Question DJ looking for advice

Just starting to get into DJ-ing and i'm starting to use software applications to mix music currently.

I would like to try to create a remix as a 'starting point' to learn more.

Is there any software/applications that can pick out specific beats etc?

There is a riff/beat in a song that i would like to use within the remix but there are background noises etc.

Is there a way of separating different pitched/frequency sounds?

Any advice would be great.

I would recommend you take a look at Ableton Live 7 - http://www.dv247.com/invt/47625/

Also worth a look would be ReCycle which turns concrete-rigid loops into musical modeling clay, allowing you, the loopist, to do pretty much what you desire - http://www.dv247.com/invt/20738/

I suggest looking at the new version of Melodyne if your looking to separate sounds/riffs. Ableton is a great tool for beats.

Serato for DJing, Ableton Live for remixing/live sets, Cubase for production...

Try Sony's Acid Planet site for remix packs.

ACIDplanet.com: Contests

There are some archive/past remix comp packs to try for fun too. A remix is a good way to ease yourself into production. Think of a concept/how you want the finished product to sound before you start though, otherwise you could be drawn into letting the music drag you where it wants to go!

Demo Cubase, Ableton, Sonar, Reason, Reaper and Sony Acid to see which one you get along with and then stick to and master that one prog.
