SSEYO miniMIXA Allows for Mobile Music Making


The SSEYO miniMIXA for Microsoft Windows Mobile-based devices is a utility for anyone looking to record audio ringtones, be a mobile DJ or just have fun playing around with your tunes. MiniMIXA features a multi-audio channel mixer and recording studio with a wide range of sound effects per-channel. Midi and SKM music you create can be stored on your phone as a unique ringtone or sent to friends via MMS.

SSEYO MIXApaks can include custom background imagery that displays each time a mix is created from the pack, so providing strong visual branding opportunities for content partners.

Tim Cole, co-founder of SSEYO and now Head of Audio at Tao Group said, “Try jamming with two or more phones featuring SSEYO miniMIXA and you will understand why the mobile phone is the next electric guitar! That SSEYO can bring far-reaching and innovative music applications like this to the mainstream mobile market to underpin significant new value chain opportunities is thanks to Tao and Tao’s amazing partners.”

“It is fantastic to see innovative and exciting applications like the SSEYO miniMIXA enabling users of Windows Mobile-based devices to do so much more with their Smartphones and Pocket PCs,” offered Simeon Payne, European Product Marketing Manager for Microsoft’s Mobile and Embedded Devices Division. “Enabling budding DJs to mix music wherever they are in the world mean that they can capture innovative ideas as soon as they pop into their head. From mixing music to managing travel arrangements; the rich applications developed by our partners for the Windows Mobile platform offer an indication of the ways in which software is enabling people to do more with their mobile devices today.”

ISEA2004 takes place between 14th and 22nd August. During this week the Baltic Sea becomes the center of electronic music, new media research, art and design. ISEA2004 is the 12th Symposium on Electronic Arts, organised for the first time in two capital cities and a ferry between them.
