Notice the empty space in the rack. Today’s planned (and highly anticipated) recording session was thwarted by the malfunction of a much adored LA-610. (The 610 is the cool-looking tube pre-amp with the big black knobs. We had two, now we have one.) It sounds beautiful when it works. Today…no.
We’re exchanging the unit for a new one. Now we’ve got to wait two weeks for the next chance to try again.
Instead of recording, Dustin and I have spent the day (what was left after our fuse shopping trip), educating ourselves on the ins and outs of operating the music creation program Reason.
