Flash was supposed to be dead by now, White, but it's hanging in there.  Quite a few places still using it.

And they do come out with security updates quite often now, which was supposed to be the downfall.

I thought Flash was on it's way out. Several browsers are not bothering with it..... Not before time, in my opinion.....

Easy fix.  Everybody here gets together, creates a song that sells to Hollywood for a small fortune, then everybody here gets a new computer and software of choice.

Hey, could happen.   8)

Firefox allows a slightly newer version that is still above the minimum standard, but even that is going to expire soon.....thanks a bunch Microsoft for stopping support so the developers follow like sheep lol it's not so much the OS I object to, it's having to buy a new computer that will run it...

JUNE 2017 CHALLENGE - REFERENCE TRACKS
« on: June 09, 2017, 03:17:56 PM »
This months challenge is a short one.

The closing date is 30th June 2017 - only three weeks to get something together.

This is a Production challenge.

Your song can be a new one, an old one of yours or a cover BUT you must use a reference track and the sound of your Production (not the song itself) should reflect the sound of the reference track. 

No cheating using AMSS or online mastering!!

Please upload your song to the TTM Soundcloud, and post a link in this thread to your reference track (Youtube preferred) so that we can put them side by side when scoring them.

No time limits, no themes. In fact no other rules, just get that sound!!!

So you try to duplicate the sound and feel of an existing track which you use as a reference when tracking and mixing....

I LOVE this! This is exactly what I'm trying to learn!


I'm warning you all now, I will be asking for a lot of comments in the results thread. What went well, what should be different, etc. Not only do I not know what I'm doing, I find that I have a somewhat narrow view of things. I tune into some part of the reference track but completely miss some other aspect.

you probably do AG - subconsciously. 
Like trying to get that sound of Tommy Emmanuel or trying to get that same feel/tone as Andy McKee.  That sort of thing.

I've never tried this before... but for years I've been told it's a good way to improve on your mixing.  8)
If.... it's a temporary lull... why am I bored right outta my skull?
Man, I'm dressin' sharp an' feelin' dull

I guess it's possible but I just listen to the music never try to play it .
Never gave their sound a second thought . Not even when I was looking for my new guitars tone . My reference in that case came from 2 unknowns over at AGF that had great sounding guitars .

Other then that I've never tried to emulate a persons sound , though I was very tempted by Spirals awesome guitar crunch tone ;)  never followed through . Lol

My subconscious won't talk to me so I can't so I can't answer any questions about it lol

Nice twist on a theme!
TTM - It is the antidote for the banal idiocy of our current society.
