    Hi Kerosen you can use the bpm plug-in o find out the bpm of the song. Remixing is a big topic... it all depends on what you are trying to do, the style, do you want to use the whoel song and just add to it, or take elements from th song and use in a remix...? Firstly, remixing a whole song without the individual tracks is gonna be very tough in general. However, you can cut out some elements from the song (vocal lines, drum hits, etc) that are relatively alone in the song (not crowded by other instruments etc)... ...make a drum beat you like, on a different track add the cut our regions from the song and start cutting and pasting around to try out an arrangement... Is that helpful? I'm not sure as it's difficult to advise without knowing the style you are going for and the original material. Do listen to your favourite artist's remixes to understand how it sounds, and how much of a track they may remix. If you don't already have it, Logic 101: Core Logic 8 [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/Logic8101[/url] Will be helpful to understand more about how to add synths and create drum beats, as will the ES2 exposed and Ultrabeat and the Logic 404 Mixing with Olav Basoski may inspire you too: [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/prodElectro[/url] Do check out the preview videos first to see what would suit you & of course feel free to ask us any more questions. Cheers Rounik

    Re: re-mixing
    Remixing is a little bit more complicated than that, you'll have a tough time removing tracks. If you're interested in remixing a good place to start would be to get some acapella tracks (just the vocals). You'll have to try and find the acapella of the track you want to remix. The legal way of obtaining acapellas is to get 12" singles, which will usually have acapella tracks on them. Then you just need to import the acapella, figure out the bpm and get cracking. The other way of getting acapellas is not strictly legal, but if i give you the words "google", "remix" and "acapella", i'm sure you can take it from there. As long as you don't try and sell anything for profit there's no reason for anyone to come knocking on your door.

    Re: re-mixing
    Hi, Remixing is a very broad subject. I remember there was a video seminar with Vincent di Pasquale on remixing with Logic Pro 7 on Apple.com. You can still find it here : [url]http://www.seminars.apple.com/seminarsonline/logic7remix/apple/index1.html[/url] I also know a book called "The Remixer's Bible" that might interest you. It's by Francis Preve, a producer who did remixes for Justice, Gabriel & Dresden and other artists. I never read it but I'm pretty sure it is worth a look. You can find it online on Amazon. Happy remixing! Christian
