SO I SPENT A COUPLE OF HOURS OVER AT “NIGHT TRAIN STUDIOS” — the recording studio that Doug Weinstein and I built together, though nowadays it’s all his because I haven’t done much sound engineering in years. He was rewiring things and I helped, and it mostly underscored how obsolete my sound-engineering skills are. In the new, improved, mostly-digital Night Train Studios, I could only assistant-engineer, realistically. I did solve one sampling-rate-mismatch problem, but that was because — as I noted to him — it was an “obsolete problem,” suited to my obsolete skills. It was fun, though.
