Time passes by, minutes passthrough.
I recorded a new set with lots of vocals made specially for playing at bars/restaurants. It´s not the music I´d choose if I was to play just for myself, it´s slightly off my style but I still enjoyed recording it and I think that´s the point 🙂
I did such set because I´ve heard some west end posh restaurants pay really really good, much better than some clubs and I am really tempted to get that money, because with that money I can invest in myself and make sure in the future I won´t need to play in such places 🙂
Since about 3 months, I made a step forward and started to mix by my ear only, without using the computer. It makes me very motivated because with only a little experience, to sound how I want to sound, I know I still have a lot to work on.
Knowing that recording the same set using the computer I would have made it twice as better is very frustrating but that´s how it is.
It´s all about repetition and practice.
Even though it isn´t perfect, whatever, it´s mixed by me, not by a device 🙂
