Well, since being on holidays, I thought I’d run to the end and get all the studio done done done. But.. fitting it in with spending time with the family, plus bits of mixing and mastering that’s come in, has left me in a similar pace of work….consistent but pretty slow.
Am at the stage where I’ve built all the storage I think I can / need. I need to clear the whole room out, hoover, chuck bits of wood away, then repaint parts of the walls where I’ve grazed it. Then put my gear out bit by bit.
I built a set of drawers.. one will be a mic drawer, so I’m going to make bespoke compartments for those: there’s a day gone! But, I know, if I don’t do it now, it will never get done.
Am still considering desk options: I was pretty set on a Sabre as I’ve used one before, mainly at Seamus Wong. A weird one popped up last month and another since on Ebay: a Mod 3 : I think I love how this looks. It’s modular (as is the Sabre) so I can recap at my leisure. I got outbid on the one on Ebay, so eyes peeled. In the mean time, a Sabre went for 300 quid… a bargain. Hey ho.
Other news..well, being off normally means I forget about the day job, but this year I’ve been in and out due to doing a studio at Summer Sundae festival. The idea being bands pop in and record.. hoping they don’t just do acoustic versions.. really want people to get all ELO in there so it sounds like a ‘proper’ studio session.
If you’re going to the festival (or playing) and want to book a session with me, more details are here.
