Even though the Soul Shack Studio is brand-spanking new, it is getting some upgrades that are all about separation. In order to get good, clean sounds, Jeff is constructing an Amp Room to separate the bass and guitar amps from the main studio, as well as a vocal booth, complete with padded walls and new mic stands.
We’ve already had several groups come and record, and currently Voodoo King is laying down some tracks. Word has it that Jeff has hit the nail on the head (or should I say hit the stick on the cymbal…) when it comes to a great drum sound.
The Studio is up and running, well at least walking. Jeff has recorded Gage and Clay performing O Holy Night and today Hayne Coleman from Hank Cole Band is here recording a great original tune!
Jeff and Mandy are working feverishly to learn all the gizmos in Pro Tools.
The Sheetrock is done, the sanding behind us…today is painting day. Primer is done, Jeff is doing a superb job on the ceiling. Mandy is standing by to do the final wall coat. Discussions are occurring about the carpet and the completion of the drum window. The band is very excited at the progress that had been made this week…there is a light at the end of the tunnel!!
Busy couple of days in “The Shack”. A big thank to Al “bass player” Blanton for taking on the nasty task of insulation. The Lowe’s truck (huge) arrived this morning with sheetrock, and Jeff and birthday boy Ricky are installing. Jeff and Mandy built the frame for the drum-viewing window and it has been painted JGB blue.
