    Default While you wait for the next MixIt

    I am currently gathering all my material to see what's left to compose for my project and I found a song whose multitrack was supposedly lost. The problem with old projects is the lack of old VSTi whereas this song was completed with bounced tracks as well. And as there's no good mix (the snare was smashed senseless in the only existing master) I decided to mix it again. And the simplest way to do it is to bounce out the bounces and import the tracks into my newer template.

    So here it is. Nobody will be around to give you any marks but you may criticise your fellow mixer's efforts yada yada.

    A few notes on the song. All acoustic guitars were tracked with a Brauner Valvet through an AMEK CIB into a Lucid 9624. The files are 44.1 24-bit wave. The track VerseSynth is completely obsolete (I have no recollection of recording it and it's not present in my mix).

    The drums are tracked elsewhere but lacks OH and room tracks. Weird! The bass is DI'ed into the AMEK CIB. The dist guitar is a UniValve to a Randall IsoBox probably micked w a 57 or a CAD E-100.

    All symphonic elements are Reason Orchestra bounces. Piano is Steinberg The Grand bounced. Arpeggio is KORG MS-2000 into Lucid. All other synths are Spectrasonics Atmosphere.

    PS I haven't started mixing yet so I don't know if all elements are correctly aligned etc

    The file is 650 MB and consists of 40+ tracks. If you wanna make a remix instead - go ahead. I'd love to hear a remix.

    Can you post a rough (or your mix when it's ready)? Maybe I'd give it a go, but before downloading I'd like to see whether it is something I feel I can mix.
    When in doubt, mumble!

    EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE SHIT IF YA LISTEN LONG AND HARD ENOUGH.

    I'd prefer to have you NOT listening to the track beforehand. If you insist I'll send a link.

    I found two missing guitars so I am currently upgrading the zip file. Should be it. Wait an hour...

    Ready!

    Forget everything. The newly supplied MixIt_DIY.zip file is correct in every aspect.

    hey thanks for putting up this !
    i'm downloading....i'll give it a try !!!!


    My Mixes on Soundcloud


    With great monitors its easy to hear and fix problems but hard to enhance things that already sound good.

    With hyped monitors, everything sounds good so you don't hear the problems.

    With bad monitors, it seems easy to make absolutely anything sound better because you are really fixing the sound of the monitors rather than the sound of the recording.

    It's more tracks than I'm used to dealing with, but I gave this a shot, and I'm pretty happy with the results.

    Is there a preferred method of upload? A lot of the time, uploading is seen as asserting ownership in the eyes of the fine text, and I don't want to step on anyone's toes.

    Or is Soundcloud fine, and I'm putting to much thought into it?

    If you wanna present your effort - it's ok with me. I've heard the song 500+ times and may or may not listen once more. Kinda tired of the track but need to mix it to perfection first.

    Soundcloud and a link seems a good idea.

    Hope you had fun.

    Yeah, it was fun, and I took a few things away from it. There were a couple of moments where I thought I was going to pull my hair out, but I surprised myself.

    I guess my main concern is that it isn't bold enough of a mix.

    Yer gonna feel pretty wrong when I come sailing into your breakfast nook behind the wheel of a cement mixer, and start twiddling around on yer skull with a fucking tire iron. I'll be humming "Watcher of the Skies" the whole while.

    I've downloaded the zip file.

    676 MB but only 37 Tracks. Is there is missing something?

    No. There were a few tracks too much. Your track count is correct.

    Yo... so I tried to make something out of it this afternoon.

    Hey Pär, you definitely need a new drum computer hahaha

    The song is mixed on a new monitoring system, not my trusted NS10s/Me-Geithain combo. So any feedback regarding translation would be really great. For best audio quality you can download the highres file, otherwise you'll listen to the crappy 128bit mp3 streaming.


    Cheers,
    Andy

    I'm very glad that the revision got Uploaded AFTER I did a rough mix. Now I get to do it twice.:sly:

    I certainly thought so!

    I used to have a saying:
    "If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all!"

    However, I'm thinking this just disproves that theory!
