Recording drums in a studio

Last night I went to a studio to record a drummer for my and my friend’s upcoming song. It was the first such experience for me. Recording drums is quite a process but what an experience of being in a well-equipped studio, too. The song should be mixed and mastered before the end of the month. It’s exciting. We starting writing it almost two years ago. In the meantime, we started working on a new one. Hopefully, it won’t take that long.

My son pulled his desktop mic today and it stopped working. I opened it, one wire got pulled from its printed circuit board. Got my soldering iron and fixed it. He was like “That’s the coolest thing I saw today”. 😊

Today we played Ticket to Ride for the first time. We played a Great Lakes map. Kids took first and second spots and we third and fourth. But what’s important, everyone loved the game. We also have the world map game in the box for next time.

I was watching the video of the free & open-source iPad synth and saw this guitar. The black and white frets, like in a piano, is a genius change, in my opinion. Never thought of that. But someone did. There’s another one like that in the background.

Bought and installed NAS: Synology DS218+. Now thinking of the best ways to use it for business and personal uses. Seems quite powerful but also a lot to learn. How to use with Time Machine etc, what to keep on it, how to use it for photography and videos.

Today I had the pleasure to work with a professional drummer, rehearsing the drum part for one of my songs, right in my basement. We’ll hit the studio next.

Attending my third #TEDxWinnipeg. A full day of interesting presentations awaits.
