Remix Software
October 2, 2012 12:12 PM   Subscribe

Inspired by Tiger and Woods' Gin Nation (sampling Imagination's Music & Lights), if I wanted to create some remixes of favorite old tracks, what software package would best enable me to do this? Cost is not so much of an issue, but I don't want to buy some package that I'll drown in and don't necessarily need all the bells and whistles of. I know there's a lot out there - that all come in basic/ normal/ whizz-bang versions - but need some help navigating.

Melodyne looks interesting (I watched the demixing video) - not sure if that could only be used for extraction, or as a full remixing package.

Ableton live. Melodyne is too complicated and not as useful as it appears.

Ableton Live is a program that is simple enough at first glance, but goes very, very, very, very, very deep. It's ability to warp pitch, tempo and create instant loops is legendary and possibly untouched by any other piece of software ever released, so if you want to make edits (which is technically what Tiger & Woods do, rather than straight up remixes), then that's probably the way to go.
