My Home Recording Studio

From the first idea to its current state, there’s been a lot of thought put into creating my own personal space to explore the creation and production of sound.

goodsoundwaves is the name I’ve affectionately given to my home studio. I don’t really know what I’m doing, but I’m having a fun time doing it.

Local Musicians

Though I have spent a number of years photographing concerts, I am an absolute novice when it comes to creating music. To me, music is an often grand or, conversely, succinct expression of emotion or feeling.

Some Updates

Every so often I come across or find a use for a new piece of hardware or title of software. I’m trying to post about those tools and other bits of fascination related to my home studio. I’ll try to share what I learn about the tools I get to use.

Additionally, updates relating to my BinaryExplosion.studio art may also be included. I don’t really have it in me to operate more than one blog or stream of updates so… audio stuff, video stuff, imaging stuff, photography stuff and other related stuff may be found here. There may even be stuff unrelated to that stuff. You know, other stuff.

Furman M-8×2

On more than one occasion I’ve heard what sounded like a radio broadcast over my headphones in between recordings. It’s pretty amazing what seems capable of traveling through your home electrical wiring. So, aside from the important circuit breaker aspect, that is why I added a power conditioner to my rack. This device handles 15…

TASCAM Series 8p Dyna

In the Fall of 2020 I began using the Series 102i, which has two combo XLR/TRS inputs, as the main audio interface on my main tower computer. I just recently connected it to TASCAM’s Series 8p Dyna; I was able to add 8 more combo XLR/TRS (balanced) inputs to the 102i. The Series 8p Dyna…
