Mastering complete!

Last Thursday Roger @ SAE Mastering in Phoenix mastered the record. For those that don't know what mastering means (which is most of us), think Yoda. You know he's got badass powers, it's just not clear what those "powers" are. The black art of mastering involves compressing, EQ, volume levels (those are the pedestrian terms) and all sorts of fancy stuff that I won't pretend to understand. Imagine an off-the-rack versus a tailored suit. They both work, but a suit tailored to your body just looks swank. Well, Roger just cut the album to size and made it sound beautiful. Thank you master Yoda tailor.

Kevin lives in Phoenix and sequenced the album with song gaps and fades. He's going back for one last tweak and then Kevin completes the artwork and it's off to the press. And iTunes. But first we ship to MARC7 members. Release date is ... still in flux. How's October 22 sound to everyone?

    "How's October 22 sound to everyone?" Umm...well... ok, I guess, if we have to. Not to complain, mind. Just can't hardly stand it.

    Okay, how's Nov. 6 sound?! For real this time. I'm 90% sure that will be the release date. The master is complete and we're just reeling in the artwork and final details -- but we're heading toward the finish line for sure.
