Soldering Station

Today I placed an order for a 100′ spool of balanced audio cable and a number of connectors. I want to be able to make cables and adapters in-house rather than purchase them. I’m doing this for 2 main reasons. The first of which being, I can save money. Secondly, I’m tired of trying to make pre-determined cable lengths work when it is clear that I need a more custom length. That being said, I spent a few hours organizing the studio workshop today in preparation for the new cable-making workload. After doing some research I think I have a fairly good understanding about how to assemble the various cables and connectors that I will be using on a regular basis.

After watching a number of video tutorials on how to make audio cables I began to make mental notes on how to set up my work space. I have a plethora of timber in the garage so I decided to use some to create a soldering station. This is the 80% finished product. I still have to install a few metal plates. Alas, it’s not going to win any beauty contests but it’s ultra functional.



Fancy Coffee Skills

Ever since I started interning at Electrical Audio, my coffee making abilities have improved ten-fold. That’s right, I be making all of the delectable and delicious gourmet shits for your caffeine-consumin-asses. This is my take on the Electrical Audio “Signature Coffee.” They call it the “Fluffy Coffee” but I’m not a big fan of the name. It’s far too twink. It should be called “Maple Flavored Diarrhea.” That’s far more accurate. Not because it taste like diarrhea, because you’ll drink it so fast that it gives you diarrhea. Don’t get it confused. It’s delicious.

Studio Session Donuts

Saturday sessions usually begin with donuts. This Saturday was no exception. I stopped by the bakery on the way to work and picked up an assortment of artery clogging goodies.
