Who would spend two years building their own sound studio? We must be mad! If you haven’t read the story, you can read it here: Building The Studio – Part One. Building the studio was hard enough. Here it is finished:
Well, almost. But that was really only half the battle! Now we had to wrap our heads around the hardware and software behind the studio!
It was originally only built so that Finch could give drum lessons, or at the very least drum in peace and quiet, without disturbing anyone else.
However, as Finch started to buy more kit, it started to morph into a recording studio…
Here’s his desk. Looks like the control panel for a Boeing 757…! But thank god this thing stays on the ground, as the early teething problems with the desk and the Logic Pro X software have been a minefield! If we had actually been flying a plane, we’d have killed more passengers than every plane-bomber to date!
Credit to Finch, he’s worked through it, and now knows what he’s doing! But it wasn’t always that way. We were in the studio a few times and belted out some cool sounds, but the hardware and software weren’t playing ball. Weeks went by working on the song, but not being able to actually record anything!!! Talk about fucking frustrating!
The hardest thing with digital, as opposed to analogue, is that one thing doesn’t just do ONE THING. If you pre-set something, then press the wrong buttons in the wrong order… Oh me, oh my…! To say this part of the project was annoying would be an understatement. BUT… we’ve got it all sorted now, and the track is getting laid down. Hoo-rah!
Keep reading and stay in touch for a sneak peek of the song as it progresses to being a massive top 10 hit this year…!
Until Next Time…!
