A PICTURE AND THE STORY BEHIND
When it comes to the mix of a song or album, it does not matter, how many monitor systems you have in your studio. Your mix will sound everywhere different.
Often the moment of truth is, when you listen to the mix in your car the first time.
This time it was not different. The bass drum kicked me out of my socks.
Far to massive.
Since I can’t get my car into my little studio, I had the idea to bring the studio into my car. Nowadays with a DAW’s on a laptop it is possible to do a final touch on the mix while your car becomes the control room.
Here is a little video that shows that it is possible, after I have copied the project to a laptop, to listen and correct the mix, while you’re sitting in the car.
The first section is a track that features, beside others, Marco Minnemann and Pete Trewavas, and the second one features Todd Suchermann on the drums. For both snippets I’ve blended over from the video sound to the current state of the Mix.
Here is a little video how it went -You might like it ;-)

It is less about playing or production techniques but rather giving audible examples.
Again, the amazing Marco Minnemann has come up with a mind-blowing performance.
And he is not alone - We are proud to announce, that another legend has joined the Pilots. The latest member offers a spectacular bass-performance.
And there is also a scientific description about, "what is a progressive song?" ;-) In case you didn't know...
We wish all our friends a prosperous, healthy and happy new year.
We're looking with much excitement into 2020, as we will release our second album in the next couple of months.
Love and Peace from the Pilots

PRODUCTION DIARY PART 1
Recently we have received a few questions about the new album we want to share with you. And the answers to it as well of course.
A) Will be the same musicians performing on the new album?
Yes & no. Quite some from the last squad as well as new, but known faces will join for the new album.
B) What are the differences to the last album? Are there any?
1) We have for example more “real” songs.
Does this mean we lack of long & epic tracks?
Not at all. The new album will simply have more tracks and a longer run time
2) There will be songs that we will compose and produce together.
Over the last weeks we have made some progress and so far we are more than happy with the results...
