    Congrats!!!!!

    My Mixes on Soundcloud


    With great monitors its easy to hear and fix problems but hard to enhance things that already sound good.

    With hyped monitors, everything sounds good so you don't hear the problems.

    With bad monitors, it seems easy to make absolutely anything sound better because you are really fixing the sound of the monitors rather than the sound of the recording.

    Rob, the first song is awesome. I just bought the cd from cd baby.

    Care to talk about that 4 years of work that went into it?

    wow steve, thanks for supporting!
    appreciate it for sure..


    the time it took, was simply a "that's life" kind of issue....

    if i didn't work a regular job 50 hrs a week,
    maybe i could have knocked the whole thing out in a month!
    LOL

    and i have so many extracurricular activities, i'll have dry spells.
    not from lack of ideas, christ, i can't turn the ideas off!!
    LOL

    to be fair, over the course of 4 years, i've written a lot of stuff..
    including a lot of instrumentals..

    but this is a 'concept' album of sorts,
    revolves around the deaths of both my parents over a 3 year period,
    and asks all those phucked up questions about heaven and the afterlife...

    and this thing just kind of came together very organically,
    and that took time.


    i have to steal time away, to write the tracks...

    a couple of hours here, and afternoon there...

    and i do everything.
    so it takes extra time..

    i always try to walk away from one aspect of the production, to allow time before i come back to it with a new perspective...
    whether it's writing parts,
    performance,
    mixing,
    re-arranging,
    i guess if you added up the entire time i actually spent on it,
    it'd be about 6 months.

    I can certainly relate! If it doesn't result in a paycheck, it's difficult to to justify the time. i have a similar situation, and a record that's close to being done. It's a long story of course :-)

    But I was curious about specifics - how you did the tracking, mixing, guest musicians or a band, to what extent live vs overdubs etc.....

    hey steve, this is real simple to answer..
    it's all me!

    there is one collaboration on the album, with a friend from overseas, he wrote an instrumental synth composition, and i wrote a melody, lyrics and guitar parts for it, it's called "Heaven", and i'll post it here soon.

    i typically do demos, with a groove clip and a click, then work on arrangements as i write the song, and then start writing a drum track using Superior Drummer, then when i have a good drum track down, i start overdubbing everything, usually starting with a rhythm guitar part.
    after the bulk of the music is done, i'll start vocal tracking..
    i tend to do an entire song during one sitting, and i punch in verses at the time, listening back, immediately deciding whether it's a keeper or not, then moving on.

    i use the DAW just like a tape machine, i never comp, and i don't do loops, i just keep recording till i hear what i like.

    solos are usually done last, but not always.

    then when i'm done composing and getting performances, i'll tweak the drum tracks, usually taking stuff out, rarely adding.

    As someone who is making an entire diy (except the drums) record, I have to say you manage to make it hang together very well. It sounds like rock and roll, and that's tough to make happen when it's pieced together to that extent.

    I am looking forward to getting my copy of the cd and getting more familiar with it.

    thanks for the support, steve, i appreciate it...

    and if you like the idea of album oriented rock,
    that's a bit classic rock, a bit progressive modern,
    you'll dig the whole album!
