:beat: for The Cat Lady for suggesting it, zippyshare is better


got a chance to listen to it, nice track selection but i wouldn't call it a mix, all you did was cue in the tracks and let them play, there are no transitions :ee:

Yeah, i know, but they are so, only one is a club mix, so no real chance for transitions you are used to.

sorry but those tracks are all over 6 minutes long, so that's definitely club mixes. those tracks can definitely be mixed properly, which would make the whole "set" much more interesting. as it is now, i get the same result by just letting winamp play the tracks.

Thanks for your Feedback!
How exactly i should do the mixing in the future?

beatmatched. if you mix a track with 138 bpm into one with 136 bpm, pitch the second one up to 138 bpm. mix the last minute of the last track into the first minute of the next track, putting beat on beat, letting them play at the same time.

Hmm, then i have a big problem, because i like playing tracks from the beginning to the end.

then you don't understand what club mixes are made for, or why they're even being made :)

That should actually help. At least the listening of tracks from start to finish, you understand it more. You get used to how the track builds up/winds down, what comes in/finishes where so when mixing the next track in you can time things better.

dfx, today's trance tracks are like club mixes, but in the 90's they were different to today and it's not depending on track length, it's the style and today's style is clubstyle, any dj is used to it, in my opinion a bit boring after a while when any track is made like a club mix.

And technically i do it only with Virtual DJ, no Mixing Hardware available.

not sure what you're talking about. all regular mixes of all tracks are meant to be mixed properly, that's why they all have a minute or two of both intro and outro. the only exception is the "radio edit" type of mixes, those are typically 3-4 minutes long, and many releases do include radio edits, meant to be played unmixed, as you did.

(of course it's a matter of preference if you play radio edits or the regular mixes when playing tracks unmixed - but in any case, this should not be called a set, or even less so a mix)

some releases do include a "club mix" in addition to an "original mix", but those are both properly mixable. the difference is usually the overall sound, but both can and should be properly mixed, and both are typically over 6 minutes long. this is true now and has been in the 90s as well.


And technically i do it only with Virtual DJ, no Mixing Hardware available.

yeah, so? that's exactly the point of using vdj, it's meant to enable you to mix properly without hardware, that's why it lets you adjust the bpm (and even does so itself), has line faders, a crossfader and the EQ phalanx. that's exactly why i told you that you cant mix properly with sam broadcaster, but with vdj you can.

i read your reply 3 times and still don't get your point, so i won't ask

only thing i wanna ask tho, is about the last comment you made....why do you need hardware, what is stopping you from mixing properly with VDj?

Arada
Feb 13th, 2009, 23:36
Hmm, maybe i missed something how to mix properly...
As i understand i have to cut the tracks at the start and at the end, i guess.
So they all are mixed one into the next one and that's what i don't like at any track.

dfx
Feb 14th, 2009, 01:33
you don't cut anything, you're just playing both together, one over the other, at the same time, overlapping the sounds.

Arada
Feb 14th, 2009, 03:01
Overlapping, okay, got you.

I checked it out.

DFX and you other DJs. You are right. He has to figure out beat matching. But once he does, I think he is on to something here. We've got 20 years of Trance behind us and no one plays the great stuff of yesterday. A classic trance show would be welcome, I think. Look at the response Deja Vu gets.

Arada. Don't stop. Your track selection was delightful. Learn how to beat match. Get a Classic Trance show here. A crowd will show up to dance to it. (kiss) :super::music::hug::cat:

I guess that you didn't read my post. I TOLD you NOT to stop. By clear definition, that means to try it again, this time using beat matching transitions. (kiss) :music::hug::cat:

People here are not going to beg you, so you can forget that if that's what you are looking for. :mask:

Arada
Feb 17th, 2009, 00:16
No Begging??
Hmm...
Okay, then i will do it without begging!
