Why restaurants became so loud — and how to fight back – Vox:
This experience is by no means unique; it’s become a fixture of dining out in America. ‘What did you say?’ ‘Can you repeat that?’ and ‘It’s so loud in here’ are now phrases as common as ‘Can I take your order?’”
I carry a sound meter. I check. I have earplugs in my pocket (-12 dB flat)
I read a lot of blogs and news sites.
I find lots of interesting articles, things to learn from.
I am dutifully keeping the important text saved in my working journal.
I need to share my plan of study and work to keep me on my toes.
Stay tuned for a discourse on how to abuse Scrivener as a live notebook.
Is Innovation Dying In DAW Development?
Over the years there have been a growing number of Pro Tools users who have felt at some point that Pro Tools has been playing a long game of catch up when it comes to introducing “new” features. When I refer to “new” I mean features that are new to Pro Tools, not innovative new features that haven’t been seen before in other DAWs.
I read a number of blogs as a daily exercise. ProTools Expert is one of them, even though I abandoned ProTools at version 8 (Got Logic Pro X) and never looked back.
I use Studio One (now version 4), Harrison MixBus, and Logic Pro X (with the occasional GarageBand for good measure). I find that I learn *A LOT* about DAWs and recording and mixing when I try to find the similarity between them along with how to do “the same thing”.
I think there’s plenty of innovation left – Cubase, FL Studio, Sonar, LIVE!
It’s all good.

Didn’t want another blog, but it’s the best way forward.
