Pro Tools 9

After 6 weeks of debugging, reloading and system manipulation I can officially claim that Pro Tools 9 is the best PT yet.
I'm on Win 7 and there were a few bumps but PT 9 is as close to working on HD as it gets without breaking the bank.
If you are on Win 7 with PT 9, check this out.

I'm loving 2011!! I've been super swamped mixing for artists and producers big and small. With the help of my new computer, my work flow has been fast and fluid. I've been delivering master quality mixes and have been changing the quality people expect from engineers in Atlanta and worldwide, one mix at a time.

FWIW, Upgrading your system IMHO can be one of the best things you can do for yourself, look into it. A faster workflow is priceless in today's market, IE the faster you can turn a mix around the better.
My upgrade was to an AMD 6 core 1090T with a Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H motherboard and 8 GB of RAM with an I-Inc 28 inch monitor....... WOW! Fastest Win 7 system around after a few tried and true tweeks. A new SSD is on the way and I'll post about it after I've had time to burn it in.

Another Single

After taking a few months off to recharge the batteries I just found out that I have another single getting played nationally. Six-8 and I recorded Bobby Valentino's new single "Altered Ego" featuring 50 Cent at ZAC's here in Atlanta.

Tony Gaines and I have also been composing music for several IPhone video games, stay Tuned for titles.

N9ne Time!

I recently recorded Sundae on 2 tracks ("Too Many Girls" & "What's Your Psycho") for the new Tech N9ne collabos CD "The Gates Mixed Plate". It's nice working again with my old friend, I'm hoping I get to work on the new Nnutthowze project as I'm one of the original 10 members. It would be a blast making some noise again with Tech and my "Bomb Futuristic Attack Shit" Kung Fu style would rattle a few eardrums worldwide.

I'm proud of what he's done and how he did it... his way. After years of hard work he has the world's attention..... I prey he uses his voice well and returns to his roots of being the most outlandish, creative, B-Boyin', MC (that's got something to say) & unstoppable mouthpiece in the world. He is unlike any other Rapper, and in my top 5 best of all time.

FWIW - I'm no longer teased by other artists, producers, A&R's and Industry people outside of the Midwest when I recite my work and Tech's name is mentioned. Now, I'm actually respected. It's amusing how that happens, you know, watching people catch the Vapors, lol. Biz was right, it is funny.

I told him once that Absolute Power corrupts absolutely, and I watched him spend almost a decade going down a path I could not follow. It's great to hear how he's sober and doing well but until I see his Drivers License I refuse to believe he has one LOL!!
