I've uploaded two clips of the Bonny Swans rehearsal we had. There isn't much more of use, because we stopped and started so often (perfectly understandable, as this was the first time we were all playing it out together).|
I'm at the point where I honestly can't do this any more, which really sucks because I personally find it a great learning tool. I have to play the recordings in real time to transfer them, which means anywhere between seventy to eighty minutes where I have to pay attention and stop and start to make separate files, then another hour and a half of editing the files, then exporting them to MP3, then uploading them (the latter is the easiest part, of course). It was hard enough to find the time to do it when I was working at home; the time no longer exists at all in my current schedule. (Frankly, I don't have time to anything but eat and go to bed at night now.)
I'm annoyed because I'd like to upload some of the Sandman rehearsal we had, because I'm sure it sounds awesome, as well as giving us hints as to how to adjust timing. Except to find bits to post, I have to listen attentively to the whole thing first and select portions to copy/edit/export/upload. Same goes for last week's ass-kicking setlist run.
What I think we'll do now is only record the stuff we're specifically working, as a learning aid, or specific songs people request, to a max of thirty minutes of stuff. I can't see how I can fit working on any more than that into my schedule, and even that's going to be a challenge.
So apologies, gang.
