Avid & Abbey Road Studios Launch Global Song Competition

Just in case you needed an additional incentive to produce music, here’s a good one: Avid, the makers of Pro Tools, has teamed up with Abbey Road Studios to launch a song competition.

Two prize packages will be handed out in the Abbey Road Studios and Avid Song Contest. Three winners of the “Judges Choice” will receive a package where a track of their choice is mixed and mastered online by Abbey Road Studios, plus an Avid Pro Tools|HD Native system. Fans worldwide can also vote for their favorite song, with the winning entrant receiving an Avid Mbox audio interface with Pro Tools 10 software.

The hallowed halls of Abbey Road await your creations.
