    What are Music Mixing Games?

    Music mixing games provide an easy way to do recorded sound blending like DJs. It is where learning all sorts of instrumental sounds are not done through reading but actual listening. More than that, players just need to follow interactive guides like selecting their virtual bass, drums, guitar or xylophone to do their preferred arrangement then immediately listen to the final effect.

    The following are websites that offer music mixing games:

    DJ Rick’s Music Mixer

    DJ Rick Music Mixer In DJ Rick’s Music Mixer, you can grab up to nine different sounds coming from bass, drums, guitar, saxophone, and piano. Each instrument has 4 to 11 down lines of choices. Another list is called DJ Rick where 11 words like “clink" or phrases like “shout outdoor" are recorded to add unique effects.

    The window for this mixer has 3 different boards. Players do not need to log in or register. Boxed instructions automatically pop up as the page loads. It’s as simple as choosing the instruments then clicking the mini boxes on which part you want it to be played. One sound has 12 seconds running time and it can be played up to 11 times.
