This is great — your mixes are getting better each time! Your foundation is well balanced and works well with the vocals.

Something that might help with keeping track of samples: the addresses for mp3’s are in the metadata — just copy the URL and paste it in your browser. Another idea is to go to the page of the sample via “remix tree” and bookmark it as you go.

PS - I think you forgot AT in your collaborator list.

Thanks. I added AT. I was expecting to find metadata, but I didn’t other than filename. Maybe I saved the files wrong?

You saved the files correctly without a doubt. You just need a utility that can quickly show you the metadata.

Not all sound editors are the same, but when you open an mp3, you usually have the option to look at the file properties (sometimes it’s listed as “information”). In the “copyright” section of the metadata, it ends with “verify at” and has the source page. You can see it in a folder if the “copyright” column is enabled, but you can’t copy the text into your clipboard.

It seems to be more trouble than it’s worth, but I usually have all the source files open at once, so if I forget where I got something, I check its metadata first.

Sounds trippy and cool. I find the challenge with remixes like this is that the vocals come across as atonal. But in this case, it works esp with the overall arrangement.

Btw, not sure if I understood the part about difficulty tracing the source for attribution. The SOP I adopt is to drag the URL into the folder with the downloaded files. If they are from multiple sources, I either organise by subfolders or take notes and save as a txt file. Initially I also found it a pain to hunt down sources again, so it was far easier to just collect the info at the start. My 2-cents.

1) Thanks! I was pleased with it. Don’t have as much musical training as some, but I did at least take time to pitch certain samples to my ear.

2) Yes. For my podcast I always save all the links initially because I am finding sounds from all over the cc web. This time, since they were all CCMixter I just “save as“‘d a few dozen files in one folder and then got confused, So I will go back to using my method.
