    MiX iT! 3 - Download + Mix It

    Sponsored by Kagi Media and Auraleo Advanced Learning


    Sign ups are now closed + we'd like to thank all of you who signed up for MiX iT! 3. We have 180+ mixers this time!! In this thread you'll find the links to download the files + the rules for the Mixing phase.


    Timeframe
    • You have 1 week starting now until Wednesday, April 23, 2008 to download the files.
    • You have 2 weeks starting now until Wednesday, April 30, 2008 to complete your mix.
    • We do not want you to upload your mix during these 2 weeks. There will be a dedicated thread for this starting on Wednesday, April 30, 2008 at which point you will have 48 hours to upload your MIX, until Friday, May 2, 2008.

    The Song


    The song you are about to MIX and which has won the submissions poll is:

    Aren't You Proud - by Strange Faces



    Strange Faces on MySpace

    Thank you very much Strange Faces + Mixerman for providing the multitrack masters of your song + production, and for allowing us to mix it. You guyz rock!!


    MiX iT! Rules

    Imagine the following scenario : You get a phone call from Mixerman. He wants you to mix his latest production, a track called 'Aren't You Proud' for the band Strange Faces. All tracking and editing has been done and now they want YOU to do a great MIX for them. And that is exactly what we want you to do ... MiX iT!
    1. You may mix the song using any tools you like (software or hardware).
    2. You may use sample replacement for the drums.
    3. Time or Pitch correction tools are NOT allowed.
      This event is about mixing, and that is what we want to focus on. While pitch or time correction tools may or may not find their way into your daily work flow, it is our strong opinion that these are not mixing tools. We think there is more to learn by working with the source files as they come. This event is first and foremost a learning experience.
    4. The only 'editing' exception we would like to allow is this : You can make creative arrangement decisions as long as you use the original audio files.
    5. You will provide us with a stereo mix (m4a, m4p, or AAC @ 192 Kbps... iTunes can be used) and a zipped version of your project/session file (if mixed with DAW), or jpgs of hardware settings (if mixed on console + OBG).

    Download Info


    In order to proceed you will have to download the audio files using the link below.
    • Download size: zipped approx 470 MB
    • After unzipping you will find 20 files in WAV format. Total size: approx 600 MB
    • These are rendered contiguous multi-track mono audio files @ 44.1k / 24 bit.
    • The files will be available for download for only 1 week until Wednesday, April 23, 2008.


    FLAC

    FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. This is similar to how Zip works, except with FLAC you will get much better compression because it is designed specifically for audio. FLAC stands out as the fastest and most widely supported lossless audio codec. Visit their website for more info.

    We recommend these apps to decode FLAC files:

    Windows: FLAC for Windows 1.21b
    (Note for Vista users: if the installer is getting stuck, try this workaround)
    Mac: xACT 1.62

    Some other options: FLAC Downloads


    Participants

    One question:

    I thought that in MiXiT2 the uploaded mix files were 192kbps. Why the change back to 160?

    Haha, you can hear mixie talking in the overheads after the song ends

    Great tracks, really looking forwards to mixing them!
    BTW, can I have some details about the drums, heads, snare, brass (tm), etc? They sound phenomenal!

    Timeframe[LIST][*] You have 1 week starting now until Wednesday, April 23, 2008 to download the files.
    And it seems like it's going to actually take that long, for me. Slow server much? 37kb/sec here.

    How come no FLAC/Wavpack this time round? Too much hassle from MiXiT2?

    I believe .zip compression is about 80% close to what FLAC can achieve as for reduction of filesize.
    When in doubt, mumble!

    Hi all,

    I was so glad to participate to this event but it appears that I cannot unzip the file on my mac.
    I tried with stuffit expander Bom Archiver and Zip it.
    I don't know what is wrong with the file. If somebody could tell me if he has the same kind of problem or somebody who could help me.

    Thanks

    I'm actually ready with both mixing and documentation. Damn this was nice. I didn't listen to it beforehand so now I'm gonna enjoy Mixermans version.

    Holy crap - fly me the rest of the album.

    I had no problems unzipping the file, however, when I attempt to audition any one of the files through Windows Media Player I get an error that says "Class Factory cannot supply requested Class". That could be due to them being 24 bit, though, because Nuendo didn't seem to have a problem importing the random one I tried. Maybe try a different program to audition a couple of the individual .wavs?
