Extreme Music Launches Customix

THE INDUSTRY'S FIRST CLOUD-BASED REMIX TOOL

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Music, the production music library arm of Sony/ATV Music Publishing, today launched Customix, an innovative cloud-based music editing tool that allows professional music users to manipulate tracks within Extreme's catalog to create custom arrangements and mixes. Powered by UJAM's proprietary SongCruncher technology Customix is simple to use and empowers video editors and music supervisors to emulate the skills of a professional arranger or mix engineer.

Music supervisors have long requested that production music be made available in stems (separated elements such as drums, guitar, bass, vocals, etc.) in order to modify tracks. Pulling from Extreme Music's broad catalog, supervisors can now surgically craft custom versions tailored to a specific scene. Customix core features allow users to change tempo without changing pitch, adjust the volume of each instrument, mute or solo specific song sections and modify, or even create, an entirely new arrangement to match the length or pace of a scene while intelligently keeping the musical arc intact.

"We understand our clients are in the trenches every day and need not only amazing music, but also flexibility. Customix essentially gives users thousands of new variations dramatically adding to their creative arsenal," said Russell Emanuel, co-founder and CEO, Extreme Music. "Extreme users expect us to push boundaries and we make it our mission not to disappoint."

"To be able to create my own mix on the fly, plus the ability to change the speed of a track, makes my life so much easier. This really is a giant leap forward and seriously changes the game," said Kevin Edelman, Music Supervisor, Metalman Music (Homeland, Bones, Criminal Minds, Elementary, Go On).

UJAM CEO Axel Hensen notes, "We are incredibly proud to have worked with Extreme Music as our launch partner – we couldn't have found a better showcase."

The release of Customix again further cements Extreme Music's position as trail blazing innovators for the production music arena.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, David Tishgart, Director of Product Marketing ...
Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT depl...
The pace of innovation, vendor lock-in, production sustainability, cost-effectiveness, and managing risk… In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dan Choquette, Founder of RackN, discussed how CIOs are challenged finding the balance of finding the right tools, technology and operational model that serves the business the best. He also discussed how clouds, open source software and infrastructure solutions have benefits but also drawbacks and how workload and operational portability between vendors an...
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically.
