THE ART OF REMIXING

A great remix has to hit the spot on so many levels: it’s got to use the best bits of the original track, yet it’s got to be different enough to be a rework. And then, on top of it all, it’s got to be a great tune in its own right! 

That’s why, across 16 pages and 14 tutorial videos, we’re exploring every aspect of remixing, from inspirational advice to isolation techniques. In our huge cover feature, you’ll discover…

  • How to warp audio, organise remix stems and come up with a gameplan
  • Methods to create your own ‘remixing instrument’ for instant inspiration
  • Creative stockpiling to enhance your remixing workflow
  • Bootlegging strategies for isolating and reworking whole songs
  • How to take a remix further with fresh drums and new instruments
  • Advanced extraction and isolation: noise removal, polyphonic dissection and more
  • Must-have remix tools and tactics

Grab the whole lot with issue 247 of Computer Music, and get a taste of the skills you'll learn in this massive feature in the below video.

CREATE YOUR OWN PLUGIN WITH HISE

Earlier this year saw the release of HISE, a free modular environment – in the style of Reaktor – that offers unlimited possibilities for DIY signal-shaping techniques. Beyond that, HISE’s knockout feature is its ability to export your creations as VST and AU plugins.

In this feature, we’re bringing you a beginner’s guide to HISE. Across our course of six videos, you’ll join us in setting up the software and creating a project, customising your instrument and its interface, and exporting it as a complete VST plugin to use in your own tracks.
