It's been a busy two weeks, firstly a few days in the London studio, then some time away, then back to the album for the majority of this week. It's been productive! More stuff to tell and celebrate too, so lets get started :D
Firstly, I'd like to say a huge thanks to all my followers on Newgrounds for reaching 100 Fans on the Jabun Newgrounds page! It means a lot to have so many people listening and watching, and the feedback and reviews I see are really nice to read. Thanks to all of you for taking Jabun to the big triple digits! I hope to exceed your expectations with the next upload!
Next, some more updates on the Better Than The Book Album! After some fantastic feedback in a review session from the album's beta testing team (and a few suggested tweaks), "Hearts Racing" was labelled complete! Since then, using the finished "Hearts Racing" as a suitable reference, I've finished mixing another 2 tracks, bringing the total to 3! 3 tracks done, 6 to go. Still a lot of work left to do, but it's certainly getting there! A huge thanks again to the beta team for all their feedback and suggestions. This album couldn't be complete without your contribution :D
Lastly, and rather peculiarly, I recently won a drum competition on GAK's Facebook Page! The contest was simply to caption a picture, and their favorite entry would be sent some mystery Wincent Drumsticks Prizes! It was great to receive some light maple sticks (in contrast to my usual heavy pair), metal brushes and some hickory chips for the BBQ, though I'm not sure when I'll be able to use them properly in the near future as I lack the necessary apparatus. Surely this must be a sign that it's time to get my own drum kit!? Perhaps when I have more studio space XD Still, those sticks/brushes will make for some awesome sound design tools! Big thanks to GAK and Wincent Drumsticks for all the prizes! I look forward to putting them to good use soon :D
That's it for this week! Not sure what's going on next week, so it could be more London, or more BTTB. We shall see! Until then, hope you have a happy/spooky Halloween, eat sweets and watch horror movies responsibly (if you're into those things), and I shall see you next week! Thanks for supporting JabunAudio and take care!
