    Hi all.
    I don't have the most in depth knowledge of how our Blinky displays go together, and I'd really like to give back a little to the wider ACL community. The one thing I do know a bit about is audio editing and mixing.
    Therefore I'd like to extend an offer to help members who are struggling with getting music together for their sequences. If you have songs in mind that you'd like to use in your sequences or displays but only want a certain part of the songs or want a special mix or mashup of a collection of songs as one continues sequence, then feel free to send me a message of the tracks you'd like and what parts you'd like to have in the mix. I'm more than happy to work with you and take away some of the time and stress of one part of putting together your displays.
    Just my way of saying thanks to those in ACL who have helped me over the last couple of years.


    Cheers, Graham

    Bad luck Beacy. I was at the top of the list before there was a list :)
    I've just been slack at getting the music to Graham. It's only been about 6 weeks that Graham has been waiting :eek:

    Now now boys, I'm sure I can accommodate BOTH requests at the same time! One might take longer than the other depending on the number of edits required. As soon as I have the requests AND music then I can make a start.

    Just a quick bump as a reminder for anyone who would like any songs mixed together for their display I'm available to assist but not for much longer as I'll be busy with my own display as well as DJing the busy Christmas party season :)


    Cheers, Graham

    The one thing I think would be really helpful each year is a mashup of the top selling songs of that year. You'd probably have to figure out a way of people proving they owned copies of each song before giving it to them, but it would be really handy. For example, in 2015 the mashup could include bits from:

    Downtown
    Uptown Funk
    Lips Are Movin
    Take Me To Church
    Four Five Seconds
    Shut Up and Dance
    Chandelier
    Bills
    etc.

    For the record, I don't necessarily like those songs, I'm just listing some examples from the 2015 top 40.

    I have already done a top 40 mix for a member already this year so it's a good idea.
    Seperate to Christmas lights, I do a mega mix at the end of each year of top 40 hits. For those interested to hear the results, feel free to look for Top 40 Megamix uploads on my page here: http://www.house-mixes.com/profile/dj%20graham%20evans

    Hi All.


    Just bumping this thread again (good timing, it was 1 year ago I started it!)


    If anyone would like any assistance with music editing or mixing for their sequences, please let me know I'm more than happy to help out as audio editing is my background.

    Just a friendly bump to this thread. If you want to get a jump start on sequencing your 2017 display and have an idea of a mix or mashup of music, then PM your requests and I'll whip something up for you to sequence to.
    The cost? Free. Zero. Zilch. Nothing.
    I enjoying doing it, you all may as well benefit from it <hugs ACL>
    I may not have all the best technical knowledge when it comes to blinky, but this is what I do all year round so happy to help & give back :)
