    Hi.

    I got an idea about making the longest drum & bass mix posted on the official homepage.

    For example the first person would mix 2 tracks and the next would add 1 track for that 2 mixed
    before.

    I think about something that look like a soundcloud.com player :)

    What do you think about it ?

    now, you have to consider the ramifications of posting this idea on a drum and bass forum. The simple equation is that (D + B) x (People)= 1.434.Long3


    Theoretically it can be done correctly (see below) but mathematicians are a scarce resource since they all migrated to dubstep...

    its rather impracticle, as it would require one person to put all the individual mixes into one massive one - take the jump up mega mix http://dnbforum.com/showthread.php?99807-DNBFORUM-JUMP-UP-DANCEFLOOR-MIXTAPE-THE-SECOND-COMING.
    i think joey put it all together for the 6 or 7 djs they had.
    doing that for everyone on here would be hell.

    nice idea, but unless you find someone with a lot of time on their hands...
    plus the organisation to avoid the same tracks over and over etc

    I like the idea, maybe a few more than a couple of tracks each to save a load of effort as previous posts detailed?

    with small losses of quality each time a person mixed over the mix, wouldn't it just sound shite by the end of it?
