One day in the studio to track six (6) songs of Horn Section parts. Setup at 11:00am and finally walked out with files in hand at 5:00pm. A huge and frankly exhausting day but extremely happy with the results. A reality-check of just how much energy it takes to complete such a production task. All parts were double-tracked and in some cases tripled with alternative parts. EP has been mixed and upon several listens appears to be “I.T.C”… IN THE CAN!!
If you know the Bricasti M7 Reverb processor than I don't need to say another word. The new Lexicon or better?
Samplicity have released a library of Impulse Responses from the M7 and under strict instruction from Bricasti these are absolutely free. I have been experimenting with this library using the TDM version of Trillian Lane's TL Space; now managed by AVID and known as just 'Space' in the AAX version of the same plug-in. Had the pleasure to sit and listen to some of the IR's with a graduate of mine, Cam Trewin from Woodstock studios - my old haunt from the late 90's. The first comment we both made was "the tails. Fantastic reverb tails." Just like the hardware version of the Bricasti M7 at Coloursound Studios and now at RMIT Studio 1; only FREE!

Fairlight are releasing a new version of the worlds first sampler and workstation, once again built right here in AU. The device shaped the sound of 80s pop. To celebrate I dragged out my old Fairlight Voicetracker from 1983, a device I worked on as a consultant with Fairlight when they were in Rushcutters Bay, Sydney. Another world first the Voicetracker is a pitch to midi and controlled-voltage converter allowing my synths to track what I played on the trumpet. Might have to give it a special spot in the rack at ToKwerX new room at Coloursound Studios in 2013. Ahh, the 8 bit memories...
