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.
