Yesterday was filled with music.
First a small band of us lotharios went to Harrisonburg,VA to record a song for Rob Mangus of The Civil Cricket.
We went down to Alive Studios and worked with engineer Robby Meadows (check him out on Myspace). He was terrific. All told, I think we had a pretty successful day down there.
We recorded the song, and Robby was able to get a good mix before we left. Additionally, we got to watch him use the pitch correction software, which I had never seen in action before. Can I just say, wow (there I said it). Amazing how he could isolate individual notes and just bump them to the correct pitch. Robby was a master.
After finishing that, I got to hear my friend Rich play and sing at Skyland Resort waaaay up in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I fiddled along on a few songs, but mostly just got to listen. It is a magical place up there and, as always, a wonderful time.
Didn’t get any pictures at Skyland, but I managed to be a tourist in the recording studio.
