For those of you who have never experienced the 'studio process', it goes something like this:
1) The sound engineer gets you all set up with earphones and a massive microphone placed directly in front of your face.
2) He leaves you in this room completely closed off by huge, thick glass, while he runs the soundboard. The rest of your family is either cheering you on from the other side of the glass -- or they're trying to get school/computer work done, so are nowhere to be found!
3) You do a 'take' of the song recorded all the way through, listen to it -- and usually grimace with how terrible it sounds!
4) You repeat #3 until your part no longer sounds like a bad dream, but actually is sounding like music!
Repeat the above steps for each song, hours on end....and 'Ta-da'! Project complete! Now all you have to do is mix the instrument and vocal tracks, master it, take family pictures, decide the song order, secure copyright for the music, design the CD cover, contact your duplicator, ...and you're done!!
All jesting aside, we're so grateful for WareHouse Studios! While it IS allot of work, we do have lots of fun in the process!
Thanks for all your prayers for this project! Our goal is to have it completed by the first of September! May the Lord be glorified through this music!
