What's the longest song (not film score) you tracked or mixed?
I just finished initial tracking for a long funk song with some jam segments. Once done this song will be over 11 minutes long. I tried finding ways (since I was producing as well) to get the song split into two, but it just couldn't happen. This song is going to be great when done, but holy crap it's exhausting trying to track an 11 minute song. I spent 7 hours tracking it today. There's so much more to come. What's the longest song (not counting film scores or ambient music) that you've ever worked on?

At this place where I sometimes do live-stream mixing, there's this very authentic folk singer name Roger Parham Brown who has a vast repertoire of honest-to-God folk songs that all seem to go on for days. Many of them not in English. Who knew that "Streets of Laredo" had, like, 14 verses?

at university I once recorded a 6 1/2 hour long minimal composition written by an insane professor, no not really but it sounded like a good story.boing
