Mastering Tracks for band Mother Slug

Today I stepped into the studio to master a track for band Mother slug.

The guitarist wanted a sample of how our mastering stands up to other mastering services.

Our sound can only be described as “Phat”.
Yes, we use digital software aka T-Racks 3 Standard.
But it sure does the job well!

We are waiting for a reply from the guitarist who mixed the whole album, (which will most likely be released under our label Stillbliss records.) And the album will be called ‘Riddle the sun’. By Mother slug.

We just hope that they will want to use our mastering services.
Until then, fingers crossed, we will be waiting for their positive reply.

Slingsshotmillion2. Yesterday & today.

Today I finished the mixes of Slingshotmillion2’s new songs. One is called “Smile for you”. The other is called “Living road”.

We recorded bass for them yesterday, and today I finished adding the final touches to it. And sent off two mixes each for each song. A full and one BGM.

They are both in the genre of what we like to call “Mixture rock.”

I’m using my new pedal these days at rehearsal. And am finding it to be quite exciting to play with. It’s a Catalin Bread DLS 3. Bascially its called The “Dirty little Secret3” pedal. It is a distortion pedal which mimicks Marshall plexi’s from the 70’s.

It sounds really good when you crank it up. And when you pull back on the volume knob on your guitar, it cleans up nicely. it has more control then a typical amp cranked up at the same volume.

Therefore you feel like you have more control over your tones while playing. it is really quite nice.

Anyways. That is what has been happening at Stillbliss.

Alka Arroyo seems like he’ll be coming over to record some music pretty soon, for his new album. So Stay tuned for more news!!

Henma the drummer, arrives for a drum session. And a new tune from Chris.

Yes! We had a studio session today!

It was real fun. We recorded Drums. We recorded three songs. Of course at our studio we must multi track. But I mean who doesn’t multi track these days?

Yesterday we recorded vocals as you so already know.
And today we just put the drums over the existing vocals and guitar takes.

Henma came around 14:45. We finished around 19:00. Basically like yesterday, but JUST drums. We are recording these drums for our band Slingshotmillion2. As a guide for how our band “should” sound like.

As the drums aren’t the BEST here. We will be recording some drums later on next month or so at another studio. But the guitars will be tracked at our studio here at Stillbliss.

I can’t think of anything else to say, other than that we got alot accomplished. And I am feeling quite satisfied with the results.

I sent the mixes by Mp3 to my band members. Now just to see what they will say about the recording. That’s always the snag..but, so is the life of an engineer.

I hope you liked today’s post!

Come back for more updates on everything blissful, at another time!

See you soon.

Oh wait! I also Mastered Chris Commander/Ekral/Larke’s new numer called “We are the walking dead”.

So keep an eye or more like an ear out for that one on our record label Stillbliss records.

Slingshotmillion2 will be using this label in the future for uploading tracks to the net etc.

Stay tuned!!!

Slingshotmillion2 comes to record at the studios.

We recorded two songs today. Both are from the band Slingshotmillion2. Yes there used to be a Slingshotmillion. Now there is a two on the end of the name.

Hmm Sounds kinda funny. But what the heck!

Today we recorded guitars and vocals, as well as using some rifle shots and explosion samples in Fruity loops. Yes. We still use that program. It works really well, and I know how to use it better than the sequencer in Sonar.

I still use Sonar 8.5, and am on the Windows XP platform. Call me old school, because hey, I AM!

Today turned out good though. The two singers and performers of the group (Which I am in as well) said they had a fun time. We started around 13:00 and finished around 20:00.

They both came by bus and train.

I know it’s hard to come that way, But YES you CAN get to this studio that way, if you want to.

Anyways, I have to record drums tommorow, And this coming Thursday I will probably be recording our bassist.

These songs will all be sent out to almost all online retailers through our Stillbliss records label.

So if you want to help us out financially and support us by buying our tunes online then Thank you in advance.

Of course we still haven’t gottent that far yet. but anything good takes time. So, please be patient, we will be putting out new tunes from our stillbliss factory as well as using other studios to record the drums etc.

Stay tuned for mixture rock!
