IMP question for you guys
« on: June 28, 2010, 03:20:44 pm »

is there anything specific you guys would like to see happen with the IMPs?

recently they have all been "rock" songs.  is that still ok?

seriously, let me know what you're thinking.  not saying i can do anything, but i'd certainly like to see how i might be able to better serve you guys with the IMPs

I'll take whatever, honestly.  

What I'd like to request instead of a genre is more in-depth knowledge transfer.  I know we're all busy people, but if one or two of the mixers whose work seems to rise to the top could explain, in detail, some of the outstanding elements of their mix, I think I'd enjoy IMP more - and get more out of it.

I'm in the middle of a pop-punk-electronica mix project (and that is WAY outside my comfort zone) and I am really starting to second guess myself.  I'd love to learn more, hands-on, and IMPs seem like a place to do it.

Higher track counts.

Stuff with 16-20 tracks is fine, but not really representative of much that's out there in the commercial world (in my experience, obviously everything is context dependent..).

+1.  

Also, I always learn a great deal from salvage jobs.  80 tracks of total crap would be a fun challenge.

I'm working on a couple that I have in mind for future IMP's ... These won't be finished until next month at the earliest:

1. - Female fronted Metal in the vein of Parkland Drive or perhaps Under Oath (screamo)... but the female "growler" is pleasant enough to listen to... Female drummer on this one too!

2. - Male Punk Pop in the vein of All Time Low or Boys Like Girls (commercial grid/tuned pop)... track counts rising daily: 25+ Vocal tracks, 20+ guitar tracks with ear candy and synths yet to be added... prolly exceeding 60-70 tracks when done..

Both very tight (gridded) productions.

Lemme nough


BUT for now anything you have is good with me Smile

I'd like to see higher track counts too. And frankly, I'd like to see higher SR/bit rate files, but I realize that wouldn't be fair to some of the people who enjoy participating but maybe can't work with HD. Maybe a project where both a standard resolution AND a high resolution version is provided? That might be an interesting comparison in and of itself.

I've got HD2 myself, and I hate working at anything higher than 48k.  The system just "lags".  I do notice a minor difference in overall sonic character when working at 88.2 though, I have to say.  Sucks that it's a pain to work at that sample rate.

I agree however, that it would be an interesting comparison of those who mix at the lower sample rate, compared to those who mixed at the higher sample rate.  Although, the whole purpose of IMP is to remove variables and everybody mix the same tracks.  I'm on the fence on that one.

I know it may not be popular, but why not something more electronic? Or on the other hand some jazz/swing? Even free jazz? It may not be exactly alternative rock music, but it's worth getting to know how to deal with it at mix time.

Rock is Fine
Higher track counts OK as I think I'll do it Digital with HDSP Madiface into a  Digico SD8.. Kinda Live gig setup but sounds really good.
