bill- not sure yours sounds any better or not. i might have even liked the old distorted drums better--not sure...


That's easy to fix, I trust your ears more than mine so I'll do that :P ...I'm definitely sure that the changes I made to the patterns were an improvement though!

About the redo's, not everybody has to fix something about their beat, but the least everyone must do is to post them up for download, so that someone can gather them all..
Everybody should make their MP3 at the same quality as well, how about say 192kbps?
Maybe that someone who gathers them could normalize them as well..

As for the cover, I still say Jayred's is awesome. "Sampling" a cover was a great idea :(

I'm still not finished with mine but I've been slackin a lot...I'll have it ready soon...

well, you are the "kurata" ;) ;)


dead right! :D nice one. yeah I'm up for mixing the album...I did a STMB BB mix for #39, it's up on jayred's site...I kind of half assed it, i will do a better job on this one. let me know what you guys are thinking for the format...should it have og dan interludes? any ideas out there?

I like Jayred's cover also...cept shouldn't the title by "Steeling from Dan"? I also like mchi's cover, especially the subtle background text....would be cool to throw those ideas together...

oh yeah also why not 320kbps mp3s? or even lossless wav if ya guys want, i'm down--got a farm of harddrives... :D . just point me in the right direction for the file or email me at customcincinnati@yahoo.com.

if anyone else wants to take a crack at this...speak up. meanwhile got TYJD Act 3 on endless repeat...kinda hard to work on my own stuff right now...rip James.

I still think we could go with this one:

Chucho Valdes - Nanu

So TKurata gathers the Steely Dan-entries? Should we set up a separate thread for it?

We can just post the files up here...but we need a new thread for battle #51. I'm up for gathering the tracks and unless someone else steps up I'll take a shot at mixing/normalizing etc.

Can we agree on 320 kbps mp3s? Post up a link here in this thread for your file...

Shit ya'll...I've been absent for much of this...my apologies.

I'm tryin to crank out as much video for the art show next week as I can. If you folks are interested in having some good press, you can hit me with links (at my myspace page...or by PM) to DL some of your instrumentals (long as they're school-appropriate stuff...no foul language or sex/drug references) and I'll bust a video for ya...long as ya dont mind me usin' it in the art show for background visuals. Also include your artist name, track title, and web addy you want me to list in the vid. Maybe you'll get some web hits outta it or something...

Peace.

-- J

PS - I'll be back into stuff once the art show is done with...meantime I'm sittin these out.

I turned the bass down a little, rearranged the pattern a little, removed some and added some..I think it's better.

Listen at myspace.com/billcollectr
Or download at (right-click and save)

Let me know what you think about the sound quality..



i thought the original one you made had a better arrangement and sound. your original was sick cause it kinda built up to the middle part where the guitar sample comes in. i dunno , thats just my take on it.

Any thoughts on album format? track breaks? OG SD interludes? vox drops? title? (Stealing from Dan or Steeling from Dan? huge dif :mellow: )

Hm..never thought about that..I think the pattern I liked the least is the one with the guitar "solo" thing..that sample didn't really fit the rest, which is why I only play it once or so in this new version..
Anyways, thanks for the input, probably too much for me to go back and change anything now though :mellow:

Hm..with that amount you could blend them in between like two SD-albums, assuming you don't play the whole tracks :angry:
I hope some more shows up, but I definitely think that the sampled songs should be in there in some way..
Track breaks makes it easier for the listeners...

i like the og dan snippet interlude idea.
i still think it should be called steeling dan, not steeling from dan. but at least steeling over stealing.
i like the aja cover versus the one with the photo of their old-ass ugly mugs.
sorry but you're not gonna get a 320 track from me. i save all my garageband projects at 192 so that's the best i can do

Get to work, it sure needs more tracks B)

I agree with Wig on Steeling Dan. And the cover.


How does Garageband do, doesn't it save your work as some kind of special project?
That's one thing I like about FL Studio, that you can always export your project as an mp3, in any bitrate..

garageband gives you the option of saving your file as a 'compact project' in 3 diff sizes to save space.
it reduces the entire project to around 10-20 MB. you can bounce your song directly into iTunes as an AAC or mp3.
i used to do them at 320 or whatever but who cares about sound quality really. a good song is a good song...
