Got a call from my wife's work that she had been taken to the ER via Ambulance. The last two weeks she has had chest pains and last weekend, when we were out on a walk, she had sharp pains, got dizzy and had to sit down several times. After I got off the phone- I left my work and zoomed to the ER and sat with her for hours why they did various tests and monitored her for heart problems. All the tests came back normal and so we still don't know what's going on. She has an appointment with a cardiologist tomorrow.

Been arranging a new song called "Mexicali" that was on the back burner for a few months. Intro, first and second verses and choruses recorded and arranged. The basic tracks are mostly all Hellcat VI with a L-R main set of distorted chunky rhythm tracks and a low "bass" track, plus stereo drums (from loops and samples) and a distant piano. Need to come up with a middle break, some possible horn stabs, a few slambar embellishments and Hellcat lead lines and the music is complete. Still working on the lyrics.

Boss DD-7 Pedal

Just picked up a Boss DD-7 Digital Delay pedal to add to the Hellcat VI effects arsenal. Cool little stomp box with lush delays and basic looper functions. Not as extensive as many of the "looper" pedals, but Iw anted this for one of the signal chains for direct recording. Boss gear is always a good investment.
