Much has gone on here this spring.   In the Frugal Studio, completed recording and editing an audio book for a local company earlier in the spring.  More on that when it goes public.

On the live front a whole bunch of shows have come through the local venue.  Kenny Wayne Shepherd,  Ricky Skaggs, Leo Kottke, War, The Tubes, Edwin McCain, Crosby & Nash, Gary Lewis, Judy Collins, The Wailers, Aretha Franklin, and Patti Austin to name just some of them.

I’ve had much more time both mixing and servicing the XL8 and Pro3 systems lately.  Will post a complete review in the future.

Looking forward to more great gigs throughout the summer!

Well, fortunately it hasn’t been too slow a winter for the Frugal Audio Guy.  Completed installation and testing of the Midas Pro3 consoles in the small room at the local venue.  Followed by two New Year’s Eve shows with Eddie Money and a New Year’s Day show with Little Feat.  Still sussing out a gain structure issue when feeding the Crown I-Tech amp rack from the Midas desk via digital.  Adjusting the digital input trim on the Crowns seems to have it licked but we shall see over time.

Shot some video of a great seminar with friend and Buffalo legend Jim Wynne not too long ago.  Hoping to get that edited an online soon.  Part of that process is a storage upgrade to the main computer in the Frugal Studio.  2TB RAID10 array is initializing right now.    Also worked a crew call for repeat client Break The Floor Productions.    Thanks to them for the repeat business and to the easy going crew of Nuvo.

Looks like I have a couple of good events booked for the coming year.  But, I’d love to fill the calendar out with more touring and convention work.  If you need a Frugal hand, please drop me a line.
