So it’s the 10th day of this trip and we have two mixes ready of the first two songs. It’s great hearing everything fall in place and it sounds awesome! The way we will work is that we will finish up a mix. Then send it off to the rest of the band, and have them give remarks on it. When all the mixes are done, we will go back to them with fresh ears and the list of remarks and then tweak on it some more until all the remarks are fixed. Then we’ll record the mix to 2-inch analog tape, and do the mastering through analog tape. So the first two tracks are uploading now, and I can’t wait to hear what the rest thinks of it.
