>Are all the instruments from the multitracks or did you
>overdub anything? That kick is cool
For WBSS, I added some things:
-the kick (808)
-the drums (chopped, cleaned intro from WAR's "Galaxy")
-additional claps from stock stuff I use
-additional percussion from stock stuff I've collected, and the Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough demo (from the Off The Wall reissue)
Once I found the BPM (126), it was easy to properly overdub some stuff. Since WBSS's basis was a drum machine, things locked fairly well.
I also chopped the synth bassline into pieces and reconstructed it. With the WBSS stems, whoever put them together pre-mixed some things so it was a challenge to get a clean mix. PLENTY of paragraphic EQ was used... :-)
For RWY, I didn't add anything, but I took his finger snap track, processed it with a noise gate to be the official "time keeper" of the track. It was fun listening to his snaps with the headphones on 20 and shit...LOL. There was a LOT of stuff that was recorded but not used in the final mix, so it was fun to play with those tracks.

>that I did mess with. Check em out if you have a chance.
Nice. This reminds me of the Stripped Mixes that Motown put out a while back. I loved those.
Did you add anything external to this? I got the PYT stems, but I haven't really listened through them to hear the differences from what was released. Nice extension of the original track length.
