New app allows music fans to mix their own sound at live shows for some reason

The problem with people today is that they all think they can do everything better than people who’ve actually trained for years to do said things. And so welcome one and all to the new live music platform PEEX, which allows people to create their own five channel mix of gigs and concerts.

Using PEEX’s own wearable tech – a pair of specially adapted earphones – and smartphone app, users can mix their own live sound in real time while in attendance at any participating concert. Those not able to attend, or just keen to try again, or who maybe don’t want to ruin the actual live experience, can download recordings of the show post-event and play around with the sound on them instead.

Elton John fans will be able to try the tech out at his upcoming farewell shows, and the service launches with five previously unreleased John concert recordings in its download store.

“Throughout my 50 year career, playing live has always been so important to me”, says John. “I am passionate about giving my fans my best possible performance and making sure they get the best possible experience. Over the last three years I’ve been working with the talented team at PEEX, who have developed an incredible new technology that will revolutionise the way fans listen to live music. Make sure you check it out”.

I’d add to that, please ignore Elton John. Don’t use this thing. It sounds like the absolute fucking worst. If you really must check it out, you’ll find the PEEX website here.
