Julian in the Studio – UPDATE II

1. Editing a new video of recording in the studio – to be posted soon
2. Creating the content pages for website – October launch?
3. Deciding if spending the $ on mastering is worth it unless you go with someone who costs $$$$
4. Waiting on final artwork for the CD jacket…
5. Having a guest musician (Tom Snider!) come in and record bass tonight on “These Idols” as the last tracking on the CD
6. Final mixing to be done tomorrow and Thursday – whoopee!
7. Deciding should we go with CD Baby or TuneCore…hmmmm
8. Happy when it’s finally out there and done!

    Tom recorded the bass last night! Mark #5 off the list! Woo hoo!

    I personally wouldn’t master it for the following reasons.
    1. You have an exceptional set of ears-a gifting given to you by God. Sewardship
    2. Any money that comes in could be better invested into Julian’s/Studios future. Like Better mics, mic preamps, vocal room treatment, studio desk. Things that have 10-20 year ROI as opposed to a one shot CD deal.
    3. Lots of bands recorded initially released CD’s with no ‘mastering’ in the past, and it didn’t hamper their futures. If the music is THAT good, it will get out there, even with ‘Nirvana bleach’ type quality.
    4. ROI is almost bil. There isn’t an audience with expectations demanding a world class product…. yet. For that extra 5% polish, above what may be achievable with your own ears, the only people who will truly appreciate it (or even hear any difference) are you & Julian, and for the season you’re in currently, is that worth it?
    Hope that helps???

    I am in total agreement with Fletch regarding additional mastering. 90% of the future audience and also those who are friends and fans of you and Julian, don’t have the ear to even notice the difference. Also, the Holy Spirit is the one who will speak to the hearing of those who listen to this music and lyrics.
