We’re firing up a Secret Mixter again, only this time with a difference:

It’s (almost) all automated.

Start at our new fancy-shmancy:

Mixup Home Page

To get details and sign up.

Im excited but really nervous about this. My musical abilities are basically limited to my voice (I dont play instruments or make music on the computer). Theres not enough time in the universe to consider everybodys abilities and preferences when assigning secret mixter pals. Im afraid of being assigned to someone whose music I just dont know what to do with.

Any advice?

here’s an idea. but i should preface this idea with the question…can you do multitrack recording?

if so, find some samples (or cut some yourself) from a few tracks by the artist you’re given. create a simple (or not simple) arrangement. then use your voice to sing (or beat box) around it.

you did a nice job with that bo heart track. you should be able to come up with something.

Thanks for the advice, mcjitb. I can see how I might be able to do it. Im finding myself overwhelmed at the moment, the more I think about it, so Im going to take my cold feet and warm them up for next summer.

I plugged a security hole yesterday - seems I may have ‘over plugged’ - I’ll look into it.

Yep. Excited to get started, but nervous at the same time. The person I was assigned has posted a lot of high quality material, I feel almost unworthy to touch their stuff! Plus, they’ve provided so much to choose from, it’s hard to decide on what material to focus on…

Good luck to everyone. Looking forward to listening to everyone’s mixes in two weeks.

Yep, mine is here as well.

Had to put some good piano samples on my page first, so the guy remixing me doesn’t get nightmares from trying to remix me.

got mine and I’ve already noodled, poked and prodded. Were the pairings done randomly or was there some sort of logic to the pairings?

permalink   fourstones Thu, Aug 13, 2009 @ 5:19 PM
it’s random (code is here)

permalink   SackJo22 Thu, Aug 13, 2009 @ 7:18 PM
Oh! I feel so much better now that I know the code. I wasn’t sure how I was going to do this. :-)

Yep, got mine- I’ve started messing around, hopefully the results will be listenable by the deadline ;-)
Glad to see I’m not the only one who gets all eager for these!

yea, what colab said - it actually didn’t work out and we never did it with colab because it would ruin the surprise.

I’ll work something out for the next mixup where people can upload early where remix notifications are surpressed - for now, I’ll be thrilled if the new mixup-upload code actually surives the next 24 hrs.

Dang! I missed this round! :(

That said, awesome on Victor for setting up a page on ccMixter itself to run the event! Also, I’m looking forward to seeing all the great mixes coming out of this round.

Hey PC- as I understand it, you were the cat to come with the idea; so a hearty “Thank You” from me for thinking of it- I’m sure we’ll see you next time..

*quack* ;-)

I just had to update my remix status with a “no-go” response (mbp powers on, pings, can hear drive spinning, absolutely no display) I’m hugely disapponted - I love these things - sincerest apologies :(
 
.
permalink   fourstones Fri, Aug 21, 2009 @ 3:01 PM
Gotcha - really sorry about that ( partly because I’m just breaking in a new mbp)

If there is anybody out there who wants the assignment (no you get do NOT get to know who it is before committing, yes you have to have the remix done by tuesday and yes, I’m making all this up as I go along) let the admins know

I’ve now heard that it is a known issue with a specific vintage of nvidia chips in the mbp. Also, my assignment was awesome - whomever picks this up - mana from heaven.

Is there a particular time on Tuesday? i.e., can we upload as early as 12:00 a.m. Tuesday? Only asking because I am going out of town Tuesday morning for a few days and I want to give myself plenty of time to upload in case I screw something up.

I’ve been listening to the mixes from this SecretMixter round and they are quite excellent! Thanks to everyone who has kept this going and helped give it a life of its own. Kudos again to Victor for setting it up to run on ccMixter. This is just simply awesome!
