Well, well - Lots have happened in the OmG-hq since the last studio post and we've been hit by the usual OG diary laziness as we aren't any real authors neither novelists even we sometimes try...
After Astia studio drum sessions we've been working like hell here as we built up or own studio "OmG" to our rehearsal house called "the moneyhouse". This is brand new working method for us just to get all the things like schedules etc. just like we want them to be and of course it's much more nice an' easy to be recording and relaxing at our good ol' rehearsal place. It has been a huge job to get all the tech stuff gathered and borrowed for the session but it seems it's been really worth it!
So, it's been a month full of long working hours thru victories and rock bottoms, musical magics, angry musician moments, technical difficulties, brain dead conversations, afternoons & coffeespoons, Pizza and leverlåda by Saarioinen dinners and everything in between!
I was the first one to take the job to do with all the Rhythm geetars and this time it was a BIG task 'cause i had the honour & curse to play all the guitars by myself and engineer Teemu seems to be enjoying his despotic producer status... I used three different amps for this; Mesa/Boogie single rectifier, Marshall JCM 800 2203 & Mesa/Boogie Mark 4. and the tripled rhythm guitar wall of sound seems to be easily the best i've ever done so far - world class stuff for sure!! The spirits are high here in the funny farm!
Thanx for Joni Sven & Harri Pikka for lending some guitar gear - Here i also have to give a big thanx, cheers and respect to Sami Hauru/AK-sound for tech support and gear rent, Arttu Horttanainen for the mixing desk (that once worked...), Eerik Purdon for Ampeg bass gear, Janne Markkanen for Focusrite stuff, Sävelaitta for DBX stuff, Matti Suhonen for the mic, Soitinlaine for fast action, Teppo Gustafsson for fast technical doctoring and Olli Liukkonen & Timo Karvonen for spiritraising and making coffee!
So far our gear have been fucked up and destroyed during the sessions =
The good ol' handmade Finnish Kajaani mixing desk, my beloved Marshall JCM 800 cabinet (again!!!), awesome Neumann CMV563 vintage tube microphone from DDR and still a long way to go! :) It really seems that some heavenly forces of good are really trying to make a stop for our very very évil sessions but we'll be marching towards the victory and never surrender ! :)
More studio happenings updated hopefully "soon" as the diary isn't even quite up-to-date yet....
