My rates are very low for the studio from a company that specializes in professional studio insurance - roughly 1.5% / year (replacement value, no depreciation) and includes lost wages due to theft, injury, or even a virus taking out the DAW.

I think if you look around you can find great insurance.


Ditto here.  Actually I was surprised at the price.  And Lloyds of London gave the best quote!

Wow, I pay more for flight insurance. Can you PM me the company, Brad?

Thanks.

Ilok has a protection against loss/failure program. I forget how much it is.

i am not talking about ZERO downtime.  which i have.  that's only good if your iLok breaks.  if your computer is stolen. or your iLok is stolen, not all manufacturers will just give you a new auth.

Talk to Joe, there is coverage for computer failure due to just about everything and I imagine the iLok is included in that...

This point can't be made enough!

You MUST insure the software that is authorized by the iLok!  If someone steals your iLok, almost NO manufacturer will help you.

As mentioned, the iLok insurance is only useful if the iLok breaks and you have it.  Then, you're cool.  But loose it or have it stolen and you're out of ALL of your software.  Insurance companies are cool with this concept, and you need to add your plug-ins, etc. on your gear list when you submit that for underwriting.

Looking at the photo of Bob Katzs room, which is posted in his book, Im just wondering what is behind that big curtain? The couch looks comfy. Im guessing its a big screen TV?

Also, there must be more to it than the photo shows.  Any photos shot from that mystery curtain toward the couch?

Behind the curtain is a half-hex window alcove with three windows; total about 6 feet wide and 6 feet at its deepest. The curtain forms a very subtle absorption of the midfrequency resonance of the alcove. But the alcove helps to increase the length of the room for low frequencies, thank goodness.

I'll try to do something about the reverse direction picture!
