Let’s Talk Social Media

Whew, this should be a fun topic huh? 🙂 As a small business owner, the role of things like Facebook and Twitter in promoting my business is something that I need to pay attention to quite a bit.

I like working within limitations when I make music, often creating my own self-imposed restrictions as a means to help spur on creativity.

And The Best Sounding DAW Is…..

Not sure what’s causing it, but in the last few weeks I’ve been getting a lot of people sending me emails about my Live versus Logic Sound Quality post from a couple years ago.  Figured it was time to maybe update my views on the topic.  Or maybe clarify my views my be a better term.

The New Studio Desk

For awhile now I’ve been thinking about building a new desk for my studio, one that would be custom-designed for my own personal needs.  In the past I’ve maintained two separate set ups in all of my studios, the main work area where I do all of my critical mastering work and most of my writing, and a separate set …
