Since new folks are coming in lately, I should do another intro, maybe.
I'm Zac Anger. Bi, 28, from Pennsylvania but now I live in Utah. I used to play music a lot, and run a studio and stuff, but now I write computer things, mostly in JS.
Politically I'm fairly far left.
My posts are usually just social, but sometimes I post about kpop (any Orbits here?), code things, food, alcohol, and how much I miss trees and rivers now that I live in the almost-desert.
@zacanger Did I know you ran a studio?
@Ricardus Probably not, I don't talk about it much. That was a long time ago
@Ricardus Oh, you're a recording engineer! I should've noticed that
@zacanger Tell me about this studio.
@Ricardus There's not much to say about it. There was a guitar shop where I used to live that had a venue on the third floor and studio in the basement, and they didn't have anyone who knew about recording so I just kinda wound up with the job.
It was small, and I was the only person there, but business stayed kinda steady for a while. I doubt it's still there, that was around 9 years ago.
@zacanger What recording format? A console? Mics? Outboard?
Oh boy, let's see if I can remember. Most of the stuff we had wasn't too great.
Mics: 57s, I think a D112 for kick drums, plus a whole Shure clip-on set that I don't think I ever used; a few cheap MXL LDC and SDCs, I think a couple of CAD LDCs, and I had a pair of some off-brand ribbon mics. Probably some others I'm forgetting.
Not much rack gear, I think I had two lower range tube preamps, an old reverb unit of some kind, and I think a compressor, but I don't remember details.
There was a Behringer board with way too many channels for most of what I did, going into a Delta 10/10, recording to disk. I think I was mostly using FL Studio there, even though most of the bands that came in were in the emo/screamo kind of scene. I did all the mixing in the DAW, only used most of the gear while recording.
@Ricardus For sure! I miss recording sometimes, and wouldn't mind having a home studio at some point (when I have a home). It's a lot of fun
@zacanger Yeah. I love the hell out of audio production. I also do live sound locally.
