Aiming to enable greater flexibility for music supervisors, Extreme Music, the production library arm of Sony/ATV Music Publishing, is rolling out a cloud-based music editing service dubbed Customix.
Using UJAM’s SongCruncher tool, the service will make catalog tracks available in stem form — separated into individual instrumental tracks — allowing supervisors to remix and customize songs to fit scenes, as well as more easily shift pitches and manipulate tempos.
For today’s launch, around 400 of the service’s tracks have already been formatted for Customix, and reps said they anticipate the majority of new releases will be ingested into the system.
“We understand our clients are in the trenches every day and need not only amazing music but also flexibility,” said Extreme topper Russell Emanuel. “Customix essentially gives users thousands of new variations, dramatically adding to their creative arsenal.”
