Discover remixes of the music you love
With Legitmix, you can recreate remixes using your own copies of the tracks the remixer samples - with just a few mouse clicks. If you don't have the sampled tracks, Legitmix makes it easy to buy them from iTunes.
Remixers get 70% of the sale of the Legitmix files for their remixes. Sampled artists get paid when you buy iTunes tracks to recreate remixes. You get a legit way to support remixers and the artists they sample.
Remixers identify the original tracks they sampled in their remix.
A “Legitmix file” is created by calculating the binary difference between the remix and its sampled tracks.
Fans can now buy the Legitmix file and can let Legitmix search their music libraries for the sampled track(s) used to make the remix. Legitmix makes it easy to buy any missing tracks from iTunes.
With a simple mouse click, Legitmix recreates the remix using the fan's copies of the original tracks. The recreated remix can now be imported into iTunes.
Legitmix isn't just a track licensing platform, it's also a gigantic self-reinforcing affiliate network for selling new music.…The alternative is the kind of music sharing that already goes on on music blogs, where everything is free and artists get zip.
If you’re a fan, you’ll sleep well knowing that those source artists will get some money, and if you already own the music, you save some cash [on the mixtape you’re seeking to buy.]
Mix creators can sell their mixes via Legitmix. Copyright holders get paid when music is sold via Legitmix's music store and websites receive commissions on sales resulting from their referrals. Is this not a really smart solution to clearance and copyright concerns?
With Legitmix, both remixer and sampled artist get credited and paid, and everything gets worked out with technology, not lawyers and paperwork. That’s what edits and remixes should be about: a partnership between producers and the artists they sample.
It’s not just about remixers getting to sell their work. Or even that the artists we build on get credited and paid. It’s that everyone wins and sample-based producers don’t have to hide. We’re making music of the future. So why not use the technology of the future to release it?
As soon as I heard the concept and the model, I was like, ‘Oh, of course. Why didn’t I think of that?’ It just seemed right. I think there just has to be so much derivative music floating around that is not being monetized. Somebody has to say, ‘Hey let’s monetize this
