I marvel at this too Jim. Industrious would be an understatement.

I'm very impressed with your continued progress Rande. The Downbeats are a still regular feature of my morning commute!

Happy to hear you're still enjoying my last effort mate. I listen to it regularly, and never tire of it. Hope you'll also enjoy the surf project.


Cheers,

Update 9/7/16 -

Now going over the final mixes. Have a few tweaks yet to do, but they're relatively minor. Yet I want this to be 100% so will take the time.

Got all the pics from the photoshop guy and they're all fine beyond measure. Really pleased.

I'm meeting with the graphics guy soon and he'll put all the copy into the pics and present a final product to the CD folks.

Should have the final mix in the hands of the mastering engineer by the end of the month. So I'm making progress!



Cheers,

RR

Now doing the edits to the final mixes for the surf project.

In the meantime, here's some fresh pics of some of the sessions I've done recently. You wanted to see my mug, well here they are -

Just came from a session where we did the final edits. Now it will go into mixdown mode.

The engineer will do a few mixes and send them to me to critique for the purpose of making sure the various instruments are balanced and in the proper stereo image.

So, we've reached another milestone!

Final tweaks to the graphics now complete. Looks great. Azz-kick!

Final mixes are a little behind due to the engineer being engaged on a pre-existing commitment. Now back on track. As they say, watch this space!

PostSubject: update 10/9   Sun Oct 09, 2016 7:54 pm

So, the other week I wrote 2 more surf tunes and figured that it was too late to include them on the current project owing to the progress on everything.

Had a chat with my engineer today, and where he's at on this project it turns out it will allow the inclusion of the new tunes. Provided we get them done asap.

So I've booked some studio time this week to cut the guit tracks. The engineer (who is also the bassist) will add his tracks and send the rough mixes off to the drummer. Hopefully his schedule will permit getting in shortly after that. He's a very quick study and this stuff is second nature to him.

This won't delay the overall picture, since we're a little further behind anyway owing to the engineer having a 3-wk live gig that pushed all studio time out. So we're just starting the final mixes, and that will take a while.

So now there's 24 tunes total on this 2 disc set. And the new ones are pretty kewl, if I do say so myself! In fact one of them will feature a new (used) axe I picked up recently - a Danelectro Baritone. Really looking forward to that!

Very Happy



Cheers,

RR

Just came from a way great session where the drummer cut his tracks on the last 2 tunes for this project. I'm not exaggerating when I say it took longer to do the sound/EQ check than it did for him to cut his tracks. He cut 2 tracks on each of the tunes, and it will be difficult to decide which one is best!

In addition the engineer had 7 final mixes for me to critique, and I've been listening to them at home just now. They're all fine beyond measure, and serve to express my vision on this.

He clearly has this well in hand, and I gave him licence to go forward with the rest of the tunes. He'll have them ready for me later this week. So we're making major progress!

Cool



Cheers,

RR

Crossed the next milestone yesterday. Got all the 24 final mixes to critique, and have been performing due diligence on them.

They all sound fantastic and the engineer has done a way great job with the spirit and intent. However, being the OCD individual I am I'll want to make a few small tweaks to them. Nothing much really, but if I don't they will always bother me.

So I'll be going back to the studio early this coming week to make those changes, and then it'll be off to the mastering engineer. And he has assured me that he'll make time for my project.

I expect a pretty quick turn-around on this from him, as it isn't nearly as involved as the Bobby Dancer project.

All to say it should be in the hands of the CD duplication folks and ready by the end of the month....God willing and the creek don't rise!

These are some way great twangy tunes, and of course I'll be making some promo copies available here gratis.

Cool


Cheers,

RR

Crossed the finish line today and the project is now ordered - WHOO-HOO!!

There were some last minute issues with some of the artwork, but my graphics guy straightened it out and I approved all the proofs.

So now it'll be about 2 weeks until I take delivery, barring no problems. So in due course I'll be starting a thread inviting all the brothers and sisters on BoB to get a free copy.

Most excellent news!

I don't drift down to the music topic here, but it sounds like you are well on your way to another incredible piece of art being finished.

Congratulations!

Most excellent indeed...........

Thanks folks.

Minor issue with the disc printing. That should be sorted by Monday. Don't anticipate this will be a hold-up.

Approved the hard copies of the artwork proofs today. So now it's officially in the hands of their production dept.

They estimate a completion date of Thurs 12/15. And with shipping it should reach me probably Wed 12/21 or later due to the holiday slowdown.

Learned that the Surf project has shipped and should take delivery this Friday. I'll vet the results before making this available. Just in time for Xmas!

In the meantime, there's been much going on with the new acoustic and misc electric projects. Too much to go into right now, but wrote a new tune over the weekend that has the potential to be the finest thing I've ever done. Pretty jazzed about the possibilities if I can pull it all together. "If" being the operative word!

Ah, it sounds more like 'when' you pull it together than 'if'. Let it come, and grasp it, throw it down, and record it! You got this!

Just received the Surf project CD's. The graphics are all 100%, so now am going to vet the audio portion of this before posting this for distribution.

While I have complete faith in this duplication company I've also had a couple embarrassing bumps with other projects, so am understandably concerned. So, I'll be back in the morrow with the appropriate updates.

And yes, in due course this will be available on my website for free downloads for those of you who can't play those funny little round things!

I'm appreciative of your confidence Ozzie. But this one will rely on the talents and strengths of many outside my regular sphere of contacts. In fact, it's whole new world to be explored and may well prove to be either my swan song or the complete opposite. Delusions of grandeur or the crowning glory - no in between!
