It’s Time To Say Thank You

Posted in General, Studio News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2011 by davidruttenberg

I am going to do my level best to say thanks to the “early-risers” who have stepped up so graciously and kindly with regard to helping me launch my NEW CD in an attempt to help fight pediatric cancer through the Margaux’s Miracle Foundation. So without further ado (whatever “ado” means)…Thank you so much to…

Alison Breslav
Shirley James
Corey Weiner
Brandon Scherff
Julie Kriegshaber
Bruno Fortunati
Scott Brockman
Scott Walters

I’m delighted to have received these contributions – but we need to raise soooo much more.

So please, spread the word…tell your friends and family…grab a premium, help me make some great music – and let’s put an end to kids having cancer.

Thank you,

David

The decision is in…QuickTime

After an exhaustive search (exhausting?), I’ve decided to record the studio pre, production, post, and mastering of my upcoming CD using Quicktime. I may incorporate a 2 or 3-camera shoot with additional handhelds and personal recorders for some footage (specials if you will), but I’m thinking that my standard Skype-type Camera – which is mounted atop my 4-screen monitor array – and facing me, the mixing console, and other gear might provide the best vantage point for everyone to see what’s happening.

Any thoughts?

Let me know. Now – on to setting up a broadcast channel – securely and on YouTube!

Peace,

David

I’m starting to assemble the correct software and hardware to capture the creation of the NEW CD. If you have any ideas about the best audio/video capturing software for a Mac Pro and external web cam/audio source – do let me know. The closer it is to FREE, the BETTER.

Too, I’m putting together ideas for grooves, tempos, and feels for the project…so if you’ve any desire to get involved – particularly from a composer-point-of-view, be sure to click on the link above.

Hoping that you’re week is off to a great start, I send you…

Peace,

David

I just launched my new CD Project yesterday. You can be a big part of it by clicking here. Most importantly, I plan on using this blog – yup, this very space – to keep you posted on what’s happening with the project, who is getting involved, how we’re pacing on our goal to help Margaux’s Miracle Foundation, and any other related matters.

And while invitations (via FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email, etc.) continue to be sent out, I am happy to report that 630 people have either viewed and/or responded to the project.

But we’ve a long way to go…so please…if you have only $5 – every bit will help. And if you’ve any questions – drop me a line or comment here.

Thank you,

David
