HERSHEY, Pa., Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- It's a musical throwback with a new take on the iconic '808' drum machine. The TAKE5 brand releases the Remixer, the first-ever packaging in the U.S. to use conductive ink to create music on the spot. The limited release TAKE5 Remixer allows users to immediately remix music with built-in speakers and requires no app installation.
The battery-powered Remixer includes five rows of three beats with pause and stop buttons to produce more than 30,000 unique track combinations. "With all the technology seamlessly blended inside the box, the Remixer allows consumers to take it with them on any adventure," said Dan Mohnshine, director TAKE5 brand. "In a world of headphones and streamed music, the Remixer lets people collaborate together in a group music-playing experience."
On Sept. 17 at Hotel Thrillist, in a New Orleans-style welcome, the TAKE5 brand is giving more than 500 guests their own Remixer.
