Can anyone please help me in explaining to me how to mix a rap song with a techno song without slowing down the Rap Acapella or speeding it upp ?? If this is even possible and also how to mix rap on rap. ThanksAdSense 336x280November 4, 2009 at 5:52 am #673729

2 songs that are different speeds are gonna sound terrible if the speed are not adjusted.
Unless of course U come up with something AMAZINGLY creative!
I picked up a white label of a really slow pella over a house beat which couldnt be
sped up enough so was chopped around to make up the time.
It was awful haha!AdSense 336x280November 4, 2009 at 1:15 pm #673738
Use a BPM analyser to find some aca’s/techno roughly the same speedAdSense 336x280November 4, 2009 at 2:18 pm #673740

Going slightly off topic now;
Just tried the analyzer for the 1st time, its impressive but by no means accurate enough
to rely on religiously.
Out of 10 acapellas it managed to get 2 100% correct. (0.01bpm accuracy)
(Which is still amazing, how does it do that with no beat analyze???)AdSense 336x280November 13, 2009 at 4:31 am #674021
If you have the luxury of using logic there is a bpm counter that has proved accurate from my experiences. Once you get the BPM you just open the track in the sample editor, go the the factory tab, then click on the time and pitch machine. From there you can enter in the current bpm and the desired bpmAdSense 336x280December 10, 2009 at 8:18 am #675014
there’s plenty of rap songs that’ll mix into techno, try 3 six mafia, Ugk, Twista or anything round that tempo, double time rap type of stuff, break ya neck by Busta Rhymes maybe.AdSense 336x280December 22, 2009 at 4:35 pm #675444
Thanks to everyone !AdSense 336x280January 30, 2010 at 6:16 pm #676809
You can always speed up or slow down aca’s to go to the beat of a hip hop song or break the aca up to match parts of the song.AdSense 336x280January 30, 2010 at 11:18 pm #676811
you can stretch audio to fit the bpm as well, but again this is not always reliable. If the key of the song is not important, try slowing down the acapella to fit the vocals. and its the same for rap on rap too. you just have to spend some time fine tuning things and it will eventually come together. what are the two songs if you don’t mind me asking?AdSense 336x280April 8, 2010 at 12:47 pm #678645

I agree, double timing is the easiest without much adjustment to BPM/Pitch. As long as the songs are in Key, you can get a nice clean transition from down south/crunk ish to dubstep/hardstyle etc..AdSense 336x280April 28, 2011 at 5:45 pm #686984
its not possible manAdSense 336x280May 31, 2011 at 4:56 pm #687416
Well in house it is: 128 BPM. Now get the rap song 128 / 2 = 64 BPM. You can try that, it will match the beat but it will go 2x as slow.AdSense 336x280June 15, 2011 at 3:01 am #687581
Gonna be difficult to do…
If you have to force it, use the breakdowns, where it might be less noticeable that the tunes are not in sync.AdSense 336x280August 27, 2011 at 8:00 pm #688629
You can speed the track up to match BPMs of the techno without the pitch changing using a program like audacity, so you could essentially match any rap song you want over whatever techno song you’re thinking of.
Here’s an example of this.
The creator boosted Lupe’s song by at least 30 bpms, but it sounds awesome in my opinion. But just to warn you, its much fidning something that fits well with rap and techno.AdSense 336x280February 29, 2012 at 7:35 pm #691639

there’s tons of ways of cheating to achieve this but its basically all about timingAdSense 336x280June 1, 2012 at 12:23 pm #692984
I have tried traktor for beatmapping but its not great and you need to fiddle a lot, can anyone suggest a better solution – that’s free hopefully?AdSense 336x280June 2, 2012 at 9:51 pm #693017
easist way would be to pick a rap track thats about 125bpm : )
other than that their are programs out there that can reduce/increase the tempo/bpm without altering the pitch. I dont own a specific one myself but Im sure someone with know of one on here

im pretty sure, say if u have a electro beat at 128bpm, i think u can add a rap acc if u halve 128, which is 64 bpm, will b slow but i think it works?AdSense 336x280December 20, 2012 at 8:44 pm #696183
Match the tempo of both songs, and if you plan ahead and find the key of both songs you can match that too… then you do a low pass filter on the techno tune to get the 4×4 UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ drums and kicks and low-end goodness , and do a high pass on the rap song so you just get the high-end, the the vocals are the most important thing anyway and maybe some synths/other instruments in that part of the frequency spectrum will get through as well…this will remove the low-end which is being occupied by your TECHNO song…. and BAM you’ve created a nice mix… but tempo is the biggest thing and key of songs if you want better results.AdSense 336x280December 22, 2012 at 10:06 pm #696254
everything the above people have stated seems validAdSense 336x280December 20, 2013 at 3:25 am #701251
It can be done in various ways. One is to simply cut from on to the other like you would when mixing hip hop, another is to do a pitchstop on one and set the track mixing in on a slow pitch start. You can also echo out one and set that echo to the same bpm as the track thats coming in. Be creative.AdSense 336x280February 28, 2014 at 9:36 pm #702107
If you want to do that then you want to cut between songs. You can’t mix two songs with different BPMs together cleanly without cutting.AdSense 336x280
