Studio toys and working slowly

Been spending a lot of time in the studio getting to know some new gear. I recently picked up an EV/Blue Cardinal condenser and a Studio Projects C1. So far the C1 is living up to the hype, sounds clean and balanced with nothing more than an ART Tube PAC (which is an excellent secret weapon btw). The Cardinal is a much more fickle beast it seems. Proximity effect is there in a big way, but I’m really liking it for soft vocal stuff. Still not sure where it will fall in the rotation.

New songs are done, and ready to be recorded but time to do it is at a premium these days. Hoping to remedy that because one song is dominating any new ideas, and I think it will continue to until it’s out of my system. It’s creating a creative logjam, and there is a lot of wood coming down the stream…so I’ve gotta clear it.

Finding Jack Conte’s blog very motivational these days, the man’s energy and passion are contagious.  Really has me wanting to take a stab at a Videosong, or something like it at least. Back to the studio…

Stay hungry,

-J
