Linkin Park - The Catalyst (24Xero Remix)

This is my version of "The Catalyst", and I think I did a great job on this remix. I really wanted to finish my remix before July 25th, and I did, even though I couldn't enter the "Featuring You" contest because I live in Sweden. And I hadn't finished my remix, so I could enter the fan edition contest. I don't want to release something that I'm not satisfied with or done in a hurry.

I made this remix in Magix Music Maker 16 Premium. I wanted to have the static electronic sound that you can hear in the intros of the new Linkin Park videos. I use some of the stems LP released, and I took some from my sound pool collection and made different changes to them with effects and stuff. When I was done with the instrumental, I then used Sony Vegas Pro 9 to sync the vocals with my remix. I know that Vegas is used for video editing. However, It's very great for sound too and Vegas has the same structure as Acid which is more of a sound based software. I have Acid Pro 7 also, but I haven't used that program that much and Vegas does basically the same thing.

When I had finished syncing the vocal stems to my remix, I wanted to create a video for it. I took some clips from the latest Linkin Park videos and used the static interruption parts. I looped the video clips and blended the new photos of the band into the video.

I think the result turned out really cool both the remix and video. Watch it below!
