For as long as I can remember, when I'm at home on a Saturday, at around 4.40 I sit in front of the television, or radio, to listen to the football results, often with a cup of tea, how very English...
Yesterday was was one of those [Satur]days, I'd spent an unsuccessful afternoon recording...mainly due to the fact I'm hating the results I'm getting from my current equipment. The reality of this situation is though, that for now, it's the best I can afford.
So the afternoons matches are coming to an end, it's dark and rainy outside so I took a break for a few minutes and sit down and watch the BBC with a cuppa. My mic was still connected to my soundcard and just laying on my desk, and I'd been exploring the benefits (or not) of using Reaper...so here's 8 minutes of my Saturday...just in time to catch the news of Tottenham’s winner!
You can also hear the sound of my neighbour who lives below me playing his classical music CD's...luckily it wasn't shaking my floor that much on this occasion...I always tend to mix on headphones at home and then remix later through loudspeakers in the studio...I just wish he'd spend some money on some really decent headphones, I'd even recommend some if he was a little more approachable. Oh well, the joys of sharing a building with inconsiderate neighbours, each to their own, but I've got some great sound level meter readings should I ever need them and a nice little video of pictures on my wall shaking too
