The song I originally chose is called Alone With You by Justin Myles. It's a slow tempo R&B song that I thought had a cool vibe. It's very much an acoustic based song so I thought it would give me some room to experiment with more electronic sounds in my remake.
First we were asked to take the dry stems and mix the song as close to the original preview as we could. I took my mix in a slightly a different direction but still kept the original essence intact. I was pretty happy with how my mix ended up turning out overall.
We then were asked to create a stem from which we would build new music on. The acoustic guitar in this song is definitely the driving force and most notable instrument. I decided to keep it and the vocal so you could still get the main feel from the original but also hear what I added in my remix.
This was the first variation of my remix. For this section we were asked to use rewire to construct part of the song. I used rewire through Pro Tools and Ableton for three different sounds in this version. I ended up only keeping one in my final version but it was still a cool technique that I will use in the future. For this part I also added new drums and pads.
This is a small section that was essentially my final for the remix. We were asked to use sound effects to add a finishing polish to the song. For my remix I was going for a slow, spacey type feel and I think this assignment helped get me there best. I just found three different wild sound effects in Logic that I thought went well with what I was trying to do and put them in where necessary. My goal was to take an acoustic song and make it sound more electronic in a way. While there is always room for improvement I was pretty happy with how this section turned out.
