Could I be more prepared? I think not!
recording tips
I realize I could get better quality with stereo pair on the piano and room mics and two extra mics so that I could mic each of the 4 sections of the choir, but I only have 3 mics total as an option because my mixer only has 3 channels for input. Probably should have mentioned that

If you get to do this again in the future, definitely bring a mixer with more inputs :3 It's a great opportunity that not many of us have nowadays, I'm so jelly!

Assuming you're mixing this in with a virtual orchestra, though, the lack of room ambience will probably help you fit it in the mix more nicely. Just like LA Scoring Strings - get a high quality reverb, and it'll make your mix come to life.

I'm actually quite happy. Won 2 remix contests, making good progress on my album project which will hopefully be done very very soon, and finishing work/assignments.

Seriously join the club. My gf of two years just broke up with me saying that she "needed to be single." We've been distance for a few months but I hoped she'd last longer :/

and I literally just ordered her $50 in flowers to arrive on her birthday on the 2nd...

Do you like BEATBOX?

Nobody in my major dressed up as a slutty [insert profession here]. Ergo, my day was quite boring :P

Well I could technically bring my laptop and external interface as well, and send the line out of the field mixer into my audio interface, and then plug in 3 more mics directly into the interface, and have that all go to my computer, but the quality of the preamps on my 150 dollar audio interface is horrible compared to my 1500 dollar field mixer(<3 sound devices) and that means bringing in shitloads of gear too.

But fuck that. This isnt even going to be published so why make all that effort.

Assuming you're mixing this in with a virtual orchestra, though, the lack of room ambience will probably help you fit it in the mix more nicely.

Actually it's meant to just be a piano and choir piece. So no mixing, just mastering and exporting then sending it off to my client. But if I was then I guess it would depend on the room. If its a real reverbery type environment then yeah no ambient mics but a nice damp stage and some overheads would really just add fullness to the sound and still be fine to be mixed with added instruments. Since this isnt meant to be mixed with any other instruments it would be nice to have some ambient mics and capture the nice big hall they will be singing in but oh well, my QL spaces reverb and hall noise will have to do this time.

=P

We don't celebrate Halloween in Russia, but many people still think it's a good reason to have a party. They don't dress into costumes, though

Also, about depression, lately I've been feeling drained. I do my school work and just become extremely tired. It's not a huge amount, but after all the work I don't have any energy. I have no motivation even to pick up my guitar and play (I only hit the studio with my friends on the weekends), the tablet I lent from my friend is starting to gather dust. Been this way a week.

Relationships:
I went on a date with someone who others previous to my meeting them, declared the girl as 'lesbian'.
I don't think that is the case...

Lol-worthy imo.

Sorry to hear about some of the tough luck/love being faced. Usually if something seems off, bail hard.
IE: Fatkid's situation.

Halloween:
Attended / attending some parties, dressed as a hipster for them. I dislike the overthe top aesthetic... but I keep hearing "you look really good" and "what is your costume?" Sad faic. Seriously considering adopting some of the look.

I think we those of us dressing up should post pictures.

/ I'm not a rapist.

Music as a magnet:
It works until they hear the music, or they say they like it even though you know they don't. I find it muddies things.

that's because fun was outlawed many years ago in russia, if it ever existed there.

I dressed up as captain morgan again this year - looks of awe abounded.

Eh, whatever. I went up with my brother and played Gears of War 3 until I got tired. Then today, we're goin' out for sushi and prolly gonna play GOW3 with two of our friends. (I'm a big Gears head so I'm pretty amped.)

I mean, I need the $20 I made to open a bank account, but you know what it is.

But seriously, I usually get really depressed seeing my friends are dating and I'm not, but I just download my computer's weight in progressive house and I easily get cheered up.

This usually does the trick, see?

Skyrim
Just. Ten. Days. I don't care if I sound like a massive nerd, it's my most highly anticipated game since Red Dead Redemption.

Also, I missed classes today because I'm sick. Didn't even get to write music; I've spent the afternoon catching up on work I missed today.

I could've got the game for free (And no, I don't mean by pirating) had the flyer I got been a little more informative... In the end, I'm only getting $25 off... which I'll admit is pretty damn good for trading in 1 5 year old game for a brand spanking new one.

So I've been using that to brag. EBGames was running a promotion where if you traded in 3 games on their "Most Wanted" list, you could get 1 of 6 games that was coming out in the next couple months for free... However, the flyer I had only said 2 of them for $50 off, so I brought in 2 of the games I had that were on the list (Mass Effect 2 and CoD: MW).. But apparently ME2 wasn't worth enough to be eligible (Despite it being on the list)... So I only traded in CoD to get $25 off...

... Still, $25 off a game that isn't even out yet is pretty damn good.

I'm trading back Gears of War 3 (because I'm bored with it). Gears 3 has a guaranteed $30 trade-in value until 11/19, and if you trade it in toward a game on a list (of which Skyrim is one), you get a 30% trade-in bonus.

The way I see it, I'm paying full-price for Skyrim and getting $39 back on my now-regretful purchase of Gears.

What are you planning on doing first when you get the game, BFP? I'll probably admire the scenery for a little bit, then go treasure hunting.

It's gonna be hard.... Im not really good with ostinatos with my right hand , but oh well. Gotta practice like a crazy bitch.


Music is my passion , not my business.
