Thread: DJM-800 and Harmonic Mixing

    DJM-800 and Harmonic Mixing

    to everyone that owns a djm-800...

    the only reason why i would spend that much money on it is because it has the harmonic mixing feature/effect, but some people say that it distorts the sound too much to be usable. can anyone that owns one confirm this, or maybe even record a small sample of a track run thru that filter?

    i guess you mean he's using the general harmonic mixing technique, not that particular feature on the djm-800...

    It's totally unusable. You can only use 5% of the whole knobs range and even then it's almost impossible to set it back to it's original state.

    The easiest way would be Rapid Evolution or MixedInKey to get the key of your tracks.

    errrrrr totally TOTALLY false

    you should check your sources.

    seriously, most of the old school don't use it because they think it's cheating!!!

    if this is cheating, using a musical sheet in the concert is cheating too

    gosh..."hate" this kind of "old thinking"....

    I just do what I think sounds good, I sort by bpm, then if needed by genre.
    You might miss some choons that fit perfectly to your 1st track but are not totally harmonic.
    p.s. don't have a djm800 but heard the harmonic buttons don't sound too well.
