I posted this in the main comm but some people don't read the main tenipuri comm and some people don't even watch that show but you might want a random remix mp3 I made. Here's what I posted in the comm:|
Maybe I'm the only one who thumps image songs in my car while singing along at the top of my voice, but if ever a song sounded like it should be thumped, it would be Renji's new single "ANSWER". (Also Dream to Remember and the remix, but those sound fine in the car)
Unfortunately, when I went to do this with the new CD, the drum and bass tracks were not engaging my sub! I tried ripping an mp3 and re-encoding and resampling and all sorts of cheap tricks, but nothing worked! So, I realized that the only way to give Renji the drum & bass he deserves would be to mix the song with some other track from some other song that sounded *good* in my car. (My home audio equipment is $20 PC speakers, so yeah, everything sounds the same there.)
Fortunately, Gotou Maki released a new single the other day as well, called GLASS no PUMPS. In an odd example of convergent evolution, Gotou's song has almost exactly the same beat and chord progressions as Renji's. In an even weirder coincidence, the songs are in the same KEY. So, I downloaded some free mixing software and spliced up Gotou's bass track into Renji's single, did some noise reductions, and holy crap, I made something that sounds ... well, honestly? It sounds more like RENJI. So, if you have good audio equipment, and you were disapointed in the sound engineering of the single, or if you're just curious wtf I'm talking about, I'm giving it to you. It's not perfect, I'm not actually a sound engineer and I don't have professional mixing equipment, I just used the home version of ACID, but I like it and I hope you like it too.

Now, strangely, the version I uploaded is the one that sounds better indoors. I have another version (different versions just had different noise reductions applied) that sounds better in the car. I'm not quite sure if it's that indoors the car one is causing distortion, or if it's actual noise, but if you want the other version leave me a comment and we can work something out. (I don't have room for both mp3s on my server)
