Shock The Monkey Remixes..

Hey,
I thought it would be cool (after reading another thread) to post your fav "Shock The Monkey" remixes. I've been listening, and some of them are wild! I like this one.

I'm sure I'll find more I like later. Please don't post files here, just links.

Cool idea!

http://www.realworldremixed.com/remi...P6SLzZ2o18oJ4.

I've been thinking of doing a remix myself but havn't got the time to download the tracks yet. I'm also curious how he's gonna choose from all remixes to find a winner? There are so many different genres...

It sure is dissapointing that the tracks are not available in a way that allows them to be synced up.

The fellow I worked with spent hours after hours trying to get the tracks synced up.
They all wander out of sync after playing for more than a short period of time.
I helped him with some tricks in DP5, but determined it was a waste of time.
It sounds like they transferred the tracks from the 2" without any kind of sync situation in transfer process.

We wanted to actually REMIX the tracks.

Most of the examples on the website were snippets or parts of the original over groove tracks. In other words... THEY WERE NOT VERY IMPRESSIVE!

Awesome!

A track I would really like to take the time to mix.

Now if they would just send me the confirmation email ...

I had the same problem. I have the tracks, and started a re-mix, but never got it finished, and now my rig's gone, so I'd probably have to pay for studio time to remix it it.

I said something on this forum about how the files don't sync up, and it would have been nice if they did, and someone said "it's a remix, do what you want with it" in a very condensending tone...

Anyway, back to the remixes

There is a competion on SSL's Mixbuss.com to win a Duende by doing a remix.

I listened a while back and really liked the sad, ambient one.

Man, those are just drone music parts with a repetitive grove.
The vocal line doesn't even fit ryhtmically.
It sounds like someone made some music and laid the vocal over it.
I have not heard one of these re-mixes that gets anywhere near the greatness of the original.
It just demonstrates how many people have the technology and ability to get sounds, but real talent is rare.

This is why I hate re-mixes.

It also shows you how powerful the vocal is on the original song.
It is just some pople jamming, but there are Peter's vocals legitimizing it.

I hate to sound negative, but I thought I'd hear something cool on a few of these.

Hey Danny, lighten up.

it'll be ok.

Nobody's trying to cure cancer here.

Yes there are a lot of garbage remixes, but there are also some creative ideas every now and then, which is the whole point of the exercise.

Reznor did it better (putting out a remixable session that is)

While I really love PG, I think that Trent Reznor did a far better job when he actually put out Protools sessions (yes I know of course that they didn't use protools or a DAW for initially doing the song) of "Only", and he also put out "The Hand the Feeds". No contest attached of course (which would have been fun), but at least things were lined up.

I tried messing with this, but it felt like another remix I did for a guy few years ago that he just gave me all his protools audio tracks, but not the PT file to remix. Things started on odd beats, etc... lining up was a mess.

I really do wish that they would have just dumped straight from the 2" machines onto digital, and then left it up to us to cut up the samples. At least then they'd be in some order or lined up. The files were a mess as I found them, and working in Logic at least it was too much work just for the possibility of winning a Duende.

All I could figure out is that they don't want it to be too good because the files they provide are worthless for re-building anything. We tried every trick we could think of and they don't stay in sync. Even when you do get stuff close to the original timing it isn't, so what's the point?

We did have fun listening to little parts that you can't hear that well on the mixed track.

The little artifacts in the vocals are kinda' interesting!

Bump the dead thread!

I just saw that site and downloaded the files and did this version (bottom of post)

But damn if that isn't one of my favorite all time songs... That site has some cool tracks to download and STILL has the shock the monkey files in MP3! Brilliant!

That lead vocal track is so good as is originally its unbelievable... Truly an amazing vocal cut!

Thats a rapper- Mike B.- from The Pricks rapping during the break- not me.
