week 29: arms of my savior

There's no other place, That I'd rather be
than safe in the arms, the arms of my savior


Confession: I wasn't going to post this tonight. This track's got some issues, if I'm honest, it's not quite finished, we lost a fair amount of work accidentally while mixing and I still don't think I corrected everything that was erased...but regardless of all that, I feel like I should post what I have, even if it's incomplete.

From a producer standpoint: This song was really difficult to mix, and I don't know how to fix some of the problems. Vocals were particularly difficult, I was working on mixing at the end but couldn't even find some of the frequencies that were buzzing? I wasn't clipping so I don't really know how to go about reconciling some of those frequencies. I also went back and forth on where to put vocals in the mix. We had a lot of tracks and I kind of guessed on where to place things? Finding the pockets is proving difficult.

Word vomit aside, this is a song I love and a track that was really fun to work on. I hope to keep tinkering with it but I also want it out from under pressure so I'm posting it while it's not quite done. I hope you like how it's coming together anyway. It's easier to keep messing around when it's out in the open!

The song is Arms of My Savior by Lincoln Brewster
