Sent out the emails soliciting advertisers for the upcoming QRD for July. Anybody that might want to advertise or know any advertisers most of the ads – http://silbermedia.com/qrd/advertise.html – prices are from $5-$30 which is super reasonable compared to anywhere.
It’s the end of the fiscal quarter & I spent most of the day doing paperwork associated with that. Trying to get things ready for sending out invoices for distributors & of course paying the artists (the one part of the job worth doing, though I always wish it was more money going out to the artists).
I did practice a bit today for the shows coming up. Wrote a new riff that is pretty definitely an eventual Vlor song doing “drop D” tuning which I really never do, but I thought it would sound a bit better & maybe I’ll move more into alternate tunings after the recordings this August of my current catalog. Because I have been in a bit of a funk lately with having trouble getting new songs to shoot out like they used to.
I was working on recording today & evidently when a song already has around 40 hours of music recorded into it my computer can’t handle it. I found that muting some of the channels allowed me to record. I’m not sure what’s going to happen when time for mixing comes around though. I might need to do sub mixes. It’s nice to know that I’m pushing my hardware to its limit, makes me feel like I’m doing something right. I know some people would say it means I need new hardware, but I always feel like that’s like saying, “No good music was made on a computer before 2005,” which I guess could be argued by some, but I think is a pretty invalid statement.
Sent out a copy of Remora: Mecha for trying to get a grant for performing in France. We’ll see if anything comes of it.
