South Windsor, CT (July 27, 2012)—Telefunken Elektroakustik will hold its first Telefunken Mix Olympics starting today (July 27) to coincide with the start of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, England.
The event will feature three mixing events, with winners receiving Gold, Silver and Bronze M80 dynamic microphones.
Participants in the event will be able to download audio files on July 27 from three multi-track sessions provided by Telefunken in 44.1k/24-bit format. Each of these tracks will be used during the main events of the Telefunken Mix Olympics. The tracks to be mixed are: “You & Me & The Radio” by Human Radio; “For I Am The Moon” by Sunshine Garcia Band; and “Girl with Glasses” by O.A.K. Team.
Each song was recorded multiple times using a variation of Telefunken microphones and participants in the mixing event can listen and choose which recording he or she finds most pleasing for the competition. As mixes are submitted, they will be shared on Telefunken’s Soundcloud page.
The Telefunken Mix Olympics will begin July 27 and end August 19 shortly after the closing ceremony for the London Olympics. Winners for the Mix Olympics will be announced August 20.
