San Fransisco, California -October 2004

1340 Mission hosted a jam packed afterparty/open house

for the recording industry folks in town for the 2004 Audio Engineering Society show.

Legendary drummer Zigaboo Modeliste and his band provided a dynamic and funky performance in

Coast Recorder's big old school live room,

a Superbaby contributed some raunchy tones,

and a good time was had by all!

A live-in-real-time 5.1 Surround Sound mix was pumped through

a massive digital pipeline, into the tube powered mastering suites.

I'm surprised the city lights weren't throbbing in time with the music

from all of the vacuum tubes being used that night!

3-D tube sound everywhere you turned, insane...

A prototype Emery Sound mic preamp

saw some action in the control room that night as well.

Thanks for the invitation y'all!
