Apologies for the lack of updates. The summer months were not kind, as we've had a couple deaths in the family.

Also unfortunately my main monitoring headphones broke. The left earpiece broke off just above the connecting joint to the head band. Honestly, I expected better from Shure. The headphones lasted a few months past a year. I ended up replacing them with a pair of AKG K240 Mk II's. I've been wanting a pair of semi-open cans for doing ballpark mixes before finishing up on the monitors, or the occasional late-night mix.

With that outta the way, everything is in pretty good shape. I just ordered a pair of Rode M5's and a SB20 stereo bar so I think I have everything I need to do some ensemble recording. That is an area I very much want to gain experience, and at the same time support the local school and community music programs.

I just need to find a good 15' stand for the job; probably something made by Manfrotto.
