Yeah. Well one of the wonderful things about technology is that it lets someone like me make a record. It's great.
The worst thing is that there are so many things you can do! Too many! Too many! There are so many toys to play with. If you're not careful you'll start playing just cause you can. And probably start ruining things.
I've been working on all the mixes. And like I said in the last post-one thing to be wary of is the whole "hey it worked on THAT song...why not try it here? And here? And oh yeah over here!" syndrome.
So. Yeah. I kinda did that.
But luckily. I caught the sickness early!!!
I was doing a car check this morning and seemingly 'out of nowhere' 3 songs sounded---wrong. Must be the car. This stereo sucks. Right? Couldn't be ME and my world class mixing skills...nah. Car stereo sucks!
Sadly, it was me. All me.
I fixed it though!
I can officially say that as of today I am DONE mixing.
Next step is mastering. This is mainly like waxing your car after you wash it. If you don't wash it well, the wax won't help. If you don't rub the wax in all the way your car won't shine. That's mastering. It's making the album as a whole all shiny and sparkly and sounding like all the songs belong together.
After that-----well. It's done. Like- all the way done!
