This is usually the point in mixing an album when hours of work suddenly materialise out of nowhere. A synth line is required, unexpectedly. Or a treatment involving vocals going through a sampler multiple times. Or something as simple - but time-consuming - as nudging instruments into time, will present itself out of the blue.
This record is really going to transcend its acoustic roots; not long to go now...

Aside from Ian Courtney album duties, I spent the morning doing some VO recording for a colleague. Cue hard gating settings and a theatrical tone of voice.
