ShapeMix has a simple vision: Unlock Music. The origin of ShapeMix came from a simple idea – rethink the way music is mixed and produced so that anyone can do it. That simple idea led to the development of groundbreaking new application and ShapeMix has now blossomed into revolutionary new platform to Unlock Music for everyone.
Initially launched as an app for iPhone and iPad in 2011, ShapeMix for the first time allowed anyone to remix, mash-up, arrange, and add effects to master recordings of music with a simple tool on the world’s most popular mobile devices. Also in 2011, ShapeMix opened the first of its kind music marketplace offering songs from major music publishers for purchase in stem format – meaning you can take the vocal track from one song and drop it into a new mix with guitar and drums from another song, then add a backbeat from a third song and so on.
This was the first step in our vision to unlock music – breaking apart the components of songs and providing them to anyone, along with a simple, yet powerful tool to create new music. Next is unlocking how this music is shared and how new, talented producers, DJs and vocalists are discovered.
ShapeMix’s new Facebook app does just that. Launched in December 2011, ShapeMix ties its groundbreaking iOS creation tools directly to a massive Facebook experience, allowing the entire music loving world to participate in the discovery of new talent, to engage on a deeper level with artists you already love, and to participate directly in the creative process with thousands of fans artists around the globe.
