didn't ntice any static here.  just make it work.

drums:  the answer is yes......HAHAHAHA

sorry, you have to fly blind on this one.

do what you think is the best move, that's what this whole thing is about.....you making the track what you think it needs to be without any input.


i'll try to unrar the archive again. maybe i got something on that track.

as for the drums, i totally understand the "make it work" paradigm, but i would think even worst case where a band dumps tracks in your lap they would mention if they had 2 drummers?

ah well. i'll make it work.  Twisted Evil

thanks!

Maybe we can add to the rules that you're supposed to submit the mix the way you would send it to a mastering engineer. The first few IMPs had submissions that were limited and compressed so hard that it was impossible to tell how the mix sounded. There's no need here to impress with a loud mix. This is where we exchange mixing skills, not make-it-loud mastering skills.

On the "Rhodes" track:  

Mine is full out distortion.  Sounds like it was tracked through a mini gtr amp dimed.....   I had asumed this was the intention, but now I read the other posts above, I have to ask: "is the Rhodes track supposed to sound like a Rhodes or is it an effects track?

Dosent matter really... I did my mix with is as it was... neat song.. took me 45 mins.  (that will be $300 please)(easy money if it was a paying gig)

timely song, with more americans now killed in iraq than in 9/11

i suppose, bush has now taken over osama as the head of the axis of evil

i'm finished with the mix, can i upload it?

surely, the idea of this is not to peek (it's not like it's graded or anything)

i don't like the idea of leaving it til one day next week

anything can happen, like the internet can go down or the broadband can cut out, or the dog could eat it

there is distortion on that guy, think it's on purpose. Personally I like all the little noise things (like the little bit of line noise / distortion on the wurli). Reminds me that real instruments still make music.  This is a fun song to mix. hats off to the band and engineeer. can't wait to get it uploaded (finished last night)

no, you are totally right, this is just an excercise of "more freedom" for you.  so where it might be frustrating, try to make it more "freeing"

the mixes should be submitted as you would submit for client approval.  for me that means bumping the level up with no gain reduction on the limiter.  not too interested in discussing it this time, i'm all ears for future IMPs

upload your song early and i'll delete it.

people might be done, but some one might be out of town and grab the tune over the weekend.  i don't want any mixes to be heard prior to tuesday.  they will only influence your mixing decisions.

consult the rules thread if something isn't clear.....and let me know if the rules thread doesn't cover anything.

B. No limiting. I'll re-do my output.

item A is certainly covered in my rules thread, perhaps not in the proper location, but it's in there.  i'll edit that thread after this IMP

item B has been hot topic since we started these things.

i limit my mixes.  whether or not the gain reduction meter does anything, i'm still bumping the level up witha limiter.

i can see why we shouldn't do it for this particular excersize, i just haven't pulled the trigger to do anything about it.

as of now, i couldn't care any less if you limit it or not.  i only want the submiting rules to be followed.

properly name your mp3
192k mp3's only
submit on the deadline, not before or after.

CRAP.  I didn't realize that we weren't supposed to upload.   Embarassed

J - Can you pull my down.  I downloaded, mixed, uploaded...  THEN read everyone elses posts (where I notice that you aren't supposed to upload.

So, is there an official date that we upload on?
