Thank you ever so much for visiting the Mix Challenge Patreon page.


Who are we?


The Mix Challenge is a community page that hosts songwriting, audio editing / mixing and audio mastering competitions. The concept is to have access to raw audio material (multi tracks) provided by a "virtual client"; while participants have a certain amount of days to overhaul these files and create a suitable mixdown to the best of their skills. One of the aspects of this trial is to document what the songwriter / audio engineer (the participant) did, so that community members can learn from each other.

You can find more about the Mix Challenge on the official homepage: www.mix-challenge.com




Why Patreon?

There was never a request for any money / backing, neither were advertisements contemplated. However, since the move to a dedicated place in April 2017, there has been an exponential growth of the Mix Challenge community. With the growth come expenses to keep gears in motion.

This Patreon Account offers you to voluntarily support the Mix Challenge (and the work resolving around it) on a monthly basis. This is not a pay-wall system or anything. Patreon donations are completely optional and we (the staff) are asking you to only pledge if you feel comfortable with it, and have the means to do so. You can decide the amount of the donations yourself, you can back out any time. Patreon is just one of many possible ways to help support the Mix Challenge.


What are the funds used for?

The donations are to be primarily used to cover expenses associated with keeping this particular community, and it's various challenges, running. Those being: server fees, proportional ISP traffic fees, fees for better Social Media automation and occasional design work. All in all, expenses of currently about 545EUR / year (roughtly 645USD / year, or 60USD / month - considering all handling and exchange rate fees via Patreon).

Everything higher than that, can either be used as seed capital for the follow up year, or can be considered "bonus payment" instead of currently working for free out of very limited spare time. This in turn would mean, putting more time aside for handling the Mix Challenge community and everything revolving around it (e.g. finding new and exciting license sponsors, better user interaction, full time challenge handling).

High-tier backers also get some unique bonuses that others won't. For example: a Skype chat with the Mix Challenge host / CTO Roland Löhlbach (Patreon exclusive).



If you consider helping the Mix Challenge via Patreon, I (the CTO) can't thank you enough for that. Thank you so much for keeping the gears running.
