I would suggest you pre-mix it to an ideal level (e.g. to levels that would normally be used for OCR submissions). The album and WAVs are quite old at this point, and the people involved are honestly not easy to collectively get a hold of / files have been lost over time, so it would be pretty crazy for me to try to get a set of WAVs with headroom that don't already have it.

Thanks for asking, though! Also, I'm DEFINITELY looking forward to your WAV submissions. :)

Alright, I admit I've been distracted for the past few weeks working on other OCR staff projects behind the scenes, so I've neglected to properly follow up on the last WIP update. I see the next one has passed, so because this was on the head of the directors I'm pushing the last two dates back by three weeks. It won't happen again, folks, so be thankful for the breathing room. I am literally not allowed to delay this project again (it will likely simply be cancelled if it's on delay again), so please take these dates seriously even if I'm slow on updating the thread.

@Moseph and @Ivan Hakštok need to get in touch with me - I would like to coordinate with you two about your tracks, since they're quite important. I also gotta bug DjP 'bout his track in a bit, but that's just project tradition. I also have to get my tracks finished, because... well, yeah. ;)

Hey I opened Ableton and... thought about the arrangement, for at least ten minutes :) It's something! The easiest, fastest, and most fun approach is to turn my relatively sad/somber source into, well.... something funky, and even a little disco.

Sorry for being so absent, I'll definitely have my song done before the next weekend (26th).

No worries! To be honest, it's the directors' responsibility to get into contact with y'all, as well. We just gotta give a bump and a nudge to people to keep em' on their toes.

Thanks for the heads up!

Do you have specific things in mind regarding coordination? As far as mix progress goes, The Earth is basically done and I'm finishing up on Last Decisive Battle, which will hopefully be done within a week or so. I can send you current WIPS for both if you want.

Mostly just needed to touch base; we haven't had the opportunity since the project revved up again. If you could send me what you got on May 31st, that'd be good enough.

(y'all watch out, his tracks ARE really cool!)

Will do. I'll try to have finalized versions for both by then.

Aight I got like a minute of something that resembles retrowave, and I'm gonna stick with it, cheese guitar solo & all ::)

It's not retrowave if it doesn't have the cheese! And if you need vocoders for it, you know where to find me ;)

My tracks are both done, and I'm either never doing symphonic metal ever again, or I'm never doing anything but symphonic metal ever again. It's too early to tell which.

Y'know, I don't think anyone would complain if you did symphonic metal forever.

Or is it Operatic metal?

Either way, at least I wouldn't complain. :)

 

Quick reminder of the few people this impacts: Semi-final deadline is today. We have three weeks to get our stuff in order, so let's push this thing through!

lol, you're good; I count your last submission for this due date. No rush.

... TBH, I think I'm the only one in trouble on this due date, so... git on it, Gario!

Is there supplemental material that we should submit? Track comments, artist bios, etc?

Track comments would be solid, the permission form so that we know we can use your music for the album will also be necessary (which I need to go through the forms we already have). Otherwise, I'll need to talk to DjP after the project finishes up to see if there's anything else that we need from the artist.

@Gario Yeah that's basically it - we only do artist bios if the album website decides to feature them, which is less common these days. Track comments ALWAYS good.

BTW I've got 1'30" on my mix and do hope to finish it shortly!
