TECHNICAL INFO

All tracks were checked for there exact BPM using a stand-alone BPM counter or the built-in BPM counter in the Pioneer CMX5000. The tracks were then entered in a database and sorted by tempo and key.

cmx5000.jpeg (10879 bytes)The Grandmix 2000 was made using the pioneer cmx 5000. This dual CD player with excellent pitch transpose was used to quickly try-out the best possible combinations and locations in the seperate tracks to make the perfect mix. All sections needed for a particular crossfade where pitched and recorded seperately into the Akai DD1500. Often the Mastertempo feature was used on one of the tracks in a crossfade, returning to "normal (non-pitch correected) mode" immediately after the crossfade was completed.

The CMX 5000 also features automix capabilities, but none of those features where used in the Grandmix 2000.

DD1500.jpeg (22681 bytes)The Grandmix 2000 was digitally edited on the AKAI DD1500 Digital Audio Workstation.
This DD1500 has 28 hours of recording time at 44.1 KHz 16 bit stereo. And can record up to 16 tracks simultaneously. The DD1500 does not use any audio mp3 or other destructive data compression.

Most of the tracks are unprocessed. Only a few tracks are digitally EQ'd, in the DD1500 to give them a bit more punch in the low frequencies.

ml9600.jpeg (14982 bytes)The mix was then mastered onto the Alesis Masterlink, where also the track id's were added. With it's 5,4 hours continuous recording time, the Alesis Masterlink was also ideal to broadcast the 3 hour continuous mix on Radio 538 on new year's eve.

The artwork for the Grandmix 2000 was also created by Ben Liebrand
It comprises of a couple of elements which which symbolize the Grandmix 2000.
First of all, the SL1200 turntable representing the tradition of mixing
Second, the CD which is slowly taking over from vinyl with tools like the pioneer cmx 5000.
And representing the digital quality of the overall mix
The harddisk, holding all the digital audio data whilst editing the Grandmix on the Akai DD1500. The arm scanning the harddisk was mirrored to resemble a normal pick-up arm more closely.
