    …A gazillion times? I am looking for a song and production to mix. The catch is, a bunch of people are going to do mixes on it besides me.

    If you have a song that you would like mixed, and it’s a killer song, put up a URL to an MP3 so that we can listen to the song. I’m locking the topic after the first 20 submissions, so don’t put it off until tomorrow.

    What I’m looking for is a great song; preferably with real instruments; no more than 3:30 in length or the ability to make it 3:30 simply by fading it and without diminishing the integrity of the song; preferably with a vocalist.

    I don’t care if the mix is lousy, that’s the whole point. I don’t care if the production is confused. I just want to find a great song to mix.

    So put up your URL here.

    not my music (i couldn't write my way out of a paper bag) but one of my best friends stuff that i helped with. check London Town i guess, as it's one of the few that meet the time criteria. not everyone's cup of tea i'm sure, but if nothing else ther's lots of elements to mix/arrange etc, and if someone could make it cool and 'killer', that'd be interesting ;)'s 16 bit PT by the by...

    The song flamescape.
    The only problem is that the drums are MIDI.

    Here's a song that my band is currently working on. The only thing that is missing at this point is background vocals (i'll add them tonight and repost the MP3). If you want rough, this is it - we just finished tracking it tonight. I put this mix together real quick just to get it posted. It clocks in at just over 3:30.

    Let me know if you think it's what you are looking for.

    Here's some tunes for you to remix, if you'd like!

    The first and third songs... (Doin' Nothin' and Angel Child) are both closer to 5 minutes, but they have instrumental parts that could be trimmed down to get the songs to 3:30.
    All the tracks are real instruments, except the drums, which are a full-size, 5-piece electronic kit.

    All the other songs on our page were recorded on a cheapo Korg D8 with crappy cables and such.
    So, if you're looking for a REAL challenge, try one of those songs! :D
    Actually, they're also pretty good tunes... maybe a professional remix might not be a bad idea. They all have real acoustic drums, too.

    Hmmm... see what you think.
    (Make sure to listen to Nothing But Candlelight... it has some great Soprano-sax in it!)

    Superhorse is the band, Don't whisper his name is the song. It's longer than 3:30 but it needs to be edited anyway...

  11. I've got a song, but I have to get it into MP3 form which I'll do tomorrow. Hopefully this can
    be my holding place until then.

    Alright, I'll jump into this hornet's nest. I've got lots of cool stuff from my archives that I'd love to hear other people mix. The only problem, is, everything I have access to is either 2" 24 or 16 trk. If anyone is interested, I'll see what links I can provide, and you can hear what I did with it. I might be able to xfer to ProStools for interested parties, but I'd need funds for shipping and xfer costs. Probobly not prohibitive for the serious mix students out there. Let me know, you mixmasters.

    I've been listening to the songs when I get home at night. I'm not going to say anything until we have 20 to choose from. Then I'll open a thread to discuss what we have as possibilities.

    Nobody should worry about format. We can probably deal wih any of those issues.

    And Mark, what the hell do you think you're doing? Do you really think a placeholder is going to cut the mustard?

    I`ll give it a try, since it is such a great idea: - Crater Lake.mp3
    (copy/paste I`m afraid...)

    I wrote and recorded it at home using Cubase VST 5/32. Most of the instruments except the strings were played by me also. The singer is a friend of mine, she`s just 19. It is a very relaxed and laid back song with real strings, rhodes, guitars, bass guitar machine beats and analog syths. I sped it up by 6 bpm after mixdown using prosoniqs timefactory, which worked fine.
    The vinyl sound you here at the beginning was the rhythmic basis for the song.
    Even if it won`t get mixed, I`d appreciate some feedback, just keep in mind that it is a home production and I`m only 22.

    OK, the band is called Red Sonn Fox. The song is called Deep Diving. It's about 4:20 but the last minute or so could easily be edited down.

    Drums, 2 guitars, bass and 3 vocals - plus a brief 12-string acoustic overdub. We've only done a basic demo so far (does it show??), but I wouldn't need much encouragement to go in and re-track it.

    No, of course not. :p

    I'm hoping that I'll get it together today and have a rough mix of the song posted. I already have a rough mix on cassette that has what I think are the required edits already done. I'd like to post the unedited version of the song so that my edits don't sway anyone if the song happens to get picked. Any way, I should have it up by the end of today.

    Well - what the hell... Everyone else seems to be sending their song up here, might aswell to the same thing.

    The address is:

    The song has some OK points imo but still it fails to build up the exitement towards the end the way I would like it to do. I just gotta try harder.

    Here's the latest band I worked with... Raygun Charlie. The track is called Favorite Son. 15 or 16 tracks in Paris... can export to .wav or .sd2

    You can easily chop it to 3:30.
