    Simon threw down the gauntlet on this one....man, what a wonderful job he did mixing and mastering the track. Give my original a listen, and then listen to what a real master of sound can do - outstanding job Simon. The bar is officially set really high. Good luck to everyone and a huge thanks to Simon for kicking this off in grand style. Wow!

    I'm going to give this a go listening to the laden with errors version as I type. Will certainly be fun and hopefully will fire me up to try some new things with my own work. Great idea and an immense challenge :)

    Nice idea! I'm down for this!

    One thing: do we just upload our mixed and mastered version to any audio hosting site and send you the link? Or do we post on Looperman itself?

    : In response to my previous question.

    I just went through some of the entries and have found my answer. I need to read the comments before stupid sometimes.

    Hey iv'e done a little re-edit, Iv'e changed the Intro section added this and that, kept the Middle section suttle and for the last section iv'e tried to keep powerful to help the track have a big finish, It's not complete and i do need to spend more time on the track and mess with this and that but here it is so far...

    WongKi, what a great mix! And Fixxxer, you rose to the challenge as well. It really is fun to listen to the different approaches taken on this one. I think each one shows just how important the mix and master is in this process. Well done gents, really well done.

    Marvellic, just upload your finished track to your profile here on Looperman, and then post a link to it in this thread. Thanks for jumping in the pool!

    Nightfall, I'm off to give your track a listen. Thanks for jumping in as well.

    Nightfall, you did a really nice remix on this track, unfortunately this competition is a mixing and mastering comp only. Don't get me wrong, I loved what you did and was really impressed with your work, however it isn't within the confines of the rules. Each person must use the stems as they are. You can't alter the order in which they appear (so no strings in the intro for example - or no using a different kind of percussion).

    What you can do is use all of the effects we commonly find in the production studio (panning, compression, delay, EQ, pitch, timing alignment, etc.). Again, I really enjoyed your remix, but it just won't work for this competition. I do think you have the skills to do a great mix and master on the original track and hope you will post an entry.

    The zip is here, so letz see how i can ruin the track :)

    I am in

    @shortbusmusic I'm glad you like the re-edit and that's just what it is, i have not entered into the comp and in all honestly i should of pm'd you to let you know about it (my mistake) it's described as a re-edit and there is no mention of me including myself in the comp. I need to add your copyright info into the description ect... but as i wasnt finished i thought i'd give ya taster of how it's getting on. when iv'e complete the remix i'll pm you or if you would like to pm me with your email, i have no problems sending you the track that way?

    All the best

    ps i may have some vocals for it soon, i'm talking to an artist i work with on a reg base and they up for putting something down on it so watch this space for your instrumental :)

    Hey Nightfall, no problems my friend. I was really impressed with the work you do on the remix, and I look forward to your completed version. It is quality work for sure. I will send you a PM with my email.

    Dakore has thrown his hat in the ring and is joining the competition. He's a new member of Looperman - welcome to the Loop by the way - and cannot post in the forums just yet, so I am posting the link for him. Give his version a listen and let him know how he did. I think you will find an outstanding result when you do.

    Joe, very nice job on this. And it is a bit different approach to the mix (which instruments to feature in various spots). Well thought out and executed quite well. The competition is on!

    Interesting challenge Barry .... I've been away a great time here, because a lot of upheaval in my daily life, but it is always with great pleasure that I found your musical ideas. I downloaded the different tracks of this concept .... and I'll try to respond positively to this proposal ....

    It is a true challenge ....

    joecramer : Fri 5th Sep 2014 : 5 years ago

    So, now i did it.

    I think this is realy the version that i would offer a friend. So this is the version that i offer YOU.

    It is the minimalst version that i could do. All instruments are in the mix and on the place - but not often all at once.

    You find Joes MINMAL Master PROXIMAL VICINITY Mix right there:

    The version that i have done befor is not bad but i go with THIS into the comp

    Hello Bear, Good to see a new comp, focused on the mix and master side of the music. I am not new here though I am one of those that needed to take this course. Still have much to learn and habits to stay clear from within music. I had a try and slowly making its way. Been listening to the other mixes of this track and they sound really good, clear and separated. Found that my levels are crowed and heavy. Could use some directional perceptions as to what I am doing wrong with the mix. Possibly trained my ears in the wrong field of focus for a bit too long.

    Here's my entry: https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/159816

    Thank you for sharing the opportunity. Hope more find time to get involved. The running time for the comp should be sufficient I believe. Peace.

    Dan, it is great to see you back and I look forward to you participating in this little challenge. Designed, it is good to have some of the old guard participate in this....show the newer/younger guys how to do it :) I'm off to give your entry a listen.

    Hola Loopers, first and foremost, I'd like to thank Bear for this incredible competition, this was definitely work ( Bear, you're making me sweat, lol).

    Also, this is a magnificent composition, just blew my mind away.

    Here's my entry: https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/159902

    I hope I did justice to this, lol.

    Pete, it is great to have you jump in on this one, and rise to the occasion like the true pro that you are. This is definitely one of the top to date. Thanks for doing such a great job! You definitely did it justice.

    okay I mixed this song, but I had some problems with the way the track was bounced out of what ever they were using to make the track in.. First, to much compression. second I was not able to put any of my reverb on it cuz most of the tracks had to much reverb on it to begin with, and you shouldn't compress after the reverb on a single track.. I can go on but I'll start with that..
