Hark! The Herald Angels U-Sing-It!
class=img_thumbleft> Press release of the day: "Just released this week, 'U-Sing-It' -- an innovative CD release that lets buyers create their own versions of holiday songs to share with friends and family, powered by UmixIt's remixing technology -- is already a hit, an impressive feat given the 51 shopping days still left until Christmas.
"Released on November 1st, U-Sing-It has already shipped over 48,000 copies, and in just its first day out prompted re-orders of an additional 20,000 units. Critics are raving about how easy U-Sing-It makes it to 'sing holiday songs on top of a professional backup track, ''American Idol'-style' according to the Boston Globe, or 'remix your voice, as well as the instruments, Diddy-style.'
"The collection of favorites includes classics like 'Auld Lang Syne,' 'White Christmas,' and 'Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer,' each one enabled with UmixIt's fully functional and easy to use audio software, which comes complete right on the disc. 'U-Sing-It' makes possible 'virtual Christmas caroling' on a global scale, as the UmixIt software enables anyone who buys the collection to add their own vocals to a full backing band of pros, and mix and remix their voice and the instruments as they please.
"Buyers can record their own version at midnight and email it around the world by morning, burn their own CD of favorites to give as a gift, or just share with friends and family in their own home. The success of the new project (the first full-length title designed and created entirely by UmixIt) has already prompted a follow up, as the company has recently started work on a new collection of classic love songs- tentatively titled 'Romance' - slated for release January 3rd, just in time for Valentines day.
"UmixIt has garnered attention for their innovative technology that delivers a song on 8 to 16 discrete channels complete with the software to mix and edit the tracks together, bundled with popular releases at no additional cost. Recent and upcoming releases include the newest releases from David Banner and Aerosmith, and the upcoming Billy Joel boxed set.
