Consulting Sound Engineer

I have been doing a little consulting lately, setting up and training new users on PreSonus Studio Live consoles. Here is a Facebook post from one of my happy clients.

Ken Watson putting his “touch”on our new system. Ken will be a consultant and sound man when available. He currently does an outstanding job as sound engineer for The Mighty Saints of Soul. Thanks to Randy Hignite we were able to obtain his expertise. Digital equipment is like night and day in relation to analog….He knows what he’s doing! Thanks Ken! Oh, if you don’t recognize the drummer, Tim Harper from Red Oak, NC is laying down on the sticks for Ken…

Give us a shout today to schedule your recording session soon.


Blast from the Past

I was going through some old stuff today and found an old Myspace link to some songs I did while I was in Nicodemus. Bad audio quality, but you can get a sense of what we had going on.

PreSonus Eris E8 High-Definition 2-way 8″ Nearfield Studio Monitors

I just ordered a pair of these Eris E8 Monitors  for the studio this week, they are out for delivery on UPS right now. Needless to say, I am a bit excited to get my hands on them.

In the coming days I will post an update here on how good they are. I was initially going to get the Eris 4.5 Monitors because of my budget, but Musician’s Friend put them on the Stupid Deal of the Day at about half off and I could not resist. So, for about $130 more than my budget, I got a $425 pair of Studio monitors.

Stay tuned, I will tell you all about them!

-UPDATE 11/21/2014-

I have set up and calibrated these guys. The sound is awesome, the power is more than ample, the frequency response is very flat. I found parts of mixes I was proud of that made me want to remix immediately. Embarrassing, actually. If you can afford these, or if you can catch them on sale like I did, do.not.hesitate. Buy them!


Progress in the Studio

Man, I have been getting some really good results out of the Studio lately. Maybe I can get client permission to post some samples soon. Things are really shaping up.



Live on the Interwebs, it’s Diamond W Studio, coming to you from Rocky Mount, NC!
