So it’s been interesting over the past few days. I had my eye procedure which put me out of commision for a week and a bit, making it extremely difficult to really work on anything musically. I had an acoustic guitar, but nothing to really record anything… also didn’t really come up with anything worth recording in the first place.
Last time, I gave a quick update on Mechanical Holocaust and how I need to record new guitars. So what am I doing? Redoing the drums.
I know, makes total sense.
But that’s okay, it’s making it easier to track guitars as I feel there’s a bit more presence in the mix which helps progress the song along. I’m listening to it right now and it sound much more mechanical and the way I had originally intended. I’ve been listening to it without guitars in the mix, but I’ve been playing along with what I’ve got to see if it sounds too busy. The only real way I’ll find out is to actually record and mix and then do some more tweaking to get the right sound out of it.
There’s also a couple of other things in the works right now that I can’t really talk to much about, but once I can I’ll let you know. I’m excited for what’s coming and I hope the wait is worth it. On a side note, I was featured on my friends podcast talking about games and stuff because I was in Toronto at the time and it just seemed like a cool idea. Go and take a listen to us ramble and swear at each other at http://mashinstudios.com/?p=1999
I was also thinking of creating a little video of me working on the guitars and mixing M.H., but I’ll figure out how I’ll do that in time. Would anyone really be interested? It’s nothing really special to be honest…
And with that, I’m going to go back and work on playing some guitar with the current state of the song to see where I can get from there.
Until next update…
