Post by: Cat on November 28, 2011, 11:05:58 AM
Extremely bored with nothing to do on a Sunday night, and nothing to do today, decided to do a live mix of my own.

If you skip parts, catch the transitions and let me know how I did.

While still utterly surprised that anyone responded, I appreciate the support. I spent a good 5 hours just correcting each note and video transition just right, and i'm STILL completely dissatisfied with some of the transitions that made the final cut:

1. @7:45 - Couldn't get it to sound good any way I put it, took too much out of the first part
2. @10:53 - Considering the complete change in BPM and pitch, I thought this one was well done
3. @14:11 - This one went a lot better than it sounds. I intentionally left that drop off after he says "Drop the Bass"
4. @15:45 - Both Deadmau5 songs lined up pretty well here
5. @16:30 - Couldn't have placed a better audio transition here given weeks to work on it. Complete Success, especially considering how different Deadmau5 and Bassnectar sound
6. @17:07 - Unhappy with this one, but you can't transition into "First of the Year" very well.
7. @18:13 - Went well, Loud to soft throws you off a bit, but all audio lined up and it stayed on beat fairly easily
8. @19:15 - Personal favorite of mine. Not only does it sort of come out of nowhere, but it's complimented PERFECTLY by a Glow transition from Black to a BRIGHT white blur, into the Flying Lotus logo. The reason it makes that impact is because Flying Lotus has the sound that changed the entire mood of a video.

Overall, for my very first time attempting any Music mixing or audio/video transitioning, I think this was a great success. I already have learned from the insane amount of mistakes I made along the way, as well as the numerous I can count in the video.
