Hour 20. Remixing a Project

As you’ll recall, the MIT Scratch Team named their product after the disc jockey (DJ) technique of moving a vinyl record back and forth on a turntable with the goal of producing unique sounds.

The Scratch Team, if nothing else, has a sense of humor, because what will learn about in this hour, remixing, also dates back to my generation – the 1980s.

According to Wikipedia, a remix is a song that is been edited or completely redone such that it sounds different from the original version. In case you’re not of my generation and have no idea what a vinyl record or re-mix cassette tape look like, check out Figure 20.1
