Having lately developed my studio practice it's time to look at the live side, so with a big gig on the horizon I'll use this Pact to lay the groundwork for Dorian Live.

Even more mixing


Another short session of mixing today, continuing on from yesterday's focus on vocals. This time my eyes (ears?) were on a wider range of items, including the vocals.

I'm generally satisfied with the vocal sound(s) on their own, but issues elsewhere in the mix were stopping the vocals from sitting nicely. So EQing and note register changes were the order of the day early on, followed by a look at the arrangement in a couple of places (including adding a decaying delay to the end of one vocal line to link two sections more smoothly).

Instincts tell me to leave the vocals alone for a bit and focus on something else: both computer voices and saxophone parts need work so I can look at that tomorrow.
