Greetings! It’s been a busy few months and I have not posted any updates lately. I did some work on another planet recently, installing new patch bays and wiring for Michael Selverne in his NC studio “Welcome to Mars”. It’s out of this world! ... See MoreSee Less

You do excellent work Dave. It doesn’t hurt to have a loyal, loving pup for quality assurance though 😊.

I think you missed one right there…

That's a good pard there!

I need some advice on a multi pin for my drums. Call me 8643045815

My last tech trip was through Florida, where I visited with several of my existing clients, and a few new ones. One in particular, Mr Jim Devito of Retrophonics Recording had this hanging on his wall. He said it was custom made for the Allman Bros. Band many moons ago and he ended up with it and all it’s pieces. Pretty cool to see the names on pieces of tape above the input jacks… Oh how far it has come since then! ... See MoreSee Less

How cool! Hope your doing good cuz….hope to see y’all at the pig pickin the end of July …love y’all!

Ha! Very cool. I bought Jim's old Trident 80B about 12 or so years back, which I just sold last year. Great guy, cool place near the beach! In fact that 80B smelled like the beach for about a year after I took it up north. Lol

This is awesome. Enjoy that sandwich, too. Love ya

Next time you visit Florida, give me a shout. I am no longer in Jersey. The Amek/Tac Scorpion lives in the Tampa area now and does need some attention.

Very cool, man that sandwich looks good

That looks like 69-72 era

That’s very cool

That is so neat!

Spent the last few weeks re-capping the last 12 modules in the AMEK 9098i at Ricky Skaggs studio in Hendersonville, TN and 64 channels, faders, and center section of the SSL 9000J at SAE Institute in Nashville, TN. Big thanks to Mike Brady for coming from CA to help me with this task! About 2800 capacitors replaced… ... See MoreSee Less

I re-cap a lot of old stuff here in retirement. My biggest "issue" is removing the old caps/solder. Maybe I should invest in a solder vacuum station.

heroic!!😊😉

That's a lot of freaking capacitors 😳💯

Introducing: Fred Story of Storyline Music + Mix and his new Atmos room located in Charlotte, NC.
TAS designed and built this studio at Fred’s residence earlier this year. It features a 7.1.4 Genelec speaker array and a remote controlled main video monitor and curtains, which allow for a beautiful view over the lake when desired for that “creative zen vibe”. This is the 3rd studio that we have built for Fred over the years, and he says he loves it and it is hopefully the last one he will need. I think we will need to build additional storage for the many more awards he will obtain in the future! All our best Fred!

I told David hourly that my new studio wildly exceeded my expectations. When it comes to studio design and implementation, as the NASA astronauts used to say…he’s a steely-eyed missile man!

He's the best!!!!!

Beautiful work!!

Awesome work my friend!

YOU THE MAN, BEAUTIFUL

I recently learned that one of my clients and new friends of only a couple of years lost his life in an automobile accident. Thomas Hughes was a Protools instructor at Full Sail University and had recently become the owner of an AMEK Mozart console. He was a unique guy with a passion for music and recording and was excited to have a large analog desk. On my last two trips to Florida, I stayed at his home while in Orlando and spent some time working with and getting to know him. Rest in Peace Tom Hughes.Thomas Hughes and his Mozart. ...

Rest In Peace Thomas. I’m sorry about your friend Dave. I remember you talking about him and what a cool guy he was. Take care my friend, I hope all is well with you and your loved ones.

T.A.S. is saddened to hear that musician, producer, engineer, and all around nice guy Chris Garges has passed. Chris was the proprietor of Old House Studios in Charlotte, which has an AMEK Angela console and is how I met him several years ago doing a service call. He was a driving force in his musical community and will be missed by many. RIP buddy! ... See MoreSee Less

A distinctive and unique aroma, however I prefer “Solder Flux” by SSL 😉

I've smelt that smell before! 🤭

Don't let the magic smoke out

Big news from longtime client and friend Fred Story…When I announced our name change here last week, I mentioned that there was more news to come. And here it is...

We have sold our gorgeous, fabulous-sounding studios to Tim Campbell, owner of Vocal Ink Production in Maryland, who is expanding into Charlotte. At the end of this week, Tim will take over ownership of the studios and I will begin the process of building a NEW gorgeous, fabulous-sounding private facility - where I will continue doing the work I love. (Tim is graciously allowing me to continue working here until my new room is completed.)

These changes have been in the works for some time, and I'm thrilled to be able to finally share them. If you'd like to get all the details, the story is hitting major trade publications today. Here's a link to one of them:
