My Wedding Mixtape

I am getting married tomorrow. I am so happy, excited, and anxious.

I just had to make a mixtape to celebrate this special day and share it with all of my loved ones.

I printed off CDs for all of the guests at the wedding, but also wanted to provide a digital download for anyone who wants it.

I hope you enjoy the mixtape.

Wedding Mixtape (Front)

The first song on the mix will be the first song I get to dance to with my wife (that sounds amazing just to say).

That is followed up by the father-daughter dance on track 2, and then with a slow dance for everyone at the reception to take part in. And then the party starts!

I wanted to DJ the wedding myself, but Diana was not keen on it. So, I hired a good DJ who will be running the show. He probably won’t play these exact songs, but I hope the feeling of the night is as good as this mix.

Happy Valentine’s Day – A Mixtape for My Love

Valentine's Day Mix for My Love

As I write this post, I am reminded of how I have declared my love on this blog three times. I was in love that many times. It’s true! And I thought each of those relationships would blossom into a death-till-you-part marriage. That is something I have wanted my whole life.

Today, I am thankful that none of those relationships worked out the way I had intended them to. If they had, I would have missed on out on finding someone absolutely incredible.

Her name is Diana and I am completely in love with her.

My grandma used to say when you meet “the one,” you will just know.

Well, I know that I have finally met her.

We connect on so many levels. I have never had someone whose soul aligns with mine as perfectly. We just fit. And it is an incredible feeling.

This is our first Valentine’s Day together and in honour of the occasion, I have made her a mixtape.

You can download the album version for free (with skippable tracks)

or stream it with the player below.

 

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!

Still Thinking of You – A Birthday Mixtape

It’s Dana’s birthday today and even though I haven’t talked to her in close to a year, I felt like I had to reach out over the blogosphere and let her know that I still think of her.

I wanted to give her this birthday present because it really is all that I can give at this point. I just hope she sees it and I hope she likes it.

Happy Birthday Dana!

Get Professional Sound on Your Recordings in Audacity

Audacity is a free audio recording and mixing program. I use it to make all of my podcasts, radio shows, and mixtapes. It’s an easy to use program and I thought I’d been getting the most out of it. I was wrong.

There are quite a few tutorial videos online from very diverse sources. I’ve watched a lot of them and even made a couple myself. But these videos, mine included, haven’t offered the best advice.

I’ve noticed that my recordings seem to be a little quiet in comparison to other files I listen to online. I didn’t know why this was happening and wasn’t sure what I could do about it.

Daddy J suggested I try using another program to hopefully get a more professional sound. I downloaded the one he suggested and I played around with it. But I didn’t like the layout of the screen and it wasn’t as intuitive as I had hoped.

The tips Daddy J gave me couldn’t be just for that harder to use program. There had to be some way for me to do what he was suggesting using the program that I already have and know how to use.

So, I once again took to YouTube and found this very helpful video from an experienced DJ.

I used his tips and my recordings sound some much better now.

Part of the problem was that when I started podcasting four years ago, our hosting service would only accept small MP3 files. Plus I just used Audacity the way it appeared when I first opened the program. As such, I wasn’t getting the most of out of program.

Here are the new tips I learned. . .

1) Float the meter toolbar and extend it. Keep it on the bottom of the screen and pay attention to it. (see above video)

2) Try to make the recording a consistent level. Use your ears when layering tracks on top of each other.

3) Export the draft version of the recording as a wave file.

4) Open a new Audacity project and import that draft wave file into it.

5) Next, play the quietest part of the recording and see where it peaks on the meter. (see above video)

6) Go to “effect,” select “hard limiter,” and set it to whatever that level was (i.e. -8.0 db)

7) Next, select the entire track. Go to “effect,” and “amplify” the track to -0.1 db

8) Now export the file as a wave for the best sound or as an MP3 to share it online.

9) Make sure you go to “options” set it to 320 kbps and set the “channel mode” to stereo. Don’t use “joint stereo” because the sound quality won’t be as good.

I never did all of the above steps before. My recordings now sound so much better. Listen to my older recordings and then listen to the stuff I released this year. Let me know if you notice a difference.

If you have any tips, tricks, or techniques you’d like to share, please leave a comment below.

(All I Really Want) A Mixtape for Chirstmas

All I Really Want is A Mixtape for Christmas

This is the fourth and final mix for The Social Playlist Challenge by My Music Cloud. It’s been a lot of fun putting together a mixtape every week this month.

This week’s challenge was to put together a playlist of songs that could be played at a holiday party. I already made a really cool Christmas-themed mixtape last year and I didn’t want to repeat myself. That being said, Run-DMC’s “Christmas is Hollis” just had to show up again.

This mix is perfect for your holiday party. It starts out light and comical, gets a bit funky, slows down just as it should near the middle, and then picks up the pace again to end with a bang.

01. Barenaked Ladies – Green Christmas
02. Bill Nighy – Christmas is All Around
03. Straight No Chaser – 12 Days of Christmas
04. Boney M – Feliz Navidad
05. Mega Ran – Snow Business
06. Run-DMC – Christmas is Hollis
07. Chuck Berry – Run Rudolph Run
08. Chris Rea – Driving Home for Christmas
09. Billy Squier – Christmas is the Time to Say I Love You
10. Alvin & The Chipmunks – Chipmunk Song
11. Elmo & Patsy – Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer
12. Dragonette- Merry Xmas (Says Your Text Message)
13. The Kinks – Father Christmas
14. The Ravonettes – The Christmas Song

November Leaves, Love, and Longing (Mixtape)

Here is the mixtape I made for the third week of The Social Playlist Challenge. It’s called “November Leaves, Love, and Longing”

I wanted this mix to have melancholy, yearning, and romance from a wide variety of acts and genres.

The theme this week was “Fall Romance” and I really wanted to set it in the here and now. That is why it has some songs about November.

The songs and audio clips from a television series come together to tell a story. Throughout this mix, we can hear two characters coming together and, over time, realizing that they are indeed soulmates.

I really like the way this mix turned out. I was a little reluctant to do this theme. But I think I managed to portray a “Fall Romance” in perfect Chase March style.

Enjoy the tunes!

01. Emerson Drive – November
02. Ed Sheeran – Autumn Leaves
03. Fitzgerald and Armstrong – Autumn in NY
04. Wyclef – Gone Till November
05. D-sisive – I Love a Girl
06. Coldplay – Don’t Let It Break Your Heart
07. White Stripes – Dead Leaves and The Dirty Ground
08. Billy Talent – Fallen Leaves
09. Johnny Cash – Seasons of My Heart
10. Harry Connick Jr. – It Had to Be You
