The Superlatives - Super Demos

After nearly two months of sporadically working on the album demos we've finished. Three songs completed for others to hear. These will be posted on our website in the next week or so and if the band can afford it, we may have the tracks mastered and put onto cd for promotional purposes.

I strongly recommend a ProTools 6.X setup on a Mac as a viable recording solution. Although a G4 iMac with only 768MB of memory might be cutting it close if you will be using many of the plugins or a large number of tracks. The recording equipment and software cost $1195 but was well worth the price. The iMac was another $2K or so, but Apple just announced their new G5 iMacs which should nicely do.

The Superlatives has a few gigs over the next couple of weeks. I suspect after we finish those we will put together the plan for the cd. We have been toying with the idea that we will use fewer tracks, maybe 5-6 instead of the 8 or 9 we had originally discussed. And then to throw everything off Katie mentioned tonight she has two more songs she has been working on, one of which is probably worthy of our next batch of recordings.

For those of you wanting to hear the tunes, you can check out our website under the Music section, or you can pester me at a show or via email and I'll post them or burn a disc for you.
