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 1 winner.

  • Upload your mix by 11:59pm EDT November 3rd, 2021
  • 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!
