U-MYX - mix the music yourself

A big item in tonight's UK Channel 4 news boradcast was the release of MUSE's new single with "U-MYX" mixing software, a "world first", allowing the customer to remix the music themselves, creating personal permutations that can be exported and shared, even on iPods. The news show then donated generous free publicity including interviews with the inventor, demos etc.

I have, however, somewhere at the back of my mind a lingering thought that I've seen this or a similar customer-remix-thing before somewhere. I just can't remember where - does it ring a bell for you? Prior art? Give a shout in the comments...

You are right,
TrustMedia ( ) has already done something close with Prodigy ( ) or Airlock ( ).

The differences are:

- With U-Mix, you need the CD.
- TrustMedia concept is fully online.

- With U-Mix, the user mixes the track.
- With TrustMedia, the artist defines different combinable possibilities and let the user choose which one he prefers on a designed interface. The generation of the track is done on a server with professional equipment and send as an online package with a unique artwork.

BTW Iím founder of TrustMedia.

Bit late, but "Free All Angels" by Ash had a video mixer on the ECD.

i have to beg your pardon sir, i just copied the .exe file and the .myx file onto my hard drive, so therefore the original cd isn't required to be in your computer and you can export to real .wav files as well as the myx file.
