    He added stuff but it clashes with the existing stems. I hope this isn't what Mike wants. :lol

    I think Chester's vocals sound great in the snippet. Mike's part sounds a kind of pop-like to me I guess... I don't really care for it.

    It definitely sounds like it has potential of sounding amazing, I'm really pumped to hear the finished version along with the rest of the album!

    I've heard quite a few, but the ones that the forum members have posted seem to be the best. I've heard far too many where they just overlay the stems and hit play.

    Has anyone tried opening the .wav files in FL Studio? I did, and only half of the .wav was playable, but it did break up the vocals into manageable pieces, almost word by word. Anyone know what this is about?

    I meant that he want people to add own Guitar stuff, own Bass lines, own Lyrics, not only playing around with the stems he gave us

    He also added vocals, which is not what he wanted us to do...which was what I was gonna do too.

    I'm not gonna lie, everybody needs to step their game up! They're going for something commercial/creative! So if it doesn't sound like something you would hear on the radio then it won't be picked...and if you just mix the stems and don't add much of anything you probably won't be picked out of lack of creativity.....but in a way I hope nobody steps their game up so I can win =)

    edit: according to Mike, it doesn't need to be radio-friendly, just totally awesome...but I guess awesomeness would make it radio-friendly right?

    Yup, just write what actually sounds good to you. Don't think about what could be "radio-friendly".
    And I'm pretty sure Mike also said "The crazier the better".

    In the video chat, Mike said to add vocals if you wanted too. So if that was what you were gonna do, go for it!
