It would be great to have Boydie master every track on the album, to showcase it to the highest possible standard.

That is the plan  ;D

2 down, so a few to go...

@pompeyjazz  I have just downloaded them and I am getting organized ready to start

I just need to check the following:

Which version of "Take Me To Your Leader" do I need to work on - there is an "unmastered" and an "unmastered correct levels" version  ???

I am assuming it it the "correct levels" one but am a little confused as both are in the ZIP file

@crystalsuzy  Maggi's Living Room also has "mastered" in the title - does this mean it has been mastered?? - Do you want to leave it as it is or do you want to send me an "unmastered" one so that I can master it with the others. I am happy either way but thought it best to check before I get cracking

I am really looking forward to working on all of these great songs  ;D ;D ;D

Hi Boydie, You can do whatever you think will sound best for this album. I thought John wanted a mastered track, and that's the only mastered song I had, so that's what I sent him. Does it sound OK to you?  I'm really not sure what mastering involves, but if you need to, can you remaster this track so that fits with the other songs, or would you want an un-mastered track? I'm fine either way.
Thanks for doing this.
CS  :)

@crystalsuzy If you have a song that is not mastered that you would prefer to have on the album please send me that one

If the one you have sent is the one you want on the album are you able to send me an unmastered version of this one

If the one you have sent is the one you want but you don't have an unmastered version don't panic as we can make sure it fits with the others

Please let me know as soon as you can which option you prefer - it is completely up to you

@Boydie   
Well now, I don't know what track to send if it doesn't have to be a mastered one...a softer one or a more rocking one...hmmm? :P
Does the length matter? Is 5:30 mins too long, if I choose a different song? How do I send you the song?
Thanks, CS

  :-[ :-[ ::) :-[ :-[

I hope not  :o

@crystalsuzy I would suggest checking with @pompeyjazz

When you have the song the easiest way would be to upload the WAV to SoundCloud, make sure that you make the track downloadable in permissions and then send me the link to the song so I can download it

@Boydie, When you upload to SC, don't you loose some of the quality?

@crystalsuzy You do for the streaming but the download will give me the original, high quality, file that you upload

UPDATE

@Boydie is doing an absolutely fantastic job with the mastering

After listening to all the songs in the car for the last few days, this is my SUGGESTED running order. Not cast in stone any way. I do need from everybody your Artist name and Composer name. Here we go then - Any suggestions welcome

1. @Skub                          I'm Feelin Fine (Skub paid the largest bribe)
2. @Wicked Deeds             Music Plays
3. @crystalsuzy                 Maggi's Living Room (or other track)
4. @ScottLevi                    Sleeves Up
5. @pompeyjazz                Take Me To Your Leader
6. @Martinswede               Braver than Brave
7. @Darren1664                Man Reborn
8. @PaulAds                      Busman's Holiday
9. @Paulski                       When This Bottle
10. @adamfarr                  The Most Normal Thing
11. @CaliaMoko                 Makin' Lemonade
12. @Rightly                      Almost A Baby
13. @kevysc                      The Courage To Choose
14. @Viscount Cramer & His Orchestra   Ain't That Enough
15. @Bill Saunders             You Turned My World Around

I'll try and get a private playlist up on SC over the next few days so you can listen in the suggested order.

Cheers All

John

@Boydie  Here's the link to an un-mastered track of Maggie's Living Room:  https://soundcloud.com/crystalsuzy/maggis-living-room-3

Here's the other song that I was thinking I might like to have on the album:  https://soundcloud.com/crystalsuzy/i-dont-fit-in

Which one do you think would best fit this album? The first one is just a fun upbeat song...the 2nd one is more serious???

thanks for your opinion...anyone?  :-\

@crystalsuzy  This should be a call for @pompeyjazz  to make as I am simply doing the mastering so I would suggest contacting him to decide on the song

Please let me know as soon as a decision is made and I will download and master the appropriate track
