To start with an example, I am once again freshly in love with the rhythm section on two Talkin Heads tracks, The Great Curve and Moon Rocks. I would like play around with mixing extended, non-vocal, dance mixes of these and many other tracks.
I have no quantifiable, nor any expressable, musical knowledge besides having an ear for what is good, so I would like some advice on finding an application that will allow me to sample and filter music as easily as many image editing apps allow non-designers and artists to manipulate images.
I have the required tools, but not the technique. That is, where is the best place to start with stock rythm sounds etc. to failry quickly get an approximation of the original rhythm section?
