Mix Rescue: Audio Files
Hear For YourselfTechnique : Recording / Mixing
The rescue mission this month is to bring coherence and polish to the disparate elements of Solivern's interesting instrumental composition...
Here you can compare Mike's remix of Imprint's 'Let Me Go' with the original, including before and after files of the individual tracks.
VoxOriginal MP3 WAV
The raw audio for a section of the lead vocal track.
Vox Processed Dry MP3 WAV
The same audio with multi-band compression, full-band compression, dynamic EQ, static EQ, and pitch-correction.
Vox Processed Amb Symph MP3 WAV
The processed lead vocal track with ambience reverb and Symphonic modulation effects added — I've left the longer delay and reverb effects off so that you can hear the more subtle treatments in isolation.
Vox Processed Complete MP3 WAV
The final lead vocal with all the processing and effects used for my remix.
Dynamic EQ Bypassed MP3 WAV
Here is a section of the final mix without the last-minute Platinumears IQ4 dynamic EQ processing, to demonstrate the harsher vocal sound.
Drums Original MP3 WAV
A mix of the two main original drum tracks — the primary drum loop and an extra heavily distorted layer which joins in half-way through the example.
Drums Processed Dry MP3 WAV
The same two tracks with compression, tube saturation, de-essing, and EQ.
Drums Processed Complete MP3 WAV
The processed drum tracks with a selection of different send effects (including a distorted and detuned reverb) and an added percussion layer courtesy of Sonic Couture's Abstrakt Breaks sample library.
Strings Processed MP3 WAV
A section of the processed string parts, from roughly 2:20 to 4:10 of the remix. In isolation it's easier to hear the Sidekick plug-in's pumping effect.
Bells Original MP3 WAV
The original bells track, as submitted by Imprint.
Bells Processed MP3 WAV
The processed bells part, which uses fast-attack compression, EQ, and lots of long reverb to give a more ominous sound.
Piano Original MP3 WAV
The original piano part, without any processing.
Piano Processed MP3 WAV
The piano part as in the remix, complete with multi-band compression, some fairly drastic EQ, and a variety of different delay and reverb effects.
BV Edited Pad MP3 WAV
This was one of the extra elements I added: an otherworldly sustained texture created from an edited and looped snippet of the lead vocal part.
Original Mix MP3 WAV
Imprint's original version of the mix, as sent in to Mix Rescue.
No Added Audio Mix MP3 WAV
This is a version of the final mix without all the extra audio parts I added — background atmospheric samples, reverse reverb snippets, additional percussion layers, and looped vocal pad.
Remix MP3 WAV
My remix from Imprint's original multitrack files, complete with all the supplementary audio parts.
