Presenting, for your listening pleasure, a new joint venture between Jack The Bear and myself – Jack ‘n’ Sam’s Raging Headfest. It’s just us talking freely about stuff – mostly music related – with special guests and all the great stories they bring. This inaugural episode sees us chatting with the venerable Steve James, producer/engineer extraordinaire, Hope you enjoy!
I am having a real blast this week doing the final recording on, and then mixing a five track release from Indonesian group ‘Nidji’. I have never met a nicer bunch of guys, and with talent to boot! Steve James is back in the studio with me for Nidji, and its been a total pleasure to be working with him as always, and he has taken well to his honorary Indonesian name; Sir Geez-ah, innit.
Just got a new UAD2 QUAD card to add to the grunt department! Now with two UAD2 Quadcore DSP cards in the machine, we have a sickeningly large amount of gorgeous grunt to run obscene numbers of the wonderful digital re-creations of all our fave boxes!
Geeking out hard in the studio today, watching performance meters and being very excited about them!
It’s been a lot of fun to have Steve back in the studio with me for a couple of weeks mixing the beautiful album he has recorded and produced for Ray Sorenson. Delightful songs and very tasteful playing. A joy to mix!
