Over the past week I have listened to over 100 different musicians, many submitting more than one recording. Each recording is placed into a master file with all the other recordings by the same instrument and matched up with the original click track.
Some of the recordings are extremely accurate and require no real adjustment other than making sure the first note lines up. Other recordings take a bit more care. Still, the overall quality of the recordings is much higher than I expected.
Add to this all the administrative work necessary to try and keep straight whose file belongs with whom, who has submitted an audition and who hasn’t.
This is a pretty long process, and I’ve a long ways to go before it’s done.
- If there was a question of my sanity for starting this project in the first place? Well, I’m certain it’ll be completely gone by the time I’m finished with auditions!
