So, we are about half way through wiring up the console. I would have never imagined it would be so massive. I am using 2 48 bantam patch-bays. Everything will be going through them. No more moving cables and fighting with spiders. The great Osie Bowe from Compass Point is designing and making all the cables. I thought that I was going to be able to do it,lol never.Mr. Bowe is doing a great job and has thought of everything.Last night we got about 1/2 the console wired up, the patch-bays are done. Tonight we should have most of the console done. So all thats really left is the new Monster Mac. I am retiring the old faithful I- Mac and loading up this new beast. Mr. Bowe says it will be easy.................

I am sooo close!
Here is the Great Mr. Oswald Bowe of Compass Point Studios sorting out the control room. He has totally created the perfect practical work area. I cant wait.
 We fired up the computer for the first time and of course it came with the wrong O S!!! After all the conversation I had with the supplier they still sent it wrong!! Mad

I ran my first test signals last night!
Crystal clear!
After a few days fighting with the computer and Digidesign I am finally up and running thanks to the Great Mr. Bowe and the people at Sweetwater.
 We also have the Control Room sounding perfect. I had to slip the desk back about 3 1/2' so that I could get the near-fields off the wall. Now the sound is balanced and lovely where I sit.
Its going to be a great weekend. Very Happy

erm... So anyone else using Leopard? Confused

OK,  I am getting really close. In fact I plan to start experimenting with miking the drums this weekend. Keep in mind that I have never recorded acoustic drums, should be interesting.My NT-5's arrived just in time and the Heil 40 has been waiting for a couple months.
 I have been told that I need to put up more pictures. The wife got a nice new Nikon for her birthday so we shall work on that.
 The engineer was doing some final soldering last night and we plan to get together again tonight to install Tranzport and to reinstall my plug-ins. The Furman headphone system is up and running perfectly and the Mac/Leopard has been flawless.(knock wood) Smile

Messing around and planning with all them new toys is great fun. Just watch out for that intense void of emotion and the depressive emptiness that follows once it's all actually done and done and up and working. No more new toys to plan for. No more setting stuff up.

Be sure to fill that void with a lot of recording and writing of music instead!  Cool

Yup! You're done, sitting there looking at it, looking at you, judging the creativity you aspired to for when it was finished...then you go and have a beer and watch a dvd.

This is me with my pride and joy!
