Getting back into recording! Yay

Finally have my ‘day job’ schedule under control enough to where im starting to dabble in music again :slight_smile: just finished the setup on the new control room today. Been way too long! Did my first music mix in years since i started with barracuda networks as a software developer. Its been several years. Way too long. Good to see theres still some old friends hanging out on this forum!


Simply lovely!!!

Looks great!! I’m excited to see/hear what you’re creating :slight_smile:
Good to see you around again too!!

cha ching…impressive

Cool setup, very colorful! What is that art piece to the right side of the desk (pic 2 & 3)? It looks surreal, and glows! It has a certain elegance to it, like double-helix DNA. Big room. Are you thinking of recording bands again?

Very nice… and so clean! My studio was also my study and also a spare room for storing “stuff” during our *very long renovations. It still hasn’t recovered and will remain my study, but also still has remnants of “stuff”. Fair to say I won’t be posting images anytime soon.

Great to hear you are getting back into it all. Hopefully the fire gets lit and the time management stays in your favour.

Goodness! What a setup! What a room! What a view! :clap:

Looks like a led-strip-light based, er, light! Very, very cool looking though.

Yes, there does seem to be an ‘overexposure’ of light in the picture from that thing. Causing the unusual glow from it.

Well you’ve had four months; are we gonna hear something?

Hey @AJ113 …Good to see you back on the forum!

It’s actually been 1 yr + 4 months.

I’m really not producing or recording anything meaningful. It’s almost all spoken-dialogue compressed and normalized for television news broadcast type stuff. I haven’t played or worked on any music in about 3 years. I probably should have titled this thread ‘Getting back into audio post-production normalization! Yay’ instead haha.

I think you wrote some kind of essay on metering a while back (like a LONG time ago). These days I basically remove noise artifacts from the voiceover, then try to park the LUFS at -18 per the broadcast station.
