All instrument tracks and musician performances are complete... Maybe. Voice tracks are being worked on and recorded at every opportunity and so far sounding the way they should. Unlike most music nowadays that can involve a single person surrounded by loops and poop, there are several human beings performing with real instruments on very demanding arrangements.
This, of course, makes everything overall sound personal, intimate and real. Hopefully things can get wrapped up in the next little while with the voice work as that will leave the mixing and mastering which can be a smooth sail or a rocky road depending on what direction and sound best suits the entire project.
Good things come to those that wait. Great things come to those that wait longer.
Well... the summer has neared it's end and we are still a bit further behind than originally hoped for. At this stage, most the voice tracks are to be recorded which will lead to final mixing and mastering. Although you sometimes want to be working in the studio more, it just doesn't seem possible with other things in life that require attention.
It can be frustrating when you get so near completing a project that has been in the works for a while. But, like they say, good things come to those that wait. And Lord knows, I have waited. I am eager to write and work on more music but have been holding off in order to focus on the project at hand. That might be best for now. Or not.
Happy to report that major obstacles have been overcome in the recording process and we are now even closer to the album being completed. All of the music tracks are almost complete. The last instrument parts, mainly guitars, have been recorded.
Next, we will be moving to the voice tracks, mixing and finally mastering. Things are sounding great overall. We are building a new vocal room in the studio which is almost ready for action and should provide another source for delivering a perfect sound to the many voice and harmony tracks.
Soon, we should be able to post one of the tracks from the album right here for you to preview and purchase that will give you a good example of what's to come and hopefully grab your attention and keep you on the edge of your seat. Read on and stay tuned...
