    I would like to add that you shouldn't add the theme in your SoundCloud description or here in the comments. It's supposed to be secret until you start take part in the competition.

    Forgive me for the extra 23 minutes, mixing can be ever so harder under time pressure.

    That was crazy hard. I did it in exactly an hour from email to upload.
    [SC]http://soundcloud.com/sagegoofingaround/sso-one-hour-disaster[/SC]

    LTD 401QM with EMG 81/85 set
    MIM Jazz Bass
    Pod HD500
    Logic 9 supplied drum loops

    Realized after I uploaded it that the guitars sounded like balls because I used preamp only patches on the Pod and didn't use cab sims in Logic. D'oh!!

    I have no idea how you guys get such great results in an hour. I obviously need to get my recording chops up to speed. I spent about 96% of my focus trying to make the DAW submit to my will and 4% playing the guitar. I think that shows really nicely, also.

    EDIT: This is what it would have sounded like if I'd taken an extra 10 minutes to add the cab sims and polish the mix ever so slightly.

    .... missed it! Have a song done in those requirements already, but that'd be lame as it's already two months old ;)

    Here we go... This must be the most random thing I've ever done :D I always try to get out of my comfort zone with these, but this time I just pretty much let the song compose itself, which was quite refreshing :)

    Anyways, I used:
    Ibanez RG1527 -> V-amp 2, clean with chorus+reverb and my default distortion for the lead
    Harley Benton 6-string bass -> V-amp 2 with a slightly lighter distortion
    SD2.0 (Avatar) for drums
    Presonus Firestudio Mobile -> iMac with Logic 9

    That's it. I was gonna put some heavy guitars on top, but then I decided it'll be more interesting if I leave them out. Don't really know if it fits the theme, but at least I had some good laughs with this one :D

    All the details took all the time from the actual composition...
