Sine Language – episode 117

This week, Chris Bartlett asks about cloud computing and how that might affect the DAW market into the future,
My man in Hollywood replied with some more info on film track-lay procedures and definitions,
and then Chris Bartlett wrote in again, first to comment on how being a home recording enthusiast is a bit like being a heroin addict, and second to ask about home recording space acoustic treatment.

Geoff Hankerson was concerned about the proximity of the drinks fridge to my studio, as well as being slightly miffed about the dynamic range in DVD audio when watching movies,

Video tour of my new space

As promised, here’s a short video tour (approx 7.5MB, MPEG4) of my new mixing and editing space.
This is also where I record my podcast voice tracks.
However, I have a room on the other side of the house set up as a voice booth for those occasions when I’m working with separate voice talent.
