The Song:

In Multi-platinum mixing and mastering engineer Luca Pretolesi’s video featuring the worldwide smash hit “Light It Up (Remix)” from Major Lazer, Luca took us step by step through his entire mixing and mastering process.

Now it’s your turn to sit in Luca Pretolesi’s seat and mix the “Light It Up” remix from Major Lazer and Diplo for a chance to win one of three massive prize packages from our friends at Quantica Audio and Studio DMI.

Winners will be announced in our special Livestream event with Luca Pretolesi, happening Friday, May 1st at 3pm EST, where you will get to ask him all of your questions about his career, working with artists like Major Lazer, Diplo, J Balvin, Prince Royce, David Guetta, and Morgan Page as well as anything else you can think of!

 

The Prize:

Modula is a touchscreen–friendly virtual mixer with world-class analog sound and ultimate in-the-box workflow.

Modula recreates the closest experience possible to mixing on a real analog desk, keeping the fun of it and removing all the hassle – and cost – of setting up a whole physical system.

It lets you easily organize and visualize your Acustica plugins as channel strips (skins) in a single ‘hub application’ that seamlessly integrates with major DAWs like Pro Tools®, Logic Pro®, Ableton Live™, Presonus Studio One™ and many others.

All you have to do is insert the Modula plugin on the tracks of your DAW you want to mix and you will see the relative chances strip appear inside the Modula frame window. Easy as that. With every strip offering a choice of preamp, EQ and dynamics emulations, you can enjoy both a convincingly ‘analog’ sound and a speedy, intuitive analog-style workflow.

 

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.

  • Upload your mix by 11:59pm EDT April 27th, 2020
  • 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!
