Did you listen to the radio show last night? Tom Zartler (the mastering engineer) was texting me mid-show and said I should drink more coffee next time. LMAO

The first collection has been completed. Have a listen to them if ya like. Since we had such a vast range of genre, I separated songs of similar genres so that both discs would bare similarities to each other. I didn't get crazy with the mastering process. I just did some spatial and a few different ways of eqing using static and dynamic eqing, various types of compression and compressors as well as limiting. Some songs like Lenny's, Robin's and Nicola's needed very little where others I spent some more time on them to make them a little more playful to the ears. Have a listen to your song if it is in the first collection. If for some reason you disagree with my decisions when you listen back to your song let me know. I know this is short notice, but I need to know asap since we go live tomorrow.
Overall, i am very happy with how the first collection turned out in layout of the songs on into the treatments I gave them. Level-wise, I used the most compressed song (Lenny!! ya gotta back off homie ) as the barometer of where the other songs would be raised to, which wound up averaging around 10db of dynamic range. The cool thing is, you can strap a compressor on pretty much any of the songs and squash them more and they still sound good which is a good barometer that the songs took well to the treatments so I was able to balance things spectrally pretty well in the short time I had with them all which was about 4-6 hours including the 2-album song layouts.
That is all. I hope you are all happy and have a great weekend. Cheers to the group effort we have here.
