Looking for some input from you guys

Hey everyone, I know I said we would try and write more, but this last week hasn't been any less of a work load for either Jon or I. I honestly think he may be a zombie by now.

But I'm not a member of the walking dead yet, so I have a question for every one out there. 

I have been asked to help put together a professional studio. I have a gear list that I'm pretty happy with, and am looking to meet with our investors soon. However, I want to know what you guys think are essential studio needs. Hit me with press, dynamics, channel strips, mics, instruments, plugins, really anything you can think of. I want to know what you guys are using, or would like to use if you were able to. Nothing is really off the table.

So far what is really set is a new ProTools HDX system, 32 ins and 3 of the cards for the Mac. 

Hey, if you want to get super carried away, and send us a dream list of your own, go for it. I'll post it, and give some input on it if you would like.

Hopefully that'll fuel some new topics and a few Podcasts for Jon and me. 

Most importantly, thank you for still reading and checking in on us, while we've been racked with work. Sometimes we wish living the dream included a vacation every once in awhile.

Looking forward to hearing from everyone!

We're not hermits, I swear

Hey everyone. Sorry for the delay in writing anything, for over a week. Jon and I have been rather busy, and haven't had a whole lot of time to get anything up here. He's in the middle of a movie shoot, along with having a rather large nationwide touring act coming in this weekend, and I have been a little busy working on engineering five projects, producing four of them, mixing three of those four, and playing guitar and bass on all of them. Oh yeah, then we have normal day jobs on top of that.

So, lesson here is, if you want to get into this business, and make a living off of it, this is just a heads up, as to what you'll be getting yourself into. We love it, and wouldn't have it any other way, but, we sure are busy.

So please, if you guys have any ideas, or need any questions answered ASAP, shoot us an email, find us on twitter @Smart2NoiseBlog and @AnthKosobucki we're usually pretty good at getting on top of those things, the more we are reminded about them.

Keep on living the dream brethren.
