Editing

Since the rhythms section was recorded, I am editing various takes to create a composite track for each instrument.  Luckily, the musicians on the sessions (Alejandro Arenas, Jeremy Douglass & Mark Feinman) are exceptional and accurate players.  That greatly reduces the amount of time that I have to spend editing in Pro Tools (the recording platform used). It's still 6 to 8 hours of time to produce a rough mix of the rhythm section.  After that, we will add guitar, flute, saxophone, hand percussion and vocals, before we tackle the next stage of final mix.

There are never enough hours in the day, but that's been the situation for many years.
