LAST CALL FOR VOTES

Then we tally up the scores.

And I get everything finalized with Tom Fulp

And we work on Mastering

We get together the demo

We get the album art put together

Sadly I don't think we will have this done for Christmas, but that's fine. People will have money after Christmas so posting it after Christmas might be a good idea.

So whats happing with the mastering, did you get someone to do it? If not i think i might have found a guy that will do it for fee. I could have word with him and see if i could haggle him down. Getting a free qoute cant hurt i guess but if someone on NG can do it then why not.

Hmm, I think I've done a fine job mastering my own song, so honestly, I wouldn't like anyone fiddling with it any more.

If you're talking about putting your track on a CD with a whole bunch of others, I'm not sure if mastering is avoidable. Assuming we want the CD to sound polished and well refined.

I was wondering how can you master the songs without having the master tracks, or what kind of filters do you use... Hmm

well, they do have to balance the volume in all the tracks so one isn't maxed out and the next as quiet as possible. That's very annoying to the ear.

I suspect they go through the whole song and bring out parts in certain areas by changing filters, eq, etc. Not just one filter over the whole song. BUT I HAVE NO IDEA LULZ.

Mastering is usually (not always) putting compressors/EQ on the master track. So yeah, most of the time it is just one over the whole song.

Then it's basically what they have now, just the master track for each song and then "fixing" EQ at some points. I wonder how they'll master mine. >:)

What you're thinking of is mixing which is usually done by the artist if they're an electronic musician. I don't know about multi-piece bands, but I know I do the mixing on my stuff.

Winning Charity: Music for Therapy

Winning T-Shirt *T-shirt #2*

UPDATES ON CD:

I am mixing it now, but won't be able to finish until Janurary 13th because I have a venue I'm practicing for on the 11th. The artist bailed, but I just sent lots of PMs to new people. I also sent out PMs for a masterer. Tom right now is far to busy to respond to PMs currently... but hopefully I will be able to get into touch with him.

Thanks for your guys patience! This CD should be great :)

Isn't it handier that every reupload their music as a .wav for better quality for the cd and the mix? Because I uploaded mine as 192kbps and I didn't knew that.

Yes, good idea. I need to PM everybody to send me a .WAV of their song...

Want to help me out with that haha. Right now I have to go to work, but if you could send a PM to everyone in the album to send me a .WAV so I can send it to whoever will master them, that would be great. Of course, mastering will take the longest, but hopefully it won't be all that hard to do.
