First Song Mastered!

Hey there! I’m excited and relieved to say I have completed mastering my first song! “Sleeping Alone Again”. It will be released in 2-3 weeks. I am now working on editing the video. As soon as that is done I’ll send the song to my digital distribution company and pick the release date. In my case, DistroKid. Tonight I will copyright the sound recording.

A while back I wrote in my blog I would explain to you how I managed to get through the mastering process. So, here goes…I will say I wish I had watched all the tutorials on mixing first. I did have to go back to my mix and fix a few things, a few times. Being that it’s my first time doing this…I gave myself lots of latitude. There was no point in getting discouraged or expecting more from myself…this takes time and experience. I had the time just no experience. I had shared with you previously information about Chris Vandeviver, who is the founder of Why Logic Pro Rules, and just to be clear, I receive nothing for recommending his programs. I could have done an enormous amount of research on line and learn what I did, but where to look and who to trust and to spend all the time…as it is, this project has taken me much longer than I thought. I’m sure the next song will not take as long because I’ve crossed so many bridges and laid a good foundation down. I ended up purchasing two courses from WLPR. One is called “Finish the Mix- Pro” and the other “Mastering Breakthroughs.” Check out his Blog page for very useful tools as well and many videos. Anyway, the “Mastering Breakthroughs” was a life saver and super clear guide. I know there is so much more for me to learn. I have a sense it could be never ending and that’s OK. Stay well!
