Waves has announced the JJP Mixing Competition, giving aspiring producers, engineers and musicians the chance to have their mix heard by the GRAMMY-winning producer himself. Here’s all the details that Waves have sent us:
On the contest page at the Waves website, users can submit their best mix using JJP Artist Signature Collection plugins (e.g. JJP Vocals, JJP Drums, etc.), and Puig will personally pick the winner. He’ll be basing his decision on the overall sound of the mix; of course, having a great song certainly won’t hurt contestants’ chances.
Those who do not already own the JJP Artist Signature Collection can download the JJP Artist Signature Collection demo and use it for the competition. Those who have already demoed it can call Waves Tech Support at +1-865-909-9200 ext. 1, and receive a special 7-day demo extension.
The winner will receive their choice of the JJP Artist Signature Collection or the JJP Analog Legends bundle, and the top three songs will be streamed on the Waves website for all to hear.
JJP Mixing Competition guidelines:
- 1. Entrants must use JJP Artist Signature Collection plugins somewhere in their mix — the more the better.
- 2. Users will also need to describe how they used them: Which plugins, on which tracks, which presets, plus any other info they feel is important.
- 3. Submissions should be in mp3 format, maximum file size 10 MB.
- 4. Entrants must own all the rights to the song they submit.
- 5. The winner will be required to send Waves the original session.
- 6. No more than two entries per person.
The JJP Mixing Competition will run until December 15, 2010, and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter.
