Here's my effort at Breakthru:-

http://rapidshare.de/files/1763514/Breakthru__Fickle_Mix_.mp3.html

It's a sort of hybrid of the 12" mix and the album version, with a bit of EQ tweaking, done with Sony Soundforge. Hope you like it!

Very very good remix!!!!! Nearly single release quality!

You´ve got magic hands!

My favourite is the Miracle album, so now i´m waiting for the extended version of "The Miracle" and an remix of "Invisible Man" from you ;-)


....that would really be a Breakthru...

I enjoyed this remix more than the 12" version. You used a lot less of the sequences with the annoying effects and concentrated more on the song itself. Very good job.

Hi Jackie,

When you say "nearly" single release quality, what do you think might have put the icing on the cake? The hardest, most fiddly part was trying to get the EQ the same all the way through, as the 12" sounds so different to the album version. It's good to know what people think - thanks! :)

I meant nearly, because it isn´t an official release ! But it´s got the quality of an original!

You did the crossing points very good! A remix is shit if you hear the the changes between the versions you used. But you managed to get the sound quality on one level!

For example: At the end of the "Invincible Hope" remix of Inu-Liger you can hear the changing sound quality when he put in the ending part of the remix version. That´s very disturbing and it makes that mix NOT perfect! (Hey, Inu-Liger, do it again, please)

For doing your version most perfect ask Brian to play an extended guitar solo for the song,haha

No, very good job like i told you before!!!

Very nice edits. Only the second one I've really liked on here! Will those other two mixes of yours provide my third and fourth?!

Peace,
Adam.

I won't do it again, even though I considered doing it even before you posted.

Lol! I'm not really sure what can be done with The Miracle. It's not one of my favourite songs, so I don't tend to listen to it all that much, and I don't have those other two versions you mentioned anyway.

I'm working on a version of Hammer To Fall, which will be the Headbangers Mix, with better joins than the original, I hope!

Ok, no problem! I´m sure Hammer will become another great remix!!

And Inu-Liger: Sorry! You know I like your remix of Invincible Hope!!!!!!!!!. I only wanted to give compliments to Lord Fickle. His Breakthru is 99%. Your Invincible Hope is 90%, perhaps you didn´t realize that little soundlevel-problem at the end........ ok????

If someone provides those mixes of The Miracle, I'll take a look at it. I won't promise anything, though. But I like the song, so you never know.

Peace,
Adam.

Actually, I did realize the sound change near the end; that was kinda intentional

Does anyone know if these mixes are allowed to be played on community radio stations, or would there be copyright issues? Also, along the same lines, is there any way for us to protect our mixes from other people downloading them, and subsequently claiming them as their own?

Ouch, that's a toughy... It could happen, I'm afraid. You could always try and go through official channels but I'm not sure how that'd work.

Peace,

I dont claim to be a legal expert here, but I would imagine that they would be subject to copyright issues

At the moment there is probably no chance of protecting them. Doesnt seem to matter how you try, as there will always be someone who can get round whatever method of protection you use.

OK, thanks guys. I have a mate who's into community / hospital radio, but neither of us were sure whether these mixes could be legally broadcast.

As far as copy protection, I guess we just have to trust people's integrity. Cubik703 posted TMLWKY, and could have claimed it as his own, but had the decency not to, so hopefully most people will be the same.
