Last night I finished my contribution to the Suburban Sprawl Holiday Compilation for 2009, which should be out in a week or so, I’m told.

The recording started off pretty strong, as we laid down drums and bass on the same day, and it was sounding pretty nice. Then I discovered the snare drum was clipping when I got home. Not having the time (or desire) to reorganize the recording session, I “solved” the issue by snipping out the bits of the snare wave that were clipping. They were tiny tiny amounts, and it’s almost imperceptible that I did anything. Sort of saved the track too.

Overall, I think it’s a solid tune, but my recording and mixing could’ve been better. At my current sound engineering skill level, I’d probably have needed to start re-recording stuff in order to get the sound I had in my head, but at a certain point I figured, hey, it’s a Christmas song for fun… why should I stress over every last detail? So I called it “done” at around 8pm last night.

It was a fun project, though it was somewhat difficult to come up with something appropriately holiday themed. The song ended up being called “I Want Christmas All Year Long (Not Six Months Only)”, and is sort of a sarcastic statement about wanting Christmas to start earlier in the year than it already does. Check it out at the Suburban Sprawl Holiday Compilation website next week!
