I'm tidying up all the files for Winter Collection, and I discovered that I hadn't saved the final version of the source file for the first track.  I had saved it, but then I'd done some more changes, and not saved those, and then produced the .mp3 I uploaded from that unsaved version.

Spent about 30 minutes fiddling with it trying to get it back the way it was, then realised that what I'd done was put an intensity hold on it, which is why that track sounds so mellow.  That done, I was able to reproduce it exactly.

I think.

I don't have a .wav output of the original either, so the best I can do is compare the original .mp3's waveforms with the new one.  Or do a blind test to see if I can tell the difference.

Update: Eyeballing the waveforms, it's very close up to the 1:57 mark, then it diverges.  Looks like some more tweaking is in order. neutral

Update: Eurgh.  Well, the sequence of notes is exactly right.  Now I just have to place - at most - 17 intensity markers at half-section intervals until each sub-section matches exactly.   Sigh.

Update: Aha!  Had it almost right except for the ending.  I couldn't persuade it to do an automatic fade and switch sections on cue; I could do one or the other, or I could switch sections and do a manual fade, but I knew I hadn't done a manual fade before, so it meant I was missing something.  And so I was.  Even when you manually place all your intensity cues, the composition parameter still affects the ending.  When I set it back from 1 to 4, I was able to match the original mix.

Pixy, time is still wrong. Instead of being 3 hours ahead, now we're 1 hour behind.
