Hit N Mix: Strip Mp3’s Down To The Basics?

Posted by Ms.Tris On March - 30 - 2011

Hit N Mix Logo from

(Brr..can we say hurry up Spring? It’s freezing today)…..Great morning to all. I’m working on an artist’s track, a special request that has me a little stumped. Its using an 80’s sample. The song has so many loud snares. I have been filtering like crazy this week trying to remove them as much as possible.

While surfing last month I found a neat little program. If this works all those who sample will want to have it! Made specifically for sampling and remixing, it is software that separates different elements within the track. WoW…Just thinking I could surely use this on the beat I am working on now. Here is a brief description from the official website:

Ground-breaking, unique and fun – Tears apart MP3s/CD tracks and unlocks their basic building blocks – the individual vocals, instruments, percussion & ambient noise!

Let’s look at the video to see what this is all about:

This could spark a whole new lane in music really. I’m going to download the free version and try it out right now…

How To Chop Samples In Logic: Just Blaze

Posted by Ms.Tris On November - 18 - 2010

Happy Happy Thursday! This time next week I will have my apron on being chef :). I know… I know the post have been about once or twice a week. Sometimes I have to remind all that I’m producer first, artist, then blogger lol. I had so many beats to make and mix. This is always a great thing, but it doesn’t leave much time to post :-(.. thanks all who continue to support the site, knowing that I post as much as I can, when I can. Much love to you all for that.

I hadn’t seen this next little tutorial from Just Blaze. I love his production work. Here he gives a quick example of sample chopping using Logic. The techniques he does can most likely be achieved in any Daw that has a ‘slice ” function.

Cool the way he just sliced on the down beats…. I must try that in Reaper 🙂

The video was uploaded by top engineer Mike Chav. His site has mixing info, drum kits and more; Be sure to visit when you have time to look around.

Happy Sample Chopping To All!

Sampling and Music Composition by “Mr. Fresh”

Posted by Ms.Tris On October - 28 - 2010

Where are all the sample heads this afternoon? Well have I got a treat for you! Mr. Fresh from, has written one the most extensive articles on sampling I’ve read.

It’s a three part series with loads of information, and links to musicians who work with samples.

Sampling and Music Composition- A “Fresh” Perspective. Pt. 1: In The Beginning

Sampling and Music Composition – A “Fresh” Perspective. Pt 2 – Sampling/Interpolation/Legalities

Sampling and Music Composition- A “Fresh” Perspective. Pt. 3: Presently Speaking

Mr. Fresh goes from sampler history, through how samples are used today. Including interviews, and videos. Some of you asked about legal issues regarding sampling?.. well he covers that too!

I was chosen for an interview which is included in:
Part 3.

I honestly clicked through all the links, and I just finished watching the last video today. Very nice work Mr. Fresh! Thanks very much for sharing so much knowledge.
