remix.nin.com
remix.nin.com was the official Nine Inch Nails remix site. The site allowed users to upload their own remixes of NIN and NIN-related songs as well as download others' remixes and rate them.

Removal

In November 2016, nin.com was relaunched and all subsites were taken down. It is not known if remix.nin.com will be relaunched at any point in the future. All remixes (both official and fan-made) were placed on archive.org[1]. The multitracks that were made available can still be downloaded from ninremixes.com.

About

Initially scheduled to go live on November 20, 2007—the same day Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D was released in the US—it was delayed due to Universal Records' reluctance to host the site, citing the same copyright issues for which they had filed lawsuits against YouTube and MySpace. Trent Reznor was more than welcome to host the site himself but he would then assume all legal responsibility, including possibly being sued by Universal. Ultimately a settlement was reached and the site went live on November 26, 2007.

Users had to register in order to use some functions of the site such as saving, uploading and downloading remixes. All Spiral members were automatically registered at the site. Unlike the fan-run ninremixes.com, remix.nin.com prohibited mash-ups or remixes using material by other artists or other media sources (film, television, etc.) due to copyright concerns.

Content

Users could create profiles and podcasts, save customized playlists, and download, rate and comment on remixes. The site also contained an advanced search function with various viewing modes, designed by Rob Sheridan. The site could be searched or browsed by clicking on the 'listen' link in the upper left hand corner.

Multitracks

The Multitracks made available for download and remixing were:

Nine Inch Nails

Official tracks

Trent Reznor's remix profile contained official remixes from several Halos, some that were previously unreleased, instrumental versions of many songs and also tracks that had been used on nin.com and thingsfallingapart.com.
