:hmmm: So would using control vinyls and hardware mixer be hardware or software mixing?

that is correct =| well....i guess that applies for programs like ableton and mixmeister that are pretty much auto mixing software.

I had no idea this was the case. I used Mixmeister to put mine together and sent it in.

I don't think I would call MixMeister an auto mixing program. If it does, it's not something I know about. I've always put my mixes together but adjusting everything manually.

Mixmeister it's automatic, it's not real mixing however i find that i mix better with cdj's than with mixmeister, the transitions sound very rough on it...

Did anyone have any trouble while uploading their set onto the website? (www.contest.astateoftrance.com). We did everything correctly then name with no spaces (AkuandGhazaly) and the tracklist. We get to the upload page we browse for the file, click next, and it reaches 35-46% and just stops. Then a message appears "IO Error - Aku & Ghazaly ASOT 450 BedroomDJ Contest".. any ideas?? :S:S

We did write it without the & lol :) There are 3 pages
1. Name, Age, Country, Info
2. Tracklist
3. Upload

They dont let you go to the other page unless all the other pages are correct. We reach the upload page meaning everything is correct but the problem is with the upload for some reason :S

Last episode (ASOT 449) Armin said that they accepted links+tracklists sent to them via email. He also said the winner will be announced next week (This thursday) How will they do that if there will be no airing for the show? Or will they broadcast the event going on in toronto?

I got some pretty cool news that I thought I would share with you all. A few weeks back I entered into a bedroom DJ contest for the A State of Trance special episode 450. I didn’t think I had a shot, then just last night I got an e-mail saying I had made the final round of cuts, and to reply with my phone number. Seeing as how today is April 1st I thought for sure I was being pranked, but the reply-to e-mail was legit so I went with it anyways.
Much to my surprise I got a call this morning while at work from none other than Armin Van Buuren! I think I was in too much shock to be excited. I really had no idea what to say. You see the title of this post? Yea, that’s what I said, “Wow, that’s amazing news”. Though, if you listen back to when they played back the phone conversation on the live radio broadcast, I was about to scream “F&*$ Yea”, only to realize I was still at work. So I came across as an emotionless robot, the best comment I saw was comparing me to the Russian in Rocky IV. As soon as the phone hung up I yelled out pretty good, it was a really exciting day. I still thought I was being punk’d up until the point that I heard the phone call being played back on the radio broadcast. They played my winning mix to all the listeners (the streams were reporting more than 10,000 listeners), and I am being sent some free stuff. I have been all smiles since then. The end result will hopefully open up some doors so I can pursue this “hobby”, more like a life passion, to somewhere other than my bedroom.
