Gerard Cosloy’s 12XU label out of Austin will reissue Tommy Keene’s hard-to-find 1982 debut LP “Strange Alliance” next month, on both clear and black 150 gram vinyl. The limited edition reissue, shipping May 28th, was remastered by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering Service, and will include two songs not on the original Avenue LP, “Nothing Is Gray” and “Stuck On A Ship.”

The release follows 12XU’s Record Store Day reissue of Tommy’s “Back To Zero Now” b/w “Mr. Roland” 7″ single (12XU 050-1)

Capturing Vinyl to Digital in Pro Tools

Pro Tools® 9.0.5 on my laptop, Mbox 2®, recording at 24-bit / 48 kHz, then upload to iCloud, and with iTunes Match it’s delivered to all my devices.  The best part is, iTunes 10.5 and iOS 5 devices actually support digital music playback at 24-bit / 48 kHz… so I get to listen back to better-than-CD quality for my efforts:
