Some interesting new consoles out there. Rupert Neve has the 5088 Discrete Analogue Mixer. API has developed a pretty attractive board, the 1608 Recording Console, with 16 channels for about $50,000. And Digidesign has introduced a new iteration of the Control 24 controller called the C24.
I want to add a page to this blog which is a collection of all the pictures of high-end recording studios that I have gathered over the years. Sounds simple. But looking for a decent photo gallery plugin for WordPress is harder than it appears. Maybe this one. Or this one. SlideShowPro also looks pretty cool. Zenphoto seems like a good candidate too. But each alternative looks pretty complicated to implement.
I have been spending far too much time thinking about complexity. Perhaps learning to do more with less with some simple living is in order.
