IMP14 discussion
« on: August 18, 2007, 11:10:42 am »

it's up on the server.

this one will be different only by deadline.

normally i pull the tune down and test the rar before letting anyone at it.

i'm not doing that this time as people have requested to start NOW, and i'm happy to oblige.

the deadline is one week from  Monday.

that means mixes are do on August 27th.

sample rate is 44.1

These are great tracks and I'm ready to sink my teeth in this one.

I do wonder why the leadvocaltrack is combined with (sometimes out of tune) doubles. Is it possible to get the leadvocal and doubles  alone on a separate tracks?

If you're talking about the chorus vox, no.  That's stacks of 3 guys around an omni mic.  If you're talking about the rest of the vox, no, because we cut vocals for this track with both guys singing in the same room and there's some bleed.

You damn near gave me a heart attack!  I thought I was going to have to go in and re-consolidate some things!

No sweat, I thought (hoped) you might have accidentally bounced some tracks together. Separate vocals would give more room to work. But hey, no more complaining here, it all sounds great!

...so i dont know who this band is...but within the first 28 seconds of the track...with just all the faders at 0...i had my fist pumping in the air! this is truly going to be a pleasure to mix. it sounds like an 80's ballad band (insert band here) and a modern rock band (insert band here) had a love child...i love it! the hooks great. and that kick..WTF is that! when i first heard it i felt like someone was kicking my heart through my skull..it was GREAT. i can say im not a huge fan of the included samples...never was a fan of them. well now were off to the mix....this is by far my favorite imp yet...GO J!

Dudes. I'm finished. I'm stoked. This is JUST what the doctor ordered for me. What a killer track. I'm not really a fan of this type of music (my 13 year old said "Fall Out Boy"). That's kinda what I thought at first. It's not like that at all. I love it. I hate the samples man. Sorry. I did use them to add some click on the kick and some hair on the snare but that's it. I tried very hard to use only the OH. SERIOUSLY. When I couldn't do that I tried to make the other sounds compliment that. ICombs man... what a great job you did on this stuff. There were some vocal things (ie the harsh sounding gang vocal at the end) blah, blah, blah. It rocks man. Kudos.

In the wise words of J. Hall... my mix ROOOOOCCKKKS. You nerds better bring it.  Very Happy

I am so stoked that you posted this today, so I could actually participate in this one.  I've just been hella busy lately, and had to pass on 13, but I do have some time this weekend.  Had you waited till Monday, I probably would have had to skip this one too.

Yeah, good track!  It's not my personal bag, but I'm really quite enjoying it, although at the moment I'm having a hell of a time with the drums.  I think I'm going to have to rip down what I've done so far and start over.  My first instinct just isn't working.

Bollocks. My speakers/mBox/etc still aren't here and the next one's come around.

At least I know they're in Vancouver know and not at the bottom of some ocean somewehere......

Next time I move 1/4 way round the World, I'm taking all my studio stuff with me.

This one sounds even more fun as well......

It doesn't look like I can do this one. I'm booked solid trying to finish two albums for one client. The first day I can do it is next Tuesday.....
