So, if you don't know already, I have been one of two people obnoxiously pushing a kickstarter campaign for the last 3 weeks.
The newly formed duo (Me, and Jesse Crowley) called "Tiny Boats" has been working on their debut album since early March of this year.
Tiny Boats' music could be classified as the energetic...

So, about 4 or 5 years ago, I met a guy named Jesse Crowley, and we played music together. At first we played music that other people wrote, but then Jesse got bored with that, and decided to write Christmas music instead. We recorded a few Christmas albums, and I think they turned out pretty good.
So, Jesse decided that wasn't enough...

So lately, I've been experiencing a lot of clients coming in, giving studio time as a gift, and to be honest, I think that is awesome. As always, ya never know what to expect when a new client comes in, but I've gotta say, anyone who gives the gift of music is probably someone I wouldn't mind hanging around in the studio.
As a way of saying...

Music Speaks For Itself
With everything going on that has to do with running Art City Sound, and making sure everything is taken care of, it's easy to forget what is really important. Of course, my family is, and always will be, #1 in my life, but aside from that, the most important thing in this studio is good music. Having a good time is a definite plus, but...

Utah Valley = Talent!
So, I've had the opportunity for the past few months to work full time with clients from all over Utah Valley. From the sweet harmonies of By Request's soft country swing, to the relentless brutal drive of The Suffering's hardcore sound, the longer I'm in company with musicians of this area, the more I'm convinced that Utah Valley seems to be...

For those of you who ar...

So, I've been surfing around the net today, figuring out how I'm going to work in the new website with the old one and what-not, and while doing so, I found out that apparently, Art City Sound is nothing but a big piece of Volvo heavy machinery. Take a look at this link for proof. (link here, too). While you're at it, take a...

So... Yeah... Holy cow. I started writing this as a Facebook update, and quickly realized ther was too much to say, so, into the blog it goes!
The bottom line is - We are back in business, people!
As of right now, the new studio is close to being finished, but the good news is - we can record. I've got 3 channels wired up, a...

Flight To Green Bay
Okay... This sucks. I just spent the last 10 minutes typing up a nice novel on how today was spent, and I then proceeded to accidentally delete it. How unfortunate. Let's see if I can do it again.
....nope. Sorry... I'm tired, and it's late (it's now 12:30am), and I've got to get up tomorrow morning.

*AMAZING* video - "Everything"
As some of you know, in addition to running this site, I also run a site called ldscompanion.org
Today, I was rummaging through some of the artwork submitted by my users, when I found this piece.
The artwork is well-done, and presents a Biblical message as well as a URL. Well... Not being familiar with the URL, I decided to see wh...

A temple trip to remember
So the other night my ward had the first temple trip of the year. I was unable to hide the fact that I so badly wanted to go! I needed the peaceful easy feeling that only the temple can give, but I was also very worried at teh same time. Because the last temple trip my ward went on the youth did not behave themselves like they should've and they go...

Book Of Mormon Lands
I've been reading a few books and websites lately on the "geography of the Book of Mormon", and see that it is quite a contentious point for many people! A desire to understand the BOM geography was the specific thing that got me into reading the Boook of Mormon for the first time on my own. That isn't to say that my testimony...

The Sweetest Feeling
~I just feel so much in my heart right now. Words truly cannot express how full my heart is. I just finished watching the movie "A Far Off Place". It has always been one of my favorites since I was a little girl. The music in it has always stirred deep emotions within me. It is just gorgeous. It has a melody that tugs at my heart. I ...

Blues Aces Session
Last Friday, we had the awesome opportunity to meet a fairly incredible group of girls. They call themselves The Blue Aces, and after having listened to them strum a few chords, I'd say they've earned their title.
Their manager contacted me after hearing a few samples from Advanced Budget Studios, and was interested in getting a pilot song...

No, my computer didn't fry.

m4a audio conversion in Linux
Today, an audio file was sent to me in an email. This audio was compressed and encoded using the aac codec for compression and wrapped in m4a. In order to use it, I had to convert this file to a wav format. Usually, I receive files in mp3, ogg, or flac file types, and use lame, oggdec, or flac to decode them back to wav. Wit...

New Addition - MXL V77!
So, a little over a week ago, I made a phone call on an offer I simply couldn't refuse... A person online was claiming to be selling a MXL V77 tube microphone brand-new in-the-box for incredibly cheap. This microphone didn't mean much to me at the time, but something intrigued me about it. After 20 minutes or so with google, I kne...

I've only got a bit to write about it, so I'll write as much as I can.
I took off around 10:20 tonight to see what kind of damage I could do out on the streets.
I was cruising on state street in Orem when I found a Dodge Charger R/T who wanted to play. The...

At the beginning of this year, one of the things I wanted to accomplish by next year was to write enough songs to create an album. So far I have 3 songs I reallly like, and one which I think should be destroyed by fire. Not too shabby, considering it's only the beginning of February.
When I was 26, 1 day after I had broken up with my...

Google Hangout Linux Fix
