What is a remix?

A remixer uses one or more audio samples to create a new piece of music. For example, a vocal track that has been removed from the rest of the instruments can be placed within an entirely new backdrop of instruments and harmonies. The voice can also have its tone edited, and its pitch and rhythm changed. Another example would be when an audio sample is trimmed down to a single beat and then pitch corrected to create new melodies and rhythms. 

A variety of software is available to complete these tasks including Appleā€™s GarageBand and Logic Pro and the multi-platform Abelton Live. You can even create a remix using a simpledigital audio recording software (like the free and open-source program, Audacity). If you have any questions, simply find out what software you have access to and then use an Internet search engine to find out how you would make a remix using that software.
