AN earlier than usual guitar student at the house then I get some work done.
Lots of admin-y kinda shit to catch up on…then we head into Glasgow. I’ve a meeting with musician pals Fraser Speirs and Dave Pringle and Margaret’s got some stuff to post and some makeup to take back tot he shop for a refund.
We’re back home just in time for my 4pm guitar student. We work On a Nirvana song – Smells lIke Teen Spirit – then once we’re done I get on with some prep work on remote mixer control for the upcoming garden show.
The X-Air app for controlling the stage box-style digital mixer has been flaky the last few times we used it and I can’t be arsed with the headache – I consider getting a small hardware mixer but eventually realise that spending money on something sonically inferior to that we already have is a bit nuts. nbBetter if I can fin either a more reliable remote…or a hard-wired way to control the mix.
Eventually I discover Mixing Station – a £5 app that’ll work on both iPhone and iPad and can be hard wired via a lightning to ethernet adaptor if push comes to shove. Let’s see if it’s a viable fix….
