Mix Me In2 Taylor Swift is very easy to use. Watch the video below for a brief tutorial.
All songs available for purchase were authorized and approved by Taylor Swift, Big Machine Records, 13 Management and Sony/ATV Music Publishing. The Original Mix of every song was created directly from the Original recordings as they appeared on the albums “Fearless” and “Taylor Swift.” So yes, that's Taylor singing.
One of the coolest things about Mix Me In is its ability to record YOU as part of the band. Doing this is easy. When you select a song to listen to, the song is broken up into numerous "tracks", or pieces. With Mix Me In you have the power to record yourself into any of these individual tracks. Do you play a mean guitar? No problem. Want to sing the backup vocal? You can do that too, and we'll Mix you right in! Simply click on the character associated with the track you want to record. A red button will appear in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. Click this red button to enter the Recording mode. From here, a giant Start button will begin the song and you can start your jam session.
iPod Touch users absolutely must have a microphone, preferably the official Apple earbuds with microphone combo. We highly recommend that iPhone users do the same.
Mix Me In not only allows you to mix yourself into your favorite songs, it also allows you to share your custom creations with friends, family members, and the Taylor Nation! Plus it's really easy. When you have your song sounding exactly the way you want it, just click the Share button. All we need to get you registered and posting is your email address and a title for your song. You should receive an email from us with further instructions as needed.
Please note that if you do not want your song posted online for the community to see, simply log onto the site as one of the emails instructs, click the song you've submitted, click Edit, and then select the Privacy option. When this is selected, only people who you share the link to will be able to see your song.
We recommend you plug your instrument directly into your iPhone or iPod Touch with a Guitarbud cord by PRS and record through the app. A Google search will provide a number of retailers where you can buy the cord.
