Mix with me! The Hungry Drunx: "Last Leg" CLOSED

Aiight, I thought doing it this way might be sompin' different and fun.

Below is the 12kps*.mp3 of a faders-up mix of what I wrote and recorded last night and today as a new The Hungry Drunx tune, a project in which TOMB's SNARL posts drum tracks and I use them as a basis to write and record.

The song is a guitar-driven tune called "Last Leg", and there are nine, 16 bit, 44.1khz  *.flac tracks (and the ruff mix *.mp3)  inna 78.6meg  *.zip file, here:


I'll be working onna mix and posting it over the next day or so, and I hope all y'all will, also!

Some notes:
[li]Drums are essentially live (from 1 minute *.mp3 files, and the chorus from a different take) so there is no real set tempo - it is approx. 122 BPM.
Verses are Am & Gm; chorus mixes Bmaj (bass) and Bm (guitars).
Elec. guitars (G&L F100E and Hamer American) are through emulators (Zoom GM-200 and Hafler T2-Microcab) as opposed to real amps - try pass-filters.
Bass (Alvarez POS) is DI through a Studio Projects VTB1 which the emulators also run thru, and the ribbon (NOS R2) mic'd tambo (wooden).
All vocals (AT4040 mic) have some compression (Meek VC3Q) and pass-filtering and limiting.
Feel free to re-arrange, edit, exclude or even add tracks! Like say, some keys ... (hint-hint)
If you can't open *.flac, lemme know and I might could post *.wav files. (But see here, first.)
No $, but it's just possible we will (only after asking and with your explicit permission) use your mix on our next CD/Bandcamp thing.[/li]
Please have fun!

Hi vvv,
I used this converter :


It converts FLAC and other strange files to MP3.
It is only for Mac OSX...

Thanks for the link! Great piece of software.

FWIW, I find FLAC much smaller than WAV, (but see very little difference between ZIP and RAR.)

Could you guys start using something like www.soundcloud.com or www.dropbox.com for uploading and posting links to your mp3's or project files? It's a real time saver instead of downloading an mp3 attachment and loading up in a player. Instant streaming is much better :) Thanks!

I don't know if there's any interest here, even, but I've been having a lot of trouble with the mix of this song.  

Since I actually wrote & recorded this to post at mixoff, I feel bound to work with the tracks as performed.

I did some heavy edits on the bass track and also iso'd the snare, and they are available here:

I tried to make something... http://snd.sc/krM6Ef (I'm quite a beginner)

I will listen to your mix.
Hello kins, I like the balance your mix, but a few things are apparent: 1) it's a little dry and far-away sounding, you could push the envelope a bit (literally), and 2) you should try a little mor... (read more)
