“Internal time clock?!? I don’t even know what that is man……”

As Pete stated below we’ve hit a slight bump in the road of recording. I’ll explain….


So the first two days in the studio were great. Got three drums tracks done and started on some guitars. The shit was going so good we killed a 30 pack of the “champagne of beers” between three of us (Ok, Jeff had two or three too) in a 9 hour session on the second day. But as fast as the sweet buzz of cheap beer set in so did the evil head of “you just built a new studio and this shit isn't going to be so easy” tapped us on the shoulder and slapped us in the face. Damn that shit hurts. It was all-good until we started tracking electric guitars. Drums? Sounded great. Guitars? Not so much. Every time we hit record on a guitar track we’d get a nasty crackle out of the studio monitors. A fucking bad chord right? Nope. The amp? Nope. A pre-amp? Nope. The flux-capacitor? Nope. Tried everything…..every cable….every everything. Turns out it’s the fucking internal time clock in the sound card of our brand new studio computer. Whatever the fuck that is I don’t know (Dave figured that shit out), but it should be fixed in the next few days and we can get back to work. I'll keep you posted.
