I ordered myself a Custom Shop Carvin back in September. It was the delivered this afternoon. Here’s a few pics. Expect a review soon.
Greetings folks. It’s just a rough week for me this week as far as getting videos uploaded and done. I am trying to work every chance I get but I’m spending most time in studio actually sorting out and getting Steven Slate Drums 4 setup and working in Sonar X2. It works fine straight up.. but I wanted to route EACH track/drum in SSD4 to a separate track/fader in Sonar x2. Its a laborious process but I think I have it down.
I’m now going to work on getting some of my track presets setup in Sonar X2 so I can simply “drag and drop” track presets over to my EDIT window and create the new tracks with all the sends, FX, names, Inputs and Outputs all setup in advance. Once I sit down to work on the recording bit.. I am going to fly.. I don’t want to have to click this.. go to a menu that.. etc.. just drag.. pick up my axe.. and record a take. No wasting time.. the ideas will come fast.. and will get recorded fast. That is my goal.
So again, sorry for the lack of a video this week… I should have plenty of action next week… but meanwhile.. I suggest you check me out on Twitter @ PeterJCruz. I tweet from my phone all the time so you can keep up with latest happenings from me whether I am updating my blog here.. or Youtube.. or whatever..
Rock on folks!
Sorry for the delay folks.. it’s been a BEAR to get the time to shoot the video.. and then ONCE I had done it.. trying to marry the audio from my workstation (which had the SM57 signal recorded into SONAR X2), and the video from the camera. I had to do a TON of edits to “remove” the camera audio so you could hear the SM57 alone… I’m still a n00b at this video stuff. =)
All things considered.. the BIGGEST HURDLE I did have was… CAMERA “audio” is recorded at 48k.. SO if you want to “sync” external audio with the video.. it’s a GREAT IDEA to use 48k also.. LOL!!! Once I had that figured out.. the sync’ing was MUCH easier…
Anyways, enjoy!! The playing is messy.. and my mic’ing technique not the best.. but it should give you some good overview of what this tube beast is capable of.
