Mixblendr -- the first web open source audio editing and remixing software -- has just launched. I have a special interest because from afar I've watched this new application being developed:
Mixblendr is open source software that lets you create interactive music experiences on your website. Mixblendr lets you provide your users with audio tracks of your choosing, which they can remix and mashup using our powerful and easy-to-use audio application.Check out Mixblendr now.
These remixes can then be published to a competition to be voted on by the audience of your site. Mixblendr is an all-in one solution for creating remix competitions, interactive music experiences, or online collaborations tools.
Mixblendr was founded by Sandy Parakilas and Jon Nathanson. Sandy is a musician and recording engineer who was looking for a better way to make remixes and mashups and share them with his friends. Jon was an executive at Fox Mobile Studios.
They collaborated with former Java Sound lead developer/code ninja Florian Bömers, who developed the Mixblendr audio applet, with an interface designed by Sandy.
