Blown up MOTU!!!

Well yeah so one of the reasons I have not been around is my Audio Interface (the brain of my studio) has passed on. I was doing a routine clean up of the studio about 3 weeks ago and decided "Hey lets see if my Liquid Mix will work again" So I daisy chained it to my MOTU 192HD via firewire and lo and behold that was the end. Well not really the end, I spent a week trouble shooting and re-installing everything and eventually diagnosed the problem to a blown circuit board.

Yeah so guess what this jackass had to do. I took my hard earned money that I was saving up to buy a new Macbook pro and spent it on a new PreSonus Fire Tube seen below

Got a good discount thanks to Marc Thavenot but still I no closer to my Macbook pro. :(

Well okay enough sadness, time for some music. I had my interview at UTT with Mice and another guy who I can't remember his name although I know he did lighting for Fall Out Boy and Paul McCartney. The interview went well, I had to present a couple pieces as part of my portfolio and an audition piece. We were given a 16 track raw files from the Sessions of "Whats going on?" the Marvin Gaye song. Unfortunately I was given it on a Thursday afternoon and had a gig that night and had my interview on Friday afternoon. So I only got 2-3 hours to mix the track. Check it out here and maybe let me know what you guys think.

Well thats about it just some arbitrary work and Oh I'm actually doing my 1st album with my band CheckList. I think it's coming out pretty awesome. The guys in the band are amazing musicians and I think this album will be some of the more interesting rock related works to come out of Trinidad in a while.
