  The Disappointments have completed their soon to be released 5 song EP.

Oblio Joes are still chugging away on their long player… it will be a gem.

Bevel Studio has reached 24 track capabilities. New 24 track rates are still being discussed.

 Jun 11, 2002
  Currently we are in the middle of 2 great projects. The Oblio Joes have laid down 18 tracks.. Some old, some new, but all quality goods.

The Disappointment are recording a small EP.

Both bands are both losing band members. Tor from Oblio Joes has moved to Alaska, and Dan from the Disappointments has moved to Nevada. So it was urgent to capture their particular tracks, so the projects could move forward.

 Apr 25, 2002
  We just finished up some recent projects, including a pair of bands from the Hamilton area: Horseshoes 'n Handgrenades and Nerds with Instrument.

Also we have some sweet projects coming up. Oblio Joes are planning on recording a follow up to Sintax and Some Antics. Disappointments are also scheduled to record in May.

  Wow. It's been awhile since I updated the Whats New section. Okay here we go. First of all we've been making some serious progress with Saint Rage's full length. All is left is mix down and mastering. That kept us busy for the end of 2001 up till now.

We also had Matt Gore doing some rap in the studio… keepin' the street alive in the studio.

Humpy was the first recording project of the studio.. Way back in Sept. 1998. They never finished their recording, but now Justin L., has decided to pick up the reigns and finish the recording. He recently purchased a XT20 and will be able to transfer the "lost" tapes to his computer. Some vocals need to be done and bass tracks need to be re-done, and soon the legendary Humpy recordings will be available to the public. Yee Haa

  Just got word that the Lazerwolfs just booked 2 days at the end of August for a 4 song recording session. Recordings will feature Bevel's own Jimmy Rolle on lead "belly fiddle".
 Jul 31, 2001
  After a very successful recording with the Oblio Joes, plans for a September appearance are already in the works. Their 9 song long player sounds great, and would qualify as one of the best recording out of Bevel Studio.
 Jul 16, 2001
  We just finished the Disappointments project… barely. During the final overdubs, one of our machines ('ol faithful) died. Luckily, we were able to borrow another ADAT from the Boy's and Girl's club to finish the mix down of the album; which sounded great! A new ADAT has been ordered, and the old one is planned for service. Once all machines have arrived and everything is working properly, we will be upgraded to a 24 track studio.

This weekend is the Oblio Joes!! Excitement is in the air.

 Jun 26, 2001

  Bevel Studio is going to increase the rates by $5. So recording, mixing and mastering is $25/hour starting August 1. This is still way below competitors rates! All bands that we previously talked to will still retain the original quoted rate. Our plans for the future is a third ADAT for 24 track digital recording, and a analog 2 track recorder for masters. Gear, gear… there is always gear to buy.

God helps us all.

  Looks like Hiper Lopro will make their final appearance in the studio. Due to many "life" changes and members moving… Hiper Lopro is calling it quits. They will be recording 2 songs that have never been recorded, and will insert the Pixies song "Umass" on a small fare-well CD EP.
