Hey Joe.
First..."knock knock"...smile you're on camera. Secondly you'll need to scan your retina using the scanner to the right of the studio door. Anyone not recognized by the retina scan, AND not on the daily recording ledger will be considered an intruder and dealt with swiftly by my crack security staff...UNLESS...
1) you have a bag of pot confirmed by drug sniffing dogs OR 2) carrying a bag of Old Stamp K's confirmed by cymbal sniffing dogs. In these two cases only you'll be escorted to the artists control room entrance in back.
BTW, my drones have detected you've parked in a spot on the street used by my neighbors son. You'll have to move it.

Actually we've finally started the test recording phase. My son who designed the wiring, patch bays, and integration of the analog board with the 8 track tape machine with the computer is now working full time at the studio for a composer who writes for TV and film. He's engineering at his very substantial home studio, playing guitar, bass even drums on some ques ...he's even written a few things and been in on meetings with the director and producers of these projects. Basically he's getting paid to learn how things really work. It's a great opportunity for him resulting in our timeline being pushed back substantially.

Attached overhead rails to the beams today. Two more to come. These make it possible to place any overhead mic for drums, a horn section or even vocals anywhere in the room without the need for a mic stand. The corresponding cables run up and over the beams instead of cluttering the floor. Really makes a somewhat small room feel much bigger.

Sinc,
That looks really good, it's been a long haul! I did a much lesser version of that overhead idea, but very helpful nonetheless. In the appropriate places above the drums I attached goosenecks to the beams above my drop ceiling in the drum room (I decoupled the goosenecks from the beams with foam) and poked holes in the drop ceiling , brought the gooseneck through the holes, and ran the cords above the ceiling. It does make the room much "bigger." You can see one of the Shure 81's in this picture "just hovering."

Anyway, congrats again, the room is looking great!
How do those dogs react to Monk's Ale and SCDR's?

Not following ya here pal. Those cymbals are old A's.

Sorry Sinc,
I was referring to this hilarious reply of your to Joe!
Pot... Monk's Ale
Old K's... SCDR
