Seattle, WA (January 24, 2007)–Kagi Media, producers of “Mix It Like A Record,” the interactive mixing course authored by Grammy-winning engineer, mixer and producer Charles Dye, together with plug-in developer DUY, are sponsoring a contest in which three winners will receive a copy of the “Mix It Like A Record” mixing course and DUY’s Global Bundle.
The interactive mixing course teaches the secrets of mixing with Pro Tools. Leading industry professionals, pro audio critics, top educators, authors and users all agree, “Mix It Like A Record” is an effective and time efficient way to learn the elusive skill of mixing.
DUY’s Global Bundle is a potent combination of six high-definition sound sculpting tools: ReDSPider–an entire plug-in bundle in a single plug; DaD Tape–physically models analog tape machines; DaD Valve–physically models classic tubes; DUY Shape–a 3-band spectral and dynamic enhancer; DUY Wide–widens stereo image by placing sounds outside the speakers; and Max DUY–maximizes level with zero harmonic distortion.
“It’s hard to say too much about the impact DUY’s plugs have had on my sound,” said Dye. “Valve, Tape and Wide are three of my all-time favorites. Simply put, Valve and Tape’s warmth and phatness have made in-the-box mixing possible. And ReDSPider is a monster plug, pulling off effects unlike any other. I simply don’t start mixing without DUY.”
To enter the contest, go to www.harddisklife.com and click on “Contest.” Watch the two streaming movies about DUY’s plug-ins. They contain example chapters from “Mix It Like A Record,” and a tutorial on DUY’s Global Bundle taught by Xavi Sanchez-Roemmele of DUY.
