I am VERY happy to say that I received an email from Yanic (my producer) the other day and drums are now recorded for the upcoming album “More Than Ever.”  Editing will come next and then we’ll be onto mixing the record and getting our guest vocalists into the studio.  So, that’s what’s going on with the record…

What’s going on with everything else? Well, I’ve still been working with the synth and samples.  I had met with the ACC Knox worship leader Jarrod Justice to discuss possibilities with orchestration/new sounds/new music at the church..   And while the worship band is still young, there’s potential for adding some synth texture (a la David Crowder) and some double keyboard orchestration (a la Hillsong).  Therefore, the past couple of evenings here in the studio has been spent figuring out/arranging the logistics of running my synthesizer/midi controllers efficiently for live worship.  95% of those issues have been overcome. Huzzah;  so.. I’ve still been creating new synth textures………. and playing with the vocoder.….  Yes.. it has its possibilities too 😉
