Finished tracking all the parts, now we have 10 days of down time to listen to the record and prepare for mixing at the end of the month. It's an eye opener to listen to stuff outside of the studio speakers and on the normal car or room stereo speakers you hear other records on. It's nice to be able to get this perspective this time around as previously we've holed up in the studio, tracked and mixed all in one shot and left with a final product ready for mastering. Not so this time, as we get to take notes and make small changes, etc. It will ultimately help make the record that much better. Until then it's lots of long drives up here in the North Shore with blown speakers.
