    Regarding future "Labs Events" and the like, I realise it will be very awkward regarding staff etc. but if at all possible could any of these be at weekends rather than on midweek evenings, which effectively makes it impractical to attend for anyone who works full time and is based outside of the London area? Or just come and set up a satellite office in Nottingham! ;)

    Its a very good point and one I will raise with our events co-ordinator... The last time we did an event on a Sunday we had some A-level students as well which was nice.

    Here's the latest featuring the talents of Louis, Homay, Oliver and Sandy:

    Latest from me - everyone knows about using saturation on drums. What about on instrument tracks? Any point considering it?

    Good timing, Paul. I was just starting to play around with this idea. Thanks!

    To understand the difficulties that face film makers in making moving pictures helps to "right size" us as media composers so it was a pleasure to have a peak into the craft of being a sound recordist here:

    I was looking through my old EXS samples 'tother day and realised I've made a sample library for pretty much every job I've done over the last 20 years, here's a quick tour with an insight into how many of the Spitfire libraries evolved:

    oh.... and have you heard of "Chopping" on a cello?

    Fantastic as always, and very inspiring for an aspiring samplist! I'm actually working on a chopping viola lib, been doing it (and other rhythmic techniques) for years! If you want to see what can be done on a violin check out Casey Driessen, who have taken chopping further than anyone else. And Rushad Eggleston is king of the cello chop!

    I work in Mount Airy, NC aka Mayberry. We all know about chopping around here. Very cool technique!

    I’m building a studio! Check out the first instalment here. Spoiler alert for ep2 - I’ve changed the patchbay layout already lol!

    Fantastic Paul.
    And what a pleasure to be a fly on the wall as you share your thoughts and these wonderful time lapse videos of the actual construction.
    Being a huge fan of tape, I'm glad to see that a Studer will find a home there too.

    Wow, that studio looks like it's going to really nice, and I really like your idea of making it a single "everybody in the same room" concept. I'm half-tempted to knock out some walls and do something similar here.

    One funny thing as I was watching the video - I'll bet anyone from L.A. watched that and thought, "They're sure not in Los Angeles where we have to worry about earthquakes!" Out here, we have to put tons of steel in the footings, tie the footings to the walls with more steel, then have loads of steel rebar up the walls, and then have all the ceiling joists bolted to the steel in the walls. Oh, to live in a place where earthquakes aren't an issue. :grin:
