PS1 20th anniversary album [CANCELLED :(]

Recommended Posts

When exactly are you leaving? This album needs to be done as soon as possible and I don't think I can wait for two months. If all you're waiting for is the solo, maybe you can send the stems right away to Tuberz or someone else, and they can finish the mixing.

I'm leaving on Saturday (and my Friday is already quite packed). I may find an Internet connexion where I go, but I cannot guarantee it to be soon (won't be two months though, I'll try to find a real connexion whenever I can).

Because of some obligations, I'm gonna have to postpone the deadline a bit.

 

New deadline: Friday, July 10th.

Whew, that's good. My work currently left me with not much time and even less creativity, so my progress has been much slower than I thought

I'm on my new location, and my phone allows a limited access to the Internet. So if Tuberz sends me the solo, I can try to mix and upload the track asap.

I'm uploading my track from my freaking phone during my lunch break. This alone deserves a front page post. ;)

 

I'll upload my first track tonight. Maybe I'll do it in an even more spartan way than you, just to outdeserve you :P

 

Nah, I'm pretty confident about that first track not needing it ;)

 

@Ivan: 24bit/44.1kHz wav with 3-6db of headroom for mastering will do, rite?

So I guess this means this is a rare case that when I finally export this, I should turn the Master Bus off? o_O It's gonna sound really difficult being handled by someone else, haha.

I can still make it, barely, but I'm confident. I'm nearly finished. Goddamn work, it eats all of my remaining creativity...

I can make the deadline for both of my tracks. I'm at this point where I'm both happy with the mix and fed up with working on them, so I guess it's a matter of good timing :)

 

I'll do some final critical listening tomorrow and send the wavs your way.

Hakstok, I have tried my best and got my arrange in a great form, but I am still not quite done yet, and I also have tomorrow's SEGA Mixer Drive to organise. I may need another couple of days with the way this is going, but no more than that.

That, and it also didn't help that life got in the way over the past few days. I'm in a position to truck onwards, though.

Yay, first finished track for the album sent (Ridge Racer). Hope I can do the other one today too :D

 

*edit*

Turned out the Suikoden track only needed two minor tweaks and exporting, so that one is also done! Score settled, tracks delivered, Hakstock happy? At least I know I am! :)

I am SOOOO HAPPY with my arrangement right now! I guess all it needs is a good helping of coined-by-DJ-EAR magical glittery glue, and this sucker will be good to go over the next couple of days. I love this feeling so much! :-)

Shit. I thought my week in Berlin would give me enough time and enough inspiration to finish it, but seemingly it didn't. I'm sorry I've let you down. :(
Perhaps I'll release the song on my own a while later.

I wanted to contact every artist to hear their opinion but I may as well post it here:

 

I'm waiting on a few wavs and the artwork. I've been way too busy with stuff and I barely had any time to even think of this album and bother people a bit to get things done sooner. Most of this is my fault because I started the album idea too late, and I should've known I'd get busy near the end of college and during the summer.

 

I've been thinking a bit about it, and as things are standing now, there are two options: 

1. Submit the album next week, get it released as an OCRI somewhere in October/November which is a bit late but still okay for the 20th anniversary in my opinion.

2. Open up the album for all ps1 games, get it done anytime this or next year and then release it as a full OCRA album, but without paying respect to any particular anniversary

 

Like I said, I'd like to hear people's opinions on this. I've told this to Rexy yesterday and she feels that there are gonna be conflicts around popular games if we go with the option no. 2.
