"Warping" tracks...
G'day guys,

It pains me to tears to see that a lot of DJs are "pre-warping" their tracks (presumably with Ableton), before playing club gigs.

One such example I saw, a DJ had his CD track listing on a paper inlay, and on the CD was the word "WARPED". How blatant can you get...?

I gave him a bit of stick about it - albeit in a friendly manner - and he didn't seem to care for it, even though it was clearly playful!

I've always been of the opinion that if you're not good enough to beatmatch without "assistance", there is no way you should be playing out!

Anyone else seen this?

Name and shame!

If you leave records in a car on a hot day there is a good chance they will warp

well accapellas are acceptable, and in fact i don't mind anyone who edits their tunes to suit their own mixing style or just to do some creative shit. thumbs up i reckon!

but warping just cos u can't beat match? like i said i haven't seen that happen, but one may as well just use ableton and make use of it properly. or just lean to beat match/ride the pitch if time is such an issue.

I think it's fucking lame, personally...Ableton Live "DJ Sets" would all be like this, it's pretty weak if you're not doing extra things to compensate for the fact that you're cheating!

How's that going to work if all your tracks aren't also warped to the same BPM?

Speed up or slow down tracks while there playing just so you don't have to match the acapella? And CDJs only show exact 128BPM, no decimals, so it's never going to be precises enough to rely on, is it?

I had a fail of a dj ask me to teach him how to use ableton so he could use it for this exact purpose.

He cracked the shits when he realised he would have to add warp markers and ableton couldn't analyse the track accuratly automatically.

He was a kiwi and ended up moving back to his home contry because he couldn't get gigs.

lulz.

I dont use ableton but all of my acca's are at the same speed for ease of use - I use MY CDJ to get them where I want them and than record the acca again (its actually quicker than ableton I found.. well for me)

I admittedly warped a few tracks for one of my mixes once, it just made it boring as hell. I don't bother spending the time on it.

I do think it's cheap and a little bit like cheating but in the end, who's gonna get more gigs? The Dj who's mixes are tight as tits or the Dj who seems to spend lots of time focusing on the mix instead of the crowd? It's definately less impressive then doing it the old fashion way but if I can cue a cd with a button, loop, add phaser effects, and all that, isn't that just as bad compared to vinyl?

I don't like the idea but warping tracks is just using technology and I don't see a problem with that.

on that note, last night I was playing a wedding and the groom literally asked me to "mix old songs with new beats", lo and behold I found myself trying to keep in time bob segar's 'old time rock n roll' with john dahlback's 'pyramid'.

Massive respect to any dj that can keep in time a live drummer with a steady beat, how the hell the dj's of old did it with 2 tracks both with live drummers makes me want to practice this more and become awesome at it.

Ahh I ripped all my vinyl onto my computer... Then forgetting that I had done this burnt them into my CD wallet. Was quite shocked when I was trying to mix them and realised they were drifting all over the place...

I soon remembered why

I have no issues with it.

after all, most CD units have accurate beat counters, most mixers ditto... you don't "need" to mix by ear anymore, mixing by numbers has been around for a while.

The main drama I see, is that (one of the ways) to control energy in a setis through the original speed of a track. Most tracks sound best around their original speed IMO. I wouldn't want to mix the Dakota track that I start a set at 130 into the 140 bpm Simon Patterson track I finish with. I could make em both 134 and do the whole set at that speed but that's dumb right?

I think there are two types of DJs.

Those who just want to get regular gigs, and those who are really passionate DJs.



I'd say 9/10 the guy who uses vinyl will be way more passionate about his Djing compared to the guy who plays a set off his laptop. And thats really what i think the whole argument is about.

I DJ vinyl, but i see the ability to do many things with ableton.

if a DJ's biggest achievement is beat matching, or if it's even a thought in a performing DJ's mind, then they (imo) shouldn't be playing out.

but it's only a skill, and one that is going to be redundant (if it isn't already) to beat match without counters or warped tracks.

I'd prefer to see a great performance than a boring one, but safe in the knowledge the DJ is "really" mixing.... pfft, whatever.

I love playing with Ableton, so much you can do with percussion loops, samples, loops etc. I played on CD and vinyl the other day for the first time in ages and to be honest I enjoy Ableton much more these days and don't think I'd go back.

Beatmatching is not exactly rocket science and the most important part of DJing is playing quality music with good flow, quite frankly I couldn't give a shit how a DJ facilitates this.

Edit: Just realised this thread is about people warping tracks to use with CDJs so they don't have to beatmatch but can look like they are. Yeah, that's a bit different

Yeah, at first I thought he meant warping them to be used in Ableton, then realised that it was for burning them to CD all at the same speed . Blatant retardness, lrn2beatmatch.

Most "race" cars have sequential gearboxes (ie clutchless manuals)

They're real drivers if they also know how to use a clutch, even though they currently don't have to use it.

Sasha DOES those "extra things" though, others I've seen are just DJing off Abelton, no trickery whatsoever...aside from the fact I think it's crappy, it's also fucking boring! Where's the challenge? What's the fun in "the mix" if it's all auto-sync'ed? Click a button, EQ...BORING

End of the day, beat matching is far from the most important part of DJing, but it's a basic skill everyone who is DJing on CDJs or Vinyl should be able to do, or they shouldn't be playing out. If you want to remove that from the equation, the remove it completely and start playing live Ableton sets, not just using Ableton to make your DJ set easier. As has been said, really, it's all about the quality of music, programing, flow etc etc, the medium isn't the most important factor...just coming from someone who learnt on wax, beat matching and the skill of holding a loooooooooong mix is something about DJing that I love

Fully bro, diff folks/strokes, eh?

I was getting shit from someone for only having 10 tracks in a 1 hour mix on another forum I visit, coz he's a fidget/electro/breaks/hip hop DJ and often only plays part of tracks, I play prog/deep/tech and tend to play all of the track, and most tracks are 7-8mins long, long mixes in and out, doesn't really leave all that much of the track playing solo, and hey, if the track isn't good enough to play the whole build/break, why play it at all? And the time the track is playing solo is just the time you're using to find a new track, get it matched, then a bit of waiting for your mix point. Different styles require being played differently, he was being a total cock, there's nothing wrong with slamming through 25 partial tracks an hour if that's your style, just there's nothing wrong with only 10 tracks, you're just more focused on smooth, flow, programming...that and I don't have ADHD, playing a whole track, so long as it's a good track, doesn't leave me bored as it does him

a gig i was at on the weekend had one dj thinking he was awesome playing 20 tracks in 10 minutes or something. the next dj stepped up and did even more, shattering the first guy's ego

all sounded rather like a spasm to me though

Yerp...he even gave me the whole "even your heroes play more tracks than that"...so I went through Digweed's Transitions radio show track listing history, there's even 1 sets on there that only used 8 tracks, seemed more track listings with only 10 or less than there was people playing more.

Yeah, but i like the way beatmatching is a barrier for noobs. At least if someone is jumping up to play a set on cds/vinyl, you know that they have been mixing for at least a couple of years !

Yep...which, in turn, assists you with learning flow, programming and EQ'ing...anyone could load up Ableton with a bunch of tracks and start playing without months and months of practice
Pete Gordon - Deep and Low

Slower tempo but still with balls, deephouse, slow-mo, futurehouse, nudeep, indie, nudisco, hints of progressive, whatever the fuck you want to call it, just good shit! Get on it

I like the way fist pumping and flanging is a barrier to n00bs. When someone jumps up to play a set and start fisting the air and flanging the shit out of the tracks you know they're a fucking moron.
