MY FIRST MIXES (omgsobad)


Recommended Posts

I just found these lying around on my hard drive. These are some of my earliest mixes.

They suck BADLY. So I thought I'd share them for lulz, and perhaps to encourage n00bs by demonstrating that it's ok if they suck, because we all sucked when we started (except for assholes like sixto and CPac)

http://www.geoffreytaucer.com/wips/sonicice.mp3 (yes, it's icecap zone)

http://www.geoffreytaucer.com/wips/zeal.mp3 (yes, it's corridors of time)

EDIT: Another of my earlier ones, courtesy of skrypnyk:

Funny, these don't really suck. Not your usual stuff that we're used to, but un-sucktastic.

Edit: Okay, Corrodors of Time wasn't so good. That first one wasn't bad though, and the third one isn't beyond repair if you wanted to revamp the old stuff down the line.

My question to you is: what prior experience did you have when you made these?

I'd been sequencing midis in NoteWorthy composer for a year or two before these; these were all made with modplug tracker.

I mean obviously they're not great but there are worse things that come up in the WIP forum... I'm not sure you've quite achieved your goal, lol.

:(

This sounds like a DarkeSword song.

ROFL

The other two are bad because of cheezy samples. Also where's the acoustic guitar??

This was before I learned to play guitar.

Come to think of it, my initial post wasn't quite accurate: I think these are actually my second, third, and fourth attempts at remixing. I still haven't been able to find my first (which got direct-rejected, and never made it to the judges panel)

I think Keyboard Cat needs to play the ice cap mix off :nicework:

Thanks for sharing, this was fun. Also, I wouldn't feel too bad... at least you don't have anything like this on the site. I have to live with the pain of my Contra and SingingPretzel mixes for eternity - omgsobad, indeed.

Rofl. I will agree with SoulinEther though, some of those still sound better than what you get here sometimes and that doesn't really make for a good example but everyone has to start somewhere. I didn't use compressors or anything during my nub years so everything was upfront and clipping like a pair of hungry scissors and I'd rather not go back to that time xD.

This made me laugh...hehe.

Geoff...this stuff isn't that bad, it isn't that great either though. :D

Ur recent remix with mephisto = great stuff.

I was enjoying that Corridor of Time remix before the French Horn sample started playing. The sensation was like enjoying a piece of pie but then realizing moments later that it was rotten right before you vomited.

Also, were you remixing Day of Summer in the Ice Cap zone remix? Cause parts of it definitely sounded like Day of Summer

Yes, there was some Radical Dreamers in there.

JJT: lemme see if I can dig up some of my old midi remixes.
