ccMixter

We’re big fans of Creative Commons over here at Mixwit. That’s why I’m stoked to announce today that we’ve  integrated ccMixter into our mixmaker. This means you can easily add any track you can find on ccMixter to any of your mixtapes. If you are not familiar with ccMixter, it is a great repository for tracks, remixes and samples, all licensed under Creative Commons. All you need to do is just select ccMixter in the drop down box in the mixmaker. Once your there, try an artist like the Rapture or the Beastie Boys or a genre like “funk”. Super bonus points if you try “bark” 😉

Over the next few months, we’ll be working hard on improving search by continuing to add more services to help you find media around the web. Although, it does makes our life a whole lot easier when people like ccMixter, Seeqpod, and Skreemr have very nice APIs for us to work with. That’s why those are the three sources we have to date, but rest assured there will be more to come. Got a favorite source? Let us know, and you may just see it appear in the near future.

Lastly, in celebration of the upcoming 4th anniversary of the Wired Magazine CD, what more appropriate than a Wired mixtape? 2008 is the year of the mixtape, right? Enjoy!

    Awesomeness incarnate!

    Another source you might find useful is archive.org, which has a gigantic amount of net-native sounds.

    Lucas,

    We’ve got archive.org in our plan to integrate, but as far as I can tell they don’t have an API that will let us query for URLs of tracks. This makes things a bit more difficult for us, but it’s certainly in the works.

    If I’m wrong please correct me. We’d love to make the Internet Archive’s content easily accessible to our users ASAP 🙂

    -Mike
