    I guess it's like CAPE: Officially, it's not a competition.





    Officially.
    I'm probably talking shit.

    "Mixing most 'heavy' records is like trying to find order and lucidity in a recording of a Cathedral Pipe Organ, all stops out, randomly veering between Handel's Messiah, Ginestera's 2nd and a coupla Bach Fugues, in a Titanium kitchenware foundry, while a gaggle of enraged PCP snorting gorillas with bullhorns conduct a demolition derby with cement mixers against the soothing cacophony of a nearby landslide/tsunami/heavy artillery exchange."- Slipperman

    Here's my take: When you submit a mix (I'm going to try to fit one in too!) please be prepared to spill the beans and talk about it. That's the gist of it. A session file speaks a thousand words, but there's nothing to stop you from just talking about it.

    This is like a yankee christmas party...you bring a gift, you get a gift. Every mix will have SOMETHING worth taking home with you and adding to your kit.

    Please include info/rules regarding boundaries (or lack thereof) on remixing, re-arranging, retracking, adding new audio tracks (or leaving tracks out), adding sample or VSTi tracks, beat-detectiving/audio warping/time stretching, auto-tuning, etc. Anything that's not allowed should be explicitly stated.

    Sounds like great fun!

    I have a suggestion for this! if it takes the original musos more than one listen to decide that they've been cuckolded, then you pass!

    Yeah, you say it will be on your mbox but really you
    will have grabbed some spare hours at SingSing on the neve
    or ssl. And i'm not jealous at all.

    Your location is a lie, and your methods are a lie.

    You've changed man.

    I am SO there. I'm used to slugging it out with PSW guys in J. Hall's forum- challenging because the tracks can be absolutely anything, J usually has some angle he's working which might or might not be apparent to anybody else, and 99% of the entrants crit mostly with an eye to what they hate about all the other mixes

    That said, one of J's rules is helpful in stopping things from turning into CaPE Auxiliary: no overdubs, period. Hell, even sample replacement causes ME problems interpreting things- the last one, I got sounds off the original tracks as I always do. Quite a few guys got way better drum sounds than I did, and I asked what they did. Drumagog, drumagog, etc... they didn't GET a sound on the tracks I struggled with, they just picked a drum sound that was better and triggered it. Made me feel really stupid

    Is lurking allowed? I don't want to upload a song or mix, but would like to see what others are doing.

    When is the forum to sign up for the event going to be posted? I've seen the posts for song submissions. I'd like to mix "Simple Little Bird" by Aces High. That is for the moment though. Have to see what other songs are posted later on.

    I guess a poll will be made at the end of the submission period, and another thread for people to make comments on the songs and why they'd like to choose that song for the group to mix.

    ???

    I like all the submissions thus far, but S.L.B is edging it at the mo.

    How bad is you lifestyle when it freaks out Snoop Dog? Ask Amy Winehouse!

    Mac Pro 2.66GHz Quad, 10.5.8/6.4, 13GB Ram, Digi 002, PT 8.0.4/9, and lots of plugs... mmm!!!
