I could have sworn I heard a Whitney Houston sample in there. Let the sample witchhunting begin..

Hmmm…I’m not sure if I should be more offended by the accusation of breaking the rules or the accusation of actually having Whitney Houston samples on my hard drive. I can assure you that to the best of my knowledge, neither is true.

WHOAH! I have to admit…that track sounds pretty damning. But I promise you I have never heard that track before. The sample that I used for all the orchestral are the four notes occurring at 01:14 into My Fair Lady. Then I pitch shift it around a little bit.

I agree though…it sounds remarkably similar to the Whitney Houston track. But it’s just a coincidence, and I’ve got the Live file to back me up on that one.

hey hey — relax — I left off the winking-smiley

I used your cut to make a remix of the whitney pella this morning….

I was trying to get everybody to just chill. I guess it backfired ;)

rofl Vic. That was funny :D

My post was to inspire some thought about the power of hysteria and maybe spark some discussion on possible preventative action toward this sort of thing. The witchhunts in Salem didn’t end until an ‘innocent-until-proven-guilty’ clause was instated by the government at the time. Just food for thought..

I totally appreciate that.

Unfortunately the bar for being "proven guilty" is very, very low as set by the RIAA and other, er, greedy entities.

So we have to strike a balance on the site somewhere between witch-hunt and bootleg. We’re all kind of feeling our way along here — for better or worse we’re in new territory here.

I’m a little awestruck by how cool everybody has been. +250 pieces of music that weren’t in the Commons a month ago…?? damn.

Har. That is pretty funny. Very funny in fact. See, if I was more familiar with the work of Whitney Houston, I wouldn’t have fallen for that.

So the moral of the story: listening to Whitney Houston prevents hysteria. At least that’s what I’m taking home from this.

By the way, I did some new mixing and mastering of the track. Do you guys think it sounds any less cluttered? The Byrne track seems VERY compressed, it’s hard to pull anything out of it. I think that’s what’s cluttering things up.

I didn’t download the original mix so I can’t compare the two. But this one sounds just fine to me.

Without a doubt, this track is in the elite 3-4% of cut-ups that have been submitted. You actually improved the original. I think this would make a great "official" remix.

Wow…thank you so much for that complement. It means an awful lot considering the quality of your own stuff. It’s all great encouragement.

Pretty freaking cool. The chorus, especially, is boss. But, you’re right, it needs to be mixed better and mastered.

I agree about the Byrne track. I can’t stand how it’s mixed. Ughh. It hurts my ears to listen to it, not to mention that the song is obnoxious. What is that instrument in the backdrop anyway? That harpsichord-like instrument…

Props for trying to do something interesting with it.
