The industry standard master format, the DAT-tape is no longer in use. I still have lots of ideas and sketches in this format, so I will spend the weekend and the following days to transfer these to the computer as audio files.
Hopefully some forgotten gems might turn into full production in the future. It is always fun to listen to ones old ideas, some as far as back as 1993. Some of these files are already on albums like Fairytales..
Tech nerd alert: The optical ins of the Edirol UA-25 audio card captures the digital audio from the Sony 57 ES DAT player, kindly borrowed to me by Vegar Pedersen. Some trial and error with cables and sample rates and we are in motion!
With radio airplay and chart placement of “When Echoes Fade” last winter, release of the single “Aerial” in May, and re-recording of “Darling Blue” with Geir Halleland in August, the conclusion is that last year also had some musical highlights. Suddenly there will be some releases in 2021 too! Happy New Year!
