There’s a nice little secret santa style mix tape/cd/usb drive swap happening in the Mess and Noise forums at the moment. I’ve finished my mix and artwork and will be “mastering” the volume levels of the songs (I’m a pedantic nerd like that) and sending it out in the next few days.
A week or so ago I made a prototype of this mix. I wasn’t entirely happy with the final mix and used iTune’s “Sound Check” function to try and level out the volume of the songs. Sound Check sucks. I already knew it sucked, I thought maybe they’d fixed it in a software update since I last used it. They haven’t. So I’m going to do it manually.
Anyway, the prototype CD is still pretty cool. It’s got more/a few different songs to the one I am sending to my mixee. I was about to throw it in the bin before deciding it’d be way more fun to leave it somewhere on public transport this evening with my twitter contact written on it and see if anyone finds it and responds.
