The Song:

In our recent full length tutorial: “Brian Moncarz Mixing Our Lady Peace”, we watched as Brian recalled the session from the hit single by Our Lady PeaceDrop Me In The Water” and learned how Brian works on each element of the mix with a clear goal in mind, his parallel processing techniques, and creative uses of many flavors of distortion throughout the entire track.

Now it's your turn to sit in Brian Moncarz's chair and mix "Drop Me In The Water" from Our Lady Peace for a chance to win one of three prize packages from Soundtoys.

Soundtoys audio effects bring color, character, and creativity to your digital music studio with plug-ins that merge the sound and vibe of classic analog gear with modern and musical twists.

How To Win:

Mixing is an art form, the winner will be chosen based on the judges' TASTE. There are no absolute rules. Don't be upset if your version of this mix does not make it to the top.

The pureMix team will listen to ALL of the mixes and pick 3 winners.

Here are a couple tangible suggestions to carve your way to be the potential winning mixer:

  • Upload your mix before 11:59pm EST June 25th, 2019
  • Make sure you send in the right song (Don't laugh, it happens quite a bit)
  • Don't send the mentor's original mix hoping that we won't notice (Don't laugh, it happens quite a bit)
  • Make sure the vocal/drums/bass/guitars are not muted in your mix. Especially the lead vocal. (We think the production was quite nice and would love to hear all of it.)
  • Don't change the tempo/key/arrangement. This is a MIXING challenge.
  • Louder is not better, we level match everything before we listen (You know who you are)
  • Consider using the pureMix LUFS Analyzer to help reach a reasonable final level!

Good luck!


This contest is now over. We are currently listening to all those mixes. We'll be right back with you shortly and everybody will be contacted directly by email. Thanks for your patience.
