I can imagine that happening so that they could publish it online.

That was always what I figured--Jimbo mixed it so they could give it to XM for the debut. I expect him to tweak the mix of that song a bit as he's mixing the rest, too, so it all fits together.

Sounds like they were also doing some recording until recently...surely going for the best possible product. That's how it's done. Take the time to get it right.

When all is said and done, the real band may very well spend as much time mixing & mastering their album as the Tater spent on writing, recording, mixing, mastering, remixing, spinning, & bullshitting. As Ministry once said " The way to succeed.... and the way to suck eggs". I can't wait to hear what the guys & Jimbo have come up with.  :metal:

That's what I thought when the Euro tour rescheduled. The album needed more work. Mixing could bring some of the guys at the console too...

So glad to hear the boys are taking their time with this one. All eyes are on them, so I imagine the pressure is on to ensure they deliver a solid product.

the Camp Tate faction

That's giving them too much credit.  If they were even a fraction of a faction, they'd probably get more traction than such a negative reaction.

LOL!

Now I'm curious if Redemption would get some kind of "treatment" like tweaking the chorus vocals so they don't sound so "inorganic" and more natural to Todd's voice like it was criticized when the song was released, or if they're going to leave that one as "DONE"....?

Considering that it can be a good 8 hours of mixing per song, I'd venture to guess that with the complexity of QR's music, the many layers, it'll push the 10 hours per song mark.

You have to eq/comp/pan, pre-program fader swells, fade outs, aux-sends/return levels per event, etc...  Even though much of today's mixing occurs "in-the-box" meaning "on the computer" there are envelope assignments for each parameter, practice runs, troubleshooting, references listens on multiple speaker sets to ensure mixes translate to each listening environment objectively.  Lots of notes get taken.  It actually used to take even longer when analog mixes were done completly live, by hand.

Mastering can take a bit less time, but it's also time consuming because you're trying to maintain some level of continuity in volume/tone/character from song to song to ensure that the band "sound" is relevant, all the while trying to give each song its own character and identity.

As a rule, I never mix post production on my own music, just to get objective ears involved.

I'm sure Jimbo will do just fine, as he's proven in the past.

It's not so much Jimbo that can do well, it's what the record company and radio stations would request that he needs to do to cater to their needs...

I hope they do the entire mix in a couple days to get the album out as soon as possible. If anything goes amiss they can always ask a couple random fans and aspiring home studio owners to remix the songs individually as it gets super close to release date. That way they could have all kinds of people remixing individual songs at the same time to give the album more character!
