Please send prayers and good vibes to Chris Jackson and our friends at Blue Sproket Sound in VA. There was a gas leak related explosion in their complex Saturday that totally destroyed their business and a few others adjacent to them. Thankfully no one was there or injured! ... See MoreSee Less

I learned yesterday that Mark Brunner has passed away unexpectedly. I was introduced to Mark many years ago by our mutual friend Jon Pines. Mark worked at Shure for over 30 years and was serving as vice president. I always enjoyed working at his studio (Reelsound Chicago) because it was like hanging with a college buddy. We would play records and listen to music from our youth. He was a great drummer and lover of a great groove.
I spent a wonderful couple of evenings with Mark during this year’s NAMM event, having dinner and listening to some great musicians. Traveling to Chicago will never be the same for me. Prayers for his wife Jo and his family. Rest in Peace my brother in music. 💔

What you DO NOT want to find in your console! They love the heat and winter is coming!
Rodent urine erodes the traces. Cleaned up the mess and fixed a few module traces and all is well now...
Something like this may save you lots of grief:

I've heard that in some cases rat droppings on the pcb will actually improve a band's sound. But I trust your expertise Dave

I pull my strips every few months, and my master once a month to check for this and my cpu battery,,

Man, that sounds like ...

Oh, crap!

Built some patch bays last week for a 32 channel Rupert Neve Designs 5088 desk that is headed to Jamacia. Wish I was going with them!
Thanks to Donnie Duncan and Clay Van for the soldering and prep assistance!

Got some "finished" photos from Gar Ragland at Citizen Studios in Asheville NC. The renovated WWNC radio studio worked great as the control room for Gar and the way he works and records. The Rupert Neve Designs 5088 and the ATC speakers brought it all together. The large adjacent space is wired and ready to record in, and the venue on the first floor will be as well, once that renovation is completed. There will be Citizen Vinyl, a vinyl pressing facility that can be viewed by visitors, as well as a record store on the first floor as well. It has been a great project to be involved with! ...

The last few weeks has been busy with shop repairs on some Neve rack modules, AMEK Media 51 module recaps, an MPS 15 PSU repair or two, and a trip to Atlanta for a studio construction site visit. I also did an automation repair at Grey Cat Sound for Patrick Phillips on his 60 channel Media 51 in Peachtree City, GA. This next week... more shop repairs and acoustical design. Happy to be busy!

Finally got back to Asheville NC to finish installing the Rupert Neve Designs 5088 at Citizen Studios. Gar Ragland has moved in! We finished the room acoustics a few months ago and received the console a few weeks ago. All the gear is hooked up and ready to go. I will post final “cleaned up” photos with the cool color changing LED art deco lights sometime soon. ... See MoreSee Less
