first_imgLearn the most common home studio pitfalls and how you can avoid them so you can get back to making musicNate HertweckGRAMMYs Oct 20, 2017 – 1:43 pm The rule of thumb for building out a recording studio is this: it will cost three times as much and take three times as long as you estimate. In my experience, this is sad but true. Twitter Top 10 Home Recording Studio Mistakes home-studio-slip-ups-10-common-mistakes-and-how-fix-them Email Facebook Home Studio Slip-Ups: 10 Common Mistakes And How To Fix Them But for those looking avoid the pitfalls of setting up and running a functional recording and/or mixing space at home, help is on the way. Music Think Tank recently published their Top 10 Home Studio Mistakes And How To Fix Them.The helpful list focuses on prioritizing purchases, seeking valuable feedback, staying organized, and taking action. It all starts with laying out a game plan.”Think about what goals you have, what are you trying to achieve and figure out what will take you there,” writes Emma Becker. “Make some priorities and use your budget accordingly.”To that end, be sure to stay focused on finishing the job. You will be tempted to begin working just as soon as your DAW is up and running. But don’t forget about the other pieces of the studio puzzle, or you may end up with unhung acoustic panels, messy cable runs and an overall clunky workflow.Becker also makes a great point about reference mixes. Use them!”The fastest way to get closer to your heroes is to compare your work to theirs and get it as close as possible until you form your own taste and opinions.”Listen to those recordings you know best to gain perspective on your new environment. Want to know what the pros are using as references? Check out what GRAMMY winner Rafa Sardina (Lady Gaga, Luis Miguel, Alejandro Sanz) and 11 other top engineers name as their essential reference mixes over on SonicScoop.Another pitfall of getting caught up in the excitement of a home studio is neglecting to stay organized. As an engineer, producer or self-recording artist, file management, as quotidian as it may sound, is of paramount importance.”Spend a bit of time to come up with a folder structure that would work for your type of projects and force yourself to use it,” says Becker, adding that creating a template project folder can save you tons of time, force you to save properly and keep your files consistent.There is much to remember when building and running a home studio, especially considering your true intention is to focus on making music, but with these tips (and a little discipline) you can avoid some of the biggest and most common mistakes.

Twitter goes nuts for huge multicolored squirrel as long as a cat

first_imgOthers weren’t at all keen on the squirrel at all. Although climate change is rapidly destroying the biodiversity of the planet, wiping out adorable species like the Bramble Cay Melomys and pushing others, like the northern white rhino, to the very edge, the Malabar giant squirrel is ranked as species of “least concern”.Hopefully that means we will be seeing a lot more of the tricolored forest wonders in the future. I just learned about these giant Malabar Squirrels that are so colorful! I’ll bet their fellow squirrels think they’re AMAZING! pic.twitter.com/DJ87piDh24— AlesiaXO (@AlesiaXOXOXO) April 3, 2019 Malabar giant squirrels are my new queer icon. pic.twitter.com/6fpElnrZvX— Jacob J.

I thought it was a late April fools photoshopped image pic.twitter.com/k4qdxtFN7n— rowen (@row3n_) April 3, 2019 Of course, that could be because we’ve just past April Fools’ Day and there have been a ton of sneaky hoaxes that caught us off-guard. Share your voice Getty/iqbalsiddiqui Step aside, cute cats that play piano. The internet has a new viral sensation: The Indian giant squirrel.The squirrel is a three-tone behemoth native to the forests of India — and now entirely adored by Twitter. It can grow to around 14 inches in length, which is just a little smaller than a full grown cat and can jump to a height of around 20 feet. It’s got all the necessary features required to become an internet icon.And so, after an amateur wildlife photographer’s snaps caught fire online, the squirrel has done just that.Kaushik Vijayan was trekking through the Indian forest when he spotted the creatures in their technicolor dream coats, posting images to his Instagram account. Although they were originally posted in 2018, media distributor South West News Service posted them to Twitter on Tuesday.Suddenly Viyajan’s snaps of the furry red, blue and gold flyers are everywhere.

The responses on Twitter have largely been unadulterated joy, because it’s simply wonderful such a thing exists in this cruel, cold world.The squirrel isn’t an incredibly new discovery — in fact, they appear in early classification records of mammals by German naturalist Johann Erxeleben from 1777 and several subspecies have been discovered in the past two centuries. Still, they’re a surprise to many and an icon to others.
