Default Charles Dye\'s "seven course in mixing"??

Hi.

I recently purchased a Mix plus system and I've been searching Digizine to se if I could find some tricks, that could improve my work in pro tools.

I very excited when I ran over Charles Dye's "seven course in mixing" which I found in his columns called "hard disk life".
In each column one was able to download a session, with examples from the lessons using Rocket Network and DigiStudio. This is a brilliant idea and that's just what I've been looking for.

So I was very disappointed when I noticed that as of April 1st 2003 the DigiStudio sessions wasn't no longer available for download.

How come? It's a great way for new-comers to learn some of the possibility there is in Pro tools and a good publicity too?? Here in Denmark, where I live, there ain't any training schools for Pro Tools. You have to learn everything by you self, so these sessions would be a great help for gay's like me.

So please tell me that it's somehow still possible to down load those sessions or, if some of you backed it up on CD's I would be more than happy to pay you for your trouble sending them via US Mail.

Thanks so much!!
Peter Siegfredsen

I think the plug got pulled on the Rocket Network due to lack of profits.

I found Dye's session's to be very helpful, but... C.D. uses a huge amount of plugs, literately 4-5 inserts on each track, plus a ton of plug loaded busses. So unless you own all those plugs, you're not going to hear the final product as he intended it to be.

Reading through the Hard Disc Life series is really usefull too.

I'm pretty sure I trashed all the sessions, but if you have any specific questions - maybe I (or others) can jog our memories.

Anyway, he had some good points and he was the reason I bought the DUY Everpack (I like it, too [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] )

Thanks for your reply.

"I'm pretty sure I trashed all the sessions, but if you have any specific questions - maybe I (or others) can jog our memories."

I don't think I have any questions right now, thanks anyway. But it would have been really nice to se it all in action, so if you or others who reads this should have the sessions some were, please let me know.

Thanks,

Donny

Could you email the site to me too.

I talked with Dye through email a while back. I told him he should come out with a course on CD/DVD--the guy is so cool he asked for my advise. The last I heard from him he is going to come out with something to share his talents even more with others--you have to buy it but it will be worth it.

Looks like I am about a year too late! Damn! This stuff is priceless. I just emailed Donny to see if I can still get.

Digi should really accept CC payments and let us have access to this gold.

I have read many books on mixing and such but have never seen anything so specific on plugins where you can a/b the results in your own sessions. Amazing.

If Donny is no longer around, anyone else know where I can find these things? I downloaded the demo plugs for "big drums and bass" and they expire soon. I would like to get my hands on these. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Monty
