Ringtone Remixer Brings New Groove to Mobile Phones Wednesday 14 November 2001 PDF Print Anyone can remix a ringtone - it's cool, it's fun, and it's you Bracknell, UK, 14th November 2001 - SSEYO (R), world leader in technologies for billable music content from GSM to 3G, announces today the world's first intelligent ringtone remixer for mobile phones. It is many times more powerful than traditional ringtone composers, which simply let users edit musical scores, and which require a significant degree of musical skill. The SSEYO ringtone remixer instead lets a user easily make a ringtone remix that's close to the original melody, but is personal to them. Ringtones are projected to be the first billion dollar mobile content market in which artists and their fans can participate and interact. SSEYO's Ringtone Remixer application, the first of which features DJ Spuddy, lets music fans easily remix a melody as a ringtone, purchase the remix and then send it to their mobile phone. The ringtone remix always sounds close to the original melody, but is personal to the remixer. The Ringtone Remixer application communicates with the patent pending and licensable SSEYO Koan Ringtone Engine (SKRE), which resides on a server. This intelligent engine creates the melodic variations, based around the user interaction with the interface and a ruleset for the specific melody. Once the remix is created the user can purchase the ringtone through an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system managed by SSEYO's backend partner Salletech, a leader in ringtone and mobile billing infrastructure and suppliers of services to many popular websites. The application supports the creation of enhanced mixes, where the user can choose the sounds and drumkits used. It also enables these mixes to animate the DJ Spuddy character. These optional features require the SSEYO Koan Plugin to be installed, which is a small download. About the release John Tenconi, SSEYO CEO said "Mobile portals are looking for ways to increase their revenues quickly. Ringtone remixing extends the market for ringtones and is fun, community building, revenue generating and fast to roll out. The interface to the ringtone remixer application can be fully customised for any artist, content or brand owner and an application can be rolled out within a week, complete with integrated back end billing." He added, "SSEYO is already in discussions with significant partners about licensing the SKRE for use with branded remixing applications. We expect to make further announcements hot on the heels of this one."
