    way to do it

    Best way to blend is beatbox the beat behind the acapella and notice where the beat loops in his vocals. So, basicly the most important thing is to look for where the beat drops and start over (looped) and if you cant beatbox to an acapella then dont try to blend

    aiight heres the problem you have a latency problem that makes you seem off beat. If you can't get a new soundcard with a lower latency rate you can quantise the vocals to the beat...

    lol...wtf? ^

    The problem is - you can't just mix ANY 2 songs together - they have to sound right toghether. You can speed up or slow down the vocals or beat a little bit - but they need to be close.

    Go download the Tupac and Bone accapella and mix it w/ R. Kelly's Ignition (I think it was the remix). They match pretty damn well - but you will have to play with it...

    ^^ Do you use turntables @ all?

    ...I personally use CEP to mix songs (I don't consider it a remix - just a mix). I don't think you need a program to give you the BPM. Two instances of Windows Media Player is what I use to "audition". If I think it is workable - then I throw them into CEP and do my thing.

    Accapella - Usher - My Way
    Instrumental - Lil Kim - Magic Stick

    You have to slow the accapella down a tiny bit, and it is workable. Too bad I can't find a nice sounding copy of that accapella! I have a shitty low bitrate copy.

    Art...

    ...he is not recording his own vocals. He's mixing 2 files. This is all done internally - so latency is not an issue in this case.
