Another way!

Status

Currently, I have 25Gb of space at one.com, and I thought that it would be fun to use up all of the space, now that I paying anyway. So, I’ve come up with the idea to replace all the .mp3 files on this site with .wav, files and also to get a better quality.

Who to pick

The battle is between Paul van der Valk (with Hybris) and Ron Klaren (with Battle Squardon), and I thinking of choosing Hybris as the first title to re-export or re-grab, because I won’t deflate the .mp3‘s hence the quality loss.

As I run through all the posts, replacing the files, I’ve decided to only do “one-shot” and also removing jingles and sound effects (most of the files that’s less that 60 seconds).

Stay tuned.

Servant and Re-Mastermix project final

Status

After a brief detour, away from the remix project, it is now done – or as done as I’ll need it to be.

Highlight

As mentioned in a previous post, I only stumbled upon two minor problems:

  • At the end of the ‘Get The Balance Right‘ track, there originally is a percussions part that I haven’t been able to find. At a point I thought that ‘Why’ (Remix), by ‘Bronski Beat‘ had the last part, but that was a dead end. I ended up replacing the percussions part, with a part from ‘Why’, by ‘Bronski Beat
  • Almost at the end of ‘Goodbye 70’s’ there is a echo of ‘Fashion War’ – the last line of the verse. I wasn’t able to reproduce this part in a satisfactory way, so this part has been omitted, unfortunately

Besides the two minor problems, the work with the remix went really smooth. There was of course all the hard work finding the correct parts of ‘Situation’ …

If I was to step back for a moment and look at the remix in detail; the first half of the remix is quite brilliant (cut/fade/overlay) but the last part is a bit dull.
It is as if, someone who really loves the music did the first part but the last part was finished by someone else – in a real hurry. And that is a shame.

Tools used

There has been used only one or two digital effects on the track.

New remix project (part V)

Status

The last Progress update of the Servant and Re-Mastermix project.

The remix is all put together and the sound mix is in Progress. It’s a slow and time consuming process, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

But, don’t worry – there is still two parts. And as always – still in their raw state.

Samples

Enjoy!

New remix project (part IV)

Status

Another update on the Progress of the Servant and Re-Mastermix project.

I never really liked ‘Situation’ by Yazoo, and to work with the song, hour after hour, doesn’t improve that relationship. I don’t think my neighbors likes the song anymore …

But I still have a few new parts ready – still in their raw state.

Samples

Enjoy!

New remix project (part III)

Status

I’ve worked on the mix for a few days now, and are making good progress.

The original track is cut into appropriate pieces, in Adobe Audition, and afterwards put together again in Sony Acid Music Studio 10.0.

I have a few parts ready, and these are posted below.

Samples

Enjoy!

New remix project (part II)

Status

The original Servant and Mastermix consists of 12 songs – divided into 17 parts, beginning at 108 BPM and finishing off at 150 BPM. Luckily, most of the tracks used are album and single tracks and easy to come by.

As work progresses, I’ll post a few before/after bits of the mix, even though the ‘after’ bits aren’t finished yet and is still missing a volume mix and also a finishing touch.

Translation in progress

Status

I’m currently working on translating my old danish retro items from my old site, into posts on this english language site.

Second; I’m having trouble with accepting, how the image-slider are managed and even more annoying how my images are displayed. So this means that for now, all gallery images are left out. So if you bump into the tag ‘IMAGE’, this means that, sometime in the future, there will be added an image or an image-slider in that place.
