Give us a shout

TRC Studios is now a private facility, and sessions are by invitation only. But we do sessions every week and accept mixing projects on a selective basis. To see about having us mix your stuff, click here or send an email with a demo or a rough mix to remix@trcstudios.com. We'll get right back to you.

If you are in Nashville or going to be in Nashville, send a note to remix@trcstudios.com and we'll see about getting you in for a session (record, overdub, or mix). We only work with friends, but we are making new friends every week.

Working on a cover of "No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature". My friends at the Center for Medical Interoperability found out and used the info in my "retirement present". They invited me to a staff meeting and surprised me with some very kind words AND a table handmade from walnut by CEO Ed Cantwell. Among other things, the words and music are carved into the top! Wonderful people, changing your world for the better. ... See MoreSee Less

I am guessing that Chris McCollum will appreciate this woodworking. Need to get him and Ed Cantwell together.

Not sure what made me think of him today (maybe it was just looking at the Studer), but the anniversary of Jeep Harned's death is approaching and I thought y'all might like to see his tombstone. Jeep founded MCI, and that's a JH-24 tape machine on his monument. He "borrowed" the circuitry from Ampex, and had the washing machine manufacturer next door make his cabinets. Still, the JH-24 (we had several) was the affordable workhorse for multitrack recording for a couple of decades. We also had an MCI JH-528B console in one of the control rooms for a time, and I liked it a lot. Jeep was a character, larger than life. Big part of the Miami music recording scene. Recording engineers and producers of a certain age will hoist a glass to him next month. ... See MoreSee Less

Jake's finished with the rewiring of CR4A. Note the new rack configuration, new patchbay, and the relocation of the 500-series preamps and compressors to a rolling rack between the engineer and producer. ... See MoreSee Less

The Facebook gnomes have been chiding us for not posting in a couple of weeks. Here's our excuse.

Since we opened in Nashville a year and a half ago, there have been many changes. We've doubled the amount of outboard gear, changed to MTRX monitor control and the main monitor signal chain. Auxillary monitors were changed from NS-10Ms to Focals. And on and on. With every change, we added to the patchbay and racks and/or added additional wiring. It seemed like time to decide the best arrangement of everything (old and new) in the racks, and rewire everything in the control room. For the past two weeks, we've been closed while our man Jake (Jake Saghi) effected the changes we'd agreed upon, including a completely new patchbay. Tireless work, and a great job. Arrangement of equipment and patch points now facilitates a much smoother workflow. Potential for ground loops has been further reduced. Terry Palmer, who Jake helped wire the first time around, has been busy at Garth's place, but he answered a couple of questions for us, and we adhered to his principles these past two weeks. Felt like he was with us in spirit.

Pictures of the racks and patchbay will go up next week, but here is a picture of the Jakester, to whom our hats are off. Everything has been tested and confirmed operational, and we will be open again on Monday.
