Genius piece of kit. Will set you back around 200, but it's probably the best at what it does. It uses a newer sample window analysis method that is way more accurate then what you get in the box with Logic, Cubase, Protools etc..
+1 for that. For those who care (probably not you, Ed!) it's available to Pro Tools as a plug-in called X-Form (marketed by Digidesign, even though the algo/controls are identical) and it's amazing.

Also, the new Elastic Audio feature in Pro Tools 7.4 uses that algorithm as well for it's "offline" mode, no extra plug-in purchase required, so if you use PT for remixing you automatically get the Radius/X-Form 'mode' included.

Only Pitch n' Time is on that level of goodness... and it's good to have both if you can afford them because different types of program material respond differently to different algorithms.*

* How many times can YOU use "different" in a sentence?

  • A style could be suggested
  • Some production techniques could be suggested
  • Participants could share their remixes with each other
  • Participants could get feed back on their progress

Wouldn't it be nice some day if a DV Forums member was to gain recognition or be chosen as the winner in a remix competition?

+1 great idea, not just a pretty face.lol but on a serious note, those that really do well could maybe get advice on how to take it further i.e how to try and get it released

always attack things with a positive outlook, you could read the tutorial and make something brilliant. it happened to my little cousin and because he was new to the whole thing he lost out and didn't make a penny. what he made was used by Mtv base for one of there adverts many years ago

No, don't get the wrong idea, I am positive about it. Realistic also. I know I have a lot to learn but everyday brings something new and I'm on it! I'm learning the world from you guys. Thanks to all!

Default Bpm??

The following bmp guide is given at Electronic dance music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  • 6090 bpm Hip hop,Electrofunk, and Dub
  • 90120 bpm Faster Hip Hop and Big Beats/"Trip hop"
  • 120135 bpm House
  • 135155 bpm Techno and Trance
  • 155180 bpm Drum'n'bass / Jungle
  • 180+ bpm Hardcore techno, Gabber and beyond

Do you seasoned producers agree with this?

Also, how do you go about getting the bmp of a track? I do it more or less by trial and error. I saw a formula somewhere on the forums but can't seem to find it. Do people use software or maths to find the correct tempo of a recorded track?

if you want too know those as well you might as well do a search for a midi file of the song you want to do ..theres millions of free midi files out there on the net you just have too do a good search..or try torrent sites theres lots on there but i cant post links for them on here.

try these which ive just found..
Free MIDI Zone - MIDI files

just download the midi file import it into your daw then click on the parts too see what key there in what chord structure it follows weres the chorus,break,verse,middle 8.

if your still having trouble just do what norman cook does goto your local carboot find a obscure record sample the crap out of it add a break beat and bobs your uncle one bonafidi remix done in 10 minutes

I presume if something like 116.98 bpm comes out of mixmeiseter, then it's just a question of rounding up to 117? Are fractions of a beat to be taken into account?
