The team is excited to announce that we are producing another vocal CD in the fall of 2014! On January 20th, the team will travel to Indianapolis, IN, and will record 12-13 songs at Aire Born Studios for a week. We believe that this current team has produced many beautiful, Christ-exalting songs that will be a blessing to Christians everywhere, and we invite you to follow our progress as we seek to create a new vocal album for the fall.

We plan to post lots of pictures and articles during the recording process to reveal the tedious, yet exciting process of creating a new vocal album from start to finish.

At this point, we are making preparations for the recording week. We start by compiling a list of possible songs to put on the album, and then break down those songs into sub-categories like large ensembles, quartets, trios, etc. We also take note of the instrumentation for each song, and then decide if we should add something more to the songs in the studio like orchestra parts or synth pads. Currently the team is feverishly writing out individual Finale parts that will be assembled into one Finale document and put into an engineer’s notebook for easy reference. Writing out parts is good for two reasons: (1) it keeps us all on the same page during the recording, and (2) it serves as a starting point to create professional, digital sheet music that we can offer to you! In past, the team just played ‘by ear,’ or without music, but having everything written out in Finale saves us precious and expensive studio time.
