Default Attn PK: My Madonna Remix

pk_hat (and anyone else who is interested),

I posted my remix of Madonna's Ray of Light for the contest. It was done only using Acid. I would have liked to do more using Reason and ProTools, but I did not have time. It is a light remix, not a heavy club remix. I wasn't going for a total departure. It could be better, but that's just me...I'm never 100% satisified. And it was my first real remix ever.

Here's the link: http://madonna.acidplanet.com/Lounge/D etail.asp?PID=3001

If you can, go for the MP3. The RealMedia version sucks.

I'd be interested to hear what you or anyone thinks.

Cool,

I will definetely check it out. I hope to be able to download it, as I can't stream any audio on this pathetic 24kbps modem connection (T1 is on the way!).

Never satisfied? I certainly can attest to that, very seldom am I happy with the final recording of a piece, mainly because in my mind it's never really final.

By the way, remember the book on remixing I told you I had ordered from Amazon?
Well, I got it yesterday and if I were you (being that you seem to seriously want to get into remixing ), I would go to www.amazon.com right now and order it.

It is unbelievably good, full of tips and comments by Portishead, Kruder&Dorfmeister, Coldcut, etc.
Different ways of approaching a remix, getting over the second day creative block, etc, sampling tips, etc.

It's simply called "How to Remix" by Tim Prochak and will set you back a mere $15-20 max.


Ok, I'll post my feedback about your Madonna piece within the next few days (only because it may take that long to download).

take care,

pk

I will definitely look into that book. Thanks for the tip (again).

Retro,
I liked it. Listened this morning a couple of times. My only disappointment was in Sonic Foundry choosing that song for all of you to work on. The song itself is so overworked on the radio and M$ TV commercials that it's hard for me to listen to it anymore.

So, actually, the fact that I listened to your version twice is a statement in itself!

Good work,
Mark

Mark,

Thanks. I have to agree with you, as well. There were three songs to choose from...Music (which has 400 more entries and has been overplayed) and Deeper and Deeper (which I don't care for, so I avoided), as well as Ray of Light. So I chose my favorite and did what I could. I enjoyed the opportunity...beggars can't be choosers. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Madonna is very hot for an almost older chick! (I have to say this because I'm a couple of years older than her!) [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Thanks for the compliments. I appreciate the feedback. And I'd have to second 8mm's opinion.

Milco, Sonic Foundry and Warner Bros. provided acapella vocal tracks, as well as samples from the original song. Keep your eye on www.acidplanet.com . They have contests every so often, and I don't even think they stipulate that you HAVE to use Acid. You could use PT LE or anything else you wanted to.
