Hi All,

Unfortunately, 1and1 have decided that the dedicated managed server that I used to run the www.cambridge-mt.com site is now too busy for them to 'manage', so they've just allowed it to go offline indefinitely without warning, forcing me to change to an unmanaged 'root-access' server that I'm going to have to configure myself. Seeing as I have no experience of Linux-based server management, I expect that the site will remain off-line or flake-tastic for at least the next few days while I learn to differentiate the new server's arse from its elbow. I am, however, committed to sorting it out, I'm on the case, and I'll keep everyone updated as to progress.

Thanks in advance for your patience,

Mike S.

Hello again,

Just a brief update to say that I'm now in the process of migrating the whole Cambridge-MT site to an alternative hosting platform and the Multitrack Library is now back online. And thanks to the support of the site's Patrons, I've been able to upgrade the server power enough to cater for further expansion of the resources for the foreseeable future.

I'll second that - I've used the microphone position library several times.
Thank you!

Many thanks Mike. This looks great.

Mike Senior wrote:About six months ago I posted to let people know about an on-line library of free multitrack downloads I'd put together for people use for mixing practice. Since then, there've been quite a few developments, so I figured it might be time to post an update, so here's a quick summary of where things are:

  • There are now more 50 projects listed, covering a wide range of musical styles -- including more than 20 of the songs I've remixed for the 'Mix Rescue' column.
  • Almost all the projects are now provided in full-length versions -- previously most of the projects were only 30-second excerpts on account of web-space restrictions.
  • All of the files are in uncompressed WAV format at 44.1kHz, without any mix processing or effects -- just the raw multitracks, in other words.
  • There are MP3 previews provided alongside each listing so that you can get an idea of what to expect before downloading.

Here's the link: Library Of Free Multitrack Downloads

Many thanks again to everyone who's contributed to this resource. I'm continuing to add further projects on a rolling basis (so far about five a month), and further contributions/links are always welcome. Have fun with them!

I stumbled across this about a month ago - it's the stems from Brian Eno and David Byrne's track Help Me Somebody, from their groundbreaking "My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts" album.

It appears the hosting provider is having some issues, I get Cloudflare error pages for most of the links saying the host is having issues.

Let me know if some help is required hosting some of this content, I'm just starting out on the audio mixing path, but have walked many miles on the IT/hosting/network engineering path...

I think i recall Mike saying he was doing some work this year on moving his content, so you may have caught him mid-migration.

Free 6-part 'Multitrack Heroes' mixing podcast series

Postby Mike Senior » Wed Mar 03, 2021 4:50 pm

Hello all,

Just a quick heads-up to anyone who uses my Cambridge-MT multitrack library regularly: I've just released a new free podcast series called 'Multitrack Heroes', which directly ties in with it.

Basically, every episode I share my own personal mixing tips for one of the most popular multitrack projects in the library, working my way through all the raw tracks to explain what I'm listening for in each case, as well as demonstrating suggested editing, processing, and effects tactics as I go along.

If you've heard my SOS podcasts, you'll know I'm a big fan of audio illustrations, so there are loads of examples here too -- almost 200, I think. I've also encoded all the shows at the highest 320kbps MP3 quality and without any mastering processing, so as to ensure that the demonstrations come through as clearly and cleanly as possible.

Hope you like the show! :)

Cheers,

Mike S.
