I liked it , what was your aim for it? my thought is I would of like to see it progress and jam at some point but that’s a hard thing to do with sample’s ,I have good song’s on my computer I’ve done all me but there not remixes so they do get published. I however did a good mix I thought of a contes entry but it’s still moderated..:( good mix though

I wanted mostly to just create sometihng which rocked a bit more than my usual things, but if I were to play with it again, I’d slow down what I did and add a vocal track.

I love Prince’s work, so that really makes me feel good.

I was playing with the guitar piece in this one, aiming for something else, when I “heard” in my mind how great it would sound with a rhythm section, and then, by golly, something I could loop to be that section was right here in the mixter samples.

This has to be one of the funkiest tracks on Mixter, and it’s by Gurdonark. OK, I admit I didn’t see that coming. : )

Thanks, Teru. My own work so often pursues its own way, but I think it’s important to try to learn how to do other things, too.

Funk with the Gurdonark treatment I like it. love that bubbly bass. I bet you had fun creating this will there be more ?.

The deep bubbles by Harri Bionic always enchant me, and I wish I could find them a home in every mix. I will definitely do more things with beats. thanks.

this one is out of the park g.

please take this in the best way: what a difference a year makes ;)

Thanks, Victor.

I think about that, too—how much difference a year makes. I could not have made this mix a year ago.
I merely uploaded my odd samples.

I did not make my first ‘real’ mix until the Lisa contest, and that mix was primitive. All my mixes then involved a lot of a single sampler, a softstudio, and a music notation program.

Now if I can ever properly mix one of Lisa’s vocals—the person who first mentioned this site to me—and also find a VsT host I really like, then I’ll begin to feel a sense of accomplishment.

I was recording things before mixter, and, oddly, even selling things and getting listeners, but mixter has been a big help to me.

Gurdo where did this come from? I missed it when it was uploaded. I’m glad I checked the picks section…you’ve really tapped some new creative direction here.

I think that one advantage of being a teen in the 1970s is that music like this gets imprinted on one as if one were duckling of rock.

I stretched that guitar solo out, and suddenly, I heard the potential in my head, and the rest was just mixing.
