    GearFest Mixing Contest

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Biggest Ever Audio Mixing Contest is ON!

    Over $18K in high end Pro Audio equipment to be distributed to the winners.



    Starting April 16th 2013, the race for mixing the best sounding version of Liza Colby Sound’s
    song ‘Oh Baby’ is on at pureMix.net. The contest is free and is sponsored by the following
    companies : Dangerous Music, Focal Professional, Universal Audio, Blue Microphones,
    Presonus, Lauten Audio, Vovox and Sweetwater.

    Tracked live on stage in front of a rapt audience at Sweetwater’s GearFest 2012 during
    Dangerous Music’s recording seminar, ‘Oh Baby’ will keep contestants on the
    edge of their mixing chairs.

    The contest is completely platform independent: any DAW, any
    platform is welcome. The pureMix.net team and Fab Dupont will pick the 16 winners. Judges
    will focus on mixing skills and taste to pick the winners, not on what equipment was used.

    Prize list, audio stems, and contest instructions are available for download at
    GearFest Mixing Contest | pureMix.net after free registration. As part of the contest
    package, contestants can watch a free video on how the song was recorded, complete with stepby-
    step explanation of every move, courtesy of pureMix.net

    The contest runs between April 16th 2013 and June 1st 2013. Winners will be announced at
    Sweewater’s GearFest 2013 on June 21st, contacted via email and announced on pureMix.net
    homepage.

    Good luck to us all and free feel to discuss the contest, mixes etc. here in this thread. Though keep it clean please!

    Question Download Issues?

    Is anyone else having issues downloading the stems? My browsers (Firefox, Safari on Mac) quit the download before the full file is received. Restarting the download is from the beginning, which then fails again.

    Yeah, me too, multiple browsers, going to try another (faster) connection later, but so far, no dice.
    Might need to break up the files into several smaller sets for downloading.

    All righ guys.
    It seems that everything is back to normal again.
    We added more servers and split the files.
    You should be able to download them without any problem.

    Anybody seen the recording video yet?
