Ever had two songs play together in your head? Then you, like me, may have been tempted to make a legit mash-up of what you hear in your imagination.
But when you play the real records together, the drum beats don't much, the one's mix crowds the other out, etc. It's not what you had in mind.
So, if I want a sample of just one instrument, or voice, or noise, from a song to put in my mix, how do I get it without taking a bunch of backbeats, background vocals, and other background noise with it? How do I isolate that one sound? What are the tools I would use? What's the jargon for performing this operation? Is there a tutorial you can point me to?
