Before I got all my residencies in clubs one of the best gigs I had was in a feild in Samford in Brisbane and I was tripping badand had a pil but everything got together and it was awesome. It was maybe the the 2nd or 3rd time I played on a pa.But the environment was awesome.

Fortunately for me my first residency when I was a noob and young was in a club that I got payed to work 6 days a week even if few people were there so it was likeing playeing at home but getting payed and I had a decent sound system. Dureing the week I would be mixineinf for 8 hours a night...sweet.

hey I got some good advice from established djs in Brisbane from there and It helped me heaps..I went on to have many residencies for 5 odd years, got different advice and chose what to take on board.

Like I have said..learn to ride the pitch control it really is a good skill to have and your mixing will allways be smooth..its about training your ears..which it all ends up at...

So when ya at home don't adjust the speed of your records or cds with your hand ..just use the pitch control...

Heck sometimes I don't mix for months but jump on my decks and the ride the pitch and its all good...

I spoilt myself and have ableton on a laptop with faderfoxes and did play a few gigs at family in the pod with em..but I will not comment on that further..

Playing in clubs...You have Monitor speakers which bounce the sound to your head where you are monitoring with your headphone on one ear...

You want both of em loud so you create a stereo effect in your head... forget about everything else..


just match your beets with the headphone ear and monitor speaker... thus you creat a stereo effect in your head from two mono sources


that just came out of nowhere..

Hey come on, its good advice. Its convinced me to go out and buy some headphones so I can create a stereo effect out of two mono sources. Up until now I had just been pressing play on the other deck and smashing the faders up until the output lights went red.

What kind of headphones do you guys think I should get?!

yup drunken posts are allways fun... cough cough

But how would you describe monitoring on a pa?

You have one headphone to one ear and then you have a monitor speaker at your other ear

and what happens when you match ya beets? how does it sound? yeah flanging in stereo..

of course beatsta. i have taken the liberty of writing you an equation.
i used to work for dolby, and it is the industry standard

stereo monitors + stereo headphones = 5.1 dolby pro logic surround sound

beatsta - Its not that you're wrong, its just that I think everyone on these boards probably knows how to use their headphones for beatmatching.

this thread has everything the build-up, the hype, the epic fail, and of course the epic excuses

I propose this get moved to the Classic threads section so Southern Dan's failure can be admired & ridiculed by generations to come

Popped back in randomly today, and I must say that I'm impressed by the general manners and helpfulness of everyone.

Good advice in this thread.
