Have to put some of my production duties on the back burner for a bit. Massive mixing session!! An album's worth of songs i previously mixed (that secret project) has to be re-done. Executive heads voiced out that its a bit on the heavy side and needs to be commercialized a bit. Dang it. Means i got to pull back on the guitars and up the vocals.
In doing so i realized i got to redo the drum mixes as well, which basically re-setting all the tracks back to zero and starting fresh!
So back to that zone where u have to envision how the track is going to sound before its done and guide it to that direction in the mix.... hence the reason i love my job... i llluuuurrrrrvvveee mixing!
Hell its tiring and at times confusing... but when u get to here the end process versus the beginning stage... Magic mutha *uckas.
ps. big ups to the band for having the patience for the magic to work...
