This is a short tribute video to my dad of his Terrasse series paintings. I used one of my songs called "Soaring Through A Dream" from my 2nd CD.

Logic Chat  - 
 
Since there's been talk about AKAI samples. Just wondering if any of you guys are old schooled when Logic Audio and EXS24 was still 32bit mode and still had the AKAI Convert option? I noticed ever since Logic became a 64bit app, the AKAI Convert option has disappeared on EXS24. I used to collect alot of AKAI Sample CDs way back when but cant seem to import them anymore. :-( Has anyone found a bridge to use them still?

My homemade sub mic for the Drum Set I recently made for my studio. just curious if anyone else has ever made one of these and wondering what kind of speakers they used. I know the standard is the 6.5" NS-10 Yamaha speakers.

Paul McCartney famously recorded his bass amp this way during some Beatles sessions in the 60's. I use a 10" speaker for kick drum recording. I just wire it to an Xlr and it simply magnetically attaches to a mic stand in front of the kick. No clamp needed as it's one big strong magnetic clamp anyhow.
Works great for a big thump

Something I added in my Studios drum closet. An older ipad2 that I had so I can wirelessly mirror my main studios DAW screen for drummers to see while in session. Using an app called V Control pro.

All these people giving this Horrendous Hospital 5 stars???? You got to be kidding me. If I could give a negative star I would give them the worst rating possible!!! Go there long enough and you will change your tone. They don't care about your health. Only how much money they can milk out of you. No thanks to them, I have Hashimoto disease now. High Blood Pressure, had a heart attack and live with a stent. They don't want to cure you, just want you on meds for the rest of your life!!! They are all part of the Pharmaceutical, money making BS hypocrisy!!! Piss poor clueless Dr's that wont even listen about natural medicines. Try getting a second opinion from a different hospital and they will treat you like some disposable garbage. I guarantee if these so called Dr's suffered the same conditions you suffer from, they wont take the same meds they prescribe!!! Remember 1 thing, These so called Dr's are just a bunch of legalized Licensed DRUG DEALERS!!! Their job is to act like they care and pretend they don't know anything. Bring up a subject that's not part of Kaisers Program, they say, "Sorry, Not my expertise" Its all BS. They do know but they wont tell you the absolute truth and lie to you to trick you. If you only need antibiotics or a flu shot, then maybe you can get away with this place but for a serious condition, STAY AWAY from here!!!!! My personal 10 year nightmare experience with them. If you are unfortunately stuck with Kaiser and can't get Blue Shield, I seriously reccomend the Hollywood Kaiser Facility more than this West LA one!!!!
