U2 Multitracks

Does anybody have access to any of the multitracks from any of the U2 sessions?

I've just gotten my hands on a few of the beatles, queen, marvin gaye and a few other multitracks, and it would be great to get some U2

Would this be something you could make your own mixes of?

It's more of a tutorial, I like to see how they build and layer mixes. I don't use them in my own mixes, but I know a few guy's that sample parts of the drums.

It would be wonderful if U2 would release tracks for people to remix in Garageband format after each album has been out for a while. Trent Reznor does it with his NIN stuff and its fantastic fun being able to play with the various tracks.

That would be pretty sweet. "Think the mixing sucks? Do it yourself!"

Re: Re: U2 Multitracks

Multitracks is the flavour of the month

Everyone is talking about them on music and bands forums !

http://www.multitrackclassics.com/page/page/5155237.htm

I don't know how this started. It seems that one of the first multitracks revelead were 4 Sgt Pepper songs (Sgt Pepper's, With A Little Help From My Friends and A Day In The Life) on October 2007.

Ever since, everything has been crazy and exciting.

On January 2008, a guy named "poopchute" put the Killer Queen 24 tracks master on the queenzone forum. Immedialy the downloads collapsed every upload site.

On 02 February 2008 this guy put Bohemian Rhapsody 24 tracks master on the same forum. Soon afterwards the Queen's most appreciated collectors item ever was revealed to the world. There're several stories surrounding the adquisision of these unvaluable tapes (Berkeley students that were shown the Killer Queen multitrack tapes, etc)

Anyway, Queen fans are happiest than ever. It's a pretty ironic thing that a mysterious fan revealed the world that Brian May Stupidly, foolishly never was able to give. While the crappy QP releases has mantained the fans absolutely disappointed (and even annoyed, like the absolutely disposable and irritating re-re-re-re...release of Queen Montreal 1981) with the products, a fan made us happier in one week than QP in 10 years.

That's the reason why EMI and major labels are dying. They don't understand what releases like this would mean for us. Meanwhile they keep releasing the same s*** with nothing new to surprises us. The very best example is the Queen releases. The 2 DVD's edition with the second DVD being painfully short and filled with crap just to make it twice the price ... quite similar to U2 releases ...

Brian May has give no response for this, and I couldn't care less, honestly. What would he say?. I really hope he'll open his eyes and see what fans want *cough* 70s concerts on DVD *cough* the demo sessions *cough*

In short: OPEN THE VAULTS!


Now there're several multitracks around there. Not U2 yet, though.

This will revolutionize the music industry. So far, no official multitrack release by a band have been offered to the fans. But it's just matter of time. Trust me, this will be as cool as what Radiohead did last year

Why the slight on Brian May or major labels, what the hell do they have to do with this? I would think the majority of artist wouldn't want their multitracks released like this.

Someone mentioned Reznor has released multi-tracks, I'm not sure how true that is or not...

But honestly, your post just comes off as being selfish and spoiled.

i have to say i back you 100% there that really is over-reacting! Bands put out a record as it is, a lot of work goes into mixing them and there's no REAL reason for them to go and release all the multi-tracks except just to please a very small minority who take an interest in such a thing. Why are you getting cross at Brian May's 'laziness' or whatever you're insinuating? It's well within his right to be angry or however he's reacted to what's essentially theft and distribution of 'private' tapes not for public consumption.

http://remix.nin.com/

This OFFICIAL NIN site has numerous multi-tracks that fans can download and remix, and then upload to the site. One fan's remix even ended up on NIN's newest remix CD.

He's very generous when it comes to this sort of thing. The remixes come in several formats, as well. He first did it with "The Hand That Feeds" a few years back, releasing the multitrack in a Garageband DMG (.exe for Macs, essentially). Demand was so high for other music software platforms that those versions soon followed.

You can be sure now

Oh, and U2 would never do that sort of thing. At least, I would never expect Paul McDollarBills to allow it in a million years.

Could you imagine being able to toy with POP and Zooropa tracks????

This is a quite new concept idea.

Artist like Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno and others have offered some multitracked songs to be remixed.

In June 2006, Peter Gabriel and his Real World project launched an online competition: Shock The Monkey Remix.

http://www.businessweek.com/globalbi...o.g3a.rss1018u

That was a powerful concept, and revolutionary too, in a very quiet way. But so far, there's no physical release of a complete album multitracked.

I can imagine Paul McDollarBills predictable reaction about all this multitrack discussion. "SHUT DOWN THE SITES, DELETE THE LINKS!". Many others managements would react like that. They don't really give a damn about fanbase - it really is all about protecting their own selfish self interests. They only can see limitations, not possibilities.

Can you dig it?

U2, Queen, Radiohead, Beatles, Floyd, Zeppelin (or the first major artist) could be THE piooners, the unconventionals, the first ones, the band that everyone would talk about, a la Radiohead 2007 with what they did on In Rainbows. Damn, that would be such a great feeling, and everyone would be proud of this band ahead of its time. They would make the trend. Everyone else would have no choice other than copy them.

When everyone will search wikipedia about the history of multitracked albums, U2 or the X major act will appear first. "in 2008 U2 pioneered the modern music by releasing the first multitracked album, the classic "Achtung Baby" (or UF, War, JT, etc. It must be a classic album, so the impact on the mass media will be shocking)

I'm not naive and I'm not a dreamer. Save this post if you want. Sooner or later a major artist will do this. Until that, every artist who is afraid of take risks won't do anything, used to follow the masses. But when that day comes, they will say "why on earth we didn't make it FIRST when we could!"

So, what now QP are doing is really silly.
These files have been around for YEARS before anyone here knew about their availability. If tracks like these multitracks are never realistically going to be available commercially, regardless of how many of us here download them, we are not affecting any profits for anyone elsewhere.

I'm not saying there isn't a bit of "Robin Hood" sense about all this. Every Queen fan who have the BR and KP multitrack feel poopchute is a hero. He beated all the big shots on the official Queen circles. They have the goods, they don't want to release.
These tracks are HISTORICAL RECORD and if the band can't be arsed to put them out, that's not fans problem.

They can't see what multitracks mean for fans: they are an absolutely fascinating glimpse into the genesis of two incredible songs, and they've only deepened the appreciation for the works.
Fans absolutely LOVE the multitracks, because they are closer to the songs in a way they never experienced before. Even without Pro-tools or a decent mixing studio, the possibilities are almost infinite. Just downloadi Cooledit or Audacity for free, and you'll be able to listen to all the tracks together or separately. You can do your own mixes, listen to details we never heared before. You can listen to the piano track only, to ge the right playing, etc. Suddenly fans have all the possibilites IN THEIR HOMES, and they don't have to be on their knees begging the music industry gods for a decent previously unreleased item.

I just have finished the 24 tracks master unedited mix with my crappy Audacity tools, and so what? I LOVED DOING IT!. I was free to do it, and it was the greatest feeling. Nobody told me what tracks parts of the song I'm allowed to hear and what I'm not.

For a while you're the producer of the song, you're the engineer. I don't care if I did it with the toy called Audacity. Nobody tells me what mix should I do and the way to do it. I experiment. Surely the results of any mix will be shite, but the feeling is absolutely incredible.


So, here's my suggestion for the music industry big shots: HERE'S A GOLDEN MINE. Be prepared and take notice that times are changing. This could save the death of music industry.

What would there to be proud of? That they fulfilled a few selfish fan's dreams? They gave to the entitled?

What would be the point of recording anymore if now you release multitracks and 100 shitty remixes of every song starts getting spread about many under the original artist's name.

You would literally never get another Kid A again. No one would take the time to create these almost unrecognizable sounds and then show exactly how they did it, just so someone can tear it apart and rearrange it.

There is literally one of the dumbest things I've heard of and can't see anyone except the one off contest or something like said above.

That symbol with 'slave' written on his face would be rolling in his grave.

You just don't get it.

I don't understand you and I don't have to.

It's clear (outside your world) that the multitrack fever is spreading to all music forums and music fans.

Whether are you in or not, it's your problem. But don't tell me what is dumb and what not. I'm not alone with this.

Why on earth 15,000 + Queen fans have right now the "dumb" Bo Rhap multitracks.

Why on earth thousands are trying to get them ASAP?.

What if U2 decided to release multitracks?. Will still be "dumb"?
