Maybe something more EA specific then like checking phase when top and bottom mic'ing a rack tom (along with how they act with the rest of the mics). It might have been covered in that Third Circle video but maybe you'd rather make your own.

Just added a highlight reel of the EA 20th Anniversary Bash.

Best moments in the vid: super slow-mo of Shannon Wright headbanging; Chi Party Aunt spotting at 2:07.

The aim for our channel is to create pedagogical studio recording content from our working environment that hasn't been done well already. There are some editing and calibration videos, but they are lacking in context, clarity, and explanation of underlying principles.


Hmm, true. Although you guys have the experience that it'd likely be done right. There's value to the watcher knowing that the EA video will contain correct information. I stay away from a lot of instructional videos that would probably be helpful for me because I've got to sift through a lot of crap to get there, lots of it contradictory.

The audience question is a good one - it'd help clarify what's useful.

Thanks again for the time and effort for these.

These may have been suggested or already done:

- Show different types of tape malfunction. Like, sticky tape, shedding tape, when should you bake a tape? Different kinds of tests you can do to see if a tape needs baking. I was fascinated by the first sticky tape I got, and before it I had no idea what it would look like.

- Basic scope operation. I bet you show checking phase on the scope, but I think most people wouldn't even know how to switch out of XY mode if they walked up to a scope.

- You can show how things are wired in Studio B. I think that would be helpful to anyone who's wiring up their own studio, but it'll also give insight to working in B for visiting engineers.

We made fluffy coffee the other day (though we used an Aeropress for the "espresso"). Came out very tasty!

These are great. I already watched the fluffy coffee and the edit multi-track tape. Very well put together!

Fantastic resource. While quite a bit of this has already been covered in the calibration and cleaning videos, it would be great to have a rundown of how the staff at Electrical prepares for a session (tape calibration, printing tones, setting up the board, etc.) As a very amateur recordist, it would be quite helpful to have a defined list of best practices for day-to-day studio operation. I imagine the fine individuals at EA have it down to an inexact alchemy by this point!

Thanks again for all the effort everyone puts into making this information available and accessible (i.e. free).

Shout out to Fred Armisen walking off stage with me and saying "Hey you're pretty good at this."

Thanks, chief.
