lol – That looks exactly how we did all the recording for the last group project I was involved in, but instead of the ghetto blanket booth in front of a stair case, it was in the corner of my bedroom – we kept getting hit up by people asking which studio we were using cause it came out so good –

sometimes the session takes at my pre production set up have more life than the studio ones and we just end up using those and the pre/mic is a pos but man when i get the dollas for the rhodes and avalon . . .

Record U stole that article from a audio book i read over a year ago. It had an X-Ray image (Skeleton) of a a man with headphones on. They stole that whole article from the first chapter. Our maybe he wrote the article, either way great information. If anybody know the name of the book please refer to the readers on hear.
