Another new piece, from Wednesday’s rehearsal:

My world at Jon’s studio:

Very useful tool:

SPL Meter | Andrew Smith
SPL Meter is a professional-grade sound level meter, also known as a decibel or dB meter, for your iPhone or iPod touch. Modeled after a traditional analog SPL meter, we have faithfully reproduced all the characteristics and qualities found in those meters, including the ballistics, ranges, filters, and decay rates. But don’t compare us to a Radio Shack meter, ours is much more accurate! We have also included a small digital LCD display, as shown in the picture, to make this the best SPL meter on the store. And this is something that the old analog meters never had!


Select 40dB to 120dB in 9 ranges. Whatever range is selected, this is the value at the 0dB mark on the meter. Don’t worry if you peg the meter, you won’t bend the needle.

    Hi Ottmar would you mind sharing about how far the mic is from your guitar or hand when you are recoding? Just wondering as I saw a pic of John measuring mic distances. Love the way your guitar sounds and how you capture the beauty of your playing.

    Such a perfect contrast to the gray cloudy skies.

    Already found so many favorite moments where the music builds and changes. Wonderful ending.
