Time Waster Supreme...

by Chris Randall
 

If you really have nothing at all to do with your time, here's a live webcam of the control room at Bob Clearmountain's Mixthis studio in Pacific Palisades. If you listen real hard, you can almost hear the engineer yell "NO, FUCKNUT! I said put it on the SMALL FADER! You're never gonna be anything more than a patchbay monkey if you don't pay attention! Go get me some coffee!"


Or at least, that's what I think he said. I was watching for a few minutes, and I saw a Night At The Beach. It's nice to see the curse of the SSL is still alive and kicking in this PT age. Analog Industries Cred Check: free Audio Damage plugin to the first person that can give me screenshots of both "A Night At The Beach" and "A Day In The Jungle." Thanks to Stacy Feron for the link.

You'll know as soon as one of our intrepid readers figures out how to sift through the E-series code to pull out the pics. I'm under the considered opinion that it will be a World Exclusive for Analog Industries, if my Google searching skills (which are, I'll add, not bad at all) are any measure. There are not, as far as I'm able to ascertain, screen captures of the SSL save images anywhere on the Interwebs.

I've seen both on our G series, along with a few other weird things

doesnt the myth go that if you get those screens it's going to be a hit record? That's what it is around here anyways =]

Well, I can attest from personal experience that that is _definitely_ a myth. I've seen those screens hundreds of times (and spent a cumulative total of thousands of dollars worth of studio time waiting for the motherfucking slow-ass computer to do whatever it does while we're experiencing such intense viewing pleasure) and I've never had what would technically be construed as a hit record. Well, that's not entirely true. But the two big sellers I have were mixed on a TAC Scorpion and an API respectively.
