Thanks for doing this one Fickle!

Is that relating to my other mixes, or to other versions of this?

Not bad at all. But certainly not the usual cleanliness that we usually hear from your mixes. And it seemed a bit loud as I had to turn my speakers down by about 20%. I marked the following:

1:19 to 1:31 - boxy sounding vocal (cut 400Hz a bit, i.e. 1-2db) However, it may be the effect that's causing the boxiness in the sound.

And I don't really care for that verse 2 sound on the vocal all the way through.

Some of those edits that drop back into the 88 version are a little abrupt.

And that ending with the delayed vocal... I loved the way it is on the MIH record. One line and then things settle. The delay kind of messes that up for me.

The previous version mix that someone brought up is called the Floss Mix. It also combined the 88 and 95 versions, except with more of Roger's lead vocal. It's not bad, but this one of yours is a marked improvement on that one. Just beware, I'm sure someone will be asking for a Roger version!

Peace,
Adam.

Can't hear that myself. Could be due to overlapping.

That slight phasing comes from running the two versions together - is there a way round that? In actual fact, I think, in this instance, it didn't sound too bad, and worked quite well in a couple of places.

There's a slightly dodgy one at 3:17, but I thought the others were OK. It's not easy with two very different drum sounds, as you will know.

I knew you'd say that! ;)


I have to say, having listened to this a few more times, it's not one of my favourite mixes. It might be better if the drums could be taken out of Roger's version, but that's probably virtually impossible without access to the original tracks.

I was just listening to HFE on the MIH album and remembered they'd pitch shifted Fred's vox up a fair amount for certain points at the beginning and end. And it's always stuck out for me. Thought I'd fix it and offer it for download, HOWEVER... there's too much processing on the Queen version to grab it via Audition. I listened to the Cross one and it was also buried in the track and had another instrument crossing it! Grrr!!

Is there another existing track where Fred's "This could be heaven" (in the opening) is easier to hear and possibly easier to capture?

The crap segment I got from the Queen version sounded really good as it was pitched up in Melodyne. If only they'd had this technology back in 1995! It does sound like Freddie actually sang that additional part rather than it sounding shifted.

Peace,
Adam.

I don't think there are any other versions, are there? The single version is just a bit shorter, but the same mix, and The eYe and Karaoke versions are exactly the opposite to what you need!

Now, there's a thought - why can't somebody do an Acapella version of the Karaoke CDs, for bands, with the instruments removed and the vocals left? That would be fun!

I also tried that little acapella trick that I remember from a little while back on here. It worked for the end and cuts and cancels at certain points. But unfortunately, there's still loads going on in the track. Defeat?

Peace,
Adam.

Well, you could ask Brian May for the master tapes! Other than that, hmm.... I did have a quick look at Melodyne, but I could only get the trial version, and there didn't seem to be anywhere to *cough* "register" it, so I declared that particular avenue closed off.

Actually, I think that Ross Robertson of the Floss Mixes had the same idea, mixing the two versions as well as one other, I think.
