Lemme tell you whats been happening ever since the last post…
Drum tracking took a little bit more than we had planned, and Justin spent like 20,000 hours editing drums but it was worth the sacrifice because they sound great!
The rest of the band has been pretty much chilling while Rhandy was tracking. We’ve watched about a million movies and EVERY SINGLE Jackass episode to date, including the movie 😀
Once Drums were ready, it was time for Bass, so Justin experimented with a couple of amps and cabinets to get the right sound, he also added a couple of pedals in there that I wont be naming hehe 😉
There are a couple of videos on YouTube with Ramon recording some drum tracks. Lemme tell you guys, Justin did an amazing job with the bass tone. It sounds powerful and completely relevant to the music.
Today is the second day for Bass, and we are hoping to have it all done by 4pm which is when the Ravens play the Steelers in the playoffs. Justin has made us all official Ravens fans and apparently this is a VERY IMPORTANT game 😀
On a more personal note…
Working with a producer has been a real learning experience. I’ve never had the chance to work with a professional when writing music and he really does bring out the best of each one of us. Some songs have changed, and I admit I have struggled a bit to accept the changes, but at the end of the day its about trusting someone with something you value so much and achieving a greater outcome.
More to come! stay tuned…
