Mostly I have been busy doing other things but fear not, I have not dropped my current project. I have been in talks with the band about the progress and where I stand. We have been discussing options for recording guitars and bass along with vocals. Speaking of vocals, I just got a microphone which is in shipment to me as I write this. I have an Audio Technica AT2020 on the way. It has good reviews and for the price of $100, it seemed to be a bang for the buck. It should at least get me started with some recording of vocals and/or guitars.
As far as the drums, I am not sure how things are going to go. I need to wait for the rest of the instruments to be recorded to see how everything sounds together in the mix. We talked about possibly recording the parts on his Roland V-Drums and using EZDrummer to lay in some killer sounds. All just theorizing as of now.
