Lots of technical difficulties :mad:

This should suffice for now, though. Also what the heck, Soundcloud really downgrades sound quality by a fairly significant amount. Never noticed before, somehow.

As with everything, there was a delay with the art before. I would estimate that it will be done after the project is released, but still too soon to tell. He did start sketching out some ideas today, though. I'm not going to be sharing art like I have with music here, but I did want to share the rough pen drawing he did of the Fat Man:



We decided to go in a weird direction.  :gracie:

That direction sure is looking eye catching. That Rough sketch looks good. Kinda interest on what the end product might look like for sure.

Also what the heck, Soundcloud really downgrades sound quality by a fairly significant amount. Never noticed before, somehow.

I know I'm a bit late on this (not just this specific post, but the project as a whole), but:

  • Soundcloud transcodes audio to 128kbps for streaming purposes. The loss in quality can be mitigated by uploading at 320kbps, preferably dithered/noise-shaped twice with complementary encoding, or by uploading a lossless format and just waiting it out when your upload time nearly doubles. The rest depends on your mix/master--a few questions to consider:
    -how are you controlling your dynamics (both on individual tracks and the 2bus)?
    -have you left adequate headroom?
    -how are your levels - what kinds of meters have you been using to monitor them?
    -how is your imaging: is it spatially or spectrally congested?
    There are also things to consider during tracking to improve your recording quality: AD/DA conversion if applicable, gain staging, mic technique, phase alignment, room mode, even the quality of your cables, among other things...
  • If you need any mix engineering, mastering, or additional production, let me know; [assuming you're not working on tape] I'd be happy to offer my services. I do this shit professionally now (and I'm usually not cheap, but you're cool and this project is awesome, so we'll call it pro bono :D)

Any help would be beyond appreciated! I'll send you a PM tomorrow so I don't have to spend 3 hours typing a message on a freaking Wii U

Also, since I'm here anyway, for the sake of everyone else I'll let you guys know that the last recording session is the first weekend of August. After that, it's just a matter of getting everything sounding as good as possible and then into your ears. The art may be delayed a bit, but other than that everything is just about done and ready to go.

My goal is to have this complete and ready for you by the end of August, but as usual, that's just a personal goal and it might not happen. But stay tuned because we're finally in the home stretch!

I believe the last possible release window I had been tossing around was "summer", but that ends in 2 days and you guys know the drill by now - anytime I announce any sort of date for anything it never happens by then. This is what game developers must feel like.

I could actually have From The Lake released by my summer deadline because all recording has been completed but that's not going to happen, because as some of you know and as the rest may have gleaned from the posts above, Dertt is awesome and is doing the mixing and mastering for me! This means it will take a little longer, but it will be worth the wait. What they've sent me so far has sounded amazing and is so much better than what I would have been capable of doing. You shouldn't (hopefully) have to wait much longer, though. I'm not going to give any estimates out because we all know how that goes, so I'll just say a release is right around the corner.

So from this point, everything is mostly in Dertt's hands. (uh... no pressure)  :tinysmile:

Well it's finally time. From The Lake will release on Tuesday, Nov. 22! Those of you that are donors should receive your advance copy in a couple of hours or so - it's uploading now.
