Hi John, welcome back. Looks like you were working with some great folks. I have made records for Lee Roy, Jonell, and Keb' Mo'. Real fine artists, all. Where were you working?
They all have Ed/Rose stories. (well, Jonell and Lee Roy, such great people, eh?) Don't worry I won't repeat them...
I was mostly at a little home studio that was absolutely great, virtually unknown but destined to be a real roots hangout. Called Deep Field.
Just to give an idea what this place is about, I was pretty sure I knew where all the available original UA Mic Input modules were. And I walk into this guy's basement and he has 12!!!
. In a rack. Working.
We did some tracking in the little rooms there and those amps were so brilliant I just used them to go to 8 tracks of ProTools. When came time to finish those tunes up I ran the PT ouputs back through the line side of the UA amps and just put them all at unity gain. Mix finished!
I'll keep everyone posted about the project. I think it's very, very cool.
Ed, you in LA?
PS I guess some of you folks might make it down to Austin this weekend. I'm probably going down...
