Most studios know enough to test their systems and read up on issues before upgrading the OS on their recording computers, but it’s important to remember that applies to all devices in this post-PC world – even your phone. Such as the tuning app that suddenly displayed everything a half-step sharp last night after the iPhone iOS 5.1 upgrade. And I was wondering why everything seemed a little off during the warm-ups. Luckily, there’s always a backup:
- Another tuning app
- A hardware tuner
Gotta be prepared . . . test and backup. It applies to every digital device.
