JabunAudio is finally open again, last week's Patreon rewards are here for the $1 patrons (mp3s + art only) with a special bonus reward: a quick tour of the new studio + setting and reflecting on more monthly goals!
Hi everyone and hope you're having a great start to November! It's been a busy time here at JabunAudio this week and although later than expected (after almost 2 months of downtime), I'm super excited to announce that JabunAudio is finally relocated, calibrated and open again to help with all your digital mastering, music production, and animation audio needs! Feels great to be back to it and there's so much I want to get done before closing up again for the winter break too! As always, feel free to explore the portfolio and services list via the navigation links above to see what JabunAudio is all about, and if you're a creator who uses audio then I look forward to working with you on your projects soon! I've a couple of little web updates to do in the coming weeks, as well as putting together a new mastering demo reel later this month, but first thing on the cards will be some long overdue guitar recording for a little fun project! Looking forward to that! Apart from all that news above which has taken most of my week to sort out, it's been an extra exciting few days for Patreon rewards so let's start by diving into that!
Yesterday was the first Wednesday of the month, and naturally, the $1+ Patreon rewards have just gone out, Mp3s and artwork for last week's $5 tier rewards: Better Than The Book's "Get A Haircut [Radio Edit]" which was featured BBC Introducing last month (a Patreon exclusive download) + Jabun's "3rd September 1939"! Feel free to read more on the dedicated Patreon post here:
With JabunAudio just re-opened too, I've put together a special bonus reward for all the Patreon supporters too: a quick tour of the new studio with pictures and a Q&A in the comments section! Join in for as little as $1 and pick up all previous rewards for your tier (Including the full Better Than The Book discography, Patreon exclusive bonus downloads and more) when you do and check out a teaser photo of the new studio below! Hope to see you there!
Finally this week, it's the beginning of another month, so as has become tradition, let's reflect on last month's goals and set some new ones for November! Here's what was set for October:
1) Finish setting up and acoustically treating / calibrating the new studio, and re-open JabunAudio
2) Join PRS for Music and sort registrations
3) Sort the Patreon rewards for the next 2 months and schedule the posts
Now I didn't think I'd be able to get most of these done, but it looks like everything went better than expected! Although JabunAudio re-opened at the beginning of this week rather than by the end of October, it's all ready for this blog post so that's what counts! I didn't take into account the admin time for registering for PRS, but after many MANY spreadsheets and forms, my PRS application is all sorted and all the necessary works registered and tagged with the IRSCs on PPL too, so that's grand! And I managed to schedule those Patreon reward posts up until Christmas so that's great too! 3/3 goals sorted!
This coming month is looking to be VERY busy with various things, both business, creative and personal, what with the holiday season coming soon, but I feel like I've a lot to catch up on so I'll still be setting a fair few goals here, though they'll be less urgent than last month's.
1) Put together and publish a new mastering demo reel for 2019
2) Finish some small web updates I've been meaning to do
3) Record vocals and guitar solos for a cover song that's been on the back-burner the past few months
4) Start putting together ideas for a new Jabun album/EP to release next year
I've also got the usual November to do list of sorting Christmas presents and travel (among other things) so these 4 goals feel a good balance of productive and fun! Wish me luck, and feel free to post your own goals in the comments too! Best of luck with yours!
And that wraps things up for this blog post! I'm going to be busy on those first 3 goals for much of this coming week I'm sure, and there's some other stuff in the works to come soon too so we'll see how it all plays out! Until the next one, I hope you have a great week whatever you're up to and thanks as always for supporting JabunAudio and my various projects! Hope you enjoy the Patreon rewards if you've signed up and take care!
