The first project published in this format is OK Go’s “I Won’t Let You Down” from their newly released studio album Hungry Ghosts. The track was produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83, Depeche Mode) in Los Angeles.
OK Go invites music producers to put their spin on the track in their DAW of choice, and the best ones will be featured on OK Go’s social media channels. The track can be heard and pulled for remixing at http://blend.io/okgo
Blend members have long been able to share and store their music projects in their native format such as in Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Garageband, Pro Tools, Reason, FL Studio, and Native Instruments Maschine. As of today, users can also publish (learn how) and pull stem-only projects to collaborate with other producers regardless of what their DAW of choice may be.
Once the user has pulled a stem project he can save his update directly to Blend. When the file is pulled, Blend will automatically detect the correct DAW the collaborator is using. Lastly, this new feature will allow musicians to keep their collaborators informed of publishing updates.
The collaboration with OK Go is another milestone in Blend’s endeavors to connect known artists and Blend members to create new music.
