Hey man, Bob worked on the mixing and the mastering. I had a buddy of mine in Brooklyn named Jorge André Rivera do the MIDI programming, cause the dude is a whiz in that area. Everything else I did. Dealing with a band is so damned difficult, and finding people dedicated enough to practice at least 3 times a week is almost impossible. Honestly, had I waited for other people in order to complete this first album, it would have never had come out. That's why I decided to just to do it all myself. And I totally get you on that stem subject. I wish I had all of Images and Words in stems, and In Absentia as well. That would be amazing.
