Wello folks (that’s well, hello, ftr).  It’s been a while since we’ve been in communication.  I’ve been busy (as per usual) and things are finally calming down.  That, and sometimes it takes a bit to have enough interesting things to say.

Lost in a Folk Record Hey folks – it’s been a while since I’ve been here to communicate with you all as my audio engineer and producer persona, vt100 – and here I am. Most of this year my posts have been surrounding a folk record I was working on.  And while I’m not here […]

Comparing Preamps and Microphones… again Hey folks, here we are again.  A lot of words about, well, sound.  Recently I acquired some new gear and finally got everything up and running.  Among them was the Audient ASP880, a 1U device providing 8 lovely pre-amps, and a nice converter to boot. The thing is, with new […]

Note:  Soooo you’ll see below that this says i was working on this article as of Feb 13th.  And I was, it’s not like I had a valentines date.  But the reality was, sometimes websites give you trouble.  The theme apparently killed my audio players, and thus, showing you guys audio samples just wasn’t going […]
