Waves and AudioFanzine Present CLA Song Competition

—Contest offers a chance to have an artist’s song mixed by Chris Lord-Alge, one of today’s most in-demand engineers—

KNOXVILLE, TN, March 14, 2012 Waves Audio, the industry-leading developer of professional audio digital signal processing technologies, and AudioFanzine, an online magazine catering to musicians as well as sound engineers, home-studio recording enthusiasts, and audio engineers, have teamed up to present the CLA Song Competition. The contest gives entrants a chance to have their song mixed by multi-GRAMMY® Award-winner Chris Lord-Alge (CLA), one of today’s most in-demand engineers. Lord-Alge’s credits include such acts as Green Day, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews Band and Daughtry, to name only a few. Participants can enter through the Waves website or Facebook page.

To enter, artists should submit their best song, and Lord-Alge will pick the winner himself. He will make his choice based on the overall presentation: song, image and performance. The Top 25 finalists will be chosen by public voting; one lucky (and talented) artist or band will have their song mixed by none other than CLA himself.

“I am super-excited about this. I am all about finding the best song and giving it the best mix,” stated Lord-Alge. “What I’m looking for is the best possible song with the best structure, getting to the point and showing me the lyrics and melody. So it’s not going to be about how good your mix is, it’s going to be how good your song is, because the mixing part is going to be on me. A good song to me gets its point across in three minutes, four minutes max, so make sure that what you send me is the best arrangement you can come up with for your song. I look forward to bringing this competition to a close with a great mix for Waves, AudioFanzine and the winner of the competition. Good luck.”
