Maybe not exactly the right forum, as this is a request for some enterprising remixer to undertake. I've been trying to cut the intro out of One Vision so it starts at the first guitar chord, but there's always an annoying, piercing noise as the tail end of the intro synth gets pulled in. Does anyone know how to clean that up?

The synth and guitar overlap a bit, so it'll be no easy job, if it even is possible.

Dear Thunderbolt,

Hi! How are you? 

What is the source you're using for the mix? The CD version?

Thunder hug,

Yara

Ok, first off, THANK YOU!

Secondly, how the heck did you do that? I've been screwing with the album version, the single version, even the karaoke and live versions to try and find a clean guitar hit I could use there.

Copied sample from the beginning without synth and pasted in proper place made this 'miracle' ;-) Also some very small fades in/out to make it 'smooth' and that's all ;-)

Great! Tx, PiotreQ.

Thunderbolt,

Well, I would have recommended something harder and more expensive. :p

I'd tell you to try ripping the files off the DVD Greatest Hits II, splitting them properly in a good sound editor and isolating the guitar by getting its general pattern of frequency and so on. That'd do it, I think.

The other way is more expensive, but affordable - it's not as expensive as it used to be and it's useful to toy around with and try different sounds, alone or with band mates.

I work with music and study it so I got to have some of these things, but nowadays there are good stuff available at an affordable price for non-pro people in general or musicians.

- Getting a digital mixing console with an USB port - there are good ones which are not that expensive. You might try an used one as well. Some models don't take much space and are relatively easy to work with.
- If possible, getting the latest version of ProLogic, is one of my favorite popular sound editors and the Yamaha digital keyboard with 88 keys, USB ports, midi supporters and different voices.

It all sounds absurd, but it's not - it's really worth it: people who like to try sounds and toy around with them, as well as tapers and so on, can benefit from these things.

Of course, it depends on one's wishes, goals, necessities, budget, so on. But nowadays they're smaller, have a great interaction with many softwares and some quite good can be acquired by a fair, affordable price.

Good, useful tools. ProLogic's latest version with its updates and samples, a digital mixing console with USB port and, eventually, the keyboard I mentioned - my friend recently bought here an used one at a very good price, really.

That'd be it...I mean. Not much of a help, I know. Well, I always try to say what works for me - if it works for me, and I'm not by far the sharpest knife in the drawer, I always assume it may work for others.

lol

THUNDER HUG

Maybe I should spend a "bit" of time finding something more advanced than SoundForge. With the "torrent" of remix ideas and "how would this have sounded?" thoughts that cross my mind, getting something with more capability might be helpful.

Where did that come from, though?

It was third the same guitar chord hit at the beginning (about 2 seconds after first guitar hit). The first chord was, as it was mentioned, overlapped with synth. I hope I understood corectly your question ;-)
