Tweaking Stems to your liking?

Postby KingTrollestia » 03 Apr 2013 16:08

I've seen this a lot from people who struggle with coming up with ideas for music. I notice that most of the time they tend to take stems from certain songs, like say from Beatport, or just convert a loop they like from a song and turn it into MIDI and make something new out of it. I'm just interested and curious to know if any of you actually try this, because I actually like the hook for Radioactive from Imagine Dragons and want to try something with it.

it's pretty much impossible to make stems without getting them from the original artist. if you want to just get a MIDI file from a loop you may have luck with some software (melodyne, ableton live 9) if the pitch is clear enough, but you probably will have to do it by ear.
