We've been working hard on laying down tracks for our new CD, which will provisionally be called "Into The Fire". This page will track our progress to date: click here for a list of the gear we've used.
23-25 May 1998
First session - drums/bass/rhythm guitar backing tracks for well over half the CD. Click here for photos from this session.
30-31 May 1998
20-21 June 1998
Lots of vocals, a few percussion tracks. No more aardvark jokes, thank heavens, but a few more photos.
Several of Anne's keyboards parts on odd free evenings
1-2 August 1998
Guitar, rest of the vocals, trumpet, keyboards, flute. We're down to about half a dozen things left to record now. No photos, but.... some audio files!!!!
Remainder of Anne's keyboards and Mike's guitar parts.
First mixdown session: 6 tracks (Absent Friends, Song of The Fremen, Black Powder, Turn Back The Tide, Hunter and Judgement Day) down to CD-R for everyone to go away and listen to.
Mixdown session, from which we sent Dan Bennett a CD-R for comment.
Mixdown session to incorporate Dan's comments.
Mike and Anne burned a couple of final candidate mixes onto CD-R (we started putting version numbers on the CD-R's to keep track!), and everyone got One Last Chance to comment on it. We made a couple of final tweaks. Tim and Annie came up for a weekend, and Mike and Tim did the cover art, and off everything went to the duplicators...
