Headlines

6th January 2012 

Been mainly working on vocal edits the last couple of days. What's Next needed a lot of work because Matt does a fair bit of singing in that one, so I needed to make all the volumes consistent. We also have gang vocals in a number of songs, so that has required creating a number of tracks and doubling takes. It's time consuming, but it's been fun hearing the results.

5th January 2013 

I got quite a bit of editing done yesterday. I knew this would be a challenge, but even I've been surprised by how many hours I've had to put into it just to get all the basic tracks edited. That's before mixing or anything else. The plan today is to carry on and keep consolidating all the little bits and pieces that have been recorded over the last week or so.

4th January 2013 

We got a lot of backing vocals recorded last night. So my next task is to spend some time getting those all edited into nice cohesive takes. 3 songs are now completely tracked, and they are Dare To Dream, Heaven Waits and Crisis. The most work remains on Prisoner Of Consequence while the other four just have solos to be recorded. I've been surprised at just how long it takes to get all the part together. I'm looking forward to the end result.

3rd January 2013 

Tonight is our regular Thursday meetup and I'm really looking forward to getting some more recording done. I'm also going to attempt to get some more editing done suring the day. It can be hard to grab time looking after my 2 and 4 year old boys, so any chance I get is a blessing!

2nd January 2012 

I didn't get much done on the EP today. Tomorrow night is our regular Thursday meetup and I expect we will get some more done then. In particular, Luke's backing vocals. The mixes I've done of the stuff recorded so far are sounding pretty cool and I'm looking forward to adding some extra layers.

Day 40 - EP recording 

Day 40 - So we've arrived at the final day of the challenge. My aim is to get everything that is recorded edited and mixed. There are quite a few backing vocals that I need to edit today, plus some of Matt's bass from yesterday. As I complete each edit, I plan to do a mixdown of each song in it's current state. I would estimate the EP is 90% done now, which definitely wasn't the case 40 days ago. I will keep the updates going until it's finished, but thanks to everyone who has followed the process of recording these last 40 days. I've really enjoyed keeping a daily tab.

Day 39 - EP recording 

Day 39 - Had a great time cutting bass tracks with Matt this afternoon. He has now finished all his parts. We also got time to record all of Matt's backing vocals. He does quite a few on this EP, and I'm looking forward to mixing them in nicely with the other tracks. All that is left is a few parts from Elias and Luke's backing vocals. Like I mentioned in a previous post, we won't quite make the 40 day challenge, but I'm thrilled with how far we've got during this dedicated time. Happy new year everyone, and may 2013 bring everything you are hoping and praying for.

Day 38 - EP recording 

Day 38 - The 40 day challenge is nearly up and I'm not going to quite get the EP finished I've realised. But that's OK, because I am much much more advanced than I would have been without the challenge. Kristy and I are going camping with the kids on the 12th of January, so my target is to do the remaining work by then. It will be great to have a finished version on my iPod to listen to while we are away. Will let you all know tomorrow where things are at. 

Day 37 - EP recording 

Day 37 - Got a good amount done yesterday on the mix and edit. Should get a good amount done again today. With Matt coming in to finish his bass tomorrow the finish line is in sight. My plan by the end of today is to have all existing tracks fully edited and at a reasonable level. I might even to do another batch of mixdowns for my iPod. I will let you know how it goes.

Day 36 - EP recording 

Day 36 - Hi everyone. Got up nice and early this morning and I'm feeling all the better for it. We are having a day at home today which will give me a good chunk of time to keep working on the project. My main task is to edit the recently recorded vocals into a cohesive track. I tend to record verses on the first run and chorus sections on the second run. That way I'm not gasping for air through the whole take. It doesn't matter so much live because I can skip a word here or there to catch my breath. I can't wait to get stuck in!
