Mixing of the new JOP CD "Festival" has commenced! We are beginning with the bonus tracks and the ballad today and from there we will set up the mix-template for the meat of the album. This is just a basic working template for the drums, bass and guitars. It's help us to speed up the time needed to put all the remaining instruments, vocals, tricks, trinkets and what-nots in their proper place. Needless to say that with more than 100 tracks on many songs...the process is still quite exhausting. We will have mixes of 3 songs to digest this weekend. In the end, we will take a final "review" day to fine-tweak all the songs in preperation for mastering. We will deliver the CD to AFM the first week of December...barring any crazy act of God that may get in our way. We have focused on every conceivable detail possible while insuring that the mix is raw, alive and full of emotion. We stumbled upon so many great idea's during the last 2 months and most of these songs have taken on a shape that we had not previously imagined....that is simply the magic of having the time and also the support from our record label, AFM. Delivering anything but 110% would be insulting both to ourselves and of course you...our most supportive and enthusiastic fans! More updates next week....stay tuned!
