My cd will be done next month!

Wow, guys...

I'm really almost there xD I'm thinking if I keep all the deadlines that I'll be done recording the songs around the 23rd or the following week on the 30th (if I add a 13th song to the group)

After that will be the whirlwind of mastering, CD replication services, and hasty website building.
Dunno how long that will take, but I'm going to make sure it doesn't take too long! O.o After all, the hard part will be over ^0^

Mastering means I take my tracks to a pro sound engineer and have him make everything the same volume and create the 'master' which is the CD that all the replications will be made from.

The replication service will make the discs, print all the booklets and covers, and wrap everything in shiny celophane xD
I'm worried that too many people won't want the physical album in favor of downloads, but I'm putting a lot of love into the booklet's art so I hope some of you will try to get the actual thing ^0^;; pleeease?

1) there will be 13 songs on the album.

2) I will be releasing my performer/stage name along with the CD ^_^
I won't be using my real name or katethegreat19.

3) I have no plans currently to sell the album on itunes, because along with CD baby (the company that gets me on itunes) they will take 60 percent of my earnings. O.o So I'll be selling it on my website so that I can keep more of my income >_>

4) The album only will contain songs I've written and composed the melody for, so no covers and nothing you've ever heard before ^_^ (er...except for the cover of Scarborough Fair, but that's the only one and that's hundreds of years old so it's public domain ^_^ lol)

5) After it's release I will go back to doing the game and anime covers again ^0^
I miss them!


*hugs* and I hope to have something to show you guys really soon!!

  2. Glad to hear it's nearing completion, as it's been quite a while since we last heard from you. I've been missing your game and anime covers.

    It's been a long time since I actually bought a CD, but I most definately want this one.

    (First post had annoying typo, so I felt I had to delete and write a new one. Mild case of OCD perhaps? =P)

  3. Aww, thank you for the news Kate :D! I'm so excited about the album release!

    Wow, I didn't expect a performer name! *Hollow wants to know it! xD*
    Of course I'll try to get the physical copy if I'm able to *__*

    Always at your service, (xD)

  4. I can't wait to hear it!!! We miss your covers too but I'm super excited to hear the originals, too. Since it's coming out after this month I'll be able to buy the real cd since I won't be living in Germany anymore. And the company taking 60% of your profits is greedy in my opinion. I wouldn't put my stuff on iTunes for that price, either. Glad you're doing well!! Big hugs!

  5. I'm so excited!! I can't wait to buy it!!

  6. I can't help but wonder though, isn't it a bit late to be using a stage name? I mean, you are pretty well known on youtube, and I assume you will advertise from there.

  7. YAYYY! I can't wait to get it! Congrats Kate!

  8. Hey Kate! Congrats on the CD! I'm also stopping by to congratulate you on the submission to OCRemix! Now lots more people are going to hear your awesome music! =]

  9. Congratulations Kate. I only heard of you about a week ago through a friend in work who STRONGLY reccommended you. We are both HUGE Nobuo Uematsu fans and I absolutely love what you've done with his work.

    Several things I have to ask. I can understand if you don't read this and don't reply, you must have a busy schedule.

    I would love to buy your album, but where will it be selling from?

    How will I know if it's your album if you are releasing your name with the album? It will have no connection with any of your names previously?

  10. Ah!!! So exciting! Im sooo going to buy it. lol! I'm so happy for you that you're almost done, that must be a huge weight lifted from your shoulders, i cant even imagine!

    I'm also looking forward for you to do covers again, i always loved those! ^_^ Well, im looking forward to seeing it, thanks for the update on what's happening! ^_^
