Oh, I can see you're eyeing me, I'm just pretty sure it ain't cuz the harddrive all blowed up.

Maybe we should head south to Mexico, climb into a tequila bottle and discuss this.

Oh wait. I have an album to finish. And bills to pay.

Let's revisit this at our annual stockholders meeting right after we're finished with preproduction, tracking, overdubs, mixing and mastering.

Until then, I highly recommend shots on every Saturday night between now and then.

Sure, it's Monday. But with the right attitude adjustment, it can quickly become Saturday night!

Should we really let that come between us? I think not.

Let the banning begin...

Sorry. I don't know how to keep my big d*mn mouth shut. :D

This forum definitely has a super-qualified user group. I can't imagine that some of these guys have questions.

Not everyone has questions, but if you should have one, you can be pretty damn sure that the answers are coming from somebody who knows what they are talking about.

Hi all,

I'm John Glass, broadcast engineer and state licensed low voltage electrician. I started messing with audio gear at age 8 or so. My father was a hi-fi enthusiast in the fifties and sixties, building his own speaker cabs with JBL and Jensen parts, electronics from Fisher, Wolensak reel to reel, etc...as he upgraded over the years I got the hand me downs. I fell in love with tape the first time I plugged the mic in the Wolensak and heard the playback. I still like it better for some things than any digital recorder out there (well, maybe not a Radar). The first time I visited a radio station (KPFK-FM) as a kid in grade school, I was fascinated by all the equipment in the control rooms. I was itching to get my hands on those faders and tape machine remotes. I actually dropped out of school to work at that very station as a teenager. Stayed there 12 years. Over that time, I did everything there was to do at a major market station. From answering the phones to changing tubes in the transmitter. Good times. I got trained to mix there by a lady who went on to a career at NPR, where she is a senior production engineer.
Consoles have always been my favorite toys to play with. One day I hope to own a large format classic analog dreamboat, but for now I make do with a couple of little Mackies, a sweet little ADM 8 x 2, an Altec 1567, and my small (10 fader) Studer digital broadcast console.

Since I don't have room for a studio right now, I get my fix by engineering live music broadcasts for the local community radio station every couple of weeks.

This place looks like it is gonna be a great resource. Thanks for putting it up.
