Sunnyvale, CA (September 27, 2006)–The mixingbox has teamed up with audioMIDI.com to offer four new mixing services for music and post production. Musicians can submit projects created using any of the major DAW applications to the mixingbox, and receive completed mixes, vocal correction and drum editing done by professional engineers. The mixingbox services include “Session Mix Complete,” “Session Mix,” “Vocal Fix” and “Drum Fix.”
Unlike other mixing services, the mixingbox not only delivers a bounced version of the final project/song, but also returns the entire Pro Tools session-including the individual tracks and stems-so that end-users can open the session and learn from the mixingbox experience.
“Many end-users don’t even know where to find a professional to help them mix and improve their music,” said Scott Church, co-founder of the mixingbox. “If they do find someone, issues such as schedule and price make working with a producer like buying a car, except even worse-many top-notch engineers won’t take on the end-user who may not be at their level. This fear of rejection, plus the hassle of negotiating, is more than many musicians are willing to undergo. When you buy one of our products/services, at a flat-rate for one project/song, you get a team of professionals working to take that project/song to the highest level. Each team member of the mixingbox does what they do best, elevating the quality of the entire project/song.”
The mixingbox accepts projects from most major DAW applications, including Pro Tools, Logic, Nuendo/Cubase, Digital Performer, Live and Reason. The entire project is rebuilt in Pro Tools HD. Mixingbox engineers work with McDSP and Sound Toys plug-ins, which are available in both TDM and RTAS versions so that end-users can open the session on a Pro Tools system and learn from their team of professionals.
The following is a run-down of the mixingbox services:
-“Session MIX COMPLETE” is a bundle that includes session MIX, vocal FIX and drum FIX enabling end-users to submit their projects to the mixingbox for professional mixing complete with editing of drum and vocal tracks. This service is available for $899.
-“Session MIX” provides end-users with a professional mix of their projects. By using a team of engineers, the mixingbox is able to match the right engineers to the project. This service is priced at $699.
