This is the first ever MEGAMIX I ever created in my entire life. It is of NAVEL4EVE’s debut album Go Home. There are two purposes for this megamix. The first is as a preview of the album. The second is as a demonstration of the stems I made for remixing purposes.

I wanted to put up a Youtube video that played clips of each track on the album to pique people’s interest. I’ve seen this a few times on YouTube and it really helped introduce me to the rest of an album where I only heard one song. But I couldn’t be bothered to make something as boring as fading in a song, having to pick a 30 second passage of a song, then fading out, repeat until all the tracks have a go. I mean, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but for me I needed a bigger challenge/headache.
Later one day, I was in the car with my younger sister and there was a megamix playing on the radio. Then we had to leave the car to go shopping. Several hours later (it was Christmas shopping, ok), we returned to the car and turned on the radio. I was amused that the megamix was still being played after how many hours “This DJ is *STILL* megamix-ing?” That’s when my sister informed me that the megamix was not being played on the radio but on her MP3 player and that she only listened to megamixes in the car. I felt dumb and tried to cover that up by retorting “Why? Short attention span?” and she replied “Yes” and I felt even more dumb. But it got me thinking: Let’s make a megamix of Go Home!!!!
Usually, I’ll plan a project, see how much work it is, then quit. That’s what actually happened here initially, but as we can all see, I finished the Megamix. And it took me only 2 days which is amazing for a slow music producer like myself. Here’s how I did it:
Click on the image for a larger image. Look at the picture and that’s how I did it. I used Logic Pro, my music making program at the moment. I had no idea how to beatmatch audio files. Then one day, I got bored with playing SKYRIM and read the electronic manual for Logic and learned about Flex mode. Luckily for my purposes, I just had to read and do Step#1 which is Enable Flex Mode. So easy! After I got the technicalities out of the way, the megamix-ing part took no time at all. Thankfully I had mixed the album so that all the songs sounded the same in case I ever wanted to do a megamix, right?
So there you have it. A megamix previewing the album and also demonstrating what can be done with the remix kits/stems I made of all the songs (there is one added bonus which is the ALL SOUDAS’ CHOIR featured in Lovely Ugly). Enjoy the Megamix and share it with everyone!
