I use a Yamaha XG sound card which is one of the better cards available.
Yamaha has a great soft synth
available that turns any sound card into an XG sound card. Go to their Virtual store and buy it if you want
to hear the great sounds. This is in England so you purchase it with a credit card and download to your
computer. Choose either the S-YXG50 or 100 for the best performance. Read the computer requirements
first. I get nothing from this except your satisfaction.
Note: These songs will not sound right on Real Player even if you have a Yamaha synth.
Note that XG files may not sound right on other sound cards. Yamaha Store
Re-mixing consists of :
a) Changing the instruments on a track to one that I think sounds better
b) Copying a track to another track and assigning a new instrument to it.
c) Alter tracks by using a copy/paste. This is useful with demo files which chop off in the middle.
d) Use the Midi Keyboard to create a melody or accompaniment
e) I have also created some songs myself. An example of this is Night In Japan
