Day 6 - Edit day 3

Today was more of the same really. Got up early, started editing, processing & mixing all day. Weather outside is lovely, but not for us, as we are inside mixing. We are doing days of 12+ hours – so we get a lot of work done.
The good thing of Rich is that he is really a perfectionist. He just zooms all in, and is really getting the minuscule problems out so in the end when all those tracks are summed to just a stereo output master, it sounds great!
Some of the hours I left Rich do his thing, and I got into artwork, label-stuff etc. The label just told us that they will move the release date forward, so we have a new deadline for the master, artwork, bio, pictures etc, etc. Moved it up from February 27 to February 9th!! Now that’s a change… That messed up my whole schedule, so now we need to get going on this…
Getting a band picture will prove to be difficult, as we are just spread out over the globe, and especially, since I will be going home on Feb 1st, it just leaves little space for errors and fixing them. It’s going to be a challenge, but hey! What’s new 😉
Maybe I’ll just have to hire a photographer over here in LA – probably crazy expensive though….
Well, it was a long day of studio work, better get some sleep now.
