Paul McCartney has outfitted his website with a digital mixing board, allowing users to act as producers on some of the former Beatle's biggest solo hits, Ultimate Classic Rock notes.

The program is dubbed the Rude Studio, which was the name McCartney and his wife Linda gave to the recording space they set up in the barn of their Scotland home in 1971 after the Beatles broke up. McCartney's experiments there led to some of his first solo work.

In the digital Rude Studio, fans have the chance to rework some of McCartney's biggest hits, including "Maybe I'm Amazed," "Band on the Run," "Let Me Roll" and "Monkberry Moon Delight." You can adjust the levels of the keyboards, guitars, vocals, drums and bass, while also tinkering with effects like flange and echo. When you're finished with your remix, you can save it, and send it in for review (it's not clear who's doing the reviewing), with favorites being posted on the website.

Don't miss this book excerpt from Andrew Grant Jackson's Still the Greatest: The Essential Songs of the Beatles' Solo Careers about McCartney's transition from the Beatles to solo artist.
