Well it’s been a few days since tearing things down and heading back to the city. Overall it was a success: I finished 5 tracks, mixed 7 and started 4 collab ideas. I also completed my first guest post for Sonic State and spent a bit of time learning about/playing around with iZotope Ozone’s “matching EQ“, which will come in handy for mastering dubs/demos.
Part of the reason I wanted to do this was to see what it would be like if music were my day job, assuming this becomes a possibility some day. Would I lose interest? Burn out? The answer, based on this experiment, is no. I was able to work a solid 40 hour “work week” and stay focused for pretty much the whole time.
Here are a few pics of the setup (the last couple art courtesy of my wife):
