Status Check!

So, what's the status, Kenneth?

It occurred to me - anyone who might be reading this, doesn't have any idea. Because I haven't told you. I do apologize for leaving you in the dark, as if my project was an amorphous blob.

Right now I am about half-way through laying the acoustic guitar track for this song I'm currently working on. However, I have a feeling it may go more quickly now than it has been so far. (I hope! I hope!) Once this main track is done, the rest of the instrumental tracks should go more easily, as the framework will already be in place.

I'm a little afraid to tackle the vocals on it, though - I got Auto-Tune, despite my feelings against it, because I thought it would make my life easier. However, I have no clue how to use it. :-) I'm not even sure it will work with my current ProTools version, and I don't want to upgrade, because so far my version has been very stable and I've had no troubles with it as it seems others did with their upgrades. I've heard there's a conflict between my ProTools version and Auto-Tune, or maybe more specifically, with the i-Lok that it requires. So, we'll see about that.

Now, in the GRAND scheme of things...   I currently have 9 songs recorded toward my CD. Those need various degrees of tweaking. I have about...hmmm...8 or so more in the hopper to record. It's pretty ambitious... but I feel strongly about including them all.

My current headphones are very old, all the leather has chipped off the earpads, and since they sit directly on my ears - they hurt. Pain. Real painful hurt. So I made New Headphones a priority, and have just purchased a set of AKG K271 MKII's (used). Crossing fingers they do the trick!

So that's the story. And I'm stickin' to it.
Thanks for stopping by - I appreciate your supportive energies!
