Anyone need mixes done.... FREE

Hey All,
 
My name's Chris.  I've got some free time and I love mixing tracks.  Anyone interested in having their songs mixed just get a hold of me.

    I think most of us enjoy mixing our own, but thanks for the nice offer, and good luck to you.

    I'm always interested in this kind of thing. Some people have offered to mix some stuff of mine...but I generally never hear back from them, after going through all the trouble of sending the raw tracks etc. One bloke mixed a song of mine a few years ago...put real drums on it and added an organ pad too. At the end of the day I preferred my original mix...but at least he finished the job. I was grateful. Recently, I've sent 3 whole songs out to a couple of people who asked if they could mix them...and after a couple of rough mixes, never heard from them. Lately, I think my mixes have been on the improve, so I'm not as interested in how someone else mixes my stuff.
     
    I guess my point is....if you're offering, and people take you up on it....make sure you get the job done and do what you said you'll do. Don't get me wrong, nobody was under any obligation to send me back wonderful mixes or any mixes, and I lost no sleep over it...but in your shoes I think it's better to be the guy who gets something done, not the guy who takes the tracks and disappears. 
     
    Good luck!

    Same thing for me, I recently sent a couple of songs off and got zero back but then again that's life in the songwriting game.
     
    I feel I could have said the same as you montezuma, life goes on ... and you learn to mix your own stuff in time. But it's such a downer when you get nothing back after sending bundled files of hard work off ... Kinda like being dumped by your girlfriend !
     
    Anyway I've listened to your stuff and the mix sound great to me. 
     
    Good luck to you though Chris it could be the start of something great, but maybe to wet the appetite you could add some of the mixes you have been involved with and post them here with a pre mix / master, that might help.

    I completely understand where you guys are coming from.  I get it.  It's a trust thing.  Writing and composing songs is a very personal journey.  Often times the art is a result of deeply personal events.  I treat all the artists that agree to let me work for them with the upmost respect.  I'll find a good example of my mixing abilities and get it posted.
     
    If you are interested, private message me and we can set things up.

    Cool Chris. I dunno about the whole 'art' thing and all that. Speaking for myself, I'm not writing songs 'for sheep stations', as we say where I come from. I know what you're saying, but getting songs written, recorded and mixed is kind of like finishing a half marathon or something...as opposed to some right brained artistic period of inspired creativity and revelation that we are married to. 
     
    For me, it's just a hobby that is enjoyable, like gardening or something. It doesn't really matter what kind of zen state the guy who sends his tracks to you for mixing was in when he created his masterpiece..and many of us have no profound emotional attachment to it anyway. That's all beside the point. The point is that many people who offer what you're offering simply don't follow through with what they said they would do. I just point it out from experience as advice. I wouldn't worry so much about handling anyone's artistic vision with kid gloves...unless they ask you to. Haha. Just mix their song if they send it to you.

    it would probably help if people could hear multiple mixes of different styles you've done,
    and then decide if you are good or not.

    It must be just as disappointing not getting a mix back as to offer mixes free and not get any takers.
     
    I see both sides of the coin.
     
    Someone from Nashville once paid me 500 dollars to mix a song. I gave them a hot mix and they are satisfied with the song and now they are plugging it all over everywhere.
     
    I added a few modest tracks and even some back up vocals.
     
    Nothing ventured nothing gained.
     
    Chris, please go to rexred.com and listen to my songs there and if you hear one you think you might be able to improve on the mix, let me know and I will send you tracks.
     
    My ears are getting old... I could use a fresh or different perspective.

    I agree with Batsbrew. The OP needs to post a link to some of his previous work.

    I never really looked at it in terms of a quality thing...more as a simple look at how another person would go mixing something I also mixed myself. Simple as that. I could learn something...or not. Doesn't matter. The only thing that matters, and I'm no doubt sounding very boring by now, is doing what you say you'll do...which in my experience is the exception, not the norm, when these kinds of offers come up.

    Sorry that I've been quiet, I had someone take me up on my offer and have been busy mixing.  I agree I need to get examples of my work posted.  I'm thinking SoundCloud my be a great site to post my mixes, any suggestions?  We can upload to BandLab's site, correct?

    RexRed, I sent you a PM, not sure if it actually sent as it's not showing up in my sent box.

    I sent a Cakewalk bundle file of my latest song, anxious to see what you can do with it Chris! :)

    Well today is the first day that I am reading this thread, other than the first time I read it and took Chris up on his offer.
     
    One thing I can tell you. He does what he says he will do. And he did it in a very professional manner. Before we started we talked (through PM) about what I wanted and that he could have some artistic freedom, but I would have the last word. He would not have none of that. He told me his goal when mixing is to make my work sound its best.  He wanted me to hear it and know it's my work.  He didn't want his mixing to overshadow my song.  
     
    I gave him the raw tracks and a version of a mix I did to show him what I was going for. He then sent me back a mix that I listened to, made notes for the things I wanted changed, sent him the note. He returned to me a mix that had everything that I wanted 'fixed' adjusted perfectly. This process went on for about three or four more times. And each time I was surprised at how he was able to understand my sometimes 'vague' description of what I was trying to tell him and get what I wanted right on the nose.
     
    And I must say that the mix that I ended up with, was much better than the mix I sent him to listen to that I did.
     
    After that I thought it was finished. But he went on to master the track and give me five different formats to use.
     
    Chris did what he said he would do. And more. This whole experience has changed my mind about me mixing my own stuff.
