the Bridge" as well as acouple of new tracks) after that I will really start to have fun.

nice way to brag

I wish my school had money to spend on me. But why do you need a seperate computer to run Audacity? From the free trial I used awhile back it isn't a very computer intesive program and garage band looks a lot better.

I haven't used Audacity, but I've used garage band to a limited extent. I can see how a sound editing program would require a beefier computer; I have a fairly decent iMac, and garageband uses most of my system resources and I do nothing but play with synthesized tracks.

Garageband is a serious pig for RAM.

Soundtrack is better, but does slightly different things.

Audacity (IMHO) is just a toy...but at least it's a small one [Big Grin]

You should check out the thread WinterSolstice posted in mid-month: Music Software . We were talking about all the tech stuff that goes into music recording/editing nowadays.
