Doin a little studio work on a new track.
No hurry with it.
The Human and Jerry Leal of Pyramid Studio's in Fresno, CA
Main Floor of studio. I actually put down the strat tracks out there. Used a Shure 57 mic up against the amp with headphones. They played track into headphones and I just went with it. Booth in back is where I put down acoustic track. It's also vocal booth. Or sweatin booth. :)
Little arsenal I used in studio today. Yamaha SG 450 that is totally bad ass as far as I am concerned. Same for my Strat. And that little Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amp is a little beast too.
The Human does have a home studio, and the heart of it is simply a Boss BR 1600 digital recorder. If you learn how to use it properly, it can be a beast and get you a great sound. Some of the songs have actually made it to be sold as singles, or even included on a CD. Keep it to Yourself, Mescaline Alley, 18 Wheels, Taliban Man, Dakota and many more have been recorded on it. This video gives you a superficial tour of the studio. It is not an in depth video on how to use the BR 1600. Many of you have never even seen The Human. :) He is the heart and soul of The Human Project. Songwriter and producer and promo man all into one. He does get great musicians to play with him on studio projects. They are all from local area. Many he has used many times, they are all listed on all the CD's.

A quick tour of The Human's home studio. And how he gets it done.
AC Myles and The Human. The Boss BR 1600 is right in front of us and AC is plugged in. I run "the board," to keep it balanced etc. Of course we both wear headphones when we get to this stage. I then mix it down to one track and put it into the mastering tool kit. Then the bad boy is complete.

Here are a few pics from The Human's last studio session, during the recording of "Humanize," 2017. This was his last full blown studio release. It contains 9 original tracks. The "core," of the tracks are mostly live. This gives it a good organic feel. While the Human has written more stuff and released several as singles, there has been no new full blown CD as of yet.
