Rehearsed the battle set tonight…getting everything right down to the second! Sounded decent, but felt odd, like I was trying to fight the drums instead of playing them smoothly. I guess we all have those days, right?
Tonight was also my first band rehearsal with a new sampler. Kinda struggled with it, too. It’s always exciting to get new gear, but frustrating at the same time because, well, it’s not the old familiar gear! I’ve still got a few things to level out and sounds to resample, but overall, the new sampler is an awesome machine!
The next few weeks look to be busy for us! The battle in Somerset is Friday. Then we have a few weeks of working on new material before returning to The Attic in Lexington at the end of January. There’s also talks of getting back into Groove Studio in the coming weeks to record “Across the Earth” (my favorite)! A few other surprises are in the works too, so stay tuned.
After a couple of weeks off, we were back at it again tonight! We just finished our first Clear Channel battle set rehearsal. It sounded pretty right-on! The songs are in order, so now it’s getting them machine-tight! Expect a full 20 minutes of sound!!!
In other news, The Seas (and also my artwork) were featured in an article in the Manchester Enterprise this week. I’d like to thank Morgan Bowling for the exposure!
Finally, there’s nothing like brand new gear! I just received a new DW 9000 remote hi hat today. It’s supposed to be a Christmas present, but I’ve already got it out and assembled. It has so many cooler (and easier) features than my old one. I’m so glad I decided to replace the old one instead of trying to fix it! Now, if I could only talk Santa into the new Roland sampler….
