TURN ON THE RED LIGHT
In the recording studio, when the red light goes on it is time to record. It is time to do what you came for……it is game time. I had one of those moments this week. I started a 16 week intensive course on Studio Engineering and Pro Tools.
I have been looking for a structured program on learning to record and use Pro Tools and nothing was matching up with what I was looking for. I was not looking to become a 4 year degreed Studio Engineer and I was looking for more than just a few informal lessons. Synchronicity struck last week and now I am on my way. I found a great studio in the Heights called 226 Recordings. The owner is Paul Cox and he is wonderfully brilliant studio engineer, father, lover of recording music, and most of all a great teacher with lots of passion. I have always called into my life my teachers as I needed them….and with no surprise, it happened again.
I have always loved music and as I tell everyone, it is the one place where time stands still. I feel the same way about the recording process. In this course I will learn everything that I wanted and much more. We are learning everything from using Pro Tools to how to make instrument and mic cables.
When I am in class it is the fastest 3 hours of my day. I truly feel this is not only the obvious winner but it is also a start to building a new community of musicians and recording professional as well as it takes me one step closer to combining music, healing, sound, and coaching into a unique direction that has not quite unveiled itself.
I am so blessed to be able to this and have the time, and I also honor myself for always following my dream…..even when it was unpopular with me or others in my life. I now have the support and means to make this happen and I am thrilled. So enough of the blog today, I have homework and I can’t wait to get started……tomorrow is our first day to deal with signal flow and Pro Tools…..turn on the red light.
