I'm currently doing a remix. One thing I always struggle with in Drum and Bass, is the arrangement and structure of the track, especially when doing a remix. All I have at the moment is the vocal. It's at 125 BPM, and the remix will be at 173 BPM. Obviously with this jump, it'd be impossible to time stretch, so what I've done is chop the vocal up into silables (Took bloody ages!), and with some cross fading, rearranged it so that it now fits the 173 BPM tempo. This worked surprisingly well, and after allot of tweaking, you can't tell that it's been chopped up, which is great. The problem now though, is where to put everything. I've always had a musical ear, and have done very little learning as far as music theory. This has been OK for the most part, but it's times like this where I wish I had done music theory (I'm certainly going to attempt to learn now) The prospect of turning this 125 BPM track into a 173 DnB one, is something I can't really get my head round... Just using the structure of the original song wouldn't work, because now that the vocal is at 173, the song would be over in about a minuet. I need filler, basically, and it's proving quite difficult to discern what is too long an intro or build up, and what's too short. While I'm trying to arrange it there are these periods where nothing interesting is happening. I don't know how long each section should last, or what I should do with the vocal during that time. If anyone can give any tips, I'd be very grateful. Thanks! - LG P.S - Unfortunately I won't be able to upload an audio clip of what I'm trying to do. Until tomorrow I've got incredibly slow internet speeds, and just trying to upload a photo to facebook a few hours ago was an impossibility.
