So ... sitting on the desk where I have all my recording stuff ... are 100 more CDs all put together ...

I declare at this moment that the first pressing is sold out ... long live the second pressing ...

Oh ... and a place in Duluth that I sent a disc/etc to has put me on their mailing list ... I don't know if that is a good sign or not ...

Got em

I just went out to the press ... they are printing the inside of the cover right now ... I grabbed one off and cut it up to make sure that it all sits the way that it should ...

it's not dry so it's covered with my fingerprints ... but ...

it came out just the way I wanted it ...

The CDs arrived this morning ...

I shall handle this in as adult of a way as I am capable of ...

I've been working on the website ... it's still not done ... but I have Paypal info for ordering the new CD there now ... I still have to get the graphic up there ... but I only have Word to code with at the moment ... and my html skills are still lacking ... so there is a picture of the new CD missing ...

FUNFUNFUN ... getting closer all the time

There is a web mockup of the cover of the new CD in the Yahoo Groups photo section ... The blue part on the left is in the CD tray ...

It's printing next week.

Done

The CD is going out to be duplicated today ... the cover is going to press today or tomorrow ... I have the jewel cases on order and they should be here next week ...

man ... I'm shaking ... I should have all the pieces in a week ...
ericcoleman: (Default)
I went into a mixing frenzy last night ... got about 80% of the CD done ... I just need to redo about 3-4 songs where the levels weren't right or something is mixed too hot and is distorting ... and I'm done ... so I should be sending this off to be duped thursday or friday ...

Looks like I will make my deadline ... wow ... now if I had just made any of the previous deadlines ...

Gotta

I gotta thank my friend Dirk Newton ...

He and I wrote songs together 20 some years ago ... and then lost contact for some decades ...

He came in and laid down 6 tracks of lead guitar for me to choose from for Low Self Esteem ... some COOL stuff ...

I just recorded Hides ... THE version ... it's deadly ... and I mean that in a good way ... man ... gonna record a vocal tomorrow ...

I'm going to record a slower version of Bang My Bald Spot now ... with that the guitar parts will be done except for one overdub by my friend Dirk ... almost there ...
ericcoleman: (Default)
I think that all guitar tracks are done ... I'm going to do one more version of Hides to choose from ... and then about half a dozen vocal redos or punch ins ... and Dirk's lead line on at least one song ... I should be able to mix down on sunday ...

Man ... it seems like it's been a long time ... but in the current setup I've only been recording a week or so ...

I still need to take the pictures for the cover ... but that will go fast ... the one thing I know I can do quickly is a cover design ... it's about half done ...

almost there ...

Three songs ... no waiting ...

WYSIWYG
A good version ...

Hides
A killer version ... great guitar playing ... wish I had recorded it (have I said that before ???)

Golden Age Of Silicon
The adrenalized version ... too fast ... but pretty good nevertheless ...

It was a fun night after a weekend of recording ...

Basic tracks are done ... now I have to fix some problems ... and mix and master the thing ...

almost there ...

So ... I'm sitting here at the studio (such as it is) working on a song ... and I'm adding a big background reverb (using that BLOOM setting) running from the guitar's electronics ... and miking the guitar ... so the reverb won't saturate the "real" sound ... just be underpinning added on ...

Problem is ... I had to finally take the reverb out of my headphone mix ... since I kept going

"ooooh ... pretty" ... and forgetting where I was ... and I really do need to add vocals later ...
ericcoleman: (Default)
I just did a quick take on Golden Age of Silicon with the new setup ... first of all ... I am capable of doing the voice and guitar separate ... and the sound is 150% better ... my guitar sound might be a little TOO aggressive now ... I probably should run back the gain just a little ... still ... sounds great ... things are looking good for the next few evenings and the weekend ...
ericcoleman: (Default)
I was talking to the guy who gave me the recording gear yesterday ... I'm getting a hiss ... he asked me how I had things set up ...

I've been doing it wrong ... I get to start over now ... >>insert explicitive here<<

still ... means I can overdub ... so drums. bass and electric 12 string are on the way ... and I might still make it by my deadline ...
