So as the title says, this week has been a BIG change of scenery for me, as I spent most of it working at SonicaStudios in London (This was the news hinted at the end of last week's post). It was a refreshing break from my usual work, and the studio itself is a lovely facility with some great people to work alongside. Lots of voice-over recording sessions, mixing singing groups and setting/packing up recording sessions, including some Japanese voice-over, and meeting a guy I see on TV every week. Pretty awesome! There was lots to learn too, as their native system was Pro Tools rather than my usual Ableton, and their plugin and hardware suites (including a 48 track stereo broadcast mixing console!) were huge! Nevertheless, I think I've got the basics sorted, and I look forward to returning on Monday for some more audio action!
Because of the extensive time spent there, there wasn't a lot of time to carry on with my own work or client work, but even so, I still managed some more animation mixing for a new project (Details will be revealed closer to the release), and sorted drums and keyboards for another Better Than The Book track. Spending over 90 minutes on the train each day, also gave me time to work on some lyrics and track titles, so some progress has been made there, though it's not quite finished yet. The track titles are almost finished though, so I may be doing an announcement soon. Just need to let them settle :D
Next week I'm back to SonicaStudio for a few days, then I have a busy end of week for my amazing Granddad's 90th Birthday celebration. As such, there may not be an update next week, or if it is, it'll be either on Thursday (early), or Sunday (late). We shall see! Until then (or Saturday 18th) take care and thanks for supporting JabunAudio.
