Eventide Audio is offering a chance to win over $3,000 in prizes including plugins and cash in its “Open My Eyes” remix contest.

In the summer of ’68 , Todd Rundgren and his band, NAZZ, released a song awash with tape flanging called “Open My Eyes.” The flanging effect played a key role in Eventide’s genesis. In our founding year, 1971, we introduced audio’s first rackmount effects box, the Instant Phaser. The Instant Flanger followed a few years later.

Eventide’s crew recorded the basic tracks of “Open My Eyes” and now challenge you to download the stems and remix it. Use any combination of plug-ins to best emulate the sounds of the original recording, improve it, or go nuts and create something completely new. However, the mix must include audible use of the Instant Phaser or Flanger.

If you don’t own Instant Phaser Mk II or Instant Flanger Mk II yet, you can try fully functional 30-day demos, or purchase the plugins at a 70% discount for only $39 USD each through May 11th, 2022.
