The Continuum Music Studio's First Ever Remix/Mixing/Mastering Contest


There are many companies who offer one of two kinds of contests these days: The Remix Contest and The Mixing Contest. We feel that those contests can be limited to the amount of musicians, artists, producers, and engineers who enter because of one simple fact: Not all mixing engineers are remixers, and not all musicians are mastering engineers. So we thought, why do ONE contest when we can do SEVERAL together to give EVERYONE in ALL GENRES a great opportunity to have some fun, learn new skills, be eligible to win awesome prizes and get their music to be heard on bigger channels! Though this may not be a "revolution" to the world of contests for music producers we feel like it is something that has never been done before until now! How cool is that!? But wait, there is more....

The Briefing

This one contest is essentially THREE contests in one! This contest is called The Continuum Creative Contest and welcomes musicians, recording artists, music producers, and audio engineers to enter. The contests offers: Song Writing/Composing/Remixing, Mixing, and.... (drumroll please) Mastering!

Here is the best part, you can choose one aspect of the contest to take part in or you can do all the parts and be eligible for more prizes! We encourage all entrants to sign up and participate in the full contest to gain the most experience and be eligible for the full range of stellar prizes! The name of the game is fun and we want to encourage you to be as creative as you can! There are no limits to what is possible, so be yourself and submit something to expresses you as the unique and creative individual that you are! And, yes... we mean everyone! We want people of all genres, cultures, and backgrounds to enter this contest.

Registration will be open for the contest during Fall 2017. All entrants (just for signing up) will receive free gifts from us! Our gifts include Serem Sound Packs for multiple genres, plugin vouchers for mixing and mastering tools, an extensive eBook, and more. Check in often as we have much more information coming!
