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.

Enterprises are turning to the hybrid cloud to drive greater scalability and cost-effectiveness. But enterprises should beware as the definition of “policy” varies wildly.

In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Derek Collison, founder and CEO of Apcera, explained what policy is, he showed how policy should be arch...

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
Countless business models have spawned from the IaaS industry. Resell Web hosting, blogs, public cloud, and on and on. With the overwhelming amount of tools available to us, it's sometimes easy to overlook that many of them are just new skins of resources we've had for a long time. In his General Session at 16th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, broke down what we've got to work with and discuss the benefits and pitfalls to discover how we can best use them to d...
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion. In fact, there are 8.6 million data centers worldwide, the reality is many small and medium sized business have server closets and colocation footprints filled with servers and storage gear. While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...
The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time.
