  1. Hey mate, I am listening to this as I write my comments. I couldn't help to notice that the piano/vocals sound warped? I can hear the pitch being bent? As for the rest of the track; It is really beautiful, I love it. Really good balance with all your elements as always. Really nice flow, and great use compression. Only thing I can pick on you is there doesn't appear to be much going on in your stereo image, very centre panned. I'm a sucker for well placed stereo imaging.
  2. I also re-uploaded a revised version as I had time this morning to mix down the track and do a fair bit of tweaking. Let me know what you think of the fine tuned version @LabRat https://soundcloud.com/mattingle/cosmic-gate-fire-wire-matt-ingle-remix
  3. Hey LabRat, cheers for taking the time on listening and reviewing my remix. Yeah I am starting to think I followed the original too closely, but then again you can't improve something already so great I guess my ultimate goal with this version was to reboot the track. I'm thinking I might do another version where I take the track in an entirely different direction.
  4. As the title states, I have embarked on an incredible journey to remix a legendary track and I am here to share my first 6 hours on the project. So far I have nutted out most of the elements trying to keep most of them as close to the original as I can. Some I chose to vary and give new life. I have not used any midi files to re-create the melody, this was plotted all by ear, and the vocals were cut directly from the original. So, I would really like to hear what you all think of what I have so far? https://soundcloud.com/mattingle/cosmic-gate-fire-wire-matt-ingle-remix
  5. I had a set of Technic SL-1200MK2 that I had to get rid of before leaving Sydney years ago. Honestly, the Technic decks are by far the best in the industry. Reliable, easy to service yourself with regularly available parts and just an all-round quality bit of gear. I think they're up to MK5, but I haven't looked at vinyl in years.
  6. Take note the name of the track and you will understand
  7. Thanks mate Thanks for taking the time to review it. There is still a lot to do with the track in polishing the FX, synths, panning, EQ and compression. That second drop with the single key ever 4 bars I will be making a lot bigger with a delay.
  8. Controller is sold, pending transaction Sale fell through. Still available.
  9. Hey all, I have a whole lot of gear I want to get rid of as I need the cash to pay bills and it is just sitting here unused. Honestly, this stuff has only been used once, so it's pretty well brand new. Here is a list of things I have for sale. Enquiries welcome. PreSonus FireStudio 26x26 Firewire Interface $500 Rode NT1A $200 Rode M5 Mics $120 Pioneer DDJ-S1 Serato Controller with genuine Pioneer padded carry bag. There are some of the microphone knobs broken off, but that is a really simple fix, and no one uses them anyway. $400
  10. Hey mate, thanks for the feedback. Yeah I use sylenth1, but configure it from the ground up for my own presets and "sound design" as you put it. The construction of the melody is mine too, so all original
  11. Hey all, Whilst I had no Internet for 12 days I started writing this tune with a real classic nostalgia feel about it. I have plenty to work on in designing the break down and tweaking bits and pieces to polish it. But the is the general idea with the melody. Have a listen, let me know what you think. @LabRat @Scottie
  12. I came for the cheese, but only said hello. Hey
  13. No offense intended with this reply, I am blunt like the back end of an axe. But like @LabRat stated, mixing Techno is not all that difficult. I'm going to make an educated assumption that you're perhaps not used to mixing tracks for more than 15 to 30 seconds? Mixing Techno is similar in a way to mixing Trance where you are mixing 1min to 2mins to even 3mins depending on the tracks and what you want to do with them. Now, you do need to take this with a grain of salt because everyone is different and apply their own mixing styles to the genre they're mixing. Techno is one of those genres that you can have 3 or 4 tracks playing at once. Best person to watch live doing this is Carl Cox, which I would suggest you do. That would fix your phrasing issues. As for your beat matching, I can't answer that one. It is one of the most basic skills you need to hone on your own. Pay attention to the BPM you set your pitch fader to. Make sure they are accurate. Time and practise will show you that you'll be able to do most beat matching on the fly and it will become muscle memory. I'm not sure if you will make sense of this, but I'll deconstruct how I mix two typical Techno tracks together. Let's say that Track A is playing at a typical 128BPM and is in a D major key. Assuming that you're either using Traktor, Serato or Rekordbox; you will be able to see the waveform of the track giving you an indication where the breakdowns and main parts of the track are. Because I have been DJing for many years you can almost always assume (genre depending) that a track outro for a Techno track starts around the 2min30sec/2min/1min30sec/1min depending on how the track was produced. You'll be able to figure this out by looking at the waveform's or knowing your music (which all DJs should). From there you'll have your cue point to mix Track B from. Now Track B is also at 128BPM, but is in an A-flat major key. If you know about how to key mix you'll know that these keys can be harmonious and sound natural provided that the tracks have been produced with an intro/outro staying in the one key (clashing keys are never good). On the incoming track I tend to look at the intro wave form and set cue points around the 30 second mark, 1 min mark depending what I want to do. As Track A approaches my desired cue point, I hit play, make sure the track is beat matching with the fader B down in my headphones. Once that is all good, I mix the track in with all the EQs down and the fader up using the booth monitors to mix it all in keeping and ear for that beat wondering if it ever happens. Lets be honest it rarely happens with controllers unless the producer who made the track is a douche or the software has been configured incorrectly. Last thing I will say to you is this though, reading all the advice is a great tool to put theory to practise, but being shown hands on what has been said ^ up here puts you hours ahead of learning on your own. I hope that helps you mate, if you have questions I'm hanging around
  14. Welcome mate! Good to have you on board.

  19. Cheers all, I really appreciate the feed back and am glad you all liked it
  20. I think I must have rubbed off on you a little at the meet mate Nice mix. I couldn't help to notice that you may have been hitting a limiter early on in your mix?
  21. Hmm interesting. I think you both may be right. But I never work with vocals Well that is a lie I have remixed a friend of mines track from Melbourne 4 or 5 years ago. I just don't have anyone that can lay down some lines for me...
  22. Hey mate, I really like this remix. Very well done on all fronts.
