In this week’s FAQ Friday we have a lot of very very wonderful questions starting with “Do you use the SSL at all? It seems that it is simply an expensive book stand?”
Yes! They’re books! – On the left we have Jerry Hammack’s Beatles book– then we have an Ace Frehley signed picture, then we have a signed Jeff Emerick book, and a signed Shelly Peiken book! I am very lucky! David Bowie, Alice Cooper book written by the great Dennis Dunaway, the bass player from Alice Cooper, and also my dear departed friend, Dick Wagner.
Anyway, there ARE books on it.. but it’s not a book shelf! I use the console every day! However, I teach all different ways of working. To me, it is really important that we understand everything. If you follow me, you know that I subscribe just as much to recording and mixing in the box as I do to recording and mixing through a console, as I do to mixing in a hybrid fashion (mixing in the box and through the console.)
I primarily work in a hybrid fashion where I mix inside of Pro Tools and then output through the console and use the dynamics and the EQ’s on the console!
Watch SSL’s, Recording with Tape & Building a Resume (FAQ Friday) to hear the answers to these questions!
