Studio photos

Posted on November 01, 2009 by D' MacKinnon

Finally got around to uploading some photos of the studio. Most of the summer was spent doing the construction. There are still some items left like sound treatment and equipment upgrades. For those in the know, the Mackie board does not touch the recording signal path, it’s strictly there for live and composition. Recording all goes through some nicer pre-amps.
