Quick reminder: LAST DAY FOR LEANNAN SIDHE’S KICKSTARTER! They made minimum goal but have not yet made stretch goal! They have like 10 hours to go as of this morning so GO NOW!

Cool part about building a studio is that you’ve built a studio! Uncool part is that you’re never finished, because even if you don’t want to add anything, all the parts you switch around all the time end up turning into WRITHING PILE OF INFINITE RUBBER SNAKES, by which I mean cables, and you get crosstalk and loud and and and.

Also, you bring stuff in and take stuff out and you already had too much in there* and now EVERYTHING IS IN THE WAY. Everything. IN THE WAY. All of it.

So once in a while you have to take it all apart and put it back together, and then you get ideas, and then you’re in for it because now it’s a project. Now I have a new shelf out of scrap wood so I can use some previously wasted space in the closet**, I got better power into the closet and built a charging area for battery devices, a bunch of stuff is GONE GONE GONE, I fixed most but not all of a noise problem (only affecting monitor speaker playback, and only really loud, so not actually a work-stoppage issue), AND!

…improved my speaker monitor setup so much omg you guys.

Seriously it is so much better. I have speaker output now that sounds like reference headset output, only, you know, the speaker version. I have no idea whether this sounds important to you, but totally is.

Also it’s kind of a demonstration of how good my baffles are because the sound comes from ONE DIRECTION ONLY. ONE. NO BOUNCING. NONE FOR YOU.

Which is a little weird. But cool.

The only kinda silly part is that Reference Speaker Set A are along one wall and Set B are along a different wall so you have to spin around in the chair to get stereo comparisons. SHUT UP IT’S THE ONLY WAY IT FITS. If I turn them all on and spin around fast enough maybe I’ll get surround sound.

Now all I need are to add are shelves for the good monitors and also some shitty computer speakers on the desktop, since that’s sadly what most people use! Maybe I can use something off a old CRT monitor. Remember these?


Man, those sucked

Kickstarter!
