Suddenly You're Gone
© 2012
A selection of songs written and recorded during the last 10 years, now finally put into context, remixed and "mastered".
This is a home production. I'm not an engineer.
The mixing was done on standard loudspeakers and all vocals were recorded in my apartment using a basic microphone. The song sources were gathered from new and old project files made in many different programs and then manually exported, channel by channel, to wave files and imported to Cubase for mixdown and re-arranging where needed.
During approximately a week I spent more or less all my awake hours trying to finalize this project on my limited equipment. After the first upload I returned to the songs a few days later only to find that it didn't sound very good at all, and decided to take the first version off the net and start all over again. I spent another five days trying to make it sound better, wondering when I should stop tweaking things and if my attention to details really made any difference to the outcome - and if so; to the better? This time it made a huge difference so I'm very happy I decided to spend some more time on it, cause suddenly you're gone - out of range for everyone.
