Steel Pennies Recording--Again
Steel Pennies is back working on some recording. This is about our third attempt at trying to get something done. This one, I think is going to work out--it's just going to take time. We are recording the tracks ourselves, which is serving to save us all from having to declare personal bankruptcy. The guys are incredibly picky and will record their sections over and over trying to get the right sound. If we were doing that in a studio, the bills would mount pretty quickly.
Terry and Dave both have equipment to do the recording. Typically, Terry records his tracks at his house. Dave does his stuff at our house. Jerry and I coordinate with Terry and he makes a trek usually to our house and records our sections. It's pretty interesting. After all the tracks are done, we will send it to a professional to do the mixing and mastering.
This last shot is from when we were finishing up our little Christmas song and deciding on the final sound. Someday we'll have a CD done.
