Made an EP with the guys in RZMNR. Proud of the result! The good kind of gnarly and nasty stoner vibes, if you ask me.
Finally got around building my second Don Classics NV37EQ (first on described over here). Aren’t they pretty? This time I took some more pictures during the build. Highly recommended, used it on a few sessions since with great results. Getting great feedback too from engineer friends who borrowed it on their own sessions.
Lovely dutch postpunk vibes in this video from De Delvers, the first single of a record that I mixed over the course of the previous year. Have a listen!
A really simple DIY thingie, no need for a soldering iron here. I did this a year ago when I had accidentally dropped a LaCie external drive and the disk started acting funky. You can replace the internal disk that’s inside the enclosure without a lot of difficulty. Actually, it’s rather easy. And if your disk’s broken anyway and basically is reduced to nothing more than a brick, why not open it up and see if you can fix it?
I didn’t think much of it until every once and a while I saw people buying these disks again when they broke. They’re not exactly cheap, so next time, try what the guy in this video does before taking out your wallet again. Just so you know.
The result: a new life for your LaCie enclosure, with the disk brand and size of your choice! Mine’s been running happily for over a year.
It’s been an awful while since I last posted here (almost exactly a year!). Ever since becoming a father my music production output went into a steep decline. So naturally I currently focus on other – and equally fun – priorities.
Despite all that, I’ve done a fair amount of live mixing and a few live recordings (which aren’t released yet). A cool project I’m participating is also due next year (I mixed it), so expect some nifty stuff in a few months.
Nothing new on the DIY front either, although I’m planning on finishing a second Don Classics NV73. Hey, that’s not entirely true, I finally finished what’s actually a really important, often ignored, piece of gear: broadband absorbers. Made with Rockwool (a pack I got years ago as a present, this type is no longer manufactured), wood and Ikea DITTE fabric. Put together with bolts and a stapler. It’s actually really easy, I can recommend building things like this to everyone who’d like to improve their room acoustics.
Not bad, if I may say so myself 😉
Made a little playlist containing only live-recordings (recording on multitrack – mixed afterwards at home). Just to give you an impression of the recording quality that’s possible with this kind of approach. Have a listen!
Lovely piece of kit. Sounds the money. Highly recommended, from the Don Classics.
Ain’t she a beaut? More complex build than off-the-shelf kits though, still very doable, just lots of components.
Really proud of these recent additions to my online portfolio. Have a listen!
- No new DIY builds so far. It does take quite some time and funds, and that’s pretty much what I didn’t have at my disposal the last few months.
- Lots of Psychonaut live mixing in venues large and small all over the country. Lots of fun!
