@miked and @blairhall1974 and I shamefully went off-topic on @DeRebel’s Nail the mix thread and started talking about dueling mixes and contests. Then Mike suggested we should have something like Dueling Mixes here (Graham’s and Joe’s mixing tutorial thing), or at least resurrect some mixing contests. Then I said it was a great idea and would enjoy that. Then we realized it was too late, and Jelle’s thread had been completely hijacked. Now Jelle won’t speak to us and his thread is destroyed, and we still have no mixing contests. Been a tough day.
On a more serious note, it was actually Jelle’s suggestion that we possibly start a mixing contest here. I thought I’d start a new thread and see if there’s be interest in something akin to a dueling mix thread, led by some of the more advanced mixers here (is there any kind of intellectual property stuff for borrowing their idea?). Or interest in resurrecting some mix contests?
If so, what would need to happen to make that happen? I’m not even concerned about prizes (though it’d be cool!), but just the learning experience. Any interest? Any thoughts?
Thanks, Jelle, for getting our creative juices flowing. I’m hoping there is more interest.
