Man I’m tired. 8-12 hours per day for about a week on drum tracks. We had 18 microphones on the drums, including Neumann U87’s on the overheads… Hell of a set up.
After drums it was bass tracks for 2.5 days. The stress level was high because the client was considerably over budget by this point. The takes were tough because the music is so difficult added to the fact that they wanted to finish fast.
Yesterday saw the completion of the bass tracks and now we assemble the double album’s “chunks” into actual pieces. Just doing this is going to take 2-3 days.
I can’t type anymore. Must…sleep.
