A huge dino milestone: 10 Million views for the 3 Little Raptors, + some Better Than The Book album and Patreon updates!
Hi everyone! It's been another intensely busy week of editing the upcoming Better Than The Book album for me (more on that in a second) + I have a huge milestone I'd love to share with you. It's not going to be a long post this week, but let's get straight into it!
Firstly some updates on the Better Than The Book album. As it currently stands 8/10 tracks have been edited ready for some final freezing down of processing before mixing, and the 9th track is mostly there too (just the lead vocal takes and associated harmonies left to sort though). It's been admittedly very intense, so I'll likely take a little break after the editing to let my ears refresh ready for mixing. Seeing how it's all currently going, I recon I can finish the edits by the end of the month, then have all the freezing done by the end of the first week of November, ready to take a break in the weekend and get started mixing on Bonfire night (well not the night, but the day)! That's the plan for the moment anyway, but we'll see how it all goes and these are certainly things that can't be rushed. Wish me luck!
Onto the next piece of news this week, super exciting times as my first ever animation audio post-production job from back in 2014, "3 Little Raptors and the Big Bad Rex" by Fun Station 4 Kids (the sequel of which was featured in the Patreon intro video) just hit a whopping 10 MILLION views on YouTube! A huge congratulations to Fun Station 4 Kids and the rest of the 3 Little Raptors team on this awesome achievement! Amazing! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, go check out the animation below, and send FS4Ks some YouTube love! Enjoy!
Finally this week, just a quick note to say that the new Patreon rewards schedule starts next Wednesday 31th on Halloween! For all the $5+ patrons, they'll be receiving downloads of Better Than The Book's cover of Heartbeats by The Knife, as well as the 2015 Better Than The Book & Jabun collaboration GG [Good Game]! For those on the $1-2 tier, they'll be receiving their rewards on the following Wednesday in November, and for those on the $10+ tiers, look forward to a sneak peek into the creative process behind another of the tracks on the upcoming album! (though I've yet to decide which track). If any of that sounds exciting to you, then head over to Patreon (<<< Click here) to get a piece of the action (be sure to pick up the One Small Step EP from earlier this month too) and I look forward to sharing this music with you soon!
That's all for this week! I'm aiming to get the last 2 tracks of the album edited by the next blog post, and some if not all of the tracks frozen and ready for mixing too, but we'll see how it all goes. Until then, I hope you all have a great week and thanks as always for supporting JabunAudio and my various audio projects. All the best, and take care!
