K.H.E where were you a few months ago?! :P ahah. Those drums sound incredible! What're you doing in terms of samples and reverb?

And the winner is.......Jeff Estrada at Ascend Recordings! Really enjoyed his mixes and the consistency was great throughout.

Thanks to everyone who entered! I'll definitely be doing more.

I've added two more tracks to the forums. One to the pop one and one to the modern rock one. Go check them out! Cheers!

Following on from your conversation and just as a tip to people who haven't started yet, what about putting all the stems in the same project? Obviously each song will have unique tracks, but the drums, bass, guitars and lead vocals were all record together so they'll have the exact same levels etc.

Nice work guys! I'm hearing some really cool things! Make sure you let me know if it's a proper submission or not though!

I'll post more stuff like this in future if everyone's keen? I've got a ton of EPs like this on my hard drive still.

TonyPizza - That's a real sweet mix! Love the accuracy of the drums. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

sedit1 - As I mentioned, unfortunately the band has actually split up and are no longer releasing music, therefore there are no actually plans to release the winning mixes. I've actually struggled to think of a decent prize haha. I figured the best incentive is as you said - giving people the opportunity to do something like this.

Mixoff Contests / Actions EP Contest - Pop Punk/Rock (3 Tracks)
« on: May 22, 2012, 12:43:41 AM »
Actions were based in the South of England and unfortunately spilt up earlier this year. I had the joy of recording 3 tracks with them last October and I've decided to put them up on here as it was a very consistant recording session, however each track has its differences - so it won't be a simple copy and paste mix!

Here's their last single: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMBCQcKAxuY

I will be judging the mixes on these 3 points:

Overall Quality of the mix/master.
Mix Consistency - They all need to sound like they've come from the same CD.
Creative Input - Any quirky effects or extra parts you choose to put in.


Here are the multitracks https://dl.dropbox.com/u/5106911/MixOff%20Sessions/Actions%20EP%20Multitracks.zip

There are 3 tracks in there. Devil's Words, South Of The Water and One Minute Smile. All the tempos are included in the folders.

A few things to look out for:

- You will most likely be sample replacing all the drums. The kick drum was recorded with a trigger, however the rest of the kit was mic'ed up so the option is yours.

- These are commercial songs, so loudness is of key importance. These tracks need to blend into any radio playlist etc.

- The vocals are already compressed and tuned.

- No rough mixes. I want the finished full product.

Other than that, just have fun mixing them! The winner will be announced a month from now on the 22nd of June.
