Remixing

Post by birdhouse19 » Sun Jun 19, 2011 1:18 am

Ok here's my situation..

Fairly new to remixing side of Live. But I have an acapella I throw it in my channel, i warp it up to the bpm I desire (128) its not originally 128, I dunno if that has an effect to it. But anyhow I just want to align a simple kick to it then build it up from there. But of course its not just that easy. I been playing around with the warp markers making sure they are on the right beat. I also took the original song version put it on the channel above it so I could match the original kick with the plain acapella (its perfectly aligned).

Trouble is I have my kick in a drum kit i made just made a simple 1 length measure loop and its off, not totally but enough. I tried side chaining the kick with a gate to the vocal channel lol. That didn't work. Bit new and a bit lost. But i just want to align my kicks, snares, hats, etc to the vocal so its all on beat, anyone help me? thanks.

Start with the Beat and make the vocal fit to it.
