Aviary acquires web-based audio editor DigiMix
If Aviary is something of a web-based version of PhotoShop, DigiMix is a web-based Pro Tools alternative. The web application is a multitrack digital audio workstation in a browser. Digimix is build on Adobe Flex and Flash technology, and supports editing up to 15 tracks with real-time mixing.
DigiMix launched a public alpha last year, but the service is currently unavailable to the public.
Today Aviary announced that it has acquired DigiMix and plans to incorporate the audio editor into its suite of applications. It's not clear at the moment how long it will be until we see a public version of DigiMix, or whether the service will be free, subscription based. My guess is that Aviary will use the same sort of freemium model it offers for its other tools, providing some features for free and charging power users a monthly fee.
In the meantime, you can check out a demo video of DigiMix after the jump.
