    What's the tempo on this piece? I thought I would see that on the click track. Or was there a word or pdf file that came with this that I missed?

    Nice song, BTW.

    They can email 'em, or send to you and I'll have you upload them, etc. Whatever works.

    At 20 bits, you are on the verge of dynamic range covering fly-farts-at-20-feet to untolerable pain. Really, what more could we need?

    Thanks...

    Tempo is 60bpm, 4/4

    All right... I'm getting a little nervous here, haha. I'm remixing this thing and now remembering how layered this song is. I have no doubt a good number of you will outmix me on this one, so that makes me feel better. I'm excited to hear this mixed by a pro now.

    My only gripe about this song is that I had a white choir. I *know* this would have come out wayyyyyyyyy different if there was a little more color when I recorded. Oh well.

    Ooh, I keep wanting to jump in and suggest things but I think it would short-circuit the learning process. I'm biting my lip.

    Learn away.

    Okay, I, for one, don't mind professional advice. Even if it's "Dave, you should have done ______ when you recorded," fire away. I'm always good for PMs too. I'm here to learn.

    Are you mixing, too, Lynn? (maybe in secret, muahahahahahaha...)

    Just finished downloading. The close drum tracks seem pre-processed (normalized, strip silence). Were they?

    Oh, you'll learn. I think ultimately, learning by doing is better.

    Probably not. I've not downloaded the files. I've got too much other stuff on my plate at the moment.

    Ack! I think the choir is just fine... even if they are Anglo Saxon. It's dancing that some white people shouldn't really do, they sing just fine.

    It's a beautiful song. Did this song make it onto a commercial CD or was it written for the stage? The bridge and the ending both have a theatrical feel.

    All of the soundtrack was released in October '08, this song being one of the 16 or 17 tracks. There's another choir one that I did that may just as much fun as this one... we'll save it for another MixTrav later on

    There was live dialogue over the intro which is why it's long. The bridge piano solo was a solo dance feature with a girl doing some some twirly ballet stuff. The ending was the grand finale of the play before blackout, then lights came back up and everyone came back on stage to take a bow during another song. Fun stuff.

    That explains a lot! I was wondering what was going on there.
