As many of you may know when it comes to my studio recordings, I’m essentially a one woman show. I write, record and produce everything myself with the exception of having a studio engineer when I’m recording vocals. It has it’s set of advantages for sure. I get to have full creative control and don’t have to deal with all the ego competition that goes along with having a band or butting heads with a producer over creative differences.
The disadvantage of doing everything myself is that it takes a lot longer. I now finally have all of the vocals recorded, but now I am faced with the daunting task of having to edit vocals and pitch correct everything. It’s hours, upon hours of mind numbing tedious work, and when I close my eyes at night all I see is waveforms. Don’t get me wrong though, I love a challenge, and it’s a great learning experience, and the more I do it the faster and better I get at it.
The good news is that all my hard work is paying off because I do have the vast majority of my rough mixes done for the album. I’ve decided to share a couple of my mixes with you. I’ve heard that it’s a big no-no to post unfinished work on the interwebs, but I’ve never been one to follow the rules so, here’s a couple previews of what I’ve been working on so far. Bare in mind they are ROUGH mixes so all the shit that gets done to them to make them broadcast quality hasn’t been done yet.
