SecretMixter is a remix game. The names of the participants are collected and then each person is randomly assigned another participant. Everyone then produces a remix for the artist they received in the draw. There is no grand prize or material reward. The point of the game is to have some fun, test your skills with the random draw and see how your material is put to use.

4. Do not upload your track until the upload day. (Tracks uploaded to ccMixter.)
5. Add the tag “secretmixter” to your entry.
5. Have FUN!!!

Wow! Big crowd this time around. Glad to see some returning people. Happy to see the new players. Thanks everyone for joing in! Thank you Victor for the banner link and for joining in again. (Victor is the mystery man who uses dark rituals to constantly improve ccMixter while it stays functional. Forbidden Cthulhu summoning like stuff, or so I’d imagine.)

Remember that the draw is this coming Monday and then you have 13 days to produce your mix. Please remember to wait to post your track until the posting day.

We’re already at 15 participants. Total madness. I can’t wait to hear the craziness that comes of this!

I could manage with a complete track, but then again, I’m special (well not me really, but my remix software - I would feed it short snippets of your track and see what came out).

In general I think people would prefer to have single instrument tracks at least. But that’s only my opinion.
permalink   PorchCat Fri, Sep 15, 2006 @ 8:28 PM
I would encourage you to upload a few smaple tracks or a couple more remixes. Thanks!

just to say that if you get me as your SecretMixee then you can also use the WAV loop downloads from the Musetta Ophelia’s song channels of my Evolutionary Remix Machine (TM) (plug plug) at

they are under the same CC licence as the musetta samples

…but I really hope that you’ll be able to do something with my baby’s bizarre talking (see my sample uploads).

hope you all have fun!

thanks again to porchcat

To get your pick, please log into the SecretMixter site linked in the main post. If you have not set up a password, it will ask you for one the first time you log in.

I edited the main post to avoid further confusion. Sorry for not being clear.

Hey PC, I fixed your tags url, I guess I should have told you but I’m translating all secretmixter tags (and other variations) to “secret_mixter” on new uploads
permalink   PorchCat Sun, Oct 1, 2006 @ 4:52 PM
Thanks! :)

permalink   Uncool Bob Mon, Oct 2, 2006 @ 4:12 AM
I noticed that too - thanks victor :-)

Any discussions underway to introduce something secretmixterlike into the ccMixter site code? I reckon it would be well used.

Has anyone heard from Anchor Mejans? He seems to be MIA (mixing in action)…

Hey rev……NEED A LIGHT?
permalink   Uncool Bob Tue, Oct 3, 2006 @ 5:01 AM
are you suggesting I steal the nice animated avatar you made?
permalink   Mon, Oct 2, 2006 @ 5:05 PM

thanks to *meow* and victor for organization and support! This was a great experience and it was really cool listen to all other secret mixter submission.

Here a little suggestion: I have heard many interesting and inspirating riffs and loops. So why not put them all toghether and make a Secret Mixter III Sample Pack?
permalink   PorchCat Thu, Oct 5, 2006 @ 3:35 AM
Thanks! I’m glad you had a good time. I hope to see you come next round! :-)

Ohhhh, loops packs, that would be nice! How do you think we should handle it? Each person contributes one minipack or track or …?

permalink   BUNNIES GONE BAD Thu, Oct 5, 2006 @ 4:20 AM
If you check the secret mixter tag you’ll see that there is already a sample pack (I called it Quickpack 1)

Obviously it would be much more cool to make a “Secrect Mixter III” sample pack with samples and loops from all
