2 and 1/2 recording sessions done… Countless hours of post-production… 2 mixing sessions done… And half left to go. I expect “Five Years” to be completely mixed, mastered and ready for release by the end of the month.
…is tomorrow. Just a quick 4 hours to clean a few things up, and then on Saturday is the (hopefully) last mixing session.
We’re getting close here…
Well post-production has been moving along well and I am very much looking forward to my first mixing session tomorrow with Dave Darlington. We’re aiming to get about 5/8 of the tracks done, because some things have to be mixed before they can be finished in post.
Hopefully I’ll have something final to post soon.
In other news, I have a very short session scheduled in the studio in late January to fix one item, and then I should be ready to send everything else in for a final mix. So that looks like an early February completion date. Hoping to stick by that.
So previously I set myself a lofty goal of having everything done by December 31st. Still a lofty goal? Perhaps not…
I recently got in touch with a mixing engineer which has excited and sped up the process of post-production. In addition, a few gigs have encouraged me to practice more and thus get some horn parts down sooner than I had expected.
So, we’ve got two months until my goal. I’m gonna shoot for post to be done by the end of November, and mixing done by the end of December.
Mastering we’ll leave until January.
So I recently finished my second of two recording sessions. Things went well, and I’m currently in the process of religious take-listening. I’m trying to be sure which takes I want to keep, what I want to do in mixing, as well as think of ideas for post-production.
To be honest I’ve kind of slacked on the post work, but I hope to get back on the wagon this week. The goal I’ve set for myself is to have everything in post finished, as well as the final product mixed and mastered by December 31st. A lofty goal? We’ll see.
