New studio coming in 2024!
Me: “Alexa, disassemble the studio and carefully pack everything.”
Alexa: “I’m sorry, I didn’t quite get that.”
“In the beginning…”
Twenty three years ago, I set up my first digital recording studio at home in a converted upstairs bedroom. Armed with Cool Edit software (Adobe Audition’s forgotten relative) and a new Pentium II computer, I mounted a microphone in a small closet, hit record and started with the “test-test” “check-check one-two’s” and “In another world….”
Recording take after take, I stepped in and out of the cozy confines to listen to what I had just voiced, striving to replicate the sound I was used to hearing from the pro recording studio at the radio station I worked at.
As I prepare to move my studio to a new home in 2024, I realize that a lot has changed in 23 years – and nothing much has changed.
“I’m older, but things are lighter!”
I’m recycling a 32 inch LED TV/monitor I bought back in the day. What a workout! It’s at least 75lbs and still works fine, but I haven’t used it forever. I should have exercised with it through Covid and gotten ripped! Here’s a photo of my first home studio in 2001.
New demo for 2024 is in the works. Cannot believe this demo is already 4 years old!
