Seattle, January 18th, 2007 — Kagi Media, producers of Mix It Like A Record, the enormously successful interactive mixing course authored by Grammy-winning engineer, mixer and producer Charles Dye, together with DUY, a leading developer of a broad range of plug-ins for Pro Tools, 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 widely praised interactive mixing course teaches the secrets of mixing with Pro Tools. Leading industry professionals, pro audio critics, top educators, bestselling authors and users all agree, Mix It Like A Record is the best and fastest way to learn the elusive skill of mixing, and now you can win a free copy.
“Mix It Like A Record is the next best thing to an internship with Andy Wallace,” says Future Music magazine. Bart Thurber of EQ says, “It’s like attending a Master Class in the art of mixing modern music.” And Jason Scott Alexander of Remix says, “Covering every instrument and vocal track with razor-sharp theory and practical tips. Passionately delivered and inspirational, MiLaR is highly recommend.”
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,” says 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. Then answer a couple simple questions and submit to win Mix It Like A Record and DUY’s Global Bundle.
The movies are worth the visit alone, but all entrants are also eligible to purchase Mix It Like A Record, which retails for $149, at a special contest discount price of only $99. The contest runs from January 18th until February 31st.
