People who make music together cannot be enemies, at least while the music lasts.” Paul Hindemith

This “Come Together” Secret Mixter theme makes a lot of sense as the year 2020 comes to a close. The urge for families and friends to gather is strong, and we’re being called to to do so in ways that are safe and in observance of social distancing protocols. Now more than ever we have to be smart, emotional and creative. With that goal in mind, let this Secret Mixter be the way we come together, in our community from all around the world, to share the healing gift of music safely. This forum post is our virtual table where we can connect with each other while we feast on the uploads that come in.

Join us!!!

Sign up between Nov 15-28, then assignments will go out Nov 29, and upload day is Dec 13th.

Fitting and inspiring indeed. I think I’m going to dedicate my bed rest and recovery from surgery right now as a “bed in for peace” to stay in the flow of this conversation. Come Together!

Dude. META. (No deep thoughts here… just thinking about what you just put out there.)

I tend to upload completed tracks rather than stems, but I can always supply these on request. Is there any way for remixers to remain anonymous and request stems of others’ completed tracks they want to work on? I imagine it’s a common requirement for these events.

Pretty much no way to do that without spoiling the surprise unfortunately. The secret mixter sign ups do say you have to have some stems though. :)

You could just upload stems to a song (or songs) that you feel would be a good candidate for remixing, and take the chance that whoever gets assigned you for their secret mixter chooses those stems to use.

They will remain anonymous because you’re just adding stems to a track.

I know that when I get my assignments, the first thing I do is listen to their catalog, and songs with stems are like gold when I’m digging through the material for inspiration.
