What you're looking at are the exported stems from the club mix that was…created in Ableton Live.…I decided to export the stems and create the radio edit of the club arrangement…and logic because over the years I've had projects come across my desk where an…artist needs to club mix edited for radio and they feel confident in their own…abilities to do it, so they reach out for outside help.…In other words, don't feel that you have to be in any specific DAW to create a…radio edit from stems that were created in a club mix in another program.…
As long as you have all the files starting at the same point and you are able to…line them up in your DAW of choice, then you simply go in and edit, as we are…about to do with this song.…I'll double-check and make sure that everything is lined up in measure 1, and…right away I realize that this hype main sound is 1 bar off,…so I need to adjust that. And I'll zoom in on the Lead Vocal track so that I can…see where verse 1 starts: measure 33.…I'll place the playhead there, shrink the screen, and I will insert an edit point…
