So here's my attempt. Really not a fan of the snare or kick but I'm not so good with drum replacement so I did what I could. https://soundcloud.com/brad-ezard/u...paper-worm-mix1

Cool, a mixoff! I'll give it a go when I can find the time.

Were the "Dry" guitar tracks meant to be DIs, or just the amp without a cab? Cause DIs would've been great, I wanted to try reamping this through my Kemper

The right and left guitars are recorded at different volumes which makes it very hard to balance them both, if you don't want to compress the crap out of them and keep some dynamics. Also - The right overhead track is a stereo track instead of a mono track, and it's way louder than the left track (or at least the right crash is way louder than the left)?

There's also backing vocals in the middle of the lead guitar track


Do really like the bass in this though, sounds bitchin!

Nope, they're a direct out from the back of the guitar head.

I think the right overhead is actually the stereo overhead, so I strongly recommend splitting it into two mono files and ditching the left hand side, or else just importing it and ignoring the L Overhead completely. Don't know how that one slipped past.

I don't see the big deal about the L and R guitars - just trim the gain on them? I didn't need to compress them much at all in my mix.

Yeah, for something which had so much enthusiasm for the idea this hasn't really kicked off has it?

True. My fault for providing a shitty song, probably.

I think bi-weekly (or fortnightly, as we sensible Brits say) is too short for something as deep an involved as mixing, especially when most of us have real clients and/or jobs to be working on in the meantime. A month makes more sense.

I don't think it's a shitty song as such, but it might have been the wrong one to kick off the mixoff with. There's a fair few beginners around (e.g. me) who would have found the loose timing a little tricky. Also considering the drums were just rendered Superior tracks it would have been nice if we'd had access to the MIDI. But oh well, maybe if we keep on running them it will catch on a bit.
I think bi-weekly (or fortnightly) is fine tbh, but maybe we might get more people if we give them more time to do it. I guess seeing as it appears that lockwolf is running this then we'll see what he thinks.

I'll second the monthly idea.

I downloaded the tracks, but was finishing up some other mixes for someone who recorded last week that "provided me with some challenges." haha

If you have a stereo file where one side is louder than the other, you can load it up into an editor (you might have to do it in a separate project) and then export it as separate right and left channels.

I don't really think timing quantization, MIDI drum samples etc are the mix engineer's job though, in honesty.

In the world of the one man hobby recordist/studio it doesn't matter who's job it is. You're doing everything xD

It's not so bad in this song though, as all the tracks have at least a semblance of timing with each other. Your just not gonna get a polished MUSE or Foo's level of production on it because of that.

I think having a week to do the mix is more than enough time. Personally, if I spend too much time on a song, I start second guessing things in the mix. Hell, even at a half-hour a day, 7 days should be close to enough to get a decent mix (I know none of us are Chris Lord-Alge but he's done 3 hours professional mixes). If you allow too much time, like 2 weeks instead of one, I have the feeling we'll get more "Oh yeah, I'll do that" posts then see "Oh shit, that was due today?" shortly after the deadline. Plus, a week gives it that real world turnaround time to it. Yes, I understand that none of us do this full time & whatnot but once you get in the flow and know what to do with your mixes, a week should be no problem.

Once I decide the next mixoff, I'll run that one for a week as well and see how it goes. I think since this one is the first & people are starting to notice it, the second should be bigger.

Hooray.

Dunno what timing issues and what not people are going on about. This was a pretty simple song to mix. The quality of the raw tracks was decent enough that no major doctoring had to be done to anything.

I think there's a third tom track missing, btw.

I just did a session with a really mediocre band that would be a great challenge. A real "how well can I polish this turd" kind of mix off. Let me know if you want raws.

Cool idea, ITT.

It's been another week and this has made it to the lower part of the second page. I'm guessing that means it's dead? that's a shame.
