Instagram clones another key TikTok feature with 'Remix'
by Jay Bonggolto
Instagram launched a TikTok-style function on its platform last year called Reels. The feature allows you to create videos spanning up to 15 seconds with audio and effects.
While Reels already has a bunch of features similar to those of TikTok, it's mimicking yet another key function of the video music app. The Facebook-owned service announced today a new capability in Reels called Remix.
Remix works like duet on TikTok. It is designed to let you create your own Reel that builds on an existing video from other users. This means you can record a clip next to another video as a sort of virtual collaboration. This capability is popular among TikTok users who like taking on dance challenges or responding to viral clips.
Instagram noted that Remix can help you capture your reaction to a video or collaborate with friends on the platform. To use the new feature, you can simply tap the three-dot menu on a clip and choose the “Remix this Reel” option. You can then create a Reel next to that video or upload a recorded clip.
The feature also provides some level of control. You can adjust the audio volume for the original clip or your own video and you can also add a voiceover. There are some editing tools as well like timer, effects, and speed.
Remix is available from today for new Reels and it's turned on by default. That said, you can also manually enable the feature for older clips.

Instagram adds a way to remix photos for more wacky fun
by Timi Cantisano
It looks like Instagram is adding more new features to its app in an attempt to sway users from the competition and add them it is userbase that topped 500 million active users in September. Starting today, users will be able to "remix" photos from friends.
You might be asking what remixing a photo means and its simply just a way of saying that you can now add stickers, text, or drawings to a friend's photo and then share it back for a bit of added fun. In order to take advantage of this feature, you'll want to be updated to version 24 of the app on Android or iOS. When you view a photo from a friend, tap the camera icon at the bottom and start a reply. As mentioned before, you'll be able to add wacky additions and send it as a reply. You can see some examples of works in the image above.
Instagram has also added a feature that will allow users to control whether their message can be played once or replayed multiple times. By allowing a replay, the photo or video will loop infinitely and can be paused by tapping and holding the media. If you want to experience the new features, be sure to update to the latest version.

Jide's Android Marshmallow-based Remix OS for PCs receives update to version 3.0
by Timi Cantisano
Jide's 'Remix OS' has hit version 3.0, bringing a wealth of new features to the Android Marshmallow-based OS for PCs.
If you are unfamiliar with Remix OS, don't worry, you aren't alone. The Android-based OS is a fairly new creation that started life in January of 2016. The OS is optimized to run on PC, and was built with speed and performance in mind. Naturally, it wouldn't be a PC optimized version of Android if it didn't make life easier on a PC. This is where Remix OS excels with features like multiple window support, taskbar, keyboard and mouse optimizations, and more.
While a majority of the aforementioned features were staples since version 2.0 - Jide has now optimized the features, like adding the ability to automatically resize windows, for an even better experience.
If you are curious to try the OS for yourself, be sure to hit the source link below. If you are looking for a safer alternative, the Chuwi Vi10 Plus that offers Remix OS natively, might be for you.

So I bought a new pair of Astro A40s and I wanted to legally download free dubstep in aiff. I cant' find any anywhere :( I acutally can't find much music to listen to in aiff at all even if I wanted to pay for it, but I'd love to just try the headset out by listening to aiff files (I hear the quality is great). Anyone have any ideas? Preferably free legal downloads. I love dubstep.
