Yeah, I know, that’s the title of a song by a swedish 1970’s pop group. Yeah, I sorta like them. Yeah, you all had your giggles now, so just let’s get it over with, will we? 😀 😀 😀

Today, dear Ms. Void, I’m going to give you an update on something we’ve not touched in nearly a year. It’s song #4, “Split Seconds”. Yes, lo and behold! We’re making progress on this long forgotten front.

I’ve just started putting together this song’s final audio project. It has nice drums and Sven’s cool guitar shreddings, but no vocals yet. I’m almost certain, though, that Henny and I recorded the female parts of the vocals sometime in september, but I can’t seem to find them. Yes, sue me! Dang!

Anyway. What we have here is not a polished roughmix — it is not even close. It’s just all the instrumental tracks thrown into the audio project and twiddled with volume/panning a little until nothing is wildly off of anything. No reverb, delay, no automation, no fancy FX, no nothing. I’d like to show you with this song how proper mixing can turn a confusing concoction of instrumental tracks into a coherent whole. Watch this place over the next few days, there’ll be updates!

To come to a conclusion, I’d like to tell you why I came up with this blog entry’s title in the first place. That’s easy: Because this song has it all. Jean-Michel Jarre, Abba, Dimmu Borgir. In this order. Listen for yourself:

Right? Right??? 😉

So I say… thank you for the music, guys, and keep it coming 🙂

Helge

PS: I’d like to greet someone who’s dear to my heart. Winke-winke, Lala 😀
