Exactly.very, very useful from a djing point of view. the top secret hip hop edits all work like a dream and make the records about a million times easier to play
With a remix, you're working with individual tracks in one particular tune, and probably sticking in your own elements (new beat, new bassline, new counter-melodies, etc) as if you were sitting down at the same mixing desk as the producer/engineer.What is the difference between an edit and a remix anyway? As I understood it edits were a kind of step on the way to remixes, usually extending a track (or in particular the break) by cutting up and re-ordering the tape on which it was made. Since technology advanced they seemed to become redundant but the word has come back in to currency in recent years. Does it just now mean "a remix that isn't very different from the original"? I guess I can see the point of tidying up the beat so it's easier to mix but is there normally more to it than that?
