Holiday Mix off - analog synth tracks

Hi -

I want to learn more about mixing electronic music. Hence, some tracks posted for your mixing pleasure.

Please take this to outer space and back - anything goes!

***UPDATE****The newly split mono tracks are here:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/2d2q4arkcsn7h3b/raw_tracks_holiday-split.rar

My original export had combined the stereo tracks into mono causing problems on all the synth tracks - one side of the synth is dry and the other side is through a stomp box delay.

Apologies to all those who downloaded the mono-laden mess. Now, these are all separate so you can mix / pan / mute / delete to taste.

tracks built from

-boss drum machine
-juno 106 w/ memory man (multiple tracks)
-mic'd piano

I did one pass through on each - 100% improv - I'm curious to see what folks can come up with through selective muting and FX'ng.

PS -there is some audible clipping on the piano transients in a few spots (at around 2 minutes for example) ! I ran it too high...

tempo unknown - I should have written it down I suppose...

My raw mix:

My original export had combined the stereo tracks into mono causing phase problems on all the synth tracks - one side of the synth is recorded dry and the other side is recorded through a stomp box delay. When these were combined on my original export, it was ugly. Quite embarrassing I did not catch that.

Apologies to all those who downloaded the mono-laden mess. Now, with the link above, all the tracks are separate so you can mix / pan / mute / delete to taste.

I like it ! Very clear mix. Not too drum heavy like mine.

I did not consider putting the piano that loud and it works with your mix.


Thanks!

totally forgot about that I had the tracks lying around, so I grabbed them and did a super quick mix. didn't have the time to do much with it, but you get a rough idea anyways. will probably dig a bit deeper when I have time. anyways, here it is

I threw a ton of reverb on the piano. Don't really have a reason why besides I like how it sounded. Thought it fit with the vibe of the song.
