Our friends at PureMix run regular mixing contests, offering the stems from a well known engineer and artist as learning materials. If you win the contest you can win a prize!
Closing on September 18th 2018, the current competition is brought to you with sponsorship from iZotope and is linked to the video series we featured earlier this year with the legendary Vance Powell tracking Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown.
This contest is open to PureMix Pro members only. You can become a Pro member for $25 a month and access all the great tutorial content on the site as well as accessing discounts, downloads and more.
In the recent Start To Finish Series with Vance Powell and Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, we watched as Vance and the band recorded a great song all the way from plugging the microphones in through to the final print. Along the way, we saw Vance sculpt an intense and exciting mix that tears itself out of the speakers and demands your attention, like in the example below where Vance uses compression to bring guitars forward in the mix.
- Have fun! This is a challenge to put you in the shoes of a pro mixer with deadlines and external pressure. This is not a pageant or a way to flex our collective egos.
- Submit your mix on or before: September 18th, 2018
- The first place prize is the iZotope Music Production Suite and the opportunity to be a guest on the follow-up Q&A Session with Vance Powell, September 20th, 2018.
- Second place wins the iZotope Creative Suite
