2003 – HVR – my first commercial studio 10 years ago

So I’ve been digging through some pictures and found These Gems from about 10 years ago…

I was 19 years old and moved into the 3rd floor of 115 2nd Ave North Saskatoon. It was RIGHT downtown saskatoon. It had a conference room in it that had the most amazing sounding vault. It was about 560 sq feet. They build me a room inside of a room.

One of my classrooms, and stepping stones.

Not one good piece of gear in the racks, but damn did I make a lot of records with this stuff. One of my classrooms. The Funniest part is… I think I only kept 7 things in these pictures…

Having trouble distinguishing your dBVU from your dBFS? Do you set your recording levels by the meters but the levels just don’t come out the way you think they should? One of the “secrets” of the pros for making quality recordings is knowing how to read and set signal levels throughout the recording chain to get the most out of both the signal and the gear. This free on-line applet explains the fundamentals of this subject in an interactive, step-by-step way.
