Through gritted teeth I uploaded Naima & Bort today. I hate uploading work that I am not at LEAST 75% pleased with. I’ve just had a complete love/hate relationship with this song since the minute I sat down to write it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy with the way the music itself sounds, but my bloody vocals were driving me insane! I’ve been working on this song for months and every time I’ve sat down and thought “Come on Jenna, today we finish this!” I just … don’t! It’s a relief to lay it to rest for the time being and get my teeth back into Dark Reverie.
I think my problem is that I’m really over-complicating the mixing, thinking too much about how one instrument sounds in one ear, how another instrument isn’t blending quite right, how my vocal is too loud/soft… Maybe I should just spend a day writing and recording with ZERO hangups and THEN focus on the nitty gritty.
Aside from that, Turel showed me to some AWESOME VST addons by DSK! Got a few new instruments under my belt to throw into the mix now ~ so thanks for that Turel!
