Make your own remixes at YourSpins.

YourSpins is a social network site dedicated to those who love remixes. To start remixing your music, you'll need to download a plug-in for your media player (Windows Media Player, Quicktime and WinAmp are currently supported) as remixes are created from within the player. From there you'll be able to download the completed song with all the associated parts from the site to start your remix.

YourSpins has worked together with musicians to provide you with tracks that you can play with. This means each songs will have multiple instruments for you to choose from. And because all the tracks are provided, you won't run into issues of certain parts not being in tempo or instruments playing in the wrong key.

When you're done, the completed remix will be saved to your YourSpins page where others can listen to your mix. Points are given out depending on how well your mixes are received. Overall points are grouped in levels ranging from "Noob" on up to the "Omnipotent Grand Overlord".

If you want to give it a "spin" without downloading any plug-ins, you can try out their ecards service. While it doesn't give you the full experience it does give you a fun taste of remixing.
