Organize and Review Day

Today was a day i went through the songs completed for the album and made a list of what work still needed to be done. Anything from quick ad libs, picking the right takes, making sure that file's I've bounced have the ideal levels prior sending off for mix, or even making sure that album is going in the direction i want it to.
What most people don't realize is, the session files for each song can have gigabytes upon gigabytes of information to be sorted. This can make the process a little time consuming and tedious. I always try to remind myself the great quote by Willam F. Scolavino. 

"The height of your accomplishments will equal the depth of your convictions." 

I don't know about you, but that rocks me to my core. Basically the harder i work and the deeper i dig the farther and higher i will rise. I love it! Makes me feel like no matter how hard i work it will pay off. 


To give you guys an idea of what my workflow looks like here is a screen shot of JUST SOME of the mic'd drum kit. On this particular song there was at least six takes of just the drums alone. That is not including the guitars, bass, piano, vocals, etc. I have to go in and listen to each take of each instrumental and vocal before sending off for mix. To all my fans out there, now you know why the album is taking so damn long! haha

    Love that quote! I've noticed you reference it often as it does speak volumes.
