It's done!

Willy came by today and helped me figure out how to hook up all my recording equipment. (THANK YOU, Willy!) He also brought me a power-strip and a bunch of blank CDs. I think the damn thing is put together right.

We did that shit in my living room, because I have everything mounted on a castor-wheeled stereo-table that once held Quinton's Playstation and his VCR-TV. I gave all that crap back to him months ago, so I claim the table as mine now.

All I have to do is wheel that thing into the music room and plug it in. I SHOULD have a very nice home studio. At least I hope so. This has been a lot more work than I planned.

But I think it's a job well done now.


When it comes to tech, it's ALWAYS more work than you planned.

I'm betting the first time you hear a couple of tracks of your own stuff, mixed by your own hands, you'll know it was worth it.

Can't wait to hear a bit of what you've been talking about all these years.

Have a blast!

Anything electronic ALWAYS is more work and takes more time than you plan for.
The last computer I built myself from scratch (using it at this moment) took 2 days (including all the software transfers and re-installations) when from past experience I planned on about 10-12 hours. New tech=new problems (64-bit, SATA & RAID (not the bug spray heh)). Plug & pray. Fooling XP into thinking older printers were something newer to make the drivers work. Manuals from Hell, translated from Japanese by way of ancient Sumerian or something.
But in the end, this thing screams.
Hope your studio turns out as well!

You ever play any of those VHS tapes you made? Just curious
