Thread: King of Pop - Michael Jackson Mix (I need feedback)!!

  1. #1

    Default King of Pop - Michael Jackson Mix (I need feedback)!!

    Hello,

    This is the first mash-up I have ever created, and I am looking for feedback from the experts. I have listened to a lot of the mash-ups posted on this site, and it seems like many of you are phenomenal.

    I know this has been done before, but I wanted to try my hand at a Michael Jackson mash-up. It seems to be a different take on the artist than what has already been posted.

    Anyway, what I really want is feedback on what I need to be doing better. Like I said, this is my first shot, and I know this is (very?) rough. However, I had a lot of fun, so I would like to keep working on this one as well as other tunes.

    Here is the YouTube video. Sorry that the picture moves in and out. iMovie is kind of goofy.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0kmCPDJkeA]YouTube - King of Pop: A Mash-Up of Michael Jackson Hits[/ame]

    Sorry that this is being posted as a YouTube video. I originally made a MySpace music account, but I have been suspended for copyright infringement. Whoops...

    Anyway, I would really like to continue to produce mash-ups, but I really need some advice.

    Look man, honestly.......take this shit and drop outta the window

    Nothing about the pictures but yo mash up is ..... i don't know how to say softer, tha tracks have been mixed between each other without any points, its like take 5 absoludly different songs and make them together with different bpm and sounds.
    i can give you 3 out 10 just because u decided to do that

    sorry bro but double cash was right.. it sounds like u are flipping through the radio or something. u dont seem to get the idea of what a mashup is supposed to be. listen to more mash ups and u will get the point. u need to choose certain parts of songs and mix them together. not just throw in random stuff at different points.and u want to try to make the beats match. use one beat and throw the acapellas into the beat. seems like u cut and paste different songs to make this. try again man.

    Haha. As I said before, I am a noob at this. What do you mean, DoubleCash, by "just get some feedz more." I am not really familiar with the lingo at this point (sadly).

    at now you have only 2 feedbacks, tryin' to get more and more, like 6 and then take something for you self from those feedbacks.

    what are u using to put all these tracks together? everyone on the site uses different things so theres always someone to help u learn the program better.

    as already said, its seems like u didnt really put much work on changing the tempo/BPM of any of the tracks, they all just pop up out of no where and are off beat. Let us no what ur using to make mash-ups and someone should be able to point u in the right direction

    Thanks Excrucial. I used Garage Band on my Mac.

    With the beats, are you supposed to change the BPM of the sample or is it about finding samples that match?

    Lemme show you the soft i use:

    Virtual DJ - to checking the BPM and change it.
    ACID Pro 6.0 - Working the with the pellas and beats, cuting,removing,copying e.t.c
    and mix them there.
    Tractor - to checking BPM too
    MixMaesto Fusion - to mix tracks, adding effects, changing BPM.
    Adobe Audition - to turn the volume up

    Wow. So, generally, is it better to focus on matching BPM from songs in their natural form or to alter them using software to match?

    On a similar note, is it ok that I am using Garage Band (I am only producing amateur mixes). I looked at some of the other software out there, and it is obviously pretty expensive. Do I need to invest significant money into this project to make mash-ups that don't suck, lol?

    honestly ive never messed with garage band and dont no its capabilities, but if ur looking for better programs to mess with, they are avaliable on the site, under the "Other Downloads"

    yes it is a good idea to mix songs that are the same BPM when u are just starting out. Although just because they are the same BPM it doesnt mean that it will sound great. some tracks just dont belong together.

    Also its good to know ur Bars, so u know exactly when an acapella should come in, if ur track is on beat but off bar it will cause it sound as if the tracks dont belong aswell.

    a great place to start is with Virtual DJ, it shows u the BPM's of the tracks and it has a SYNC button to match the BPMs if they are different , although if ur used to making ur mashups on garageband then VDJ might not be for u due to the very different style. I personally use Sony Acid Pro 6.0 to make my blends and master them, but that might be a little too advanced for u right now

    i aggre with ex, in all things.

    i can give one more + to Sony Acid - the best soft to make the blends rmx e.t.c for me.!!11

    Just tryin' to understand what's pella sounds with this beat and with that.

    Look sometimes when im tryin' to choice the best beat for new blend, im looking for it.....then when i got this beat, im looking for pella. usually i use the differens between BPMs no more 10-12, for example - the beat 100 BPM and the pella is 90,100,110, but it could be 120, but if its 120 i'll change it down for 10, so that make 110. for me, if you're changing BPM for 15 or more the voice is became badly quality.

    So for at now is good to take the pella with 100 BPM or whatever u want and the beat with the same BPM and mush them togethe to get the best sounds out of the track.!

    Keep working studing bla bla, you can find some thing intrested here DJ Chat

    peace
