Well, it's been quiet on the "fan mix" forum for some days (I know, I am not very patient haha)

But I just want to request all Queenzoners/fans to upload their versions/remixes or altered versions anyway ... It's not a crime if it's not perfect or if you might doubt if others will dislike it. In my opinion we are fans/friends since we all like the same band being Queen ...

And the prime example is the breakthru fan version that in the end was altered mainly due to advice from other Queen fans/zoners ... And I really think that is a good thing. It's very easy to tell somebody that it's "no good", but in my opinion why not look from the opposite site and try to give advice on how to make it sound different/better etc ...In the end due to this "advice" I think fan mixes only can get better :)

So, if somebody has new songs to announce it would be great :)

PS I still have th CLTCL version (using the instrumental, but adding solo guitar and other instruments to it) available ... It is, in my opinion, not perfect, sometimes off-beat ...but what the hell, I dont own a recording studio, and fan recordings are anyway something as I consider to be interesting. Lately great versions have come out (thanks to Zedan and Lord fickle to name a few) ...So keep up the good work and upload more :)

Heh, if you've got something, upload it.

Though I think we (as a group) should really ask for a fan covers forum, as there is a fan mixes one. There is a grey area of course concerning stuff that uses Freddie's voice or Brian's guitar, but some of the stuff that's coming up (like Zedan's Breakthru) really should have a new forum for discussion.
Not to mention the list of songs on the Stage of Champions, threads on that stuff get buried real quick in the General Discussion forum (what with the BPP bullshit... never mind that lunatic that keeps asking for Face it Alone).

What you have to realise is that you need two or more different versions of a track, or a multi channel (5.1) mix, in order to do anything meaningful with it. It's fine saying "just upload anything", but these mixes do take time, and personally, I wouldn't want to upload any old shit, which would then get crucified, just for the sake of providing something new.

I also think that a fan covers forum would be a great extension to the mixes section, particularly as source material for mixing is pretty thin on the ground at the moment.

That's very much it, that's the problem. This place has been quiet vis-a-vis remixes, though I'm really digging the other stuff that's coming through. I just think there should be 2 forums for it, is all.

Stefan… yes new mixes from me are on the way but I'd rather not tell which song am I going to cover ;)

I think the fan mixes forum is the perfect place to house both mixes AND covers at the same time. No need to waste time with making another forum just for covers. I just don't see that idea working better than having both ideals shared in the same forum.
It's a creative forum more than anything else. Which reminds me... I remember yonder year ago when there was a Musician's forum around here or elsewhere, I forget where. But it was pretty thin on the ground. So, I believe combining the ideas here would make the biggest mark.

Peace,
Adam.

Hmmm... whilst I sort of think that the current setup works, it just doesn't feel right to me to post a thread that discusses one of the songs on Stage of Champions in this forum.

But meh, not that important. I just think there should be a place for Covers (not the overly crowded and completely trolled-up General Discussion) - even if this were to be called the Fan Mixes & Covers forum, it'd work for me.

I'm working on something with Niek. I'll spill the beans when it gets closer to final.

However, I'm also going to post some irregular items. Since my HD crash happened, I lost a few Queen things I was working on. I only have basic mixes of a couple of items left. I'll add to them in some meaningful way, e.g. demo vocals and guitar bits.
Hard to say when I'll get to this as I'm currently a bit snowed under. But it's something I want to get out there and be done with.

So, there's something to expect for the forum over the next month or so.

Peace,
Adam.

There have been a few new mixes posted over the last couple of days, but as very few people have bothered to respond, it does make me wonder if it's worthwhile.
