PreSonus, makers of Studio One have announced a new service they have partnered with Mix The Music, a new online store specialising in multitrack audio files that enable users to legally download and re-mix songs using the original multitrack files as recorded by major artists and film/game composers. This is brilliant for aspiring or experienced engineers to practice their mixing skills, or practice instrumental skills by re-recording parts.
Covering a wide range of styles including contemporary and classic hits, film scores, video game scores, and more, the content will continue to grow with more and more songs from top artists across all genres.
New .multitrack Format
Major labels such as Universal Music Group, Sony, Paramount, EA, and more have provided multitrack files in a new .multitrack audio format developed exclusively for use in Studio One Prime, Artist, and Professional editions. Mix The Music makes it easy and secure to access this never-before-available content and now any Studio One user can listen to, explore, mix, and remix multitracks from major label artists!
Who Are Multitracks For?
You! Music fans, amateur and professional audio engineers, DJs, teachers, and students can all benefit from multitrack audio. Once downloaded, you have independent access to the original individual recorded instrument and vocal tracks like isolated bass, drums, guitar, keys, and more. This lets you:
Hear How Classic Recordings Were Created
Hear every nuance of your favourite performer’s instrumental techniques. Play along with legendary artists with exactly the mix that works for you. Even record your own parts alongside the heaviest hitters in the music world.
Personal Use Only
The music licenses that have been agreed with the record companies mean that you cannot release your own re-mixes of songs from Mix The Music and sell them? This content is available exclusively for personal use and not for commercial or public release. This is all about your personal learning and enjoyment.
What If I Do Not Own Studio One?
As Mix The Music supports the free version - Studio One Prime, just download and install Studio One Prime and away you go.
When Will It Be Available?
Mix The Music will launch in October.
