WITH the artwork for the album and pre-cursor single all done first job of the day is to sort the metadata and upload the files for the single – Meet Me in the City – to my digital distributor.
Once done, I concentrate on sorting out the mastering for the rest of the album. I need to get to masters – one with for CD and one for online/streaming. if the levels are too high for the streaming masters, the services will bring the levels down and their algorithim is not great for the quality of the streamed tracks. CD, on the other hand, can handle much less headroom.
Our local flower show is tomorrow and a big event in the community calendar. As well as flowers and veg, there are categories for photographs, and crafts so i make a leather keyring and then decide I also wanna enter a couple of photos. They need printed so they fit within the specified size guidelines, mounted and captioned.
There’ was no time for a walk earlier, so once my entries are ready i take a walk to the village hall and drop them off…then we visit Betty and Joe for a wee catch up before dinner.
back home I make a green curry which we enjoy…but not long after eating I start to feel a bit dodgy. Uh-oh. Here we go again. The sickness strikes and I throw up every fifteen minutes or so…that, along with hot and cold sweats doesn’t make for a great night…
