On or about August 29, 2011, Sponsor Atlantic Records
will select 3 or more Entries based on the criteria of creativity, originality and aesthetic value (each
in Sponsor Atlantic Records sole discretion) (“Potential Winners”).


Hmmm.

Anyways, I've got something going with Glass Arrows, and I'm really enjoying this. Fruity Slicer is my best friend. Anyways, I hope they're not looking for us to make use of as many stems as possible because so far all I'm using is vocals I've cut up. On one hand I could understand them looking for people that make use of as many stems as possible, but I could also see them not caring if we have more than one stem or not.

Fuck me.

'fidget' is one of those unofficial made up genres in the house music scene.

it's just a plethora of choppy mixed up samples from various VSTs.

but yes, sub-genres are getting a little out of hand.

BTW, try cutting those arpeggios in glass arrows to half-time.

they sound cool as fuhhhk

Fuck me.
i think as long as at least a stem is in there and it sounds good, i don't see why they would care that much

I didn't add anything of my own, but rather cut up and tweaked what they put up for download

I wasn't sure if we were allowed to blend the song stems together from two separate songs, if anyone knows if you can post?

pretty sure they wouldn't give a shit about that, it just might be kinda tricky to pull off.

I've been doing the same thing, since I don't really know how to make/play music...I've been working on a dyed in the wool one, I made 1 minute but I don't really know if I like it or not and I'm stuck. I might just try a different one instead...

either way, I like yours, especially since they aren't like dance club mixes or anything it's more like a remaster/instruments in different spots.

It is not uncommon to double compress vocal tracks, vocals are difficult to keep at a certain volume in the mix without doing that.

I've done triple or even quad comp on screaming vocals, but most big name studios use volume automation more than compression to keep the volume at the right levels.
Sounds way more natural. I think most of what I'm hearing is the vocal comping..as in recording different takes and mixing them together. I'm thinking these stems are pre-automation and stuff...completely raw stems. I could be wrong though.

Here's what I got so far:

Listen on Soundcloud.com

I've just been messing around with the stems, especially bringing out the strings as much as possible. I think I have to change it more so that it sounds less like the original, but it's a start.

I really have to make a note to listen to what some of you have already later today when I've got more time, but I'm really excited to hear what people come up with in general. =] Also, since I wouldn't know anything about remixing, I still love this because now I have instrumental, acappella, and other slight tweaked versions of things. I agree completely with what's been said in that listening to the parts separately has only added to my love for these songs. While I never really stopped listening to BSN, now with these stems, I've definitely revisited it a lot more in the past couple of days. <3

I'm having loads of fun with this "Glass Arrows" remix. I hope at least one person is able to enjoy it.
Jack, do you remember what day it is?
