I would like to get this CD I made mastered, because right now, it is a little bit rough around the edges, and that is to say the least. I would hate to try to release it like it is and I really want to go to a mastering studio in order to work on it more, and get it to what it should sound like, based on the picture I have in my head. Picture is a weird word to use when you are talking about music, but I don’t know a better word to describe what I am talking about, so I am just going to roll with it for now.
I have some other ideas for CDs to make in the near future. I have a hard time sticking with one project before I move on to the next. But this time, I really want to make sure that I see this project through to completion, as opposed to moving onto something else before it is done. That seems like a good idea, because I think it will build my confidence if I am able to see the finished project and really enjoy what I hear.
I want to layer a few of the guitar tracks, because I think that would really help to make the album feel a bit more full-bodied. I guess that is a good way to describe it. I don’t have any formal musical training, so often times, I find myself at a loss for the right words to use when I am describing what I am trying to do. But I know what I want to have the finished project sound like, and I use that as a guide for my decisions with regards to changing things towards making a mastered version of all of the tracks.Continue reading →
