Second day into the job and currently familiarising myself with the Cubase DAW, working mainly on mix session prep work. For today, I was taught to insert all the minor edits for a mix session such as trimming the tracks, inserting fade-ins and outs for all the tracks, to which I was tasked to complete for the remainder of the session.
For the rest of the day observing a vocal tracking session for local talent "Aina" for her upcoming single, further observing my supervisor's work flow on Cubase.
Wrapped up the day by finishing my mix session prep, with feedback from JD to work on more details during the prep edits. Further learnt how to add relevant plugins specific to JD template before being dismissed for the day.
