Four songs are done, seven to go. Can't wait to get this album out. But my M-Audio Axiom pro 61 got the blue screen of death today, so the few missing keyboard parts had to be done manually in the midi editor. I hate when gear fail me. Anyway there's no crisis.
I should have spent the day packing for a holiday in Croatia but, I spent the day singing instead. And guess what. The vocals are done. Now there are some small amount of editing on one track and some keyboardparts on the epic instrumental and some media voiceovers to be done. Then off to the final mix. But first I wish myself a great holiday for one week in Croatia.
The second album is in progress. This time with vocals and lyrics. As a big fan of the progressive rock/metal and concept albums, I had to do one. All 13 songs are mostly done, but there are some vocals left and some keyboardparts to play, and then it's ready for the final mix. Can't wait to let you all out there hear the final result.
