Ermin Hamidovic of Systematic Productions has agreed to judge our next Mixoff contest, and to provide a copy of his excellent new eBook, "The Systematic Mixing Guide" as the prize!
This song is a heavy rock song with loads of production, there are plenty of opportunities for creative moves, automation, effects, etc, so go nuts! There are 59 tracks total, many are synth bits, etc, so be sure to listen to them and make good decisions!
The tracks can be downloaded here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/721667/TheOneTracks.zip
The rules are as usual; 2 weeks from today, May 7th to submit your mixes. Ermin will give notes on your first mix, feel free to make tweaks and submit a 2nd mix, but you won't get notes on that one.
Loudness of the mix isn't a factor, so don't go crazy trying to 'master' the track, but present it as you would to a client.
Please make your mixes downloadable, if you use Soundcloud, be sure to select the option that lets users download the track. You can submit MP3s, but keep your bit rate high enough to avoid artifacts (192k is probably the minimum you'd want.)
Be sure to check out Ermin's site, and read about his book here: http://www.systematicproductions.com/mixing-guide.htm
