Restaurant operators looking for a way to provide custom music mixes at an affordable price have a new solution. ReMix, the newest service from business music service provider Custom Channels, is an economical and legal alternative for small businesses that have tried iPods, CDs, computer playlists, satellite radio and Pandora but aren’t satisfied with the music mix they’ve gotten, John Bradley, chief music officer for Custom Channels, said in a company press release.
“It’s more interactive than satellite, more customizable than Pandora, and legal, unlike your iPod,” he said.
ReMixers get to create and manage their own custom channel online by choosing the music styles, adjusting the mix, and adding and deleting songs from the ReMix online music library.
Their ReMix channel is streamed to their business location and heard on a dedicated Internet media player or a web-based player on their computer. Restaurants with multiple locations can share the same ReMix channel, ensuring a consistent music experience across the concept.
The ReMix library has been screened for songs that aren’t appropriate for in-store business play because of lyrics or length and is fully licensed so songwriters get paid when their songs get played. An online client dashboard allows ReMix users to preview their music selections and review their playlist history. There are no interruptions, commercials, promos or DJ talk. ReMix music is fully optimized for the commercial environment with high-quality digital sound and no variations in volume from song to song, Bradley said.
