Due to the new website I forgot to post the pictures here. But a few weeks ago my friend and photographer Robert de Greef came by to take high quality pictures of the final result. Especially the lighting comes much more alive with his DSLR compared to my Canon Ixus camera.
Since the start or my website I’ve been using Joomla as content management system. Especially the first years I’ve had a lot of fun with the system and it served me well. But due to limited time and also a lack of interest I got stuck at version 1.5. Switching to the most recent version wouldn’t be simple anymore, since I missed out on a lot of major updates. The performance of Joomla has always been a week point, although that might have changed while I was missing out on the latest updates.
Not only the Joomla system was outdated, the design could also use fresh and new inspiration.
It took some time, but I can proudly say: “It is finished!”. It took some time, but here is the final result of my custom build studio console. This week the missing patch cables arrived, so I could hook everything up between my audio interface and the patch panel. Let’s take a look at the final result…
As always with these big projects, you have ten times bigger projects crossing what you though would be you main project and before you know it your last post is over four months old. Well I can tell you that you haven’t missed anything regarding the studio console, since I didn’t had any time for it. Good news is that I did find time to finish it last week and it is now almost finished. I would say 99,9% done! Check out the pictures…
As prove for the Harmonic Mixing Software Test I decided to make a mix based on the key results from the manual analysis. This should reveal any key mistakes when present. Looking at the songs and key the songs are in, there is only one logical song order.
While waiting for some critical parts to arrive there was still one thing I could do. Assemble the D-Size panels, since most of the parts for those did arrive. Since this is going to be a design studio desk, I wanted to make sure I got all the details right. So I bought pre-drilled D-Size panels and Neutrik black connectors. I decided to mount all of them behind the panel, since that looks just a little more neat and you can remove a connector without having to remove the cable from it. And of course you mount them with black bolts… right?
