Oh shit it's already time again! What in the-

It's been six months since the last one was announced, so technically we'd start the next one now. I'd say a month (Sept 25th) for a deadline to start, lets see if we can make it this time :p

I'm not gonna c/p the info this time, everyone should know the rules by now. Submit a song, easy.

Anyone wanna take over putting this thing together? If anyone else wants to this time.

I'm still kinda burnt out, actually....in the last 3 months I've recorded 2 EPs (well, probably one solid album's worth of content between the two, anyway) and a full-length album, so I'm kinda taking a break for the time being. But who knows? In a month's time, I might be able to come up with something :cool: But I'm in no hurry, so I won't be as super-disappointed with the 24560982346 delays we wind up with :D

Ryder1234
08-25-2011, 07:44 PM
Haha yeah, I'm not really looking at it as a deadline, it's more of like... an encouragement :p It'd be nice if we could get it out quicker this time, but delays won't matter much.

I'll probably submit one of my electronic songs this time. My band no longer has access to the halfway decent recording equipment we used, so that idea's already out of the window, and I have plenty of unfinished songs from writing my last electronic album, so hey.

Ryder1234

This should probably be bumped, I don't think anyone really noticed it.

Is this gonna be one of those things where people only participate cause they want feedback on their own tracks, or is it gonna be more about making a kick-ass mixtape?

Homer
09-23-2011, 01:44 AM
I don't follow.

mrconeman
09-23-2011, 04:17 AM
Is this gonna be one of those things where people only participate cause they want feedback on their own tracks, or is it gonna be more about making a kick-ass mixtape?

They go hand in hand, of course. People contribute because they want people to hear their awesome music, but what the fuck is the point if nobody tells them what they thought?

I mean, it doesn't bother me as much as some people, but it is kind of shitty to not review it, if you're one of the contributors. If nothing else, great reviews, let people know that it's a "kick ass mixtape", and without that, nobody but the contributors will ever hear it.

edit: I'll probably sit this mixtape out, as I've just gotten my little home studio set going, and haven't gotten to grips with it just yet, I've a bunch of material written, I just need to learn how to record it. I'll hopefully make the next one.

I might not submit an original this time. Still thinking about it, but time will tell.

mrconeman
09-25-2011, 04:05 PM
I may have been completely lying when I said I wouldn't contribute, because I thought it was going to take me a lot longer to come up with anything..

But a friend of mine called over yesterday, and we wrote a bit of a reggae track, we recorded our parts yesterday, and I pretty much worked on the drums and production for the last oh....18 hours....I think it's probably ready.

edit: In saying that though, what I learned is I suck terribly at programming drums, still. However the production isn't so bad, so this could go either way.,

I would've had something new for this, but I broke a bass string before I finished it and haven't had money to replace it yet. Fortunately I have some newish songs that no ones really heard to choose from. I'll send a couple songs in today sometime Randy.

You can consider me submitted, I haven't been able to record lately because my bass has a broken string, but I have songs that are done that I can submit. I'm just holding off until we get a bit closer to release in case I can get some new strings and finish up the song I was working on by then. If not, I'll just send in something that's done when we're ready for release.

Well, I had originally planned to submit, but then I got sick and I've been out of work for almost 2 weeks, and on top of that I can't afford to get my car fixed, so on the days I was working, I was stuck at work waiting on a ride for 2-3 hours every day, so by the time I got home I really didn't have much time to record (or do anything else but the bare essentials)....I'm still not exactly sure what the deadline is, but I'm gonna try to pull something together if I have time. I may or may not make it if the deadline is soon, though. I already have part of a track recorded for another project that I ended up not finishing, so I may just use that.

Homer
12-21-2011, 02:24 PM
The deadline is whenever I feel like I've got enough submissions to release it.

mrconeman
12-21-2011, 03:36 PM
Yeah, that sounds about right in this case.

T-6005
12-26-2011, 12:13 PM
I don't know, I like the fact that we still do this, even though it's at a reduced pace. I'm still incredibly busy, but I love to write and record music. As someone who doesn't perform - or even release - his music publicly, it's nice to know that somewhere, someone has listened to it and taken the time to give feedback. And since I don't know other people's situations, I like the fact that they still participate in the same mixtape I do, and that I can give their music at least that much attention.

ThunderPX
01-14-2012, 08:03 PM
I just remembered this is still going on. I will be sending *something* in tomorrow, as despite a lot of problems I've had getting this done, I feel obligated to enter something since I did promise to.

mrconeman

I actually can't remember which of the songs I've recorded recently that I submitted, so I guess I'm in for a surprise.

I'm working on my next song. If this isn't out by that point, I'll just submit it as well.

Static_Martyr
01-23-2012, 02:17 PM
I do ultimately plan to submit something if I end up having time....stuff keeps coming up and I end up not having time or resources to dedicate to recording. I may just submit an older (but favorite) song that I don't think a lot of people have heard.

ThunderPX
01-23-2012, 02:29 PM

UP up up up up where'd the mixtape go?

So seeing as the mixtape finally just arrived home from it's trip around the world, we should all get it done, maybe. It seems like a good idea. I can't remember when the last one came out :p

Like I said when this thread was alive, I'm basically submitted, but I STILL haven't gotten new bass strings since then and haven't recorded all too much. I have songs I'd like to finish, but if I just don't get them done due to my bass I'll upload an older-newish song. Lately I've just been like "fuck it" though and have been recording bass with 3 strings, so I may just do that and finish my song up. I started on a punk song yesterday anyways, so that shouldn't be hard to work around with 3 strings.

mrconeman
05-18-2012, 11:16 AM

I'm actually working on a lengthy new album project at the moment, so maybe I can squeeze one in here? I'm starting my next batch of 5 this weekend (once I get a portable drive, so I can clear off some space on my main drive for recording.....I tend to keep all my component files after I'm done with them, and so each song has an average of 200-300MB worth of component files....combine that with around 250 songs scattered over my legion of drives, and any given one of them is quite smack full at the moment~).

I already know which song it will be, too~ If we're still doing this mixtape thing in a week or so, then I'll try to have it up by then.

OK then I tells ya what, I will submit one I already finished, just in case....but if I finish another one before Sunday, I will submit that one and you can use it instead. Because the one I'm sending now is on the EP I just released, so it's no real surprise anymore....

Send it.

It's not getting up today, because I only have two submissions. The deadline is now May 27. I'll probably only give this a week, because I don't wanna wait forever... let's just say, whatever I have by May 27th will be the mixtape - I'll upload it how it is, even if it's only 3 songs.

05-20-2012, 06:03 AM
I know it's not really of the norm to say who's gonna be on the tape before it's released, but I'm hoping that by putting your names out there, it'll create a bit more pressure to send ;) So here's a list of who we should expect:

Sent:
Mike (cokeaholic)
Tim (static martyr)

Shown interest in contributing:
allin all its not so bad
Kevin (ryder)
Thibault (t-6005)
Ciaran (coneman)

Some people who seem to have sent Homer songs, but haven't posted since the update:

Feel free to send me two songs, if you're so inclined. :)

If anyone wants me to master their songs (which I was going to do for the Mixtape), then just give me the go ahead and I'll get a master done and send it over to llamas. If you haven't sent it to me initially, then you'll obviously have to send it over.

That's cool of ya - I'll send over the tunes people have sent me so far so you can master them if you have time before Sunday. :) And I got your submissions - thanks!!

Edit: I'm listening to the submissions right now, and holy shit, guys. This might be the best Mixtape ever, if a bit short (*I redact that. A few of you sent more than one track, I threw on an oldish track I did with Lost a few years ago (though many of you have heard it, but that's okay), and one more person should be submitting... that'll bring us to 12 tracks total :)). I'm glad to be putting it together, because since I can't write and submit a new track, it's great to be involved in the creation of this thing :)

Edit 2: It's SO DIVERSE! I love it!! I remember the first couple Mixtapes mostly being just straight-up punk... this one's got so much going on! I'm not gonna give anything away yet, but let's just say that this one's a true "mix"! :)

mrconeman
05-25-2012, 07:24 AM
Homer how exactly are you going to master the tracks without having each separate instrument/audio stem? Just wondering. I master my own tracks, and to get anywhere decent quality from doing it, I need to be EQ'ing every single sound on the track separately, mixing them separately, and then mastering them. I'm not saying I'm any good at doing this, but if I don't do it that way it doesn't sound too good.

Your tracks generally have a better quality than most (including mine) so I'm not saying you can't do it, I'm genuinely wondering.

Llamas : Sounds awesome :)

Homer
05-25-2012, 01:56 PM
Mastering is just essentially fixing up the final product. What you're suggesting is altering the EQ at the mixing stage. What I usually do is add a limiter/compressor to the final mix and adjust the EQ accordingly.

I'll admit though, mastering a 128kbps mp3 file isn't exactly professional, but it's worked for the past two mixtapes.

T-6005
05-26-2012, 11:54 AM
Hey, Homer - do you still have the files I sent you for this mixtape? If you do, would you mind just sending them over to llamas?

If you don't, well hey, it's been a while, so I can just send in my files again tonight to llamas.

Okay everyone, this is going up today. I keep deadlines, so if I don't have your submission within the next... 10 hours (that's midnight my time, so I think that's a pretty fair deadline :P), I'm posting it with what I have. So Thibault and Thunder, hopefully Homer sends your songs to me in the next 10 hours - or you can send them to me yourselves. And Homer, did you get any mastering done? Can you send those to me?

I think it's gonna be a good one! :)

Question: Does anyone care if given the option of it being released today unmastered, and it being released probably next weekend mastered? I've got pretty much everything ready to go - everything is tagged, song order (minus finding spots for the three I'm waiting on), lyrics file, etc... I'm sure the sound will be somewhat better if we wait, but Homer didn't have time to master, and I won't have time again probably until next weekend if I don't do it tonight. Thoughts?

ThunderPX
05-27-2012, 01:24 PM
I think the mixtape will sound a bit more consistent if everything's all nice and mastered. I know one of my submissions is a bit on the soft side as far as volume goes.

AllIn All It's Not So Bad
05-27-2012, 01:49 PM
Can you guys not master my submission unless it absolutely needs to be? I've already applied compression and something tells me that compression on top compression won't sound too good. Not to mention its nearly impossible to eq everything individually in an mp3 file

There seems to be more support on the side of putting it up tonight, so as soon as Ryder sends his song(s) over, it's going up. As long as he doesn't wait til after I go to bed ;)

It would almost definitely sound better if the songs were mastered (some are much quieter overall than others), but it's been such a long wait that I say we just get it over and done with. If there's a next time, then that'll be the time to make everything perfect. :)

Mine are in, I hope I got them to you in time :p I might see if I can try mastering some of the songs once it's released and if anyone wants them I could upload them after or something.
