This weekend I spent doing my REC job.
Project 365 of 2017: Days 34–35. Mixing and editing
Last Saturday was very busy. I practised Japanese, then sang. This week I decided to rest a little bit and almost did nothing. Besides my daily Japanese practice, I continued to work on the lost and abandoned Katatonia track which we recorded several months ago with my vocal teacher. Today I started the mixing and editing job. It’s very strange to hear your own voice in the headphones. I don’t like it. I think that it sounds silly and weak but my teacher says that it’s ok. So I’ll take it by the word and try not to abandon all the stuff.
Today I suddenly understood that one of the guitar tracks on my Katatonia cover is a mess. It was desynced and the guitar tuning was also shifted. So I had to rewrite it from the scratch. I’m still not editing my vocals. There’s a lot another job to do. I need to adjust the shaker rhythm and the loudness of tambourine, a mood of the solo guitar and the depth of bass. It’s a hard work especially if you want everything to sound at least listenable. I’m far not a pro, but I do my best to achieve the best sound I can.
Noticed that one of my new flowers showed its small green face over the soil’s surface. I don’t know whether it a mulberry of a pomegranate yet. The other pot is still dead. I have a reason to think that it will remain dead. Almost a month passed and nothing changed. The other flowers are doing good except for pomegranate. It is not growing at all. Thank God it’s not dying. Mulberry feels great as far as I can see. And I’m still undecided about buying the pre-grown plants. What should I choose?
