Servant and Re-Mastermix project final


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


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)


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.



New remix project (part IV)


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.



New remix project (part III)


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.



New remix project (part II)


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.

Remixing State of Mind

As long as I can remember, I have made my own mix and remix of the music that I love. It all started with two cassette decks back in the 80’s, all inspired by my classmate Lars and his cut-mix of Renegades of Funk by Afrika Bambaataa & Soulsonic Force, that he did on his parents brand new Philips D8644 Ghettoblaster – The one with the wooden speakers.

My first cut-mix was a track from the Street Sounds Electro 1 record – or something like that – but I don’t remember the title of the track anymore. Later, I did cut-mix of Paul Hardcastle19, FreeezI.O.U, BaltimoraTarzan Boy, Captain Rock – Cosmic Blast and a lot of other artists, all songs I loved back then. In essence I used the parts that I liked – extended them and switched the playing order – and left out parts that I didn’t like. Everything was played of one cassette deck and was recorded onto the other. All the cut-mix was one artist only.

Later my good old friend Peter A and I, made a few mix using two home stereo turntables and a lousy 4 channel mixer – that worked – most of the times. We only did one successful live mix on the turntables and the only one that were recorded onto audio cassette. It was a Hip Hop mix that included artists like Beastie Boys, Run-DMC, Mantronix, LL Cool J, Doug E Fresh and more.


Most of the old mix/remix I’ve posted, was created with Sonic Foundry Acid Pro. Before using Acid Pro, we used SAW (Software Audio Workshop), possible SAWStudio but I’m not sure. SAW is much like Acid Pro, in the way you arrange your samples. SAW is designed and developed by Bob Lentini, RML Labs, and is still available for purchase on the webside.

Acid Pro was originally created by Sonic Foundry hence the name “Sonic Foundry Acid Pro”, but was later assimilated by Sony Creative Software. The cool thing thou, is that Sony let’s you download a full, 30 day trail copy of Acid Pro. So if you ever are thinking of making a mix/remix, yourself, Acid Pro is the software for you. It’s almost as easy as ‘painting by numbers’.

Today I use Acid Music Studio version 10, and it works perfect, but it is still possible to get Acid Pro.


All samples used, were sliced into smaller bits with Cool Edit Pro. The only other decent sample edit software tool, at that time, was Steinberg WaveLab, but I remember this software was quite impossible to use – I gave up trying to understand it, I think.

Cool Edit Pro was originally created by Syntrillium Software, but at some point, was sold off to Adobe, and is now a Digital Audio Workstation product in the Adobe Systems portfolio. Cool Edit Pro is now Adobe Audiotion.
