[gran]studio rebuild

Posted in gear with tags , on 29/04/2010 by sync24

i thought i’d post a couple of studio pics as i’ve been having a move about with it all.
here it is at home, takes up one corner of the bedroom in the flat (all set up, nothing plugged in, so it looks neat):

i have had this set-up since july 09, previously it was all on a table in the opp corner, but that was too imposing in the room.
ffwd to easter 2010 and i thought it’d be a good idea to set up at work, in the foley studio and try and do some recordings over the easter hol.
so here it all is set up:

you can see there’s a few more bits in the 2nd pic…!
anyway, i managed to get a few sessions in, first session was with Tom, had a good acid blast, then made some noise. managed about two hours in there and got it all recorded too.
had two more sessions in there after that, both recorded, mainly noise stuff. one massive problem in there though, is that the air con just recirculates the air in the room, so after an hour or so you are feeling pretty nasty. the most i managed was about 2 hours in one sitting.
i’ll do something with the recordings anyway, i had some fun, and some nice sounds appeared out of it all.
had to take all this down toward the end of the break as i wandered in on a load of MA students standing in the middle of it all looking a bit bemused trying to record a voice-over.
all the kit is back home now and in the process of getting set up again.
here we go (with my two new shelves holding the 727 and 202 for now):

yeah, and i love shitty camera-phone pics, especially from the crappy iPhone!!!
