View Full Version : Bastard Mixes

Hi friends,

I read somewhere on this site or maybe another site that Bastard Mixes are not allowed. I am not fimiliar with the term so can anyone explain what is a Bastard Mix?

From the FAQ:

13. Remasters are NOT allowed as of June 1, 2011.
While we understand that remastering a recording may improve the listening experience for the user, we also understand that every user has a different set of ears and a different set up for listening to their shows and thus there is no one-size-fits-all remastering that can be done to a recording to improve it for everyone. This rule is not set up to bar a taper from the little tweeks they apply prior to releasing their show, it is set up to bar Joe Blow from coming along and taking a master recording (or even a who-knows-where-it's-from recording) and applying who-knows-what to it because it then sounds better on *their* system to *their* ears and they want to share it. (There may be a couple of exceptions to this rule, but that will be on a case-by-case basis with prior approval from one of our ABT moderators.)

I still don't get it? What is exactly a Bastard Mix?

For example I see you seeded 2 shows here. Joe Blow comes along and wants to fuck with what you seeded, thinking he improved it, than torrenting it himself.
