    Creative Commons Info

    Creative Commons is the license the remix sites are using to do remix events similar to what we're going to do here. The following is an explanation of what Creative Commons is about from

    “Some Rights Reserved”: Building a Layer of Reasonable Copyright

    Too often the debate over creative control tends to the extremes. At one pole is a vision of total control — a world in which every last use of a work is regulated and in which “all rights reserved” (and then some) is the norm. At the other end is a vision of anarchy — a world in which creators enjoy a wide range of freedom but are left vulnerable to exploitation. Balance, compromise, and moderation — once the driving forces of a copyright system that valued innovation and protection equally — have become endangered species.

    Creative Commons is working to revive them. We use private rights to create public goods: creative works set free for certain uses. Like the free software and open-source movements, our ends are cooperative and community-minded, but our means are voluntary and libertarian. We work to offer creators a best-of-both-worlds way to protect their works while encouraging certain uses of them — to declare “some rights reserved.”
    Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 License

    Everyone who downloads the chosen song's multitrack files must agree to the terms of Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 License. Our basic purpose here is to protect the owners of the multitrack audio files from having others use their audio for commercial gain.

    This license will grant the following rights to those downloading the tracks. The following is from

    You are free:

    to Share — to copy, distribute and transmit the work

    Under the following conditions:
    • Attribution. You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).
    • Noncommercial. You may not use this work for commercial purposes.
    • No Derivative Works. You may not alter, transform, or build upon this work.
    • For any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others the license terms of this work. The best way to do this is with a link to this web page.
    • Any of the above conditions can be waived if you get permission from the copyright holder.
    • Nothing in this license impairs or restricts the author's moral rights.

    Sounds like a good idea... here is a solid song roughly mixed and I have the recording files as mono AIFF all synced starting and ending, and I have the rights to the pieces and recordings as well. If the song is chosen (god willing) where and how should I send all the audio? as Auraleo has little on the subject, and well it is a butt load of data to be sending via the net.


    Note: a wee bit of amp farm (I know it's wrong) used on the guitar soloing as it was done clean, but it sort of needs to be chunky and dist.

    I just joined this community after one of the members recommended it to me a while ago. Thanks jord(I'm from the fxpansion board). I look forward to chatting with you all and exchanging ideas.

    Anyway, what better way to start my posting than posting for this event. Here is a track I did with a good friend, I control the rights to this song and would be glad to enter it for MiX iT.

    The song is called, "Give Me A Kiss". It has a lot of familar chord progessions and melody which makes it a good canidate to experiment with different mixes. It was writen by me and the person singing. He isn't the best singer but with a little bit of coaching I was able to get him to sing well. His name is Ronald Payne and wrote the words for his grand daughter and I was compelled to record it. We ended up using a Gefell M990->Aurora Audio GTQ2->Rossetta 200. The guitars were tracked through a Strat->Peavy Classic 30->Royer 121 and 57->GTQ2. Acoustic guitars was a Taylor, miced with AKG 451 EB with the CK1 capsule going into a darker mic pre(Apogee Mini MP) as the GTQ2 can be a bit bright for the Taylor.

    The synths are VSTs, and the drums are Fxpansion's BFD, with the Evil Drums expansion pack.

    The one thing I will be adding is a mandolin solo in the middle instead of the acoustic guitar solo in the middle. The solo right now is there to provide the melody line that the mandolin will be playing. I haven't dedicated that much time to the mix so far as it was not a paying project, eventually I would like to finish it.

    I would like to put up for consideration 2 songs that my cowriter and I have been working on as part of a project we are doing and that I am sure could be mixed much better than I have done. It would be great to see how the pro's do it and use techniques learnt from it on my mixes for the rest of the project and future projects.

    I own the rights to the tracks etc and am happy to abide by the rules etc.

    The tracks were recorded on a protools 002 rack system using fairly budget micrphones. Cad mikes for the drums with nt5 as overheads. Sm57 for guitars through Marshall amp.Accoustic Yamaha recorded with se1. Bass through bass pod and vox through se1. The premamp was a focusrite octopre.

    Both songs under the name of The Sofa Project. Song one "The Lonesome Party Hero" and song 2 "Outside"

    Many Thanks
