Life moves in cycles I think, I did the "dole/studio hermit" thing pretty thoroughly 3 years ago. Wasn't anticipating a return tho - the dole people are awful. Bring back the days where you aspiring musos could happily sign on for 20 years without being forced into, you know, jobseeking.
Nomis - nearly finished now... Did a draft mix last night and all is looking good... Tonight I just have to add the odd reverse cymbal whooshy type noise here and there, compress a few dynamically errant noises I noticed in my draft mixdown, finalise my levels, mixdown, 'master', mp3ise, etc... Hopefully have it tomorrow! (Unless I get carried away and decide to mix it in sub groups through analogue mixer/compressors in which case next week!)
