Nothing wrong with leaving the flange turned on for your whole set. Sounds sick bruz

i swear to god hey. you can't beatmatch from the sound of things and you're worried about effects? do you think the positives of how good the effect sounds on the track will outweigh the negatives of how bad it sounds when you try to change tracks? do yourself a favour and ignore effects completely until you've learnt how to mix.

if you're serious about getting involved in this expensive hobby (unless you stole your gear too), learn how to do it properly from the get go otherwise i'll be seeing you over in the buying and selling forum to clean up on some cheap gear.

First you do a dj course you haven’t learnt any thing from. Then you gone out and got your dirty little hands on a pair of cdj 800s that i bet you knew nothing about before you got them.

Then you abuse the shit out of people on a community that you, yourself are the one asking the stupid questions.

Then wanting to jump strait in to tricks not wanting to learn how to mix properly quoting my stupid V.C.E book. "We don’t need to hear you play we already will know what you sound like". MESTRO.

You want to now learn tricks before you can already mix. That is like going to the skate park before and doing tricks before you know how to ride a bike.

Dude STOP MAKING DEMANDS you do what you’re told on this site untill you earn your respect.

As mentioned before stay away from the effects stay away from doing any thing else. But getting even the basics of mixing i been mixing for almost a year and I still wouldn’t use the effects in a set. Although I have looked at some effects like the much joked about cdj 1000 synth loop effect. I wouldn’t use one in a set even if just starting.

Just keep practicing and reading and researching before posting. go and read the terms and conditions

Also looking forward to picking up some cheap gear when he gets board.

It's not a cheap hobby - whatever way you look at it, but you should know that before you jump in. Music shouldn't be valueless

If you want a cheap hobby... i dunno - I don't think there are cheap hobbies. If you collect stamps properly you'll probably want all those monthly releases at about $50 a sheet.

To cosmo: You're a noob - understand that people will give you shit. You're only proving them correct with every step you take, so maybe think before you act in the future and save some face.

Beatmatch, beatmatch, beatmatch. Practise will make perfect.
If you're really into this, you'll put in the hours (it's the repetition - 4 days a week where you spend 40minutes each of those days is better than one 4 hour set) - if not, Choppy'll score some cheap gear.
You also don't have to bring the track in straight away once you've matched it - recue and play from where you want. You can bring in the new tune in the old tune's breakdown, but if it's already beatmatched it's more likely to sound 'right'.

Anyways dude - good luck, and try to quit it on the idiocy. Stick to the basics and you'll be on the right path.

I think it is safe to say he didn't do a DJ course. In his twisted little mind he thought saying it would give him some credibility though, like saying you have a forklift ticket when you rock up at a warehouse looking for work.

I still don't get how to do this!
when i start to FF or RW the track to re-cue, I always forget where i'm at on the track. e.g. I want to cue up the final 16 beats of the incoming track, I'll lose it straight away and end up missing the drop by maybe 1 or 2 beats... Would be easier to play from the start of the phrase, then bring it on the final 16 beats?

my mixing is just basic mid>intro, or outro>intro and i wanna experiment more

any tips?

Will be greatly appreciated

cheers ferret for the newb advice btw

get to know your tracks

become familiar with their structure ... use your ears

... then you will know when to drop what where.

Once again it comes down to practice and putting in the hours.

dude you're doing this the stupid way. like a spoilt little child demanding something from it's mother then throwing a tantrum if they don't get it (even if they don't deserve it).

i'm sure most of the people that have commented in this thread could teach you from start to finish how to dj, and a fair few would be making regular money playing in clubs all over the country. people like deepchild, mark dynamix, mark james, etc all post on itm (sometimes). you can't stomp your way in here and order people to give you information when human nature would suggest that people are less inclined to help people who are being pricks to them.

i've learnt so much of what i know from itm users. everything from the different types of djing gear to the history of musical genres. music theory and straight up exposure to different recommended tracks/labels/artists. i would credit itm as being a major influence on the dj and music enthusiast i am today. i guess what i'm trying to say is you can get so much out of a network of like minded people such as itm, it'd be a shame for you to miss out because you couldn't be mature and give people a little respect.

here here.


I trolled EVERY single thread in the dj booth forum (so many threads reprised over and over again.. no wonder the older people on here get all jaded) to get info before asking anything.

Next on my list is to troll through the entire music production forum..

Cosmo, I say do the same as I did! only takes about a week an a half.

Personally I beatmatch from song to song while being very very careful not to put a set together. Others all they do is play sets but that's not the right way to use your limited practice time in my opinion.

thanks bbop .

more ideas are appreciated. also someone in this thread told me earlier that when they put songs onto cds they put the songs in order of most likely to play to least likely.. would it also be a good idea to put the songs in order of bpm. for example make like 10 cds that have 126bpm then another 10 that are 127bpm and so on . ?

1 BPM difference ?

I could understand compiling tracks that are 90-100BPM on one disc and tracks that are 125-130 on another ... but that kinda narrow narrow narrow range is hardly worth worrying about
