Countdown to mixing

Countdown to mixing

Hello fans of the unbelievably mighty Kurodust. It’s been a little while since I’ve made a post as I’ve been busy with the various duties that our modern lives involve. I’ve also been spending some time establishing ‘The Lateral Expanse’, my project-blog-reviewing site.. feel free to check that out.

So now lets take a look at the official progress of the much anticipated forthcoming Kurodust album ‘Containment Failure’. Vocal tracking (including backup vocals) has been completed and we have handpicked and edited all the favorable takes. It was quite a process in the end but we all certainly had many laughs along the way (mostly from playing-back Ben’s more “entertaining” vocal mistakes made during tracking).


The guys left the house on the final day of vocal tracking at about 2pm. In anticipation of the work to come I went up the street, had a coffee and relaxed for about an hour. With my thoughts all gathered correctly I returned home to begin the task of converting the vocal tracking studio into the mixing studio. About 10 hours later it was starting to come together, but I still had a long way to go.


…there was chaos everywhere…


…I almost fell asleep in a mess of wires and connectors…


By the end of that day most of the stuff was ‘in’, but nothing was properly connected yet. I spent a lot of time during this last week setting everything up ready for the mixing sessions. I’ll be spending some more time this coming week tracking some final guitar parts.. and then on the weekend we’re all off to the beach to drink and have fun.

Confidence is high though, and despite the lengthy wait for ‘Containment Failure’ we are most certainly on the final stretch. Stay tuned for more…
