Meer info
Trance has long been my favorite genre so there was never any doubt in what genre the mix was going to be.
Nearly all of the tracks have been edited and re-arranged to fit the mix. I collected the uncompressed wav files for all of the tracks to get maximum quality (except track 3 cause it's simply unavailable in wav in any stores).
I used the "inverted phase trick" and filtering on tracks 3, 8 and 12 to create diy acapellas.
For the timestretching I originally used Ableton Live's in-the-box Complex Pro warp mode but for some of the tracks the sound quality left a lot to be desired. So I turned to the iZotope Radius plugin for Logic which managed to amaze me with some of the results. For example track 11 is originally 128bpm but plays at 135bpm at it's original pitch without any serious artifacts.
I decided to process all the tracks with Platinum Notes to get even volume and dynamics throughout the mix, having previously been pleased with the results when I used it for one of my longer megamixes. This time I used the newly released "Festival" template.
The actual mix is done in Ableton Live using a self-made audio effect rack for HQ equalizing and filtering.
I decided to keep the final processing of the mix simple and just used a PSP VW2 for basic limiting.

I intend to expand on this mix for my 1 hour megamix at the AH.FM End Of Year Countdown this year, so if you like this set keep an eye out for that :-)

Thanks for listening/reading!
