sometimes as a mix engineer you mix a lot of stuff you dont like.

thats the downside of mixing for a living. the upside is, you're mixing for a living.

these IMP's are meant to teach people, to be a learning experience for those trying to improve their skills. if you dont like it dont do it.

now, how about we all have a beer and get to work instead of whining like a little fucking kid.  Very Happy

i for one can't wait to hear it and have at it. i havent had time to do these in a looong time. unfortunately i'll have to do it in my temporary space at my new house. time to find those peaks and nulls!

This song don't work, i have totally rearranged it.
I propose to remove rule for not adding parts for this IMP.



i'll tell you what doesn't work.  all your trash talk on my forum.  i've let it slide for a while calling it a "language barrier" but i've had enough.

you haven't followed the rules of IMP the last two times, and when i've called you out on it, you just ignore me.

i'm far too busy to put up with any of this, get it under control or i'll do so for you.



I thought it was the language barrier, too, until I noticed that this guy has just an
enormous talent in making friends at PSW (read from there on till the end of the thread.

i don't get it either (by it i am referring to the negative comments not the track). if a client walks in, you should be able to mix it eh? mixing something outside your comfort zone should just show your chops, or reveal your weaknesses. I personally like the tune. but, i'm in the indie rock forum for a reason i guess. what 1" did you use j? 15 or 30? i still fire up my mx70 for some rock stuff at the home studio (otherwise it's 2"). reminds me a bit of low. cool tune.

Long live the 'ignore all messages from this user' option, it has been serving me well.

I like the track, especially because it is so out of the ordinary. It pushes you to do things in another way instead of relying on experience. I'm gonna go for a Led Zeppelins When The Levee Breaks vs Debussys Sir

Please stop the negative feedback. We are about to ruin one of the greatest things on the internet.

The purpose of the IMPs is to learn new things and this song will push you really hard in that direction and try things you dont do very often.

Ator I love your zeppelin and debussy approach, thats the spirit.

J Hall please ignore those who doesnt aprreciate your efforts and dedication.
I will make my efforts to make this mix beautiful even for those who doesnt like it. I wonder what special purpose this IMP has.

what is distorted?  this session is so old i can't recall much of it.


The lead vocal distorts in a number of places, unless I'm just hearing things.  I haven't listened to the female vox enough to see if those do though.  

Anyway it's an unorthodox song, I always thought these were more fun to mix really.

I agree. These IMPs are great. I don't know that any of the IMPs I've done have particularly inspired me, as far as the song choice or recording and that's great. I mainly mix stuff I've tracked and so it's always great to work with other people's tracks and the ways they approach things. Always a challenge not getting any direction from the 'client' too.

Personally I love variety in what I do. I'd get so bored if it all sounded the same. One week I'm doing folk, then a jazz trio, the next hard rock etc. It keeps things interesting and makes me a better engineer. If you can only mix when the parameters are the way you like them it doesn't make you much of an engineer in my opinion.

I'm sure an exception to the rule could be made for that......

I'm done.

Funny how distortion never held back those pesky Motown classics.

I would like to say sorry for those who i called freaks there.
I was in a too bad mood and quite dissapointed in mastering threads at that point.

I think people are confusing the vocal 'distortion' with heavy compression.....

fwiw i dig the song.  kind of an 'explosions in the sky' vibe, except with vox.

No, it's certainly distortion.  And it's only really distracting (for me) in the first few lyrics.

Can I ask what kind of rooms these were recorded in?
