    Is it possible to open up a new section that is dedicated to pictures of studios? I saw in another thread people asking for pics of Kurts studio... Not only would I like to see his studio, but everyone else who has some pics handy.... Or maybe we could just start posting pics in this thread, i dunno. I dont have any pics yet because I still dont have anyhting set up, but as soon as i do, Ill post up a pic. What do you guys say??

    hey chris (littledogaudio) Is that a sony board? Just wondering, It looks like the one I used in school. By the way, where did you get your farfield monitors.

    Yep, that's an old MCI 636.
    I mostly use it to monitor Protools and setup headphone mixes, and also heat the room.

    The big monitors are Tannot DMT-12's. I've had those since they first came out years ago. I love them.

    Did you go to the Recording Workshop in Chillicothe Ohio? I know they still run an MCI.

    Btw, Mci's make great boat anchors.

    re recording workshop

    Yeah, I went about 3 years ago, they had 2 of those consoles in two of their studios. I really enjoyed using those consoles, I liked the eq. and the built in patch bay. Theres nothing like mixing on a board without going through different pages for input faders, track fader, aux send, etc.

    Chris, that's a great set of pics, and a great looking studio! (I remember MCI gear, and that console, too! I've worked with JH-110 1/2 track machines, 1" 8 track, and the big monster, the 2" 24track as well. HATED those internel molex connectors that were always intermittant!)

    But the name of you studio is the coolest. (Magnetic North....) Is that taken from a line in a RUSH song (from the "Hold Your Fire" CD) or does it just refer to the compass point?

    In the 80's, I worked at MagnetiK Productions in Center City Philadelphia. (Spelled with a K, deliberately.) My own studio was in my home, much farther north of the area, and we dubbed it "Magnetik North". But by the time I went indie, it was a different name for different reasons (Weston Sound), but I always liked the idea of calling a place "Magnetic North"

    Glad someone is using it! So VERY cool, indeed! ;-)

    I came up with the name because at one time I was racing sail boats and learning to fly and it just struck me. Also, way back then (22 years ago) I actually used something called magnetic tape to record with, but I'm sure you don't remember those days. Lol

    How do you say it in India???

    Oh yeah, "blow me"

    I'm not THAT old.


    I started the studio when I was a senior in high-school.

    Never looked back.

    Don't go away MAD, Sidhu...... :twisted:

    Actually, one could learn a lot from this collection of wizened geezers. (that means ME too... hehehe)

    My first live sound gig was for Ray Charles in 1976, although I'd been doing stuff right out of HS in 1973, so that makes me FIFTY this coming July. (Arrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggg!!!! WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED!?!?!?!? I remember Lava lamps the FIRST time they came out! I look upon Henry Winkler now in horror, remembering what he USED to look like! Dont' even MENTION Farrah Fawcette now....Linda Ronstadt??? Aieeeeeeee!!!!!!)

    Actually, it's really not that bad. My ears have survived intact, I'm in better shape now (Atkins & excercize) than I was 15 years ago, and I've got gear that no one dared DREAM about 10 years ago. I can work out of my home studio and do things even the best record labels couldn't do 20 years ago. (oops, there are NO MORE RECORD LABELS now anyway....)

    Like a lot of guys on here, one of my strengths is having worked in BOTH the analog and digital worlds. And THAT, my young friends, is something we'll always have, that Sidha should hope for: EXPERIENCE. Heheheh....

    Keep on rockin', all us old farts out there! 8)

    I was just kidding.


    In America, "Blow Me" is a way of saying "i really like you"

    Hope I didn't offend.

    But ofcourse ! :D

    We have similar expressions of fondness here too.. only there in hindi and i wont bother...

    but to tell you ppl. the truth, I record and mix in this small 2 room place that i rented mid last year. No acoustic treatment. No great pres. No great converters. No great mics. Nothing actually. But $*^t loads of stuff that you guyz teach me. And im already building a reputition.

    Thank you.
