Re:MIX

mixed-mode CD tracklist

Article from The Mix, June 1995

What's on the CD and CD-ROM



About RE:MIX



RE:MIX combines normal CD audio with software readable by a computer's or sampler's CD-ROM drive. The software will not harm your CD player, but it may make an unpleasant sound. So if you value your speakers, don't play track 1! Most modern CD-ROM drives can also play audio CDs, so computer users get the best of both worlds. And don't worry about compatibility. Your CD-ROM drive — Mac, PC or Atari will simply recognise compatible files and allow you to open only those files.



Software section



1

ATARI SOFTWARE


525 version 2
Whip sounds from PCs, Macs, and Amigas with the latest version of this shareware sample convertor. Runs on any Atari (ST, TT and Falcon), in any resolution higher than 640 x 200.

Dream Sequences
Spice up Roger's sequencing tutorial with these MIDI fiddles.

Samples
Another fine collection of samples in *.AVR and *.SPL format.

Take 500
Get your TG500 into shape with this shareware editor/librarian from Yamaha. Not Falcon compatible.

Twiddly Bits
A few try-before-you-buy snippets from the Twiddly Bits (volume 4) disk, to improve your rhythm programming.

MAC SOFTWARE


VL1 Editor
An organiser to keep control of your virtual synthesising.

Unison
Make yourself some interesting sounds, and then save them as samples.

Samples
Some more samples for Mac owners. This month they're saved as *.SND files, so you only have to double-click on them to try them out.

Dream Sequences
See ATARI section

Twiddly Bits
See ATARI section

PC SOFTWARE


Cakewalk Express
Entry-level sequencing with bells on. See the guide in Toolbox on how to install this demo version onto your hard drive.

PVI Canvas
THE MIX goes librarian-mad this month, with another editor. This time it's for the ever-popular sound canvas range of sound modules. This program can be run straight from the CD-ROM. See Toolbox for a full installation guide.

Noteworthy
Scribble your scores down with DOS. This is the shareware version; registered users get a completely unrestricted version, so send in your cash if you use it.

Samples
A humble collection of samples in *.WAV format. If you get bored enough, use them as system sounds.

Twiddly Bits

PKUNZIP.EXE
In case you missed it last month, here's a copy of PKUNZIP, with which to decompress files with a *.ZIP extension.
