But where do you start with a remix?
depends on where do you want to start
- import a midi file to get a melody
- or import vocals as samples
- or slice, cut, and extract what do you want from original song with third party audio program (I recommend Audacity) and load it to psycle as samples for further processing
- add your own beats, melody, vocals to the remix
Can we load a whole song on psycle...
Yes, it's possible. Just convert the song to wave pcm and load it as generic sample. I used this approach with songs from 4 to 7 min length without any performance problems on single core celeron 1.6,512 ram.

Actually you can deconstruct the original song, basically you can:
- cut loaded song to slices, using integrated sample editor or sampler commands.
But I strongly recommend you to do such thing in specialized software like Audacity.
Loading the whole song to psycle is possible but it is also unreasonable - to hard to handle such long peace of sound in mind. Imagine, to preview changes located at the end of that huge sample, you have to listen it from the start to the end.
Thus, before you start your remix with psycle, prepare the original source with some wave editor (audacity):
- choose tempo and apply it to source
- divide the source to some logical elements (loops, one-shot samples, etc.)
- export the elements to wave with clear filenames
After it you are ready to psycle:
- load the elements as samples
- mix them as you want
- add to mix some extra stuff (effects, melody, beats)
