OK, thought I'd better do something as it's been a while. I've tried several times to do something with Prophet, and after a bit of fiddling about, came up with this:-

http://rapidshare.de/files/10675110/Prophet__Fickle_Mix_.mp3.html

Above all, play it LOUD!! It's beefed up, and cut down to what could perhaps be called a single edit. There's some effects here and there, but most of them you probably won't hear without headphones, because when I mixed it all together, the vocal track with the effects on got slightly buried, but I think it sounds heavier than the original, and I was reasonably pleased with it.

Edit:- Here's a slightly different version:-

Lol, you mean you don't like the Hollywood remixes? ;)

I've just put an alternative version of Prophet in the opening post, with a slightly different edit in the middle.

Your standard mix sounds great! Thought the reverb was a bit high in the treble area. I'd have cut it down a bit. And I don't mean bring down the reverb in the mix, I mean the high shelving of the reverb effect.
Though there are a couple of bad points - that's to do with the lower mids area. Sounds a bit muffled lower down in the mix at times. And there's some kind of weird sound over the vocal and sometimes other parts.

Peace,
Adam.

P.S. Could I get the pieces that made up your mix? Or are you still doing destructive editing?

Hi, Yet Again, Another GREAT remix from you, your Lordship.
Yes I Do have to agree with Ale-Pisa, your Re-mixes ARE a lot better than some of the Hollywood re-mixes. E.g. Hollywood records remix of Bicycle Race.( what utter crap that was.) I mean don't get me wrong, some of the hollywood remixes are great, like "Tie Your Mother Down" & such, but I think, to include the "Modern Style - Remixes" on the CD's was a mistake. (I can even understand, why Hollywood chose to put them on, you know, to appeal to a younger generation.)I think subtle, is sometimes more effective, than "Right In Your Face" outlandish.
So Again, I say, that your re-mixes are way better. Keep up the great work & I can't wait for your next!!!


Joyful the sound

I've decided to listen to your alternate mix for now (it's 01:45 AM).

Really like the a capella intro :-) ...I gotta say, I'm really, really liking this a lot. Unfortunately, my speakers don't allow headphones so I'm sure I'm missing some great stuff.

Sorry, I don't get what you mean - are you saying there's too much treble in the reverb? That's extremely, er, 'detailed'. Can you specify where you mean? I did put a bit of high end boost across the whole thing.

Unfortunately, the centre vocal channel also contained drums and bass, so the 'muffled' bits may be something to do with over-layering the bass, perhaps? Again, can you say which part you're referring to? The 'weird sound' on the vocals was a stereo expanding effect, which sounded great on the single track, but did create a slight 'tube' effect in some parts, when mixed back into the other channels, but I didn't think it was too bad.

Peace,
Adam.

What was the question again?? Lol! It was done by splitting the channels on the DVD-A. What bits did you want?

Thanks also to the other guys for your comments!

Thanks! There are several other 'Fickle' mixes on here, if you haven't already downloaded them. Doing a search for 'fickle mix' should bring them all up. I don't get so much spare time these days, so don't expect any more just yet!

Great mix, only, why did you make this version faster?

Nice mix. I really like the intro. Although the original is one of my favourites from that period, it will be a nice addition to my 'Queen Rocks' compilation, without the a capella part in the middle!

Thanks!

Lord F, I quite liked both mixes. Only thing that kind of bugged me a bit is that I still expect to hear the vocal part in the middle. But thats purely down to listening to the original all these years and not anybody's fault.

Very good indeed, Simon
