    Cool, it looks like this is going to happen real soon. I'm just waiting for word from NL5 on the ftp space.

    This is a tune that I mixed for a friend about a year ago. I was able to get a pretty good mix using the tracks supplied.

    I spoke with the artist and asked if he'd be willing to put the tracks out there with the understanding that the mixers could have a complete open door with regard to the tune - he agreed. So, do whatever you feel is required. You can rescue what's there, you can add tracks, you can delete tracks, you can re-arrange parts, you can re-track parts. Have fun with it!

    I'll be supplying 24 bit, 44.1 tracks - 16 of them. They should be up as soon as I work out the space with NL5

    We can retrack and add tracks and instruments?
    Ah. I was hoping that we all used the provided tracks only. Then it's much easier to hear who did a great job, as the basic material would be the same for everyone.

    Sorry, I was actually "working" in my studio with a real client.

    i agree, we should be able to just manipulate, delete, and mix the tracks, thats it. otherwise, i may end up creating a totally differant song. cant wait to get started...

    Just waiting for the post...

    I am only going to work with what is there, just so you know. That only seems fair, since I wouldn't want someone to add to my stuff (unless it's a collab, then it's all subject to change). I am only doing it for the experience.
    Instead of a Do Not Disturb Sign, I need one that says "Already Disturbed. Proceed With Caution".

    Nothing wrong with that. This is really to allow for "production freedom".

    To repeat what I said in my first post, this isn't really a contest. If someone goes through the trouble of adding new parts, and it makes the song sound better, isn't that a good thing? If you do the best with the supplied tracks, thats great too. It's all about doing your best. The mixes/productions that are good will easily stand out.

    This song is going to need work. It's not going to work just throwing up the faders. There are parts which I believe will never work as they stand. You'll see.

    Just so you know, it's 6 tracks of drums, lot's of guitar tracks, acoustic guitar , bass, and two vocal tracks. It's not all golden either. I was able to make a nice mix with the supplied tracks, so if thats what you're into, go for it.
