This should take you to my yahoo briefcase where I keep the file which I named Waig.mp3
I\'m no expert in mixing so if you have any suggestions, please let me know.
The sounds I used are:
1. Washing Machine and Dryer Loops and Hits from BolderSounds (free sample which I used in place of flat gongs which I don\'t have - they sound similar, nonetheless)
2. Darbuka and Woodsticks from G-Town (also free)
3. Pan Flute from Thomas J (free as well).
4. A loop from Prosamples \"Ethnic Adventures\" from Percussive Adventures, Vol. 32 by EastWest
5. Anklungs (my own samples)
6. Pads from my Roland XP-30
7. The bass and the other instruments are from Dreamstation, a DXi instrument that came with Sonar 3
Except for the XP-30 and Dreamstation, I routed everything from Kontakt (did some conversion from giga) into Sonar 3, then encoded to mp3 via Vegas. I did everything with one computer but I never had any problems. By the way, Sonar 3 is fabulous!
That\'s kind of cool. Just when I start thinking that it can\'t sustain my feeble attention span, you throw in a little change that brings me back in a bit. Nice. I would maybe have liked to hear a dynamic softening in the middle somewhere. That would grab my attention even more.
Thanks, Christianb! For this one I really intended subtle changes in each section to achieve a sense of \"meditative state\" without getting too monotonous. I hope I was able to achieve that.
I was just listening to my mix in the car and I was kind of offended by the bass line (which gave me a headache!). It also doesn\'t bind well with the pads so the harmonic structure became a bit loose. That\'s what I get from monitoring with ordinary home stereo speakers! I\'d like to do it all over again but I\'m just too tired now - maybe tomorrow.
