Just finished a month shooting with these fine gentlemen of sound in sunny/not so sunny London. It’s been quite the month! With the ever wise @davidtozer2733 on the mixer, the ninja like reflexes of @m on 1st boom, me on 2nd boom and the intrepid @samdevos as trainee. No I didn’t get the “we are to cool to look at the camera” memo.
The sound team pay a visit to the “coffee medic.” Who is an actual medic who also happens to makes cracking coffee. Someone please do this in Glasgow 😂
Outside Langside Library in the South Side of Glasgow. Good place to have lunch and a ponder of an afternoon.
He were see Charlie and Tommy attempting to communicate, while Dave keeps a watchful eye on the blue and red horizon.
Massive attack at the Hydro in Glasgow last night. Cracking gig as ever with an absolutely hypnotic light/video show.
Quite a cool moment from upstairs here where the lights went into over drive and all the people recording it on there phones looked light stars in the sky.
#tenyearchallenge Flash back to my Zoom and Boom noob days vs now. At least it was a shit ton lighter 😂 (I’ve lost the wind shield for the rode video mic unfortunately)
Mixing a wee show reel scene for Kirsty Strain today. You might know her voice from The voice controlled lift in Scotland sketch on Burnistoun. 😆
Just spent the last five hours resurrecting my first app (well technically a bunch of applescript stuffed into an app). AutoSave for Logic and Soundtrack Pro. With the intention of this being its final resting version, only to find out the latest version of XCode wont let you build apps for 32 bit anymore.
Guess I’ll be heading to eBay to find an old mac….
Since the app is designed to work with old versions of Logic Pro (Logic Pro X and beyond has autosave built in.) I defiently want it to work on 32bit systems.
Its a bit of a fools errand. I imagine most have upgraded to Logic Pro X, but some studios are very set in there ways. 😆
Mainly its just for my own satisfaction however. The app has been sitting on my website with a note saying “Its free now but I havney had the time to make it offical soz, have a free serial number.” for several years, and it will feel good to get that sorted.
Much to my surprise everything seemed to still be working fine even on the latest macOS.
That AppleScript sure is resilient. Its a shame its seems to be taking a back seat within Apple these days.
Just incase there are any nut cases reading this who are running Logic Pro on 10.7 right now. I uploaded what I have gotten done up to this point.
Downloaded an installer disk image…the Finder froze up every time i opened the disk image. Eventually used the terminal to navigate in and open the installer file. Switching to Linux seems tempting sometimes. 😆
“The algorithm doesn’t understand irony.” - A friend when thinking of liking crap videos on YouTube.
Anyone have the code for the “On this day.” page? Got all my Instagram imported so could make for some nice wee flashbacks.
testing testing 123 (Testing cross posting from micro.blog to twitter)
I’ve unfollowed pretty much everyone on Twitter who doesnt follow me. Let see if this makes twitter usable again.
If you havent seen the sketch that picture is referencing its worth a watch. 😆
