Share

I finally made a checklist for what I do to release each album. This will help me.

FYI, every one of these steps are actually several, or many, steps.

Posting to website so I won’t lose it. lol.


WHEN ALL SONGS DONE:

  • Sequence songs.
  • Do many single-file album outputs getting levels right between songs.
  • Replace any songs with issues.
  • Do single-file album output, checking levels are right.
  • Needle drops on single file
  • Analysis on left vs. right volumes, adjust tiny bit if needed, then recheck.
  • Raise and lower by tiny bit any songs and sections too quiet or too loud
  • Listen to entire file.
  • Work on lyric sheet while listening. Include notes and microtonal scales, and notes about making of songs, if there is a story.
  • Make any needed adjustments.
  • Replace curly quotes with straight in Lyric sheet
