Turntable Mixxx Session 110211

Turntable Mixxx Session 110211 by ywwg

For various reasons, I finally got off my ass and recorded a new mix session. This is my first posted mix using digital vinyl control instead of midi controllers, and there are still a couple train wrecks but nothing too bad. The sound quality should also be better because the version of the Mixxx software that I used includes the linear interpolation sound code that I wrote. This code eliminates a lot of the weird hisses, pops, and static that older versions of the program exhibited.

The tracklist represents the harder end of the stuff I like now: slammin’ Berlin Techno. Make sure the subwoofer is turned up.

My Top 3 Super Bowl Ads

  1. Chrysler: Detroit

    Really this is an ad for detroit. The VO starts off a little aggressive / defensive for my taste, but it gets better from there. I think the images speak for themselves pretty well: this is a place that used to be able to make great art, great architecture, great stuff, and there’s no reason it can’t do so again. So I guess really it’s about the US in general, huh.
  2. NFL: sitcoms

  3. There is a lot of heartbreaking VFX work in this spot, including roto, tracking, matchmoving… Making it look like someone is wearing a hat is a difficult, subtle process that looks faaaaaake with the smallest mistakes.

  4. VW: 2011 Beetle

    This one’s just fun. It was a tossup between this and the helpful beaver ad, but the stupid “I got you brah” hand gesture at the end of the beaver commercial throws the win to VW.
