Not sure how to introduce this share, but I mixed the recently surfaced XAVEL "IEM" London 1
with the CL audience recording in Adobe Audition CC (see details below).
The matrix can be downloaded with these two MEGA links (just choose "extract all" for un-raring the files):
Part 1: [mega.nz
Part 2: [mega.nz
Link for mp3's (slightly different mix for iPod): [mega.nz
& full res artwork: [mega.nz
No adds, no pop-up's, no strings attached (and it should be available for long)^
I just hope it is well received!

#mixing & mastering NOTES:
The recently surfaced XAVEL "IEM mixes" are quite astonishing but,
unfortunately (in my opinion), lack the ambient noise typical of live
concerts. Mixing an audience source in seemed like a good idea and not
really that hard to do.
More challenging is the fact that the XAVEL IEM's are already processed
('cooked up,' as my tutor elegantly puts it) with limiters (for sure) &
compressors (likely). And, too, that the only available audience source
is severely compromised by heavy near-by talking ("chat") and screaming.
On the plus side, the audience recording has a very nice bass to add in.
But I like to think that I'm pretty good at cleaning up audience sources
with the "Spectral Repair" option in the iZotope RX05. Mind you, there is
no magic setting here: everything has to be taken out manually. Perhaps
even some more chat could have been taken out, but at some points it's
just hard to do it without noticing (so at some points one already might).
The main challenge for me was to mix the two sources in such a way that a
"best of both worlds" was achieved. The XAVEL has Mick really high in the
mix, whereas Keith and Ronnie are sometimes hard to find.
I was suggested to use a "New York" compression (parallel) on the XAVEL IEM,
in order to better balance the vocals and guitars. So I gave it my best shot
and I think it worked quite well. Then to finish it off, I used some dynamics,
and exciter on the separate sources, and a punch of (stereo) imager in the
final mix. It's not an exact science and all open for interpretation I guess,
but this is my take and I hope you like it
MANY, MANY THANKS to CL for recording, coowouters for sharing and Andrea82 for
liberating the XAVEL boots!
Huge thanks to Sharebear/Hoserama for encouragement and advice (#summerschool18!)
