Indiloop “Mix for the Masses” contest


If you’ve got a good ear and enjoy playing around with music tools, check out Indiloop. Now’s a great time to sign up, as Indiloop’s having a remix contest, with a top prize of $2000. The task: using Indiloop, create a remix using ‘stems’ from three artists.

No need to buy anything. Signing up to Indiloop is free. All the raw musical material is available on Indiloop. It’s all browser based, so no special software required, just a reasonably fast PC or Mac, and a web browser that supports Flash.

My connection to Indiloop: I developed the Flash real-time audio signal processing “engine” that does all the pitch-shifting, time-stretching, and mixing. Basically the fiddly behind-the-scenes code that makes real-time remixing possible in a web browser. A team of very talented folks at Indiloop HQ in Vancouver does everything else – UI design, web and database programming, support, music licensing, legal, finance. Little startups with big ambitions are always team efforts!
