Episode 6 – Christian Salas

In this episode I talk to a very good friend and partner in crime, Christian Salas. He happens to be one of three people that occupies the studio in Signal Hill, CA. The other is former guest, David Joyner. We talk about his travels with his current job as well as horror stories about being in bands and dealing with not so great musicians in the studio and how to handle them. We also discuss failing gear and how to appreciate the use of different non expensive gear. We get pretty candid on our past mistakes but rest assured we have grown since!!

Signal Chain

For this episode both Christian and I were rocking Shure SM7Bs. Check out the chain after that.

Christian: 

Shure SM7B > Fethead > RedNet 4 > RedNet 1 > JDK Audio R24 EQ > CL2000 Compressor > RedNet 1 > Pro Tools via the RedNet PCIe Card

Louie:

Shure SM7B > Fethead > RedNet 4 > RedNet 1 > JDK Audio R24 EQ > CL2000 Compressor > RedNet 1 > Pro Tools via the RedNet PCIe Card

Once again we take the output of Pro Tools and then send it via the RedNet 1 to the Burl B2 Bomber then back into Pro Tools via the RedNet D16. While we were tracking we encountered some pretty strange issues with Pro Tools crashing and eventually his compressor went out. We had to bypass the compress and compress after the fact. Not a bad sound either way. We cover getting your moneys worth from gear that fails.
