    Producers help/advice please

    Taking you back in the day when starsound did their thing with stars on 45, well my question is simple i want to add a quantised beat to an existing track to make a remix. I can p,ay one deck then set a 1 bar loop & bring up the fader to get that sound but how can i do it in software? Is it a simple task? I have adobe audition & have watched several videos but its really hit & miss.

    create 2 audio tracks. one for the drum loop and one for the tunes
    Find a drum loop
    copy and paste loop for the length of the track
    add the songs you want to mix to the second track

    Look for "volume automation".

    Cubase... FL Studio... Ableton... adobe audition is NOT they way to go.

    It's also a lot easier if you can get the stems of the original tracks. The master you will be using will already be 'hard walled' and there is little room left, space to fit what you need.

    Dynamic EQ or Multiband Compression (both sidechained) is also essential. This will get the sounds to move out of the way of the other sounds, otherwise things will clash, everything will fit in it's own pocket, allowing you to achieve max volume. Simply layering the sounds and you'll soon run out of headroom.

    Send me a PM. If i like the idea, track choice, i'll happily work on the project with you. I'll engineer it, you the producer.

    Ableton Live is definitely the way to start getting the the original tracks in time, but it's a steep learning curve to start arranging extra synths and hits in my opinion.

    When I bootleg two 2 tunes together in Ableton, I'll bounce the tracks into Cubase and add the extra layers, effects and anything else there, including mastering.
