definitely tighter — big improvement.

as cdk point out: if you use the stock samples that come with the program (like the ‘scratching’ sampling) you WILL get called out ;)

The chipmunk thing takes a pretty thing and makes it well, un-pretty — If that’s what you want that’s totally cool (!) but just know what to expect in people’s reaction.

Your song don’t suck they just need some work and some time. Nice try, keep it up.

yea that is the problem, but the thing is that i’m obviously not trying to win…i’m more or less just goofing off trying to make some weird music…i’m not into the conventional type of music,i’m trying to get good at making shit that i can see in my mind when its late at night and really dark, and im really sleepy but can’t go to sleep and have to take a xanax, then all the crazy shit starts to happen.

that’s all cool Mike, I guess it’s worth keeping in mind however that you are posting to a *community* remix web site, not your personal sandbox — the suggestions are not necessarily because we assume you’re trying to win a contest, but because we all want a community where the music is the best possible and its artists can fully realize their potential.

i totally understand that, i was just clarifying why my songs sound the way they do.

no that was just a joke, i’m just glad that i found this site and was jumping to the chance to do something different,because i’ve never tried to do a remix like this song, and the tempo for me was kind of hard to calculate,so i was just improvising with the "chipmunk" effect, i was gonna use traktor but my computer is so slow that it would be impossible to do "real time" mixing, but i’m gonna keep doing this, and you will see that i am a fast learner and can adapt in a short period of time
BTW. what programs do yall use?

well ACID is not real time — it’s an authoring tool and it tends to be pretty good with memory. You might want to start with the XPress version and see if it suits your style. Barely any learning curve to just jump in and get good results.

FL studio is powerful and cheap but a pretty intense (and ongoing) learning curve. Relatively good on resource drain.

Reason is powerful, expensive and big (one time) learning curve — don’t know how much resources it burns.

Live is expensive kind of a world of it’s own, version 5 coming out brings close to the feature set of the the others I mentioned, a one-time learning curve with a big payoff for loop-triggering type of work. A pretty nasty drain on the computer since everything is, by default, real-time.

yea fruity loops is what i used for these, i’ve used acid before but never really got into it.

FL can be a nightmare when trying to sync things up — ACID gives you much, much better visual feedback when it comes to that.

yea…it was a hard track to match with a beat, i might just give acid another try and use both programs

when you’re there look up the docs on ‘beatmapped’ files (that’s what you want for the pells)

also, if you have some money to throw around FL embeds itself into ACID Pro as a VSTi really nicely (!) so you don’t have give up either or ping back and forth between the two.

I’ve done this quite a few times with cool results.

thats the one i was talking about, it is so bad ass. I’m using 4.1 right now, and i did chop the vocals i just couldn’t place them right and couldn’t sync them with the track
