This is the Wizard gallery, where artists and fans alike can see all the Remix Wizards that are in play across the web. Check out the various Wizards by clicking preview. When you find one you like, get your remix on by clicking on "MixMaker" (to make remixes in our online sequencer) or by downloading the stems (to use in your desktop music software). When you've finished the remix, make sure to publish it to the appropriate Wizard so that others can listen to it, vote on it, and share it!
Artists, if you want to make your own Wizard, sign-up, and the following pages will take you through the setup process. First, you’ll be taken to this page. Here, input general information about your Wizard, which your fans will be able to see when they access it. You can provide a title for the Wizard (the song title, or any other title you feel appropriate), your band/artist name, your band/artist website, as well as the tempo and key of the stems. You can also give your fans an intro to your Wizard, or tell them anything else they may want to know in connection with your remix promotion.
At the bottom of the page, select how you want your fans to download the stems. If you require them to be purchased, provide a public link to your retailer of choice (AmieStreet, Itunes, Snocap, Amazon, etc). Or, if you want to hook your fans up with free downloads of your stems, we provide that service to you for free.
Click on the advanced options to set start and end dates for the Wizard, downloading stems, submitting remixes, voting, and playing.
Here, you create the legal agreement between you and your remixers that covers the rights to the stems and resulting remixes. This agreement is entirely up to you and completely customizable. For convenience, we have provided sample language for an “artist rights reserved” agreement, as well as the various US Creative Commons licenses. The language in these agreements is editable by you, just click in the text field. You also have the option of selected a blank field where you can write your own agreement.
This is where you upload stems for your fans to use in the remix. The stems of a song are the vocal track, guitar track, drum track, etc. You should upload any and all stems you want fans to use in their remixes. You can either upload WAV files or MP3s. To make things easier, consolidate the stems in your recording software so you can easily map them out in the MixMaker. You can also upload the original song, so that fans can hear it before remixing it.
This is the MixMaker – our online sequencer. When fans click on “MixMaker” on your Wizard they will be able to access a MixMaker loaded with your stems. When setting up your Wizard, you can arrange the stems to recreate the song in the MixMaker. The message box will give you tips when you hover over the various editing tools. When you are done sequencing your song, click “publish” to post it to the Wizard for fans to experience it.
The design of your Wizard is completely customizable. Here, you can change its size, and add various layers by adding rectangles (which can be moved around). Click “show background only” to make designing easier. Click “clear all rectangles” to start with a blank canvas. You can change the color/import an image for the background as well as for every rectangle you add. For all images, you can tile them, scale them to fit, and change the transparency. Click on “image attributes” or “rectangle attributes” to change the image/rectangle size and position. Or, move/change the size of the image/rectangle around with your mouse.
Here, you can preview what the Wizard looks like before launching it. There are two views that show you what it looks like with and without remixes submitted. If you don’t like the way it looks, go back and redesign it!
This is where you deploy you Wizard. Select where you want your Wizard to go (click on the various options provided), or copy and paste the embed code to your website of choice.
This is where you can see all the Wizards you’ve made, including ones you’ve launched and ones you’re waiting to deploy. If you’ve already deployed the Wizard, you can freshen it up by changing the design of it; then, you’ll have to redeploy the Wizard (this won’t effect the remixes that have already been submitted). If you want to stop a deployed Wizard, click stop. If you haven’t launched the Wizard, you can edit the design, the stems involved, the license agreement, etc.
