Progress report #4

In Our Dreams We're Flying will have three tracks which are entirely new. I've just recorded the final new track so all tracks for the album now exist. Most tracks now have what I think is a fairly good mix. Some haven't changed much from their already-released mixes, while others are fairly different and may have re-recorded parts.

I'm getting near the point of feeling that all the mixes are good. Well, it's rare that I ever decide a mix is truly good. Problem is, everything sounds different on a different set of speakers or even on a different day. A correction one day becomes a error the next, and sometimes having too much time can be a bad thing. Rule is, mix until it's done, then stop. That second part is surprisingly important. I'm getting near the point of feeling that all the mixes are done.

Next step, because I've decided to do my own mastering again, will be combining the tracks together. Working out the order, making them work together. Getting the levels and the EQ right. Then there's some more artwork to sort out. Then it's done.
