Dunno if you wanted my critique or not, but if you did:

Transition at 6:16 is really weird.
8:28's also a little eh.
9:45, I know it completes the sentence, but I think if you just used Knights of Cydonia for the whole sentence it'd sound better (that is Knights of Cydonia, right? Either that or Map of Problematique?).

Otherwise, everything was so great! Nice style you have. This is the first mix that didn't have weird effects as transitions in it. I like your style, it is interesting.

Good luck at school. =3

I looked into and fixed up the transitions you mentioned. Hope you like the new ones better.

I also changed some other transitions and lengthened some tracks to find a better transition to them. and then I went ahead and boosted the entire mix by 5 decibels.

heres the order of the songs:

01. ( Start - 00:30) Bliss
02. (00:27 - 01:00) New Born
03. (00:59 - 01:40) Space Dementia
04. (01:38 - 02:09) Cave
05. (02:08 - 02:43) Time is Running Out
06. (02:42 - 03:17) Muscle Museum
07. (03:13 - 03:44) Super Massive Black Hole
08. (03:43 - 04:42) Citizen Erased
09. (04:39 - 05:06) Knights of Cydonia
10. (05:07 - 05:45) In Your World
11. (05:45 - 06:38) Plug-in Baby
12. (06:34 - 07:20) Micro-cuts (Shrinking Universe)
13. (07:20 - 08:16) The Small Print (Tsp)
14. (08:13 - 08:47) Starlight
15. (08:45 - 09:30) Stockholm Syndrome
16. (09:28 - 10:31) Hysteria
17. (10:30 - 11:10) Map of the Problematique
18. (11:09 - 11:44) Apocalypse Please
19. (11:43 - 12:07) Sunburn
20. (12:06 - End) Butterflies ad Hurricanes


that wasn't Knights of Cydonia but Hysteria. the song order hasn't changed by the way...

Heres the updated version:

Alright everyone. I had some free time and so I worked a little more on the Muse Music Mix.

The order is basically the same except "Cave" was moved to be the last song on the play list. the times and segments of most songs were edited a little more.

I would like everyone's opinion on this and see if everyone likes how this mix is coming...

Hope everyone likes it :)

Before I work out details. The problems in my ears are:
-Some contrasts between some songs (some just fit together others don´t)
-Some Songs have a bad cut. That means that they are too short. The should be splitted up into a two person job.
For example at Supermassive Blackhole (I guess it was it), I just thought:
"wtf? Where the hell is my refrain!?"

However overall it is a nice mix that just needs a lot of fixes. A few mixes between the songs work already pretty fine.

Thanks for the reply!!

I'm gonna go fix the problems you mentioned. I never actually thought about having two editors working on a single song...

now that gives me so much more freedom because the main reason some songs were short was because i was thinking that i would be giving out an unequal share...

sorry for the late reply, I did read your opinion earlier and meant to send this reply sooner, but licking kittys distract me...

I'm in finals as well. I have year-round school but I only have two classes next quarter (July 10-ish) so I will have time to look at all this, then.

In the meantime though, I am very flattered we are still preceeding, if at a slow pace.

yeah sorry for not being totally on the ball with this... I too have summer class as a full-time. In fact I was taking more than the maximum hours your allowed to take before they caught me and dropped one of my classes "for" me.

they say you should, for summer classes, set aside 2.5 times the amount of time you spend in class for studing and homework. which set me around 52 hours devoted to school (after they dropped my class, 73 if i included it) per week.

Plus, on that, I have another MEP i'm working on plus a few AMVs I started, one nearly reaching a year in the making... mainly cause I tinker on it ever now and then.

So yeah... I got alot on my plate as well...

so when mid-July does roll around, one MEP well reach its deadline which i hope to make and my summer semester will have ended. so by then this MEP may start picking up again.

Bump up to the top!

I am now out of finals and vacation (which was fun) and am entering this school year with Humanities and Typography. Although I do have editing gigs scheduled in between that (I get to edit a metal music video. :!O ) I should have plenty of time for this project now. (My lack of credits this quarter is due to multiple scheduling conflicts. :/ )

I had an idea about transitions and I realize this is a VERY BAD TIME to bring this up but I was wondering if it would hurt any of the several people who worked on the Mix's feelings if we were to ditch the mix idea and go with people doing their own segments then just trying to mux those together afterward.

If not, I had another idea which consisted of taking everyone's version of the muse mix and muxxing sections of those together so everyone who worked on the mix would be in (I haven't tried working this out yet so I don't know how good it would sound... )

Anyway, looking for others' ideas.

If both are ridiculous (Which they could be; I suck at audio) let me know and I'll take no offense.

It is just now that I have free time, even though I have school, most others do not right now so I'd like ot try and get this off the ground (again).

I'd also like to thank you guys for keeping this thread alive for so long, as well. If it weren't for you, this project surely would've died in my mind. I hope I can be a suitable project lead.

I still wouldn't mind working on this project. And still thinking of putting those fixes to that mix i made. yet i'm still neck high in school work now. (aparently my database class actually wants me to write out an entire website using a database than just some sql code. due thursday: what fun)

as for your 2 ideas:

for your first one I must recommend that you plan out whos doing what and how much of it they're doing. othewise the project could get very ugly or inconsistent or both. We also don't want to editors making videos over the very same audio. though i'm pretty sure this could be taken care of.

for the second idea. I won't care so much. I could vonueen terr to do the mixing though I not sure if everyone would rather have a third party handle the muxing.

again, I'm still busy with all sorts of things until around 20th which when my classes let out. there are other projects I need to do and i'm already past the priority deadline for AMV hell. yet after this major project (in database systems) My time should greatly free up.


I also had opinion to decrease the number of songs in the track listing a few. the length of the each and everyon's mix is so long that no wants to sit through 10-20 minutes of song just to give their opinion, much less sit there and enjoy it. it loses my attention and interest. I also don't want to rely on the skills of the fellow video editors to make this MEP good, regardless how good they may be. I feel the mix itself needs to be good enough as a standalone. For that, I feel that some songs need to be cut.

again with those ideas. I wouldn't mind going with those as long as there will be some effort into planning with the head of th project and good communication along with the editors of the project.

...That being said, How many do we still have working on this? it feels like we only have like 3 people interested in the project now...

I do think it's only 3 people still. xP

But that's ok, it's not like anyone except audio editors can really make any suggestions right now..

Anyway, as long as bliss is first (regardless if Devo actually shows up in this project or not) feel free to take artistic freedom, I suppose.

Like I said a bajillion times before, I suck at audio. And I try, but I just. Well, the stuff I Put out is crap. So I'm leaving it to you guys. I agree the mixitself should be standalone, but it's almost been a year now.

And at this point, if it took a year to make the mix, who knows how long it will take to get the actual video tracks in. XD
