My place has that Polynesian look and feel. Besides the studio, there's the dozen 30 foot queen palms in the back with a few sago palms, banana trees, citrus and of course the pool and spa. A large stone Tiki god rules the entire area.

Once someone gets into the pool and spa it's hard sometimes to get them back to work.

Then again, this is San Diego county, it's hard to get anyone to work around here especially if the surf's up.


You left Matilija for that?

It was tough leaving behind the gangs, crime, graffiti, buzzing helicopters, surly cops, english challenged store owners, gun shots at night, break-ins, Hollywood people, cockroach restaurants, and the nightly din of the city that required earplugs for a good rest. And that was the good part!

Nice control room.
I love that old honey-stained knotty pine paneling.
FWIW- I've  been told its virtually impossible to procure these days- at least in my neck of the woods.

I notice that those monitors are squeezed tightly between the soffets and the desk.  
No issues with that configuration??

No.  They are on stands, and there is more room than there appears from that angle.

Rather than a smaller sized one, I'd love to have a higher resolution version of this video actually. Would that be possible, Terry?

What a great atmosphere I can see in there.

Aaah.  Another one of my projects.  I laid a shelf for the computer to sit on, built an oak frame, laid plexiglass in it, weather sealed it, and put some latches on.  The backside is a pressboard door with weatherstripping, and two fans built in.  One is a large draw fan that has a wetdry hose attached to it that goes into the A/C, and pulls cool air in.  Then there's a pucsh fan to get the hot air out.  I also made a fan on the top of the rack to pull air straight out, but it's been noisy, so I disconnected it.  The MacPro runs way cooler than my G4 anyway, so I don't need it to run.  The hole is good enough.

The lack of fan noise is a godsend.  Now if only my EMT fans were less noisy.  Forget recording in the room.  It's listening I'm concerned about.

William, those are JBL S7Rs.  They belonged to my father.  He got them in like 1970 or something, to use in our living room.  A pair of these drive the bullet and midrange driver:

But honestly, I never use them.  The Genelecs sound so good in that space.

I forgot to tell you about that.  Those were on the walls of the room originally.  the house was built in the '20s.  I was careful removing them when we demo'd the room.  Some of them were 18 ft. long.  Forget finding knotty pine T&G.  Try finding ANYTHING in 18 ft. lengths!
