I'm in a hurry!

My original idea was to get the symphonic rock EP ready before September. Now my goal is to get it ready by the end of September.

It's summer and I'm not always home recording music. I spend time with my family, friends and my band, Trauma Field. I still try to manage get the songs ready in time.

Here's a list of some of the things I should do:

  1. Make two songs out of thin air / use some old ideas and tweak 'em to two new songs.
  2. Re-record the song ideas
  3. Edit & mix all the four songs
  4. Listen to all the songs in different places with different speaker setups
  5. Ask some semi-pro if the mixes work
  6. Tweak the mixes if there's something wrong until they're 100% ready
  7. Make the album cover art or ask someone to make it
  8. Publish the EP on SoundCloud, BandCamp, ReverbNation, YouTube etc.
  9. Advertise it
Oh my, that's a lot of work!

Logic Pro X bug

Greetings from Ylöjärvi! I'm at my parents place so I can't record anything but I do try to mix my songs a bit.

I ran into a weird bug in Logic Pro X when I opened one of my songs in it. All tracks with fade in/out effects were acting really weird! They repeated little parts of random tracks in random order. When I muted all the tracks except one with a fade effect, it repeated parts of other tracks even if the other tracks were muted!

Thank goodness I found a simple (but annoying) fix for it! I needed to delete the fades and import them again. You can imagine how annoying it was since the song has 50 tracks in it and almost half of them had fades. Other songs haven't had this problem (yet!) so it's not a big deal. Hopefully this will never happen again. 

I guess Logic would like me to use more automations instead of fade effects? Anyways, this shouldn't happen.

Website outlook

I've been working on this site's outlook for a while now. I think it's getting there but I still got some work to do.

I added a few pages about me and my music - you can check them out below the head banner.
