Wrote and recorded a song in a day? Doesn't sound like procrastination to me...

Ha, well if I told you I've had the song idea for about 10 years, and music for the idea for at least 3 years....would that change your mind?

I just realized I've made things doubly hard on myself...I'm intending to do the REAPER mixing contest this month and that's due in on the 21st...so I'm going to have to work on that during the week AND work on my track as well...

Heheh, so is it forever finished now or you wanna give yourself one more month to obsess over every detail until you start to wonder if you're just making it worse?

Both are hard deadlines, so it's going to be a "good enough" type situation...luckily I don't get that obsessive over a mix (when it's not my track)...I have a system for mixing and when it's done it's DONE...

I also have another four old ones I want to get done, but on another day.
Wow. we ended up getting good takes on 3 of the 4 new songs and a couple of oldies, but I did discover something interesting. If you sing into a valve mic (like my Rode Classic 1) DO NOT use a metal screeen pop shield. My mike started hissing and burbling after about five songs & we finally decided it was down to moisture going THROUGH the pop shield and getting on the capsule. When I got it home I took the valve out & cleaned its pins and the socket, put the mike into its box with silica gel bag to dry it out & the next day all was well. Taking my nylon mesh pop shield next time!

The bad news: I wont receive the stems for overdubs and subsequent mixing for a couple of weeks!
But we were all very pleased with the outcome and cant wait to do more.
FWIW the studio has a decent live room and a huge control room, choice of Pro Tools HD or a 24 track 2" tape machine. Yamaha S10, biggish Adams and a lovely pair of wall-inset Tannoy mains. We sounded great through the mains!
