Mixing

It's been a busy couple of months for us. We've played two shows in last month but we've been in the studio almost every day. For the next week we're bouncing back and forth between two studios every day! We are in singing land right now which means Jason and Marc are keeping extra busy. Bewteen singing and listening to mixes their days have been quite full.

For those of you who don't know much about the recording process let me take a minute to talk about mixing. Mixing is one of the most satisfying parts of recording. Basically you spend a year or more writing songs you want to record, then you decide which ones you actually will record. Then you spend a few weeks recording those songs. While you record, you have an idea of what it is going to sound like but it's sometimes hard to know exactly how everything will fit together, until mixing that is. When you are at the mixing stage that means everything is recorded. It's time to sit back and enjoy the work your mixer will be doing. The simplified explanation of what a mixer does is turn up parts and turn down parts until everything is balanced and mixed well enough to hear everything.

As of this morning we still have 12 mixes to listen to, 6 of which aren't fully recorded yet. 3 of the mixes will be sent to us from L.A. and another 3 we'll listen to here in Franklin, TN this week. Then the last 6 we'll hear in the next two weeks. So we are in the home stretch for sure. We'll try and get a few more pictures up here so you can see what we're up to!

ahh the joys of mixing! its fun to do once your good at it! its alot more art than you mentioned, especially back in the days of no computers. everything was done by the magic of the console, efect genorators, and a VERY creative mind. im learning how to effectivelly mix, by volunterring at my church. i do our youth group (sometimes) and the childrens productions(120 or so 3-5th graders, its a pretty big production!) so ya... its great stuff! >>>tyler Johnson or Jesus_freak
