Kaelynn Allred - Back To Love
AudioGuru
0 comments
The studio has been busy as ever, and some improvements are coming down the pipeline, but before we get to that, let me say that I had the privilege of working with another wonderful young lady last week. Kaelynn Allred's new song, "Back To Love" is about as cute as they come.  Tying sweet themes from nursery rhymes into a smile-in...

Wow... What a week this has been! Yesterday, we welcomed in a new client, ScramJet to the studio by running a recording marathon with them! We pulled a full 8-hour session and all through yesterday, we managed to get recordings for three whole songs.  By the end of the day, our engineer was ready to collapse. Today, they all came back to...

Daddy's Little Soldier - Finished

Last night, Christie Berube came over for the finishing session on her new song, Daddy's Little Soldier, and to be honest, it was a complete honor to work with her on such a brilliant piece of musical artwork. As an afterthought, I usually like to listen to the final master on as many different sound systems as possible, just to learn from what ...

When new clients come into the studio, I never quite know what to expect.  Tonight, I met a wonderfully talented young lady named Christie Berube, and proceeded to be wowed by a wonderful song she had written, called "Daddy's Little Soldier". While working through this song, I was almost moved to tears again and again while we fle...

Happy 4th of July to everyone! We finally finished mixing and mastering Ear Candy's debut single, Tell Me Why, and quite frankly, we've loved working on it here in the studio.  The finished copy can be heard in our samples section, and Ear Candy has made it freely available to anyone and everyone who would like a copy. Just let them know h...

Okay...  So Advanced Budget Studios had the opportunity last weekend to record a group which came from the Springville's Art City Music Fest, and due to time constraints, we really didn't get a very good tracking session.  We got some of Bethany's vocals, JT's acoustic guitar, Jake's bass, Dan's shredding guitar solo, and a very rough scr...

Reading this chapter with Mormon talking quite frankly to the reader of his book is really quite inspirational.  The later verses of this chapter would be ones to really dig at and lean into every word which is written. The testimony within me of the Book of Mormon is probably the oldest testimony I have.  The only one I can think of wh...

We had the awesome opportunity to work, once again, with Herod The Fink last weekend, and ended our session with some serious improvements to some songs we had already recorded. We totally re-invented the introduction to Desperate Husband's Chorus, which now is sure to give a healthy round of grins to all that hear it.  We also put a pretty ...

So, we've been considering how to best improve the studio in recent weeks, and have decided that our complete lack of guitar amplification needs to be taken care of.  We looked at all sorts of amps and decided that one which could possibly provide the most diverse sounds would be a wise choice.  We've recorded pretty much everything here ...

Ya know...  The explanations of the strategy of war really is interesting to me.  But when I come across verses like these, I simply can't help but get chills.

The main thing that stuck out in this chapter was obviously the destruction of Ammonihah.  As I've stated in a previous post, I find it so interesting that one of the judges of Ammonihah was the one who mentioned that "even if thou shalt declare this city shall be destroyed in one day, we shall not believe it."  It was as if the...

 So, I was listening to, and reading, 1st Nephi chapter 4 in the Book of Mormon this morning, when a verse caught my eye, and my mind dwelt on it for a bit.  It was verse 6.  Verse 6 reads as follows: "And I was led by the Spirit, not knowing beforehand the things which I should do."

So, he liked it so much, and from what I could tell, ...

Okay, okay... I do understand that there is a ton of good that has been brought about by the scientific method, but seriously, people; is that the *only* way to prove something is true? Wow.
