OES Recording Committee

They say that when you retire, you don’t stop working. You just stop getting paid for it.

Such is the case here. A couple of years ago, I was asked by the Worthy Grand Matron if I would do the session recording at Grand Chapter. I said sure why not.

So I am the recording committee chairman. Chairman of a committee of one, me. They also call it taping. But we haven’t used audio tape in many years.

So what is it that I do? I sit in the back of the auditorium next to the sound board and lighting panel. I have just enough room to set up laptop and my interface box.

I run an application called ‘Cubase’, which does the actual recording. Here’s a screen shot.

The interface box takes a patch cord from the sound board and connects to my laptop by USB cable. Here’s a picture.

By Saturday night I will have collected about 30Gb of .WAV files. I then process and organize. Finally converting to MP3 files and writing to a DVD disk for the Grand Secretary.
