Furitus Ferret Records Web Site

by JValent 28. April 2014 23:58

 

As everyone knows by now, Microsoft no longer supports Window XP. As a result of this, Furitus Ferret Records has made decision not to renew any of our operating systems or supportive software. This decision does not affect any of the music production systems, mixing, and mastering capabilities. However, it does affect our web site and how we conduct business on the internet. At a time in the near future, we will announce that the following services will not be supported

 

  • Service portal
  • Music gallery
  • Web mail
  • Blog
  • Forum

 

This decision is based on the fact that it is not economic friendly to support all services. Our goal is to provide services that get the most bang for the buck. Our web site will no longer host on window servers.

Stay tuned, the switch is coming. Furitus Ferret Records.

Studio Upgrades

Studio Upgrades

 

Our mixing and mastering studio now operates with 64-bit architecture. There is one exception and that exception is Pro-Tools.

 

The 64-bit architecture operating systems, software, and plug-ins aloud for much larger and complex mixes. This reflects more tracks, plug-ins, and quicker work flow.

Power Interruption

Power Interruption

 

On January 27, 2012, a power surge occurred at our postproduction studio. The data retention systems and studio equipment were not affected. All music data, video data graphics data and servers are intact. Our operations were not effected.

 

On the others side, our kitchen appliances and my very expensive coffee maker did not survive.

 

Let’s give P.E.C.O. a round of applause.

Data Retention Backup Solutions at Ferret Records

by JValent 10. October 2011 18:42

One of the main concerns that musicians deal with is the data retention of recorded material. No one wants to lose a hard disk and forever lose that great song that you recorded.

 

 

 

 

Although we here at Ferret Records do not offer storage solutions for musicians, we do have an aggressive data retention policy when we mix and master for clients.

 

Be assure that your project will always be available to you when you need it.

At Ferret Records, our data backup begins with a dual array and an optical retention solution. Our backup uses a primary, a secondary and a final optical solution to assure recorded, mixed, and mastered data is retained.

Posting On The Ferret Records Music Gallery

by JValent 8. November 2010 19:36

Ferret Records Music Gallery.

 

I would like to begin and explain why I have chosen the Music Gallery as a method of submission of material. This method puts you in total control. You can add, refine, and remove anything you post. You can also make your album private.

 

Any music genre can be posted to the Ferret Records Music Gallery. Any format, sample rate, and bit depth is acceptable. (A high resolution MP3 is the best because this format takes advantage of the Silver Light Music Player). All posts can be down loaded to play on any media player.

 

Direct links to your post can be generated and placed on other web sites to lead visitors to your posts. 

While viewing your posts, the following icons are present.

         

 

The first icon is to view information about your post

The second icon is to download the post.

The third icon is to do multiple downloads in a zip file.

The forth icon is to generate a link direct to the post. 

Because the Ferret Records Music Gallery is specifically for music, videos, and band information, less clutter is achieved than what you would find on other sites.

 

You give up no rights when you post your material to the Ferret Records Music Gallery.

You are in full control.

ALTERCATION

by Editor 6. October 2010 19:46

 

Altercation

 

This group, Established in 2004, from San Luis Obispo, CA. is definitely devoted to making their dream come true. Group members Joey Atiya, Kori Harvey, Ralph Lee, and Will Ottone all in their early twenties have produced a well thought out demo. With Will on guitar, Joey on bass, Ralph on guitar and vocals, and Kori on drums produce a mind bending metal sound. The demo clearly shows their devotion to hard work and an intense desire to succeed.

 

You can listen to their demo by going to the following link and select the album ALTERCATION.

Technical aspects of the Ferret Records web site.

 

I would like to take some time and explain the technical aspects of the Ferret Records web site.

The Ferret Records web site runs on our servers. We, Ferret Records, own the servers. They are located in a secure location and are under surveillance 24/7. Fire Walls are also in place. This security is necessary due to contracts that Ferret Records has with various clients. The servers run Windows 2008 Web Server and are mirrored to Windows Vista operating system. (The Windows Vista is virtual operating systems) We also have several video servers. Incremental backups are performed every hour and full backups every day.

 

Ferret Records web domain is split into several sub-domains. The list below is accessible to the public. We do have some sub-domains that are not accessible to the public.
