6. Well, at least it's less suckier than before

Pretty much me, every damn time.

Subbed.

For me, I always attempt something extremely ambitious then achieve less than half of it. Glad to see lots of people excited about their own mixes. Can't say the same about mine. Oh well. Without the help of my teammates, it would've been a lot worse. Looking forward to hearing what everyone else did.

Subbed. As always I ended up rushing the mix but oh well. At least I can say it's interesting? Could use more polish though haha.

 

Source usage may feel a bit strange since the song is in 6/8 but I hope you guys can follow where I used the sources... Intro is a variation on the bass riff from Final Weapon btw. It's the same notes in a different rhytm.

I did the exact opposite, I used the (slightly changed) rhythm with a modified bass progression from my theme.

I'll be working on this week's Maverick Astley track... Not sure yet what to do with the source track, might be a bit tricky because it's not very melodic but mostly atmospheric :)

I'm glad I went last round haha. This source seems very tricky.

You do miss the chance to show your Killer Studio Chops tho :P

 

Usually I prefer the more retro sounds of the (S)NES, Mega Drive and so on to work with, guess I'm old ;) I think I'll manage... I'll let it simmer in the back of my head for a day or so, usually something comes out.

New voting procedure starting this round!

 

Voters, post your top three remixes in this thread as follows.

  • Your Team Name (if you have one)

Team name on the fifth line is new. If you don't have a team, don't include a fifth line.

 

Copy your team name from the first post in the voting thread so that capitalization is consistent.

So my process for this mix this round was 

1) Write riff
2) What even is genre
3) Welp guess I'll put them next to each other
4) Everything I learned in highschool was a waste of time
5) Is the time signature 4/4?
6) If yes, add or subtract a beat
7) Repeat 6 until satisfactory
8-) Cry at your wasted childhood 
9) submit

liek if u crie everytiem

1 like = 1 bar of 7/8

EDIT: I feel like the face is mocking my wasted childhood. I can't blame it.

I could join an 8pm ET listening party for a little while. That sounds good.

Unrelated, Jason, how did you do the choir in your song? Did you, or someone, sing and record that or is there some crazy choir sample library out there? Was that Latin?
