The Ramone- Bass Fail

After finishing the audio/visual bass tracks and trying to sync them up to the drum parts, I have realized that they aren’t fitting together
I know what the problem is and how to fix it but that means I am going to have to redo all the bass parts again
I could “fix it in post” but it would take as much time if not more than just starting over
My original plan for bass parts was to shoot videos first but not to record the audio
I would go back and overdub the bass parts because I didn’t want the added pressure of getting the recordings right whilst on camera
There were lots of clunker notes and I just thought this would make things faster and less stressful
The cardinal mistake was that I used my laptop to record the audio for the drums but used my Boss digital 8 track for the bass audio
That’s probably one of the first things they teach you in recording school but I was so deep in the process that I just wanted to get the bass tracks finished

I am super wound up and anxious about this because of all the work I have to scrap but I can remember not being really happy with the first round of bass recordings anyways
I am unsure how long it will take to redo all of the bass tracks and it is definitely going to set me back on my ability to start doing the full Live Ramones Karaoke next year
